yeah, lets hope some more people sign up, I like to do these for fun so it isn't the end of the world if I cannot race, but I would still quite like too! atm running with 2 is impossible.

I can't. After Darksi and Ben withdrew, I signed up for a trackday on the 20th.

Can't blame you, have fun!

I will do some training and development in the AMG GT3 this week focused on the 24h race.
So I'm also still open to have someone from this forum join our race.

We have currently 1x4 team and 2x3 teams. What is everyone thinking about building 2x5 teams? Please let us know :)

I would be cool with 2x5, takes the pressure off a bit with only 5 hours per driver.
I'm not sure how one would devide the teams, I know almost everyone from the main team, but I am also sure I would be the slowest of that team.
So coming down to speed, my preference would be in the pink team.

I have mixed feelings about it, firstly it's good because everyone is fresh and gets plenty of rest, however, it has its flaws.

The setup has to please an extra driver and also throughout a 24h race, drivers get to know the drivers of the other teams, you stick a 5th driver into the mix and it's kind of an unknown, yeah some stuff may never happen, but there is always that risk.

But I am 50/50 on it. I don't want to see drivers without a drive, but at the same time, I have my reservations.

Hmm for me the race loses all its character with teams of 5. No need to plan it through, no problem with sleep, all very relaxed and for me personal the worst I don't feel like I can contribute a lot if I only drive the car for such a small fraction of the race. It's a special event so for me it should be something special, a challenge, somewhat hard work... I'm sure I would still race because I haven't been able to a lot lately, but I my preference is clearly driving in a team of 3 or 4.

Okay cool. But please bare in mind that there are several drivers who can not commit to a team of 3. At the same time building 2 teams with 4 each, 2 gets left out completely. Just another thought from me.

Yeah sure, totally understand. I'll give everything no matter what the size of my team is.

I did my first 24h race with 4 other drivers/friends. It was nice but it kinda killed the endurance feeling cuz you get way more time to sleep and its pretty much just drive 4-5 hours with alot of break between. With 4 its the best, with 3 its possible but its maybe the other side of the horse compared to 5 man team. Obv if we keep 2 x 4 driver teams 2 gonna be left out what would be pretty bad so that cannot be the case. so if 5 man teams are the only way to go then its fine.

Do not get me wrong but I won't decide over all. We should find all together a common sense :)

If @RdMracer wants to race with the slower guys and i would be happy to go with the faster guys, as i have raced with some of them before, but from what i have read, it is weather you would like me there, a simple yes or no so i can try and fin another drive if not.

Yes @t0daY I know.

We as a community are racing and there isn't a really fast team and a slower team, although on paper the other team may be quicker.

Both teams I think are aiming for around a 3k split so if both drivers can cope with that then fine, otherwise its tricky. If its a choice of racing down sub 2k I personally wouldn't race as thats no fun for me, however it is a 24h race and anything can happen.

How you come up with sub 2k racing?

Ok this got taken a little out of context so I'll clarify what I originally meant.

I would rather have everyone race then have people not driving and so I favour the 5 man teams. But my original point is that its not ideal but for the community, this far outweighs my reservations.

@Imthecrabby @RdMracer you guys are more then welcome to race with us. We are both driving the Z4 for the event. iRatings are stronger in the other team than the Pink one like I said so feel free to join who you want. I suggest you guys make contact asap so you can adjust to the set as its specialised for us.

I just want to apologise if my original comments came across as negative. Lets have a great race and what happens happens.
