There has been a slight change in plans, and we've got a surprise for you all! For the next round of the GT3 Club Following the last round of the GT3 Club, we stay in America, but move south to sunny Florida for a meeting at the Daytona International Speedway for the WEC! Once again top speed and low drag will be of utmost importance, with a long straight and fast, banked corner composing the track. The race will now comprise both an LMP and GT class, and enable us to replicate in part a very small portion (specifically 1/16) of the infamous '24 Hours of Daytona'!

Driver/Team notes:
  • Driver swapping is allowed
  • Each car can have 1-2 drivers (Driver Swap Tutorial)
  • All cars must have their headlights on at all times (additional flashing is encouraged when overtaking / lapping)
  • Blue flag: signals a faster car is behind you. Caution is required, but moving over is not.
  • The faster car is expected to look for a sensible passing opportunity. They are responsible for initiating a safe pass, but the slower car is equally as responsible for allowing an overtake to occur safely. Stay on the racing line, leaving plenty of room for the overtaking car, and do not make sudden / unexpected movements.
  • When lapping: straights are preferred over corners; corner exits are preferred over corner entries.
  • Slower cars are expected to keep to their racing line and cooperate with safe passes. Moving out of the way is not advised, as it leads to unpredictable situations.
  • Faster cars may flash their headlights to indicate that they are about to make a pass.
  • Patience is key!
Race information:
  • Remember to test pit-stops and driver swaps (Driver Swap Tutorial)
  • Ensure that all drivers in the team have driven some laps in traffic, and different track conditions
  • Whilst not racing or preparing for a driver swap, drivers are not permitted to be on the server; timing software will be provided so that team members are able to monitor the race
  • Presence on TS is not mandatory, but is recommended in case communication with drivers or teams is required
Starting procedure:
  • Standing start
  • At the beginning of the race, once you select "Race" your car will immediately spawn directly on the grid in your qualifying position
  • Your tyres and brakes will be cold - BE CAREFUL
  • Do not take risks, or attempt to make over-ambitious overtakes - it's a 2 hour race, don't ruin it for yourself or others
  • Ensure that you practise standing starts before the race - please only do this in the pit lane, away from other cars (be aware what's around you)
How to sign up:
  • Name all drivers for your car
  • You can always add or remove drivers to your car later on
  • Your final line-up should be clear 24 hours ahead of the event

The event has now been changed to be multiclass, and includes two LMP cars in addition to the BES GT cars.

A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

The bug is that the 911 unlike the other apex cars will find an invisible wall. It did it at Austria and at the Mountain Peak road course.
