    Check out the teams and drivers ahead of the Thrustmaster 12 Hours of Suzuka in our brand new RDLMS by Vesaro Spotter Guide!


    With only a couple of days to go until we reach the fifth round of RDLMS by Vesaro, check out the new teams, drivers and liveries ahead of the Thrustmaster 12 Hours of Suzuka.

    Our premier endurance GT league is finally closing in on the finish line here at RaceDepartment, with just the upcoming Thrustmaster 12 Hours of Suzuka this weekend and the season closing Sebring Six Hour races left to fight over in the battle for championship honours, the real tension is starting to creep into our by now experienced and established field of star drivers and teams.

    Created as always by the highly talented @alexSchmurtz, our spotter guide is bang up to date with all the latest liveries, team and driver changes ahead of the Suzuka round of RDLMS.

    PROTOTYPE CLASS

    19 teams, five models of car and 80 drivers look set to take to the circuit at Suzuka this weekend, and while our established stars look to make a mark once again in the championship, it is with great pleasure we get to welcome some new faces to the RDLMS by Vesaro family.

    Gone for Suzuka are the KAMF Racing #21 Gibson, replaced by the as yet un-liveried #28 Elements Racing Oreca 03 Nissan. Driven by Ismael Nadire, Juuso Kilpinen and Jesper Sigmans, this new to RDLMS by Vesaro team will be looking for a solid and composed performance from the race ahead as they look to build experience and confidence ahead of the final round of the season.

    With only Elements Racing new to the Prototype class for round five, the only other change will be a new livery design for the #8 Talking Door Racing outfit.

    GT CLASS

    Our GT class for the Thrustmaster 12 Hours of Suzuka contains very few changes ahead of the big race. After a very solid debut over in the United States, the #125 LG Racing entry will now be competing full time to the end of the season, with family Le Gallez taking to the circuit once again in the trusty Aston Martin Vantage GTE.

    With 21 cars, five models and 97 drivers in the class, competition will continue to be tight throughout the class. Don't forget to look out for new liveries on the #105 Racers in Pyjamas, #106 Talking Door Racing, #118 RMI Motorsport and #125 LG Racing cars all looking resplendent in their new designs.

    That would be my handy work, because they were unable to submit a livery! :p I thought that it would be nice to add a bit more colour to the grid! :roflmao:

    HAHAHAHA! In all honesty there haven't been many issues, and most were incredibly subtle so they would have been difficult to spot unless you knew what to look for, but owing to your amazing skills and quick work the majority of these mistakes have been prevented from making it into the final, public releases. ;)

    There tends to be two favoured options on RF2 for endurance leagues. EnduRacers as Gijs mentioned above and the URD mods. The main difference between the two (apart from URD being paid mods) is the classes. Enduracer is older model P2, GTE, whereas the URD mod is LMP1, LMP2, and GTE. Both are great mods though and I race regularly with both :)

    I have seen endurance races on AC with the included cars, however if you want full day/night cycle racing (not sure how the others cope with driver swaps), RF2 is your preferred option. Admittedly though the LMP1 cars on AC have the full hybrid system setup. Depends on how complex you like your driving! :)
