So you'd like to able to swap drivers physixcally on the same rig? Facial recognition would make that easy (and it should be mandatory in e-sports to be sure the right person is racing).
It would avoid an Abt moment. :)

Those are the best and worst of simracing experience: prepare a setup and a strategy with a mate, react to the unexpected, learn to play the long game, awesome stuff; and then a game bug sometimes ruins all of that in a second.
Helmuth van Moltke : "No plan survives contact with the enemy"
Endurance Racer : "No setup survives contact with the barrier."

I don't mind a race spoiled by a big crash. It is the bug that is a real pain in the butt. In my experience it happened a lot more in team events than in solo events.

@Daniel Monteiro - I admire your cool approach. When you see simracing as a game more than a sim, the pill is harder to swallow. ;)

Yes and it is my favorite type of racing by far. If only I had more time for it. Everything from planning the strategy to balancing how hard you push is just amazing to me.

I voted no, and I wonder how would it work? I'm not going to race for 4+ hours. If there was a way to say, come into the pits and then 'swap' online drivers, i'd consider doing it.

P3 at the 2019 iRacing 24 Hours of Daytona in a Ford GT, that's been my only online endurance race. But offline I've done a few, my favourite was a 64 car 8 hours of Spa with x3 weather in Assetto Corsa. Came P2 in a McLaren 720 cause I got spun by a backmarker Porsche last lap :mad::mad:
How in the **** did you do a 24 hours race online?
