CanAm VRL has been honored with an advance invitation to participate in the "Globel Endurance Series", being hosted by the fine folks over at Globel eSports.
This series is being run on the rFactor 2 simulator platform, and will be comprised of 11 races, spanning 12 months (one race per month except August) with the first race being the 24 Hours of Daytona on January 19th & 20th.
This is a true endurance series comprised of 4, 6, 12 and 24 hour events, with top teams from around the globe competing for top honors. All races will be live streamed by the series organizers, and CanAm VRL will also offer in car stremaing of our team cars on various streaming platforms.
Our Driver lineup is extremely talented and experienced in these types of events, and we hope to raise the CanAm VRL banner to new heights. Our team consists of the following drivers:

  • 2112 - Silver license
  • crowhop - Gold license
  • Dio_Giorno - Platinum license
  • F1_Racer68 - Platinum license
  • Fergy - Gold license
  • FreakVelocity - Gold license
  • Glasnost - Gold license
  • Kaladin - Gold license
  • Lessen - Platinum license
  • Millsy - Silver license
  • TBD - License TBD

License rating is based on the organizer's criterea of past resuls in any league series. All platinum licensed drivers are past series champions, gold drivers are past series podium winners, and Silver drivers have previous league/series experience. As you can see, we have a very strong, solid lineup, with a field of drivers that have extensive endurance racing experience in iRacing special events, including some drivers that have class wins in a 24 hour event.

CanAm VRL will be fielding at least 2 cars at every event, with the following driver line ups:

  • one Oreco 07 LMP2 entry (top class), Car Number 11, drivers will be:
    • crowhop
    • Dio_Giorno
    • Glasnost
    • Lessen
  • One Porsche 991 RSR GTE, car number 61, drivers will be:
    • 2112
    • Fergy
    • FreakVelocity
    • Millsy
    • TBD

F1_Racer68 will serve as overall Team Manager and Strategist, with FreakVelocity serving as Alternate Team Manager.

Kaladin and Docslap had planned to run with us as well, but schedule conflicts and uncertainty meant that both felt it best to remove themselves before the season started. Kaladin will continue to support our efforts as the team's official Test and Development driver, and reserve driver.

For the shorter races on the schedule, we may be permitted to field a 3rd car in the LMP3 class. In that case, drivers will be shuffled around appropriately to ensure our best chances for success in each class.

Races will include:

  • 24 Hours of Daytona - Jan 19th
  • 6 Hours of Sao Paulo - Feb 16th
  • 1000 miles (268 laps) of Sebring - Mar 30th
  • 6 Hours of Spa - Apr 27th
  • 6 Hours fo The Glen - May 25th
  • 24 Hours of Le Mans - Jun 22nd
  • 4 Hours of Silverstone - Jul 20th
  • 10 Hours of Road Atlanta - Sep 21st
  • 6 Hours of Fuji - Oct 26th
  • 4 Hours of Shanghai - Nov 23rd
  • 8 Hours of Bahrain - Dec 14th
