Welcome one and all to the all new endurance championship on AOR! A different discipline entirely compared to the GTE League and Formula 3 League. We'll be running a 5 round season, with races spread out over the official iRacing season. We've set up to avoid clashes with the official eLMS series too. As it is endurance, this will be a multi-class league, running the GTE and LMP1 classes! That means there will be a total of 4 choices for the GTE cars and 2 choices for the LMP1 cars.
This league will be run slightly different to the usual leagues as this will be exclusively be a teams championship. Each team will consist of between 1-3 drivers. Therefore those who want to tackle this league alone can do so, but those who want to make it a true team event can do that. Therefore there is no drivers championship, solely a team championship.
There are benefits to both 1-3 team sizes. If you're running alone, obviously you get bragging rights and a real feel for endurance racing. Driving with 1 or 2 others can mean you can do an early stint if you're need to get off early.
This championship's calendar is in sync with the GTE league. They are separate championships obviously, but those who sign up to both will not be impaired by having to learn an additional track that week.
What day and time do events start? Race nights will be on Saturday Nights. There will be 3 hour races, with qualifying commencing at 18:15 (GMT). This series will not be run every week so be sure to check the calendar for what weeks we are racing.
When will the season start? The first race of the season will be 16/3/2019. There will be 5 races spread over 9 weeks.
What are the entry requirements? As welcoming as AOR is to drivers of all abilities, it should be said that this is not a league for beginners, and people who have not driven these cars will not be accepted into the league. With hopefully big grids, and the process that is multi-class racing. We need to be confident that drivers are able to keep control of their cars and run at a safe pace on track. Therefore you must meet the following requirements to race in this league:
All drivers must have competed in at least 2 official iLMS or eLMS races. Alternatively have competed in at least one special event in an LMP1 car.
Minimum 1.5k iRating, but those under 2k will be monitored.
All drivers must have competed in at least 2 official IMSA/iLMS or eLMS races in a GTE car. Alternatively have competed in at least one special event or 2 AOR GTE League races.
Minimum 1k iRating, but those under 1.5k will be monitored. Drivers will iRating less than 1k will not be accepted into the league.
Any driver under C Licence will be monitored.
Any driver being monitored will be removed from the championship if we feel they are too slow or too dangerous on track.
How many spaces are available? There will be a maximum of 60 full-time spaces. If these spaces are filled we will have a reserve list for drivers to go on until a space becomes available.
What happens if I'm on the reserve list? If you're on the reserve list, there will still be opportunities to race if a main team can't make a race. We do not accept drivers who wish to sign up as a reserve. If you're on the reserve list then when a space becomes available, you will be moved onto the main list.
How is the Championship structured? The Championship consists of 5 race nights featuring one race per night.
Race night structure?
● Practice: 45 minutes starting at 17:30 (GMT)
● Lone qualifying: 4 laps/15 minutes starting at 18:15 (GMT)

More details can be found in the rules thread.
Are setups permitted? The Championship is open to setup modification.

Full details on points scoring can be found in the rules thread.
Are there any recommended files to download? If you so wish to create your own team livery you can find all car livery templates under the "Paint" section of the iRacing website. Trading Paints is recommended to upload and show off your livery on race nights as well as making the rest of the grid look suited and booted!
There are also useful fuel calculators out there! You can get one here!

Due to the time required to get the skins and information added to our overlay and skin pack, any new sign ups after the Wednesday before each race will not be able to participate in the race the following Saturday.
For this league we need a large grid and a good level of attendance. If we do not reach this, then this league will not be going ahead.
