    I was just gauging interest in a VERY long endurance race in EVO (3+ hours). Most likely GT-Pros.

    Do you realize how many laps down I would be at the end of that!
    It would probably be fun, but I think it would be hard to find enough driver due to time zones.

    Would prefer something a bit slower than the GT pro's, I wouldn't expect to last long with them....

    How about the R8's or something of a similar speed?

    I think driving production cars for such a long period is actually more difficult than the GT's. At least you can work on setups with the GT's which can make driving easier.

    We should do a multi class GT series race. I think that would be fun. I don't really like any of the cars in the PRO series. No porsche... I wish they had the new M3 in the GT sport class or whatver one it is.

    We need LMP cars.

    Before you all get too excited: the game only supports max 120 minute races :)

    rFactor it is then. Which means less numbers.

    Well, is that true? What if I specify 100 laps at Spa?

    Whatever you do, don't do Nordschliefe. That track is too demanding to race on for 2 hours, unless we get a long practice and warmup.

    Bram is right, you can't do races over two hours long. Not sure about laps, though. We'll have to wait and see... :)

    If it helps any planning, we recently ran an Inter Club Challenge at Spa 2004 in GTP cars, and the top drivers completed 50 laps in 2 hours, including 2 parade laps before a rolling start.

    BTW, I'd highly recommend the manual parade lap start for such a long enduro, in case a few drivers end their race at Eau Rouge in the opening lap.

    It looks as we can run up to 120laps at any track (at least that's the max I can setup in a dedicated server and what I see when I join the game). I might just add some AI and let it run over night. If that works then a ~2min track x 120 = ~240mins = 4hours :)
