    The Endurance classics of the 24h of Le Mans, and the 24h of the Nurburgring are coming up on September 19th and 20th, and Septemeber 26th and 27th, respectively.
    And, traditionally, GTPlanet forums organise a 2.4h race on the tracks mentioned, right before the IRL event, as a way to celebrate it. However, much to my surprise, no such thing has happened this year, perhaps because said races took place on the original June date. That said, im hoping to fill in that missing gap with my own 2 hours and 40 minute races.

    The 2h40m of Le Mans will be held on Friday, 11th of September 2020 (one week before the Le Mans 24h), while the 2h40m of the Nurburgring will be held on Friday, 2nd of October (one week after the Nurburgring 24h).

    Lobbies will be open at 19:10 UK Time, and Qualifying will begin at 19:45 UK Time (Please check current time zone). You must be in the lobby by 19:45, or you will not be able to start the race.

    I do realise the Le Mans race will take place with a very short notice, but once again, I'd like to mention that i'm only doing this as no other races have been organised and that, had I known this would be the case, i would have prepared for this much earlier.

    You do NOT need to take part in both races. If you can only attend one, thats OK!

    Both races will be aimed for drivers of ALL skill levels. It's meant to be fun and have a relaxed feel to it. That being said, the racing needs to be fair and respectful. Also, i highly reccommend that drivers with a DR of A of higher choose to race on the top class, and that drivers with a DR of B or lower decide to race the lower paced class. Heavy damage will be turned ON, as i feel like a major point of Endurance Racing is to keep the car safe and out the of the walls. Yes! Heavy Damage at the Nurburgring 24h layout!

    --------------------------

    RACE SETTINGS:
    - Qualifying: 15 Minutes - all cars on track at the same time, like the IRL Le Mans Qualifying session this year.
    - Start: Rolling
    - Time duration: About 160 minutes (2h 40m) - It will be a lapped race due to GTSport settings' limitations. (48 laps - Le Mans, 19 laps - Nurburgring)
    Grid Order: Fastest First
    Boost: Off
    Slipstream Strength: Real
    Visible Damage: On
    Mech Damage: HEAVY
    Tyre Wear: 2x
    Fuel Depletion: 1x
    Initial Fuel: Default
    Grip Reduction: Real
    BOP: Multiclass - In Game Equivalent
    Tyres: Racing Hards
    Tuning: Prohibited
    Ghost: Off
    Shortcut Penalties: Weak
    Side Contact Penalty: Off
    Driving Aids Prohibited: Countersteering Assistance

    The classes for the Le Mans 2h40m race will be Gr1 (LMP1 cars only) and Gr3. It will be run with the in game ToD 11:00 Fine weather.
    The classes for the Nurburgring 2h40m race will be Gr3, and Gr4. It will be run with the in game ToD 22:30 Sunny. We will be using the in game BoP.

    We will race on the "with chickanes" layout and the "Nurburgring 24h layout", respectively.

    The 2h40m of Le Mans will be 48 laps long.
    The 2h40m of the Nurburgring will be 19 laps long.

    QUALIFYING SETTINGS:
    Will be set to x0 fuel and tyres to maximise time on track during qualifying.

    Remember to be respectful of other drivers on track and try to avoid unnecessarily excessive contact. Post race penalties may be applied if you don't.

    Le Mans only: If you get a penalty, you must serve it at the beggining of the following straight. Just move out of the racing line and serve it. And please, dont try to serve it a bit layer to gain time, lets make this equal and fair to everyone.

    Yeah, the teams account manager is still screaming at how much money the team has spent on this deal.

    Meanwhile the Chief Engineer is already itching to get started working with the car.

    As much as I'd love to run the Le Mans race, Friday's are a no go at the moment.

    No worries mate! I understand not everyone would be available. Is the Nurburgring one also out of the question? Cheers!
