One of the most ambitious online races ever organized is currently taking shape right here in GTPlanet’s forums. It’s a 24-hour, online endurance challenge at the famed Nurburgring, complete with every possible real-world challenge, including tire wear, fuel-consumption, damage, weather, and time change.
15 teams of 3 to 4 (local) team members will compete in real-time during the event, which will be streamed live February 25-26, 2012, here on GTPlanet. The event currently has over $100 in prizes up for grabs, including GTPlanet Premium subscriptions, trophies, merchandise, and more.
As event organizer Kurt forewarns, this competition isn’t for casual fans, and will challenge participants in many unique ways compared to other online events. If you think you have what it takes and would like to join or organize a local team, head over the official forum topic and review the official rules and schedule.
Good luck to all the entrants! For the rest of you, stay tuned for more event details as February draws near.
