    Road Atlanta - We will start in daylight and go into the night.

    Road Atlanta, also known as Petit Le Mans, always turns out great sim races. This track has great appeal to it in the community. And for good reason. This track brings out the best in any simracer. You don't only drive this track with your right foot, but also with your head. You have to plan your attacks. There's little chance of overtaking in sector 1, so you have to get as close as you can to your opponent coming up the long back straight to attempt an overtake before the chicane. A lot of smooth driving is required here.

    This race will not be the usual 90 minutes, but 144 minutes (2,4 hours). So, a true endurance race!
    To make it all a bit more exciting, we will start the race in daylight and go into the night.

    I won't be able to make this one, sorry. I've unregistered but it makes no difference for GTEs red lights, which is a shame IMO because there will be less than 30 cars on track and should be enough room for all GTEs to come.

    Still 4 days until the race, and already getting nervous about the LMPs passing between T2 and T6

    I'm not sure I will take part in the race. I participate in Iracing's 24h Nurburing race and I can be too tired to drive after that.

    What we do about the lefthander and driving line in exit?

    Few drivers in lmp2 also, and 144m race is too long to end up driving against few drivers.
    I might change and drive a gt car this time

    You mean the lefthander after the esses in sector 1?
    There is a gravel trap next to it, so that takes care of itself. The whole curb is basically within limits.

    Should be there in the Oreca LMP2 for this one.

    I've cleaned the sensors on the pedals, everything all looks good and I ran some laps last night.

    I'm slightly worried the 70% throttle issue will gradually return but I do enjoy driving these cars so I want to try anyway.

    Will be interesting to see if the game uploads my livery this time, fingers crossed :)

    Unless you have edited it recently (since latest update), it won't (and won't even show in game for you to select).

    Oh I tested it last night. I see the folder structure has changed again after the update. So I just re-created the folder; moved the files and resaved, all looks ok in game so far :)

    I tried using the livery for round one, I could see it myself but no-one else could and it didn't appear on the stream. Just one of those things, it happened in the previous league before the material updates. Some liveries were uploaded, some weren't.

    The skin you made for me isn't showing at all.
