Hey, (Player Name)! They're reviving an event that Michael used to race in: The 500! It's a 5-race world circuit, and each leg is a 100 miles endurance race. Even better, Michael has arranged us an Aston Martin Vantage GTE to use!

Well it looks like moderation saved the day again here. We're learning a lot about the car with these experiments, but it's costing us a few points each time. Hopefully we'll have the setup finalized for the last two legs.

I'm totally confident we can squeeze every last bit of juice from this car, and I think adding balance to my approach has been valuable. Let's take the last rounds head on!

Wait, I'm getting ahead of myself, we still have a practice day before the next championship event. A few interesting challenges at Indianapolis tomorrow should be all we need to prep for the big one at Catalunya.
