    This weekend the European Le Mans Series runs at the Red Bull Ring, so here is our own virtual endurance version! Be sure to read all the info in this thread before signing up.

    Track: Spielberg GP

    Practice: 18:00 GMT
    Quali: 18:15 GMT (15 minutes)
    Warm-up: 18:30 (5 minutes)
    Race: 18:35 GMT approx - 90 minutes - 1 Pit Stop Mandatory to change all 4 tyres.
    90 minutes endurance means you won't win the race on lap 1, so please drive safely and respect others on track.

    Tyre Wear & Fuel Consumption: Normal
    Time Scale: x1
    Start: Standing/Rolling - SEE SPECIAL NOTES

    Special Notes MUST READ
    The race start will be set to standing, however the first lap is not a racing lap - we will do a manual rolling start! When the lights go out, wait for the car ahead of you to pull away, and then gently follow them. The leaders are expected to maintain a reasonable pace not exceeding 100kph! Stay behind the car ahead, no weaving around, no brake testing. When coming back onto the start/finish straight, close the field back up, stick to your side of the grid, driving over the grid boxes. The green flag is deemed to have dropped the moment the leading cars cross the start finish line at the end of the formation lap - only then can you all speed up and race, overtake, etc. When signing up please indicate you have read these special notes about the start, or you won't be signed up.

    You'll need to pit for a change of all 4 tyres during the race. When pitting, keep to the right when coming out of the final turn to avoid incidents. This track has some connecting corners where it can be difficult to overtake; if you come up behind a back marker, please be patient and give them some time to let you pass safely. Back markers, please be attentive to blue flags and cater to them as soon as it is safe to do so.

    Just a note for people using an overlay; it may not work with these cars. rfdynhud doesn't appear when using the MR18s. Use your LCD and the default options instead.

    I`ve read, but because I haven˙t driven this car much so far, I would like to know if we have to refuel too or there is enough fuel to complete the race (I am all day at work again so I can not try it by myself right now :unsure:)?

    Sign me up, please.

    I can't remember off hand but I believe you'll need to refuel. I'll do some laps sometime in the next few days and let you know my fuel consumption.

    Great, I used your fuel recommendation also last night, because GID, DynHUD or something else to see fuel consumption per lap simply doesn˙t work for me with this game.

    Thanks to you Andrew :thumbsup:
    Just a small upgrade. Go lower with both front Bumps and Rebounds for click or two and also lower rear spring rate under 200. Car is now a bit understeary at the exits from corners, but overall feeling is much better :)

    @Matej Lakota this is a rough estimate; I did 10 laps running about 2.10 litres per lap; I estimate 59/60 laps in the race so 2.10 Litres x 60 laps = 126 litres minimum for the race. Of course, other people don't have the same racing style as me, so this should just be a guide, and the first lap will be slower so will use less fuel.
