I'm interested!
I've never participated in an endurance / driver swap event in iRacing. Although I've done many races in iRacing.
Should I do some endurance race until the 24h event? If I should, I happy to join a team in a Le Mans Endurance event.

If it's possible, I'd like to drive a GTE car.

Awesome David, nice to have you in the team.
Driver swap is really simple, but it's definitely worth to drive some team events. Next one is GT Endurance at Nurburgring 3 hours or ELMS for 6 hours at Sebring. Both events are next weekend. Just put your name in one of the threads.

Unfortunately I'll work on next weekend. But I'll make it next time.

@UnstopaPaul you owe me this one ;)
wait, what? :D
Well, I should be C rating when 2019 season 1 starts.not sure if I can use the DP in races yet. Not so keen on a 24 being my first endurance experience though. I wonder is there something I can do in-between now and mid Jan? Take part in a 6hr or something? Turns out work is not so busy between 24th December and 1st Jan ;)

You need the B-license for the 6h races and there are no IMSA endurance races, only ELMS with GTEs and so on.
But you can do the solo IMSA races for practice.

My first iRacing race - yes, literally my first ever race, was the Le Mans 24 hour. I'd spent less than 3 hours in iRacing beforehand. You'll have a great team of people around you, helping you through it. Trust me, it's a fantastic experience and one you shouldn't hesitate to get involved in, rather than shy away from :)

What Cluck said. Don't worry too much! Just practice and get consistent yourself and you'll never let anyone (or yourself) down. My first race over an hour in iRacing was the LM24 and I ran 8 hours without any issue. Believe in yourself! You can do 6hr races for eLMS if you bump your license. That'd be good training but it's not entirely needed.

So, should I be looking at Porsche or the DP? Happy to buy either. @t0daY can't tell if you are desperate for my skills in your team/DP car (desperate being the operative word) or just for me to sign up in general :)

I'm ready to team up @t0daY :angelic:

Alright, let's count me in for this :) I got the DP and Daytona. I was going to do IMSA this season anyway, so that fits perfectly to provide practice before mid-jan.
So DP for me, crazy as that might be.

I have so many things to learn/questions around setups, team racing, what keys I should be binding. I've never even done a pitstop so far in iRacing :D. I'll be honest I'm terrified about what the quality of my driving might be in the night time stints. Is it likely to be a 3 or 4+ man team? I'm looking for some kind mentors :)

Guys, be aware that the teams are "provisional" atm. We will find a spot for every driver, but that can mean, that we have to adjust it here and there.
