The Sim Grid Endurance Cup returns for season 3!
Season 2 of The Sim Grid Endurance Cup was thrilling from start to finish with the championship going all the way down to the wire at the final race, the 8h of Silverstone. We expect season 3 to be no different, and with some significant format and rule changes, it should be even closer than ever before!
Firstly, teams must now have 3 drivers compared to the 2-4 driver team sizes allowed in season 2. Secondly, rounds 1, 3 and 5 in this championship will be 3h rounds (compared to the 4h used in season 2) with rounds 2 and 4 being 6h and 9h respectively.
There will be up to 4 splits available in the championship. Each of the splits has availability for a maximum of 45 cars. With each car featuring 3 drivers, this means that The Sim Grid Endurance Cup will have 540 drivers racing at each round!

Championship Qualification Details
The qualification process uses a fixed car and track combination to create parity and ensure that no team qualifies on the basis of a car having BoP advantages at the selected track. The qualification process for The Sim Grid Endurance Cup season 3 is the Lexus at Nurburgring.
All 3 drivers on the team must set a minimum of 20 valid laps on the qualification server. There is no maximum number of laps a driver can set. The best 25% of a drivers laps are then averaged and the time for each driver is combined to get a team average lap time which is used to sort the teams.
