The Racedepartment World Endurance Series, or RDWES for short, is a series of (semi)endurance races we will hold during the year. After a blast on Mid Ohio, we will again make a visit to the USA, to Sebring to be exact. Sebring International Raceway is one of the oldest continuously-operating race tracks in the United States, its first race being run in 1950. As this track has a long history of Endurance racing, we feel we should honor it by this event. There will be NO driver swaps allowed in this event. Total race length is 300 miles, 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. 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 (taken out due to missing whipers and brake disc glow animation). One-Make Racing Renault Megane SKINS For this round, a custom MOD will be created. Everyone who wants to use a custom skin can make one and send it in a working download link. The DEADLINE is October 1st (!!!!), so after that you'll need to pick a standard skin for the race. Happy skinning guys! Don´t forget to put a RD logo on there. Dead line costum skin period has ended!
