ACC | Spa 2.4 Hours: Saturday 2nd May - How To Take Part

The Assetto Corsa Competizione Racing Club are holding a special event this Saturday 2nd May - a 2.4 hour semi-endurance race around the mighty Spa-Francorchaps. Find out how to sign up here.

The Assetto Corsa Racing club here at RaceDepartment has been enjoying some exceptional racing throughout the field these last few weeks, with 90 minute race events having attracted substantial grids at some of the best tracks available currently within the sim.

For something a little bit different, in order to fuel our desires yet further, this coming weekend we've decided to run a slightly longer race - throwing down the challenge to our Assetto Corsa Competizione racers with a 2.4 hour semi-endurance race at the spectacular Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium.

How Do I Take Part
Easy. Available to all Premium Members here at RaceDepartment, all you need to do is put down your name in the comments section of the race thread found HERE.

How Many Drivers Are Allowed On Server?
At the time of writing we already have 25 drivers registered for the event, with a capacity grid of 45 allowed for this race. Should we get above 45, we may consider upping the grid numbers - but be quick and get your name down to ensure you secure a place on the grid!

When Are We Racing?
The race will take place on Saturday 2nd May, at the slightly earlier time of 18:00 UTC. You can check out the full session schedule below:

Practice: 18:00 UTC (30 minutes)
Qualifying: 18:30 UTC (20 minutes)
Race: 18:55 UTC (144 minutes 2.4 hrs)

Scheduled times for the race weekend inside the game:

Practice: Friday 15:00 (x3 Multiplier)
Qualifying: Saturday 11:00 (x3 Multiplier)
Race: Sunday 11:00 (x5 Multiplier)

Please note, this race will require 2 mandatory pitstops where tyres must be changed

Race sign up thread HERE.

Do You Have A Practice Server Available?
Yes! We already have the practice server for Spa up and running - so get your name down in the race thread, get online and start putting in the work that will help you find your way towards the pointy end of the grid this coming weekend!


If the last few events are any type of measure, this one should be something of a spectacular experience! Hopefully see you out on the track!


Assetto Corsa Competizione is available now exclusively on PC.

Wasted my time reading half of the post.

The title should mention it's only for premium or club members otherwise people can say it's a click-bait.

(In order to avoid misunderstanding I read the other half of the post. Untill the link

Not sure what your point is? To race in any club event at RaceDepartment (except Wreckfest) you need to be a Premium member, and it's been this way for years. The title isn't really 'click-bait' as it leads to something you're interested in, and then tells you how to participate!

Also, it's only three short sentences to get to the part about Premium membership, hardly a chore is it?

Honestly "click bait", premium membership is a quid a month. I bought it and you won't believe what happened next. Click HERE to find out more

By now most members are aware that hosted races are only for premium members.

make three server with 20 bloke each, a 60 man grid is simply not fun. Unless you aiming at big crash.

I think 60 players will be a nice comparison to the 2019 24h of Spa starting grid ;)

Nonetheless I hope my PC will not incinerate :)

If I want a 20 cars SPA race I can use F1 2019.
The fun of endurance racing is a long and tiresome "wild bunch" environment:)

Accidents / Incidents do happen, but many of our races are clean and without issue. It's a long race so even if I was to be involved in an incident and had a damaged car, I would enjoy the prospect of having to pit and making some gains.

If you tweak the cars in view I'm sure it will be fine, offline with that many cars uses more CPU as the cars are computer controlled.
