The Racedepartment World Endurance Series, or RDWES for short, is a series of (semi)endurance races we will hold during the year. For this first episode, we will visit the Mid Ohio track in the USA. Mid Ohio Sports Car Course is a road course auto racing facility, located in Troy Township, Ohio US, just outside the village of Lexington. Since it’s opening in 1962, it has been optimized a few times, which results in the current layout available for rfactor2. The track is perfectly suited to host multiple classes running at once, with its wide lanes and overtake opportunities all around. There will be NO driver swaps allowed in this event. Total race length is 100 laps, which will equal about 2.5 hours of racing. AVAILABLE CARS The cars available will all be from the GT classes. In addition to the GT Endurance Series by ISI, we have decided to include the Renault Megane Trophy, and the Maserati GT 2012. RaceDepartment will try to stay up to date with the latest patches and releases of these mod’s. This list will be updated according to the latest decisions of the staff concerning implemented patches and releases. Available choices will be: GT1 Nissan GT-R GT4 Nissan 370Z Maserati GT One-Make Racing Renault Megane SKINS For this round, a custom MOD will be created. This mod will contain a few skins for each car, in Racedepartment style. Everyone is free to pick a skin from the available options.
