    So is there any kind of (live) attendance bound to it or do I just pick a car, some drivers and the strategy and that‘s about it?

    If that‘s the case I‘ll go with the following:
    #70 Ferrari 488 - Marcel Fässler - Chris Harris
    #80 Porsche 911 RSR - Nobuteru Taniguchi - Sabine Schmitz
    #90 Aston Martin Vantage - Mika Häkkinen - Ken Nomura

    No live attendance is required. Just pick a car, drivers, strategy, setup, and thats it.

    btw you are about 2m credits over the budget of 50m for the AM class

    The race will be run on rFactor (PC).

    This race has undergone a reboot due primarily to issue with the original mod being used. The race will use a new mod which has templates which allow for custom liveries. Alot of rules have changed. The drivers you originally picked are reserved for you if you wish to keep them. But budgets and driver hiring rules have changed. If you have any questions please ask. Thank you.
