This is the second time this has happened to me. I don't have any of the cars for todays race. (I have 187 cars). Wouldn't you think that GL wouldn't include a car that you can't get BP's for anyone or at least include one that didn't cost over 5000 TKs?

.
Has the McLaren never been available for credits to you? That was a car worth farming for if so.

Not that I can remember. The only McLarens I don't have are the 675 and the P1. I never thought the P1 was worth spending over 5000 tokens for it.

At least these cars can be purchased from the garage. (Albeit at outrageous prices) Once they had a sprint with cars no longer in the game 9FFs etc... You could not even obtain the cars if you wanted. I know that doesn’t help you, but it just shows the trend. They really need to stop picking cars and just make sprints for classes and you can choose to use whatever cars you like from that class.

McLaren 570S, maxpro, unboosted, 2+ seconds below target.
It seems GL has made this TLE consistently easier than before.
I don't remember being able to get all three trophies, every day, unboosted, easily. It started about 3-4 weeks ago.
I have no complaints, I like easy tokens...
I know that many hate this TLE for fair reasons though.

Yep, this one has been better for times. I did the latest with an unboosted max/pro P1. Also, 2 seconds under best time. But I’m still in the camp with @blaine58. These are still geared to specific cars at max/pro tunes. You may not even have the cars and if you do, you may not have them fully max/pro.

I still firmly believe they need to stop choosing cars. Pick a class or a rank and set the times; so that, a mid level car from that class at MAX (and NOT FULL PRO) car can achieve the times unboosted. Then let the player pick the car they want to run. Newer players have an actual chance to win and veteran players can run a lower tuned car for a challenge if they like. More fun for everyone.

Quit trolling the newer players... Seriously...

p.s. Lower the fuel req to 1 for these. They are short, quick runs. Logically, they should not require much fuel. And gameplay/fun wise, you should be able to run a bunch of them back to back.

What a nice post! Completely agree with everything and well summarized. This was the main idea of this TLE. 
GL, just stop trying to make money from a fresh air !
When everything goes wrong, CC is your last hope !

Did Patagonia with the F1 XP-5 max/3-0-5-1 unboosted - 31:481.

This has been the most fair sprint is a while. But still punishes new players. I think all the cars for this one were available only through special events or BPs except possibly the P1. How many newer players will have these cars with tuning close to max/pro? I doubt many will. These sprints really are just for the long time players. Too bad really...
