If I can get some private things solved I'll sign up for this. Should know better tomorrow.

Just a question about race length:
Are such long races requested by a majority? Don't get me wrong. I can handle the distance and it's a big challenge to go for. But I'm afraid it's hindering more drivers from signing up instead of encouraging them...

That's a fair point. Personally, I like long races. And I know a few others do too. Are we a majority? I couldn't tell, but probabaly not. On the other hand, the SCE club is always about two twenty minutes races. So, a little bit of change once in a while is good too! In the end, these "endurance" events are not planned often (comapred to the regular events), and its exceptionnal character usually gives quite a lot of sign ups, like the Queensland's race we had a few months ago.

Also, I know the rFactor 2 club is giving the SCE club a hard time since they run the GT3s, quite popular cars, on the very same evening.

Tired of sprint races and hotlapping? Here's an answer to that. True, if you make a bad move early in the race there's a good chance the experience won't be fun. Learning to go fast is just one attribute a good racer must have. Long races bring out some of that other "stuff" and you probably need it. There are still plenty of slots available for this event which features an easy to learn and drive track and a great driving car, please join us!

Put me down as a maybe.
Not sure I'll get time to practice much.
So I'll turn up for the practice session to see what kind of pace I got, and we'll take it from there.

Don't worry. The race is long enough to learn everything. :whistling:

I have never driven this track so far and will only have 30 mins practice beforet the event starts but I'm confident it will become a very nice one.

BTW, is there any way to adjust pit presets further than only fuel strategie (like in Race07)? I'd like to have repairs disabled as long as I manually activate it. I think otherwise they're automatically enabled once you have a chrash (or a small contact), right?

I think repairs are mandatory for safety reasons but you can decide if you want tires changed or not. Changes can be made while on the grid(prior to the start), while driving or when on pit road before entering your box. I don't know if they can be changed in a warmup session and stay changed. Of course, you do have to have buttons set to make the changes.

I have no ides how much time is spent on fueling or tire changes, I think I've only made two or three pitstops so far for other than a repair which seems to go quickly. I plan on practicing a few early today.
