    On the 10th-11th June 2017 (from 3pm UK time on the Saturday), iRacing will once again hold the 24hrs of Le Mans on their service, and AOR will participate with two teams!

    This year, both #AOR24Red and #AOR24Purple are competing for the first time in this race. Last year, @FisiFan91, @Erti147 and I competed with less than 3 days notice/planning. Starting 35th in class (after no qualifying) driving the HPD, we finished 15th in class, including minor problems such as only having 3 drivers, no practice, Evan running out of fuel and a bit of a crash from myself through the Porsche Curves. That was under the name of Tortoise GP.

    This time though, we're doing it properly.

    Here are the teams:

    #AOR24Red - HPD ARX-01c
    - Kerry Knowlden (@Kez)
    - Knut Martinsen (@FisiFan91)
    - Phil Reid (@McPhilen)
    - Kristian Takacs (@Synergi)

    #AOR24Purple - HPD ARX-01c
    - Stevie Chambers (@StevieSQ)
    - Christoph Holstein (@Ycoms)
    - Evan RT Imray (@Erti147)
    - Alexander Waldo (@The Genius)

    Liveries have been designed by @Rin Hato

    @Dan Hawkins has set up the dual-stream page again, so that you will be able to watch and support the teams, live as it happens through the AOR Stream page, watching Fisi's stream of #AOR24Red and Chris' of #AOR24Purple.

    Unfortunately aor team orange cant run since gunar and jannick can not make it to the race... so I found myself a team in the HPD class.

    All the best to the aor teams and maybe we will meet on track but most certainly on the twitch chat :D

    Iracing are releasing the two GTE cars on Tuesday and it looks like they are going to use them instead of gt1 and gt2. Rip Aston

    Oh.

    GTE + old HPD would be a bit weird though? I thought the HPD was supposed to be matched with the GT1+2 cars idk

    Yea but GTE races lemans now so they've been pushing to get the cars released in time for the race. It looks better for iracing to have current cars. Would be weird to have the race with the old cars and then right after release the new cars.

    If they'd got the cars out like a couple of weeks ago I'd of wanted to run the GTE instead - also puts people's GT1 practice up the shitter if they decided last minute on what to do

    Have you forgotten how late we decided to do it last year?

    Either there will be a million HPD's, or there will be a million Ferrari's. Ferrari is by far and away the biggest brand in motorsport. People will be so excited to drive it they may still drive the lower class, just because there's a Ferrari.



    I may also be one of those people who will drool over the idea of racing in a Ferrari.... even if they are cunts.

    If these cars are even half as popular as the Porsche there will be millions of GTE's. Ferrari hype
