My first exposure to Le Mans was Race Driver Grid. My feeble middle-schooler mind exploded when I saw transition from midday to pitch black midnight then back to morning. Good times.
From memory you could change the race time on quick race mode, if you really wanted to it would let you go to 24 hours.It's a big coincidence. I started playing the first GRID again recently. Now there's this article talking about Le Mans.
I just wanted there to be a mod to increase the length of events in the game a bit and reduce money/reputation rewards, feels a little short, easy to make money and progress, specially Le Mans, on career it's only a 12 minutes event, I wish it was at least 24m, maybe 48. Longest endurance I did in a game was 4h in GT5. Prepared myself, went to the bathroom, made my chair more comfortable, and did it without pausing.
Because the singleplayer mode had prerequisites, and forcing everyone to do 24 hours in order to beat the campaign mode just doesn't sound right. So the option is there, if you want to do it at your own leisure.What's the point in doing it without a reward, in a game with a career mode?
