    Harsk World Motorsports needs one driver. If you want, you can drive for our team.

    I love what this has become. I watched the 2014 season constantly but unfortunately never got into it. Going to give this a go for sure!

    I'll be very happy to join if any team needs a driver.

    I've been waiting for a race series like this in GT6! I've been doing most of my racing on iRacing lately, so this is a good reason to come back.
    I'll race for a team, or I'll start a team if there are enough free agents

    Harsk World Motorsports is looking for drivers, really good drivers! HWM plans to participate in full season of endurance! (until my PS3 is fixed, I'll just sit out as team manager only, just in case that my PS3 isn't fixed in Christmas)

    And yet I don't see your team listed in the first post as one which has applied for and been granted a franchise entry yet. Might be an idea to hold off on recruiting just yet.


    In theory I'll be commentating on as many of these events as possible over the season, but I also quite like driving in endurance races. I can, of course, do both at once... That'll be fun if nothing else :D

    So if any established team wants an additional driver for one of the longer events, or any formative team wants to include me as a driver, please feel free to let me know. Don't just rush in because I'm a GTP Admin - I'm crap.

    I most definitely want to do one of these events before I graduate and go off to college. I will keep in touch with this and possibly get a team together one day.

    Sorry for double post, but I started recruiting drivers for my team.

    Redbull Rider, Hour Glass, Ash and Sinhue: I have sent you a PM to propose you to be my teamates in GTP Endurance Races.

    We are interested!
    But we are discuss about class, cars and team members.

    I think that double round during the one weekend and with two different tracks isn't good idea.
    Teams need more time for testing and ... private life :)

    When You public standard of the race weekend schedule?

    I am after a drive in A) LMP1 B) GT3 C) TCN-1
    I compete in the highest RaceOnOz Division in Australia, so i am within the top 16 out of 110 members in Australia. I have alot of experience in Gran Turismo 6 and am able to push a car as hard as i need to get the results :D In terms of availability i would most likely be able to attend every race depending on times of course.

    Next suggestion about track limits - better idea is only one rule: TWO WHEEELS MUST BE ON THE TRACK!
    What do You think?

    Then you might have people arguing over what is track and what isn't, better to be specific.

    Hi mate

    Team GHH will most likely be recruiting 2-3 more members due to the scope of the series.

    Our pedigree is well known, if you wish to express an interest in a position shoot me a PM, same goes for you @Famine :tup:

    Edit: the below is meant for everyone else, I realised it reads like it's directed at Beau and Famine which it is not.

    I will be contacting those who I have interest in recruiting so please do not PM me asking to be considered unless you are VERY, VERY good at driving VERY consistently and in a heavy damage environment.

    Please note we will not simply be adding drivers without going through a process. It won't be long and drawn out but I won't be accepting anyone without seeing them drive.

    Team Rosters can be comprised of up to 8 Drivers, with the 6h races only requiring 2 min and 3 max the option is open to field completely different driver line ups for those events. Or you could think of it as a 24 hour event with 12 hours off.

    As Silverstone has limited 'Time of Day' the event will run for 6 hours on the Saturday, and then 6 hours on the Sunday, with about 10 hours off in-between.

    For D24 expect a Preview Program early in the new year. Practice Qualifying sessions to be held on the weekend before the race. And a start time around the mid afternoon, local time.

    Over the last year or so we have seen motorsport governing bodies such as the FIA and the MSA (UK) employ a much stricter set of Track Limit regulations, particularly aimed at grass roots motorsport.

    As we are striving to keep as close to realism as possible, and want to set an example, we will be implementing the same regulations.

    by the way - could you set up some more races for amateurs? Like, not only LM, GT3 cars etc. but normal, average cars, say to 500 - 550pp, 3 - 4hrs races (or longer) - I think there'd be plenty of people to sign up for this kind of championship

    Im new to this forum, but i've been playing Gran Turismo faithfully since it's 3rd installment. I'm confident in my abilities as a racer. I don't gloat about my abilities on account of i let other people/players judge my ability. If any team is looking for a racer/tuner please feel free to email me at titaniumx34@gmail.com; as i would immediately get a notification from my iPhone. I'll periodically check back on here, but I can be reached easier via email. Thank you for reading this and thanks for your consideration.

    I will be putting myself forward as an open driver. I am looking for a team that can bring me good results to add to my record. I am not looking for a team that is concentrated on winning, I am looking for a team that will provide for their drivers whether it be setup help, encouragement or general knowledge.

    I will put myself forward as a driver that is generally accepted to be clean, knowledgable and witty.

    To offer, please send me a PM over GTPlanet or PlayStation Network, my PSN name is GTP_NarcoticZ.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: I am specifically looking for an LMP2 or a GT3 drive as I specialise in that field. :)

    We have a group of local racers that do endurance races each week and would love to participate. Would like to be considered for a franchise and have plenty of drivers at the ready to complete the season. Discussions being held about where we'd like to slot in.

    This is what we've been waiting for since our own GT5 24 Hours of Nurburgring.
