    I'll be interested in a Gte seat if I could use someone else's account :)

    I'll be happy to pay towards a month's renewal, I just can't justify paying for a month, plus the track, plus a car for just 1 race on my own account. I have a good record of maxing out the safety rating of accounts I borrow ;)

    @grobi0815 I think you can put me off the list for this one. It´s more than unlikely that I´m able to do this race with you guys as it doesn´t look like we´d find enough people here to drive the Audi for this race. First I´m still not 100% sure if I can attend the event but I got an offer from VRT who plan to drive the R18. So in case I can make it I´ll probably do the race with them.

    I definitely want to do another one with RSR and redeem myself after Spa so we can finally get a decent result together but I´m afraid this is not the right one to do so. Though I hope to see you in the same split and therefore on track so we could still have a good race together. :)

    Hi @GoDATP, yes i'm 99% sure, because it's an official race of the ELMS series and that means B-license. Just do some races and you can make it in time.
    There is a slight chance that the officials will change it, but I highly doubt it.

    100% GTE, though I'm not sure I'd be able to practice Le Mans the amount I would want whilst trying to get to rank B. So I'm a "maybe"
