Free Drivers
DAYTONA BOYS! (I would like to drive GTE, maaaaybe also DP)
First endurance race of the year, my 5th consecutive 24 Hour race in Daytona. Hell yeah I am in! Car wise I am open to anything :)
Yeah I'd like to drive, open to anything
t0daY Audi? ;)
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).
I’m happy to jump in one of the teams providing I can use somebody’s account!
Oh hell yes. Count me in for any car besides the Audi (we do not get along)
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.
Interested :) I have all cars bar Ford and Porsche.
I'm in!!!
I have Ferrari, Porsche GTE and Merc GT3
Interested, but not (yet) 100% sure.
Any GTE or GT3.
@Anto @Darksi we doing this again? I'm happy too! also prefer GTE
resident American reporting in for duty, don't really mind what class i'm in but would prefer either DP or GTEs.
im in foir this lol i bit the bullet and brought a new subscription only thing is need to lock in a car choice as i really cant afford to buy all cars luckily i have the track all ready lol
@fab. ICEMAN Just to confirm i will be available for daytona :)
Ok as i havent actually confirmed (thought I had) I am in
Add me to a rookie car please ;)
I will subscript to iRacing the next days and would love to do this race with some of you guys. Is there still an empty space for a rookie somewhere? Just iracing rookie, no simracing rooke ;-)

Wanna do the other big endurance races aswell, so to not buy a dozen cars I would like to drive a GTE or GT3 car :)
I'm up for it :D
Sorry - I somehow missed this post. Yes I'm up for this. :) My preference is always the faster car, but happy to follow the instructions of RSR Command.

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.

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

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.

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

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:
