@Pretender Yes you would be driving the Ford. It's unlikely that we would need someone for the Porsche team thought, I don't want you to waste money ^^'

If you need any help to understand how the licence works or other things in iracing, don't hesitate to ask.

@Def , I think @Gosutoo will run the AMG GT3, but maybe his team is full already.

sorry to hear! Didn't like Daytona or the car?
Neither of those (haven't even tried the car). Multiple other reasons, but mainly the fact that I have no idea what I'm doing. For example I got disqualified for not pitting when the game thought my car is too broken. Don't want something like that happening in a 24h race, it wouldn't be fair to others.

That happened to me once as well in the Mazda’s. I learnt my lesson :)

Yeah, but the problem is that god knows how many such things there are that I don't know about.

I'm in the same boat really as having got a clue how it's going to work really, the guys here seem very helpful though so hopefully get through it with little hiccups ;)

@poisike78 I understand your point. However, I think most of the time you'd have someone else in the discord channel to answer your questions/give advice ^^
But if you don't feel it, don't need to force you ;)

I think you have to pit by the end of the 3 lap after the flag is shown

If you were make a mistake and accidentally got disqualified or crashed the car badly you shouldn't worry it happens in endurance race it's all part of the learning Curve. like @Nagrom said there more than likely be someone in the discord chat happy to help

I am happy for Curly to take the 4th Ford GTE seat as with @poisike78 I am not sure how well I would do at this race with me having very little iracing experience. Would definitely be interested in racing the Bathurst 12hr in GT3 if there is any seats going in that, maybe if there is enough interested we could run 3 cars there. Just wondering what GT3 cars do people recommend purchasing for that event and others, preferably one that handles well (y)

I've put my availability in the spreadsheet. Happy to do night driving which it seems like the Ford team needs.

AMG GT3 is stable, so that’s what I’m going for haha. If you want to race Daytona, we are looking for a driver or two.

I understand anything can happen in such a long race, but I don't want to feel responsible for ruining teams race with something stupid. I would love to try this, but it's not fair to others if I'm using it to learn the hard way.

Thanks to photoshop master @Argon we’ll have a livery based on the Slotherines one, if that’s ok for you :)
Sound great to me. Am I right that just you as a team owner will have to assign the livery in trading paints to the team and afterwards trading paints will download the livery for all team members?
