    During the course of this year's GT Academy a new type of car was introduced to the Gran Turismo franchise, the Nissan Zytek Z11SN, a modern LMP2 car that raced at Le Mans.

    As far as race cars go, it's got a low barrier to entry, being easy to drive in near-stock form with just the right balance of aero and mechanical grip to reward drivers that prefer either.

    As such it makes for a very good one-make racer, and now you have an opportunity to compete against drivers from all over the world in a one-off event showcasing the car. Welcome to the Zytek 1 Hour Endurance :)

    • 1 Hour Endurance Race at Nurburgring GP/F

    • Dawn to Dusk racing, with variable weather (low chance of rain).

    In-game penalties affected the final running order.

    @FutureF1 and @Zolon32 were given 100 seconds due to a tyre compound mixup.

    Thanks for the responses, if we get 1 or 2 more this will certainly go ahead :)

    The date is pretty much locked in, as I don't want this race to conflict with any major weekend-based championships, and I'm out of the country the week after.

    Would love to enter mate, thanks for the tag but unfortunately I leave for work at that time locally for me, so I won't have time for it.

    I would consider entering but then again, it is my 18th birthday that day so I might not be able to enter for obvious reasons.

    Since I'm feeling more rejuvenated to do some online racing, I'm in. Been a while since I've competed in anything organized so I could use the rust knock off.

    No worries if you don't want to enter. I chose the Nurburgring GP track as I want this event to have a lor barrier to entry. if it's a success it can certain be re-run on other/longer circuits.

    Would be good to have my ORA rival for this, let me know if you can attend :)

    Good to hear, keep me posted via this thread :)

    No worries, thanks for responding.

    Hope so too, post an update if you can attend :)

    Okay, thanks for letting me know. See you for ORA WEC soon :)

    Understandable, maybe another time then. if this event succeeds more can be run.

    Excellent, I'll add you to the list.

    Nice one!

    Hello PJ, sorry if I'm asking questions the answers to which are self evident, but I'm not good at navigating around stuff on computers, seem to have some sort of mental block.

    Firstly, I'd better say, I'd like to join if I may.

    Now, to the questions........ what rate of depletion will apply please? And, will you be having full damage?

    That's about it for now, cheers, Zo.

    Oh, yes, I knew there was something else, what is the club number please?

    That really is it, I think...... cheers again, Zo.

    Hello Zo.

    If you look up the Lobby Settings (see spoiler button in the top post) you will find that information.

    Depletion is Very Fast, Damage is Light.

    The club number is 1024917.

    Fuel lasts 15-17 minutes, so 3 stops max.

    RM tyres should last just about that too.
    RS tyres could only last 12, but even with that in mind they were too fast compared to RMs.

    This is a system that I used for a GT500 season recently and it worked rather well.

    Yeah. So long as the car matches the specs in the OP you can tune it however you like.
