CanAm VRL has been invited to participate in the Globel eSports Championship, rFactor 2 Endurance Series.
The first race of the series will be the 24 Hours of Daytona, January 19th, 2019. Tere will be 10 additional races, approxiamtely 1 per month (no race in August). Race will range in duration from 4 hours to 24 hours.
It has been decided that CanAm VRL will accept this invitation, and we will field a team. We do not need to field the same driver lineup every race, but we MUST field the car for every race, otherwise we will be dropped form the series, and may not be invited back.
We will be required to drive the same class/car for each race. The series will use the latest official Studio 397 cars, from the Endurance Pack. This pack includes:
Our acceptance and registration is due BEFORE Sept 30th, 2018 in order to ensure our gridspot. We do NOT need to identify the specifc car yet, but we do need to identify which class we wish to run in.
For all interested drivers, please register using the Series Registration form. I also need everyone to vote for their prefered class in this thread (Cast your vote in the poll).
This is an amazing opportunity for CanAm VRL. Lets show the world that we really are North America's Premier Sim Racing League!!
I have officially accepted our invitation to compete.
I will share more details and next steps with everyone as things finalize on the organizer's end. Many things are still "WIP" on their end as they are also wrapping up this current season.
There is a chance we may be able to field a second car, but given the current interest level, that would mean that each of you that has registered would need to commit 100% to the schedule. You would need ot ensure that any plans oyu make work around the above schedule.
Please do everything you can to ensure you can be available for each and every race.
In regards to the second car, IF (and I stress the IF) we are able to field a second car, we may need to have each car in different classes (still TBD), so hopefully we could end up with a GTE and LMP2 entry. Again, we will not know this until next month some time, once the registration period has closed and the organizers have a full car count.
NOTE: Every driver must apply for a Driver's License on the organizer's site. See this forum thread for full details (must sign up to their site as well) GEC Info
If we do recevie 2 entries, please note the license restriction on LMP2. Our LMP2 drivers MUST hold a Gold or Platinum raitng under their definition:
I think all of us are Gold, but we may have one or two that are only Silver. Please DM me via Discord if you are uncertain.
