Maybe also worth tagging the @iRacing_Members directly ;) Last year we had 4 cars starting this race, can we do this again? :)

The first few weeks of Jan are going to be nuts for me at work, so if it's on the 25/26th onwards then count me in for either the 488 GTE, or one of the GT3s.
The race will most likely be on the 18th. The IRL race is on the weekend after and the iRacing race was always the weekend before.

That would be a shame, will be doing crazy hours in the build up to it, so will have no time to practice/get used to iRacing again (and will probably be dead on race day).

If I can't drive I can be on hand during the daytime to spot/be cheerleader.

Also, if I can't drive, I could possibly loan my account to someone, if they cover the subscription renewal. I have the Ferrari GTE and a few of the GT3s.

I'll drive the event, but it's possible that one or two friends (Constantin Tscharf is one of them) will visit me and we'll drive together. That'll probably mean, that we will get DQed, because we'll do it with my account. I'm still waiting for a confirmation from the two. If we do it like that, then there is an open spot if someone wants to join.

If you get another driver you can switch account whenever he is driving, shouldnt get you DQd then

Interested :) I have all cars bar Ford and Porsche.

If anyone was wondering, this is one week after VEC Imola (rf2).

This year I planned to do most of the special endurance races. But unfortunately I had to stop sim racing in summer.

After 3 months of lack of racing I returned. Immediately started iRacing with the MX5 and I have to say the long pause had a good effect on my speed. Now I'm in top 5 in top splits fighting for the win every time.

My plan hasn't changed, so I'd like to do all special races next year starting with Daytona.

I hope I can do well in the GT cars, too.

TL;DR:

I'm in!!!

I have Ferrari, Porsche GTE and Merc GT3

iRacing fair share rule is 25% of an equal share - which means that even if you have only "2" drivers in the team, one driver has to do minimum 3 hours.

Thx for the heads up, but i know all that :cool:. Don't forget, that this is my 9th 24 hour race.
Problem is, that we drive on one PC and one account. Even with a second account, we'll loose too much time when we switch to the other. On the other hand, I'm driving with a real alien. Maybe he can gain so much time :oops:
