    It's an invitational event that unlocks when you meet the criteria.
    It will appear in every season, and can be ignored if you don't want to race it.

    I'm really looking forward to coming back into the Endurance series on this game. I had a blast doing the AEC championship. Even though I lost the championship it was still a blast. Just gonna try to complete the task for formula B and A and then I'll be back here. Instead of driving a LMP2 this time I'm gonna drive a GT3 vehicle.

    Good luck !
    Don't forget to watch your mirrors, especially when approaching the chicanes. The LMP's are so fast and brake so late !

    Oh trust me I will lol. I never been in that situation before. When I was driving LMP2 all I had to avoid was the LMP1 cars. So it's gonna be a little new to me but I should catch on.

    I have a question. Would appreciate your experience on helping shed light before I continue.
    Just finished Season 3 and the next season is Season 4. I have the following contract offers, amongst others:
    Endurance GT Class
    Formula B
    LMP2
    Formula C
    Formula Gulf
    LMP3 Semi Pro Class

    Questions are:
    1. Are all of those endurance races (which I suspect)...eg: 24 hours plus
    (If not all, which ones are, which ones not).

    2. If they are (or some are) long distance 24 hours/plus races are each event in the calendar for it the required amount of 24 hours plus duration or the earlier races shorter laps/times, leaving the long as hell ones towards the end of season as usual?

    Reason being, while I want to race with more of those high end cars I just don't have the patience for spending 2-3 plus hours for any one event.....unless it's mainly towards the end of respective season.

    Note: I have duration slider set at the lowest 1% which allows me better to deal with the amount of normal/shortened time and amount of laps but I know the endurance races (24 hours plus) do take 2-3 plus hours even at 1%.
    Just can't deal with each race 2-3 plus hours so if that is the case please let me know, or if the prior races are shorter (which would be fine) leaving the longer laps/duration to the end of season.

    I'm doing 24hr Lemans right now LMP2.
    I have the slider at 1%, the race length is 2hrs.

    All the 24 hr endurance races will be 2 or less hours at 1%.

    The others I've done so far are 30mins each at 1%

    Hope that helps man.

    My main concern was if all the races in the respective calendar for those contract offers I mentioned were going to be 24/plus hours (endurance) races, i.e: 2 hours/plus @ 1%.

    I couldn't wait any longer for an answer so I chose to accept an LMP2 contract offer. Was very happy to see so far the races have been the usual 3 or so laps as I'm going along (think I've reached February or March now).
    I don't mind if towards the end by December there's a "24 hour" race but dreaded if Jan-Dec would have been "24 hour".

    I found I could 'sleep' the ps4 and leave it on standby during a long race - pausing first, of course on a long straight. I used this during the LeMans 24 at 1%.

    The only snag was sometimes it got my thrustmaster wheel in a right tiz occasionally.

    Has anyone completed the Nurburgring Endurance Trophy yet? Its the GT 24hr race you unlock by winning the GT Tri Nations championship at the Nurburgring combined. Want to try it. Are the pitstops still buggy? Any info would be great.....
