I want to run a 24h race in my club on the Xbox, but I don't know how to set the time. We want to drive for two hours in real-time, but at the moment I have no time to test it myself. And honestly, I don't know how to figure that out, so please excuse me for my dumbness . If anyone knows how to set this up, I would appreciate the help:D

Thanks in advance:)

set the race to a 'timed race'. Race length: 2 hours. Time Progression x10 or 15. There is no x12. Or you can set the race length to 2h24min and do x10 time progression.

As AbeWoz said, you have to use 10x and 2:24h for a full day cicle. If you limit the race to 2 hour, in real time x10 would be 20h. So if you start at 15:00h the race is over at 11:00 of next day.

12x, 18x and 24x would be a good improve. Take a look here:

You have the option of time progression in-game. You can set it to x10 or x20 for example. Now if you have 2.4 hours race with a x10 in-game time progression you get an in-game 24h cycle. Remember, 2.4 hours = 2h 24 minutes.
It also works with 1.2 hours with x20 progression. 1.2 hours = 1h 12 minutes.

For a race of 01h30 od duration, what time speed need for emulate 24h (LeMans, Daytona)? 15x ??
In the case of 1 hour of race, what speed need for emulate 6 hours? (WEC races) 5x or 10x?

1hr 30min X 15 = 22hr & 30min cycle

so

1hr 36 min X 15 = 24 hr cycle


1hr X 5 = 5 hr cycle
1hr X 10 = 10 hr cycle

so

1hr 12mins X 5 = 6 hr cycle

My dog does better math than me so I might of embarrassed myself here but that is what I came up with. I'm sure someone much smarter than me will correct if I'm wrong.

Can someone tell Irish to put a real clock calculator in the game options when selecting accelerated time and a clock in the HUD so that we can see the actual time ingame.

As far as I know the time scaling is the same as it was in PCars1. I had worked it out as follows:

24hrs = 1440mins

therefore a complete 24hrs will be done in:

x60 = 24mins
x50 = 29mins
x45 = 32mins
x40 = 36mins
x30 = 48mins
x25 = 58 mins (so 24hr compressed to approx 1 hour realtime)
x20 = 72mins
x15 = 96mins (24hrs in +/- hour and a half)
x10 = 144mins (so 2h 24 mins)
x5 = 288mins (4h28mins kinda like the standard ELMS or IMSA 4 and a half hour races)
x2 = 720mins (12hours)

Hope that helps :)
