For residents of Australia and New Zealand.

To relive the actual 24 hour race AUS/NZ Combined Racing League are running a simulated 24 hour race on Xbox and PC Project CARS 2 over a 24 hour period.

You can team up to share the driving or do it on your own, the choice is yours. There will be 4 sessions so you can have a driver change for each session if you choose to do so, but must use the same car and livery and drivers nominated in your sign up. Changes to your team can be made up until midday Saturday 17th February AEDST.
This will also be the 1st round of the IMSA series. Team drivers will score the same points towards the championship. Drivers must stay in the same make and car class (can change livery) for the remainder of the IMSA series otherwise they will forfeit points from this race towards the championship.

2:00pm final race session - 1 hour
3:00pm finish.

NOTE: The 1st session will be a rolling start with formation lap. Sessions 2 to 4 will be standing starts into a formation lap so we can get everyone into grid order from results of the previous race session for a manual rolling start. Lead drivers are to control the formation lap at a comfortable pace making sure that all behind have organised into correct grid position. Coming into the starting area a speed of 100kph is to be maintained until the lead driver increases his pace to start the race session before the start line. All drivers must hold position and formation until the lead driver starts the race.

Drivers laps completed after each session will be added up to get overall winner. Time difference after the 1st three sessions will not be calcuated only the completed laps will be calculated. Your finishing position will be your starting position for the following session. If you disconnect or don't like to say this but RAGE QUIT, the lap it occured will be the number of laps completed for that session.

Nice Idea!But as people are probably going to have driver swaps I'm guessing that if. x and y team up for Daytona in the Ford GT GTE #68 y won't lose points of for the shorter races he goes to the sister car,the #69.

Correct. As it’s a longer race, we’ve broken it up in to sections, and different drivers can team up and do different sessions to complete the event. Both drivers will get equal points for this event towards the IMSA series, where they will drive solo for the rest of the races.
