Namely, RFactor2 Endurance. I'm thinking low cost to entry, so fully modded tracks and cars, with dedicated modlists to ensure compatibility. Custom skins and Real Life lengths. So 12h Sebring, 6H Monza, 24H Nurburgring, even.

Initially I'd like to start with something like (x)H of Paul Ricard using the GT World Series mod for cars:


As a pilot event, test the waters. I don't know if stint lengths can be mandated in rF2, but ideal team members would be 2-4 per car. With how RF2 handles drivers, however, it is possible to be in 2 cars in the same race. All it requires is a disconnect and reconnect as far as I can see, but I'm more than willing to be wrong on that.

With how many drivers are interested in the ACC endurance events, I can only imagine how many could be interested in a more accessible (and expandable) from other parts of AOR. So please. If you'd be into the idea of assembling a team and taking part in this, *just for fun*, feel free to comment and tag your mates below.

For Driver change "quick guide", see here:

edit: This is a pure interest thread at the moment. I've asked a few who are either interested, or worried about the technical side. They are the two responses I've had so far. So please, any and all comments are welcome at the moment. RF2 is a new platform to me, and that probably shows in my eagerness to use mods. I know, but I also want to do proper endurance racing in AOR that isn't necessarily GT3, and awfully hard to run.

Oi oi, great idea and I'd love to help!
I never did rFactor though, so I guess newb questions, why can't we use the cars they used in the Le Mans Virtual for example?

We can, but from my experiments in PCars, drivers seem to want some level of familiarity with the cars. GT3 is massively popular, so I'm hoping to get people from Pcars & AC/ACC sub-communities to dip their toes in rFactor too.

Well, I don't know why GT3 is so dominant in the community but I can't change that :p

I could drop the racing in sprints for this kind of event. Never done races on rFactor2 either, and of course, it depends on the day but I'll follow this closely

I've purchased rf2 and would be keen to get involved in some endurance racing. I went to the spa 24 last year, the date it was supposed to be held is fast approaching and we could run a rf2 GT3 race?

I'm guessing this never really got going??
Really want to get into proper endurance racing with team mates.
Sprint racing is not doing it for me at the moment.

Sadly, it didn't. I feel the same, sprint racing is fun but endurance is even more fun. The best option for endurance you have now is ACC, last weekend we had Suzuka 12 Hours.

Indeed. We did it in GT4 we were the Aston involved with Jardier...... Let's not speak of that.
Well hopefully something might happen who knows.

Well, if money would grow on trees I'd be doing the iRacing special events, but sadly it doesn't.

I'll keep my eye out there. Then proceed to cry into my pillow because I can't afford it

I got RF2 in the sale just after LM Virtual but yet to fire it up as im a basic ACC bitch but would certainly be up for endurance events if they ever happen
