I'm trying to gage some interest in running an American based GT World Endurance Challenge.
To include the following races:

1. Watkins Glen GP (US)1.5 hrs 52 laps
2. Circuit de Barcelona Catalunya GP (Spain)1.5 hrs or 52 laps
3. Silverstone GP (UK)1.5 hrs or 45 laps
4. Azure Circuit (Monoco) 45 laps
5. Circuit de 24 Heures du Mans (France)3 hrs or 43 laps.
6. Circuit de Spa Francorchamps(Belgium)1.5 hrs or 40 laps:confused:
7. Imola (Italy)1.5 hrs or 51 laps
8. Nurburgring-Nordschleife (Germany)1.5 hrs or 14 laps
9. Dubai (United Arab Emirates)1.5 hrs or 45 laps
10. Brno (Czech)1.5 hrs 45 laps
11. Zhuhai International Circuit (China)1.5 hrs 58 laps
12. Mt. Panorama (Australia) 1.5 hrs 40 laps
13. Sakkitto GP (Japan)1.5 hrs or 50 laps
14. Road America (US) 1.5 hrs 40 laps

Looking for interested Mature* Drivers who are available Sunday Mornings at around 9am EST. I feel this time slot is also good for European drivers interested as well. These races will be run Fortnightly (bi-weekly) and will skip Holiday Weekends. Due to the length of the races, Real Assists will be turned on. So if interested please comment. We would like to start within a few weeks to allow everyone to pick their cars and Liveries. Of course this is all hinged on Patch 3.0 dropping as Pitting is still an issue. Hence the delay.

*Mature: having or showing the mental and emotional qualities of an adult. Using proper Racing Etiquette as put forth by a combination of SCCA and FIA racing regulations. I would like this to be fun for everyone! :D

Actually the start times are not set in concrete yet.

Did this ever get going? Sounds interesting and sessions sound lengthy enough for strategy, attrition, and pits; not to mention getting the racing trance. However that's a tough U.S. West Coast Sunday alarm!

No hasn't gotten started yet. I was going to put it together maybe in October or so. I may cut the schedule down and go with more of a WEC schedule, but keep the race times. Nobody can run 6 hours LoL. Look at the 2015 WEC schedule. Swap out a few tracks that Project Cars doesn't have with what they have it sounds like a pretty cool ride.
1. Silverstone
2. Spa
3. 24 heures du Mans
4. Nurburgring Nordschlief
5. Road America or Watkins Glen
6. Sakitto
7. China
8. Dubai

Also thinking a Week Night (Wed or Thurs 9PM EST)might be a better fit. Only problem is it would alienate Euro drivers.

I'd be interested if it were Wednesday. That's my Sunday, so it would work out great as my wife would be in bed by then too.

I'm in for Wednesday nights! Wednesday is my Sunday also. I am not a race winner but I'm not a back marker. I usually run GT3 races online and I am usually 3-4 seconds off the fastest driver. I run clean, move to let drivers pass if they are faster when I can do so without wrecking my line. I run consistant laps, lap after lap.

I use no assists and the cockpit cam with no hud.

I would love a Wednesday night league!!!

I think we are looking at a September 30th Start date. Races will be every 2 weeks. I'm going to hammer out a schedule. Looking for more drivers if you have friends that are interested bring them in.

I'm creating a page on facebook. I'll post a link when I'm done. I'm not good creating a website. You can create an alias or use your name if you like and a gamertag so I can send invites.

Ok, I'm going to try something new. As I'm not good at making a website yet, I have a FaceBook page dedicated to the series. Just sign up with your GamerTag. If you don't have Facebook, create an Alias if you like or you are hiding out from the Government or in the Witness Protection Agency. Once I get the website up we can move it to there. Till then....

Since it's an American Series, I figured we'd run two American Races, and start there and finish there. Plus there is plenty of time between races to test and run in other leagues.

25-09-2015, 20:37
yeah good looking but unless I can run hood view I'm out I run a league now on two days with those setups you have and run 40 to 50 lap races...I just run with hood view is all....let me know if you are set in stone on the cockpit view. thanks....

Dynomight Motorsports
26-09-2015, 02:19
nah, nothing is set in stone.. this is a fun-run league for me and some friends that enjoy running the GT3 cars. We just got done with a British GT Championship and I fell in love with the GT3 cars. I want to race at some other tracks and do some short endurance races. Wheels are required either, but in a long race it's probably a good thing to have. If you prefer the hood view that is fine with me. Just not a big fan of Chase View as it tends to promote blocking :(

cool deal my gt: is bigdaddvx2005 yeah I use a wheel man I have a tx with csr elite pedals....

Dynomight Motorsports
27-09-2015, 22:44
Hey, that's pretty cool, how do those pedals work with the TX? I'm assuming you use a Basher board to connect them.

bigdaddyx2005
27-09-2015, 23:59
they work great with it I love it..and yes I have the cpx basherboard with them...

Wow, man I just looked at your schedule. This league sounds amazing! I would love to join in on this but I had a few questions. One is, well not a question, but that I am somewhat slow, as I am just getting adjusted to Pcars physics engine and you guys would more then likely lap me more times over lol. The other is that I am getting married end of october and there is a good chance I would probably miss Spa on the 21s and Le mans on the 4th due to the wedding and a honeymoon after. All others im sure I would be available for as I never have anything to do on Wednesdays. I'm always online racing anyways. Also I just found this and will have had no prep time for tonight as i am at work. I do run as clean as I can and I do not hold faster drivers back. If it's a possibility for me to join in let me know. And I am not the kind of person who backs out if im in dead last. It is my main goal on finishing the race. I may need some pointers on pit stops since i normally dont get the opportunity to race long races but I would really love to. Also not sure if you care but I do race with a wheel and pedals. Not a gamepad. Most of the racing I have been doing I have been using The Aston GT3. Not sure if that would be available but I can use whatever I need to.

You are more than welcome to Join Dan, and you can run in the GT-Am class, which is in itself is a championship of lesser experienced drivers. You would be eligible for that until you score a podium, then your points would revert back to GT-Pro class. Just click on my sig and register at Race Department You can sign up and race tonight if you like. Default setup isn't too bad, there is a 15 min practice and 15 min qualy with a 10 min warm-up to finalize any pit-strategies or setup changes.

dantheracer
07-10-2015, 16:29
Ok I am seriously considering it. It sounds like a lot of fun. But just to clarify, am a racing with a different group of people, or the same people just a different class specification. Sorry for the silly questions. Just wanting to get the knowledge. Either way is fine with me!

Also which subforum under Xbox One | Yiro Tires World Endurance Challenge do I go to actually register my name to race?

Dynomight Motorsports
07-10-2015, 22:40
No you would be racing against everyone there in GT3 cars but only the GT-Am would be in your Points Class. Just sign up under the Silverstone Race with Name/ gamertag / Car and #

For a WEC schedule I agree with yours but have Nurburgring GP as Round 4, Road America as Round 5, Watkins Glen as Round 6 and Sakitto as Round 7.
