Hey guys. I hope this is the correct place to post this.

The Digital Endurance Series (DES) offers Team events ranging from 9h to 24h team endurance races. You can take part with teams consisting of two up to five drivers and will race multiple stints.
Since team racing in one lobby is not possible in Gran Turismo Sport, a specific number of stints will be driven. Like in a real endurance race, every stint will be completed with a different driver of a team. After the stint, the gaps will be noted and accumulated, defining the grid order for the next stint. The team with the smallest accumulated "gap" will win the race.
If you are part of a league or a larger group of friends and enjoy endurance races, you're welcome to compete and have fun :)

DES offers:
1. A championship in GT Sport and, later on, GT7. Races are every 6 to 7 weeks.
2. Single Class or Multi Class races from 9h to 24h.
3. A community with +150 racers from many different European countries (of course everybody from every country is welcome).
4. Live Streaming and highlight videos of the races.
5. F1 endurance series (in progress).

The next race will take place in 2 weeks, from 23.10.2021 to 24.10.2021. It will be a "24h Le Mans" multi class race with the 2016 LMP1 cars and all Gr.3 cars.
Qualifying for the race will take place a week prior to the race, on 16.10.2021 at 20:00 CEST. It will be a 20 minutes qualifying session held in the practice mode. The fastest time of each team will be noted and will define the grid order for the first stint.
The race will consist of seven 3h stints, the first stint beginning on 23.10. at 16:00 CEST, with 30 minute breaks between each stint. The final stint will end on 24.10. at 16:00 CEST.
