    Notes:

    1. We recommend you read the manual beforehand which gives details about how to set up the game and the cars within the mod. English Manual German Manual

    2. Do not over-rev the engine, particularly when in 1st gear, as this can easily lead to a blown engine.

    3. This race feature a rolling start. As the lap here is long, we will start from an earlier point (exit of turn 4). This means that once the light goes green the leader gradually speeds up to around 120 km/h (75mph) and drives at this pace until turn 4 (picture below). All other cars follow in one line with the same speed. No brake test, no swaying. If you spin your car you drop back to last position and start from there. When exiting the turn 4 the leader can go full throttle and the rest of the pack follows. Overtaking is allowed as soon as you exit the corner. This will count as part of the 1 hour race.

    How better to celebrate your birthday with a brake failure at the end of Mulsanne straight. :p
    Likely to happen with these cars. :D

    Raced against some AI's then suddenly a AI turned me around and my car went flying at the hill before Mulsanne.

    Dont think you can get x24 unless I missed something, closest is x25. Remember, the field should be nicely spread out by the time it gets dark. Just an idea tho ;)

    Nope, it will all be run during the day. The mod already takes quite a bit of resources anyway. :)

    Well, I'm planning on a waiting race to be honest... Fighting on La Sarthe with these monsters doesn't feel quite comfortable, especially for a 1 hour race and also because half the field will have engine problems anyway right ? :p

    TBH, Qual got nothing to say. There will be the cars slip streaming each other down a 4 km long straight, if that is boring I call you Mr.Tilke!
