    [​IMG]In February of 2014, 9 teams from around the world came together at a forest in Germany. Weaving throughout that forest, was a circle of road no wider than three meters. The Green Hell. Over 140 corners spanning over 15 miles. The teams lined up in double file. The two Mercedes, red and blue, led the way. Slowly, they worked their way around the track. As the pace car peeled into the pits, the green flag was shown. The drivers revved their engines and they were gone. Racing at the limit for the next 24 hours. This wasn’t a test of endurance, this was a test of speed. Who dared to push the boundaries, and who pushed too far. It wasn’t until the very last seconds that the winners emerged: The blue and yellow Audi saw the flag before all others.

    Mere hours after the race had finished, the teams were raring to go again, and so they did. One year later, the teams lined up and began their first trip around the track. Some were veterans who wore battle scars from the previous year’s event. The others were rookies, raring to pit themselves against the very best. And so, like clockwork, the green flag fell again and the cars sped off. Each team met their own issues throughout the race. Some tired from fatigue, some made rookie mistakes, and some tested their luck and took it too far. Each team had a shot at the victory at different points in this race. Some fell back in the night, only to surge back past their rivals when the sun came up. We waited eagerly for the fog to clear. And then from the Green Hell emerged the white BMW, waving the flag of Australia.

    Now it’s time for the third chapter in this epic story, and you can be a part of it.

    Well I'm sure us guys at INF will be more than happy to join in some VLN events. Whether or not we'll be able to take it to the 24 again will be interesting to see.

    I'm sure there would be a few people nearby the might be interested. At the worst they might be a couple of hours away and it's only for one weekend out of the entire year that you will need to get together to race :)

    If there's room I would like to race in one or two of the pre races. The next one falls on the day of another championship race for me so it won't be the 4/5th Dec race.

    I'll lobby a friend to see if he will race the 24hr with me and get back to you within a week.

    I got to drive my Z4 around the Green Hell for the first time since the N24 and although very rusty, it was like I never stopped practicing. You guys have know idea how excited that VLN is back to lead us up to that special race around the clock. March can't come soon enough! I wish everyone the best of luck through these VLN races!:cheers:

    No problems, the VLN races will only be for the teams entered in the N24. But if you can make one of the Pre-VLN races next week, you are welcome to race that weekend without having a team yet.

    I'm a bit rusty as well, but I've tried different cars to the Z4 and I have to say that I'm feeling a lot more comfortable in a different car and it's allowing me to be a little more attacking and drop my times as a result. definitely looking forward to getting stuck into this again and racing alongside everyone again!

    Ok, I'll not be doing the big race. So carry on regardless. I'll watch it on youtube. Last year was a great laugh.

    As there seems to be so many grid vacancies for both events will the restrictions for how many drivers per team still be in place?

    Restrictions will now be lifted for this weekend.

    @rcb929 @LordZ1978 @Glenalz81, are there any more drivers from your teams that will want to race this weekend?

    Looks like a light field for race 1, but at least there's a few more signed up for race 2.
