This is an exhibition event outside of the ongoing TPC GT Championship and is based around the Spa 24 Hours which became a GT event in 2001. Setups will be open and the weather and time of day will be an added challenge. We will cover an entire 24-hour cycle in 90 minutes for the full experience. Two tire choices will allow for many different strategies.
Schedule
The race is currently scheduled for Saturday, February 11th.

The lobby opens for free practice at 16:00 EST. Qualifying will begin at 16:45 EST and will last for exactly 10 minutes. A break of a few minutes will be taken after qualifying to allow people to choose a tire strategy and make any adjustments necessary to their setup. The race will begin under the same conditions as were used in qualifying. The race will last for 90 minutes, with a buffer at the end to allow everyone to finish.

Track limits are the white lines or kerbing. The green astroturf/painted areas are considered off-track. At least two wheels must be on the track at all times. If you gain a position by going off track, give it back at your earliest convenience.

Also be aware that we are using the 24H Layout for Spa, meaning pit stops will use both lanes and be very long. Keep this in mind when planning a strategy.

Car Selection
Maximum of 4 entries per car
Unless dictated, all settings are open. Racing Medium and Racing Hard tires are options. Please also purchase Racing Intermediate and Racing Wet tires as a precaution. Since you will be running at night, I also suggest buying better headlights.

Please send a friend request to my PSN (The359) as well since the lobby will be set to friends only.
Please note, for those that are currently participating in TPC GT, the following things have been changed for this race only:
  • A new number board has been uploaded, please use it instead of the standard TPC GT board. A mandatory windshield banner is now also in use.
  • The Toyota Supra has been added, loosely based on the Supra GT that participated in BPR Global Endurance GT Series in 1996.
  • Medium Tires are now available. Hards remain an option. There is no mandatory requirement to use both.
  • Fuel consumption has been upped to 2x, while initial fuel has also been upped. Tire wear has also been increased to 5x to help vary the strategies between Hard and Medium tires.

Love the effort you put into this. I am not 100% sure I can do it, but I'm super interested. As a precaution can you put me up as reserve?

I’ll tentatively enter. Lots of Diablos and the Corvette seems to be the least popular choice so I’ll go with that.

I have a question: Am I allowed to place the number plate at the front? I mean the plate from the car customisation shop. Just in case.
