    Ahead of the Thrustmaster Six Hours of Silverstone we take a look at the new names taking part in the latest edition of RDLMS by Vesaro, and check out the beautiful new liveries on show.

    Round One of the 2017 RDLMS by Vesaro was a fantastic spectacle of endurance racing at Interlargos, with some superb driving on display in both Prototype and GT classes as the field of drivers tackled 12 gruelling hours of competition on one of the finest Grand Prix circuits in the world.

    Despite the brilliant race that unfolded out on track, we did have a rather disappointing element to the event organisation. Due to various circumstances a small handful of teams failed to make the grid in time for the race on April 1st... Fortunately due to the unprecedented popularity of the series we are delighted to say that capacity is now back up to the full 40 car limit as we welcome our four new teams and 15 new drivers signed up to compete in the 2017 RDLMS by Vesaro series this year.

    So ahead of the second round of the series at Silverstone, let us introduce you to the new teams, cars and drivers looking to step up and compete in the glorious return of the RaceDepartment Le Mans Series by Vesaro Season 7 championship using rFactor 2 and the superb Enduracers Endurance Series modification.

    Team: Frenchie Fox Racing

    Additional to the inclusion of our new competitors, several teams have taken the opportunity to redesign their team liveries ahead of the Thrustmaster Six Hours of Silverstone. With some sharp designs on show backed up by the improved graphics and shaders found in rFactor 2 post the big DX11 update released on May 1st, the cars rolling out on to the grid this May 13th are set to look better than ever before.

    To keep yourself up to speed on who is driving what and how the teams are presented ahead of round two, check out these awesome spotter guides produced by our own very talented @alexSchmurtz. The cars look great, the track looks perfect and rFactor 2 looks better than it ever has... RDLMS by Vesaro is shaping up to be one of the best seasons of endurance racing we have every held. I can't wait to see it all unfold at Silverstone for round 2..!

    New colours for the #118 RMI Motorsport Ferrari for this race, am I correct in thinking we are the only ones that have changed livery since Interlagos?
