Why not a similar league, like ILMS in iRacing with half of the field Prototypes (P1 or P2) and other half GTEs. But not a 3hours event because most of the people will have no interest to race 3 hours in a row. And do not make a team event. Single player with 90/100 minutes race. Just an ideia

If the endurance race was before the GTE league and used the same track, might be a good practice for the Monday GTE league. Honestly, the previous Endurance league died, because it was a 3h race and for a team event, you need at least 100 drivers. And for a one man only race, it is too much!
If it was a non team event, with 90/100 minutes races, 50 drives would stick to it, in my opinion.
But still, when I made the sugestion, I did forget there is a F3.5 league in AOR. Just my 50 cents

If I remember correctly that was how it was done - and still not a lot of participants.

But it was 3 hours race. With a field of 10/15 cars, it is almost painfull, if you racing alone after the first pit stop. And the prototype class was even less. I remember to race with only 3/4 protos in the race. Because it was a team event. I did participate in that Endurance league who ended early.
It is all about the participation. No one wants to race a 3h race alone, and that was happening because some teams had 3 pilots. If all the drivers had a individual car, surely it would be different.

Hey can i get you all to answer this form. There have been some talk from some driver that they want to see multiclass racing again. Now i don't know how many or even if we can find the time and place for it. But we want to see if there is enough interest, for us to be lookin into it. Also if you don't want to pls answer this form anyway it helps us to see the data. This is not to say that there will be one. Just are there any interest: https://forms.gle/WYKB9XbwjLc7F5AB6

I don't like 3hrs races because you can't split in half the driving time for a 2 drivers team.
I'd rather have a 4hr team race or a 1hr solo race.

1h is just a sprint race ;) 2h would be a comfortable solo driver duration that you can start calling endurance-ish :)

PS @Paulo Martins i did. the 3h races solo, was a good challenge and a good preparation for 12-24h races :)

How about 2.4hr races , some with time acceleration to simulate full day/night 24hr race
