I've found these all pretty easy really. Only trouble I had was using the Pug HDi on the 'ring. Kept sliding and snapping, resulting in a spin. Been using the Bentley now for a bit, and the Courage Hybride and finding it real simple. =)

Toyota GT-One T202 worked for me for this Seasonal, that ring was a true pain at first, not much driven on that one with hilariously fast cars, AI minolta was quick at first but caught it at Carousel turn.
I really hope we will get Rally seasonals too someday, seems like seasonals are going for faster and faster cars, hope there wont be X1 seasonals..... yikes.

Yes - Rally Car seasonals would be awesome, but I was just thinking a few days ago that it would be cool to have an X2010 seasonal as well. Why not? I have 3 of them and never drive them because they don't qualify in any existing seasonals (I don't think... ) and aside from the Vettel challenge (which isn't really a race) there are no races for them within the game.
Sure it's a ridiculous car if you're only into driving realistic race cars, but they put it in the game - would be nice if there was... something... useful to do with it (aside from using it to grind in B-spec). At least for the Ferrari F1s there is seasonal event - I actually enjoy that one a lot. I often forget how fast those things are after grinding in regular cars for a few weeks, then I jump back into an F1... whoah... hang on!!!

I thought this was a great Seasonal Event. It was about time we had a new event in which to use our LMP1 and Group C cars. No tuning was needed just RM tyres for Suzuka. I used the following circuit-car combinations:
Laguna Seca // Mazda 787B
Nordschleife 24h // Toyota GT-one
Fuji Speedway // BMW V12 LMR
Monza // Peugeot 908 HDi FAP
Suzuka // Audi R10 TDI.
The only one I did not win at the first attempt was Suzuka as the Audi R10 snapped under braking on a couple of corners.

For anyone who's struggling buy (from the OCD) or use the Pescarolo C60 Hybride and use these settings courtesy of Law93.
Stage 3 turbo
TC 1 (personal choice)
Aero: 60/100 (buy a wing option for 200 000 in GT Auto for this) < Never knew you could
Trans: just make sure it suits the track
I wish I had started with this car now.. All the other cars I was frightened when they got a twitch on and would spin and lose my place never to get it back again, this I'm happy to let it slide and play with it and still win.
Appreciate you posting this. I thought the Hybride was the worst car of the lot but this setup makes a helluva difference. Was nice to just be able to race without having to fight the car so much. Kudos.
Out of curiousity, I tested this setup on the 908 HDi FAP but due to some differing limitations available in the setup it looked like this:
Stage Turbo 3 (or 2)
Aero: 60 / 85 (No wing options for this car)
LSD: 5 / 7 / 8
Height: -10 / -20
Springs: 15.5 / 17.0
Ext: 10 / 10
Com: 8 / 8
Roll 1 / 3
Camber: 0.5 / 0.5
Toe: -0.29 / -0.18
Brakes: 8 / 5
The FAP was much better to drive, way more stable. However, you still have to be careful if you clip grass with a rear tyre.. but with the improved performance and good/quick reactions, spinouts can be avoided more easily. I wasn't worried about that as before since the car was sticking to the track like it's supposed to.
