The seasonal events was updated yesterday and this time it’s all about Japanese 80′s Classics. In a change of events, the Online Collector’s Dealership did not update. Read on to find out the details.

Japanese 80s Festival

These are the races in the Japanese 80′s Festival:
* Tsukuba Circuit – 5 Laps
* Tokyo R246 – 3 Laps
* Cape Ring – 2 Laps
* Clubman Stage Route 5 – 5 Laps
* Eifel (Kart) 103B (Change Time) – 3 Laps

Requirements:
* PP: Max 550
* Year: 1980 or Later, 1989 or Eearlier
* Country: Japan

Suggested Car:
I chose to use the Nissan Fairlady Z 300ZX TT 2seater (Z32) ’89 which is a premium car that can be bought for Cr. 39,500 in the Dealership. Since the max PP is 550, I gave it a performance parts in the tuning shop until it showed 549 PP. This to find out the maximum XP/Min for each race. I also fitted it with Soft Racing Tyres and an oil change.

All the races lasted roughly 5 minutes. The rewards range from Cr. 78,000 to Cr. 87,000 and 12,000 to 15,000 experience points. The final two races in the series can net you roughly 3,000 experience points per minute, which is quite good. If you don’t plan to repeat these races, there is no reason to upgrade the car to the extents I did. All the details can be found in the Race Series Guide.

Also worth mentioning for people that like to drift is one of the new drifting events. The track there is Circuit de la Sarthe 2005 (No Chichanes). That’s right, you can now drift for an eternity on the longest straight in the game.
