Thank you Andy for taking some time to introduce yourself to other members of the league.

Glad you have found it enjoyable here :)

So far 12 of us has shown interest. There is probably more even among the membership.

Time might create some difficulties for me. Lets say we start around our usual time. Race would start 18 GMT (league time), so when 3 hours race would be over it would be already 21 GMT so 11 PM for me (during summer time it would be already midnight). I would avoid driving on that/those final hour(s) as I can't concentrate on such late hour anymore :P I'm probably not able to spend the whole 3 hours on the server either. I'm sure many have somewhat similar situation when it comes to endurance racing.

yes. why should multiclass be a pre-requisite for endurance racing?

Multi-class racing is not mandatory, but I and others have wanted to move toward multi-class racing once we had enough drivers on grid consistently. I don't think we are there yet. Perhaps we do a one-off race after the gt3 series to try it out. Kind of like the one-off endurance race.

In the WEC in real life only 30 cars are on the grid. We have over 20 cars right now, so I think we have enough right now.
In the CMS league there were only 12-15 on the grid, this was also almost enough for a good competion on most tracks.

I am really looking forward to a test race after the GT3 season!
Racing into the dark with fast LMPs and slower GTs, perfect  8)

Over 20 cars in sprint races doesn't unfortunately equal to over 20 teams in endurance racing. I don't have much interest in endurance racing where I would be the only driver of my team. I could do 1,5-2h race by myself but I would much rather have for example 3 hours race with two teammates.

That said, we definitely should try some endurance racing in some form.

You could combine mods. At racedepartment I've done races with a gt mod and a separate lmp (Rebellion in that case) together. Worked out quite well.
 
Tom's suggestion of 1 hour race with full day night cycle would be great as a try out of racing at dusk and dqwn. Night is quite ok but visibility at dusk and dawn is poor.

I have done this once, I think it was back when I ran my own server many years ago :D

1 hour is maybe too fast to experience the full 24h cycle, but I'm not against it either.

Imo there definitely needs to be multiclass in endurance racing. Or did Rick mean that we could replace lmp2 with gt3?

We could arrange 3-4 hours long endurance event to see how it goes. I think 6 prototype teams and 10 GT teams would be enough. So minimum of 32 drivers is required. Teams could have 2-4 drivers each (free choice). Stint lenght is probably limited to 45-60 mins due to tires. In 3 hours race one driver would need to do 45mins-1,5h depending on team size and in 4 hour race 1h-2h.

Possibility of technical failures are part of endurance racing. How good is rf2 simulating any (random) technical failures?

I like the idea. 6 hours with 3 drivers could be good.

Only problem I can see would be to get enough interest. I would imagine this requires almost 50 drivers. Plus is there good enough endurance mod around in rf2...

Interesting new info on you Julian. Sounds like a cool job.

I'm turning 32 soon too. I'm a lawyer by profession. No track experience for me, just regular driving in traffic. There are few tracks here in Finland so maybe someday. Wouldn't pick Nords as my first track day experience necessarily, could be costly :D

I'm gonna ask if you can be added

Once the pack is final I will post the link here so those who want to install it manually can do so. Note that this comes as an update to the cars. Once you have the pack installed you can't enter other servers using the gt3 cars. Luckily it's easy to uninstall/reinstall the pack in case you want to jump in to another server using gt3 cars at some point. Our aim is to enable skin transfers again at some point when we are sure the server can handle skin transfers for ~30 drivers. Might be the new server is already up to the job but we don't want to risk it at this point.

Hi Harmer,

Glad you said hello. Always good to learn things about our members. Makes fighting them on track more interesting.

Take a look around and feel free to ask for help if needed. We hope you enjoy your time here!
