    I know my fingers wouldn't survive this. I agree with Dan though, it sounds fantastique!

    Seriously, contoller races mean 1 hour is pushing it before cramps etc set in. Shame, as I love these cars.

    Fantastic.
    However I can't commit because it's on Sundays.
    Good luck tho.
  6. Actually sorry I realised I can't do this either, great idea but sorry.

    I`d be interested Andrew but due to 4 of "the regulars" in RD leagues counting themselves out i think numbers may be thin on the ground, so i wont say a deff yes untill we see how much interest there is.
    Sounds great though.... 3 hrs at LeMans!....thats proper endurance.

    Oki,then I'm all up for this :)
    If possible I would like to get my hands on a GT2 car for this.Never driven them for such a long stint and would love to try that out.

    I'm interested, but it all depends on start times. My xbox, tv, wheel, etc are all in my living room so it would make it impossible to play before the kids (I've got a 1 year old and a 2 year old running around) go to bed. Once a month I could probably get them off to bed early, but that would still only be 7:30 at the earliest. This is why the 8:30 starts on weeknights work so well for me (and why i'm usually so frazzled when I first show up online!) because it gives me a chance to get the little ones down and set up my wheel stand and such before the 8:15 lobby opens.

    start times would be arround 8pm due to the nature and length of the races

    I felt the same way, not a challenge to drive these cars with all assists on.. for the amount of time that these races will be on for, and in all likelyhood, long stretches of driving alone around the track, would be pretty boring without a challenge from the car itself.
