We have entered the season 11 of the Virtual Endurance Championship successfully with 4 cars! The red question marks means people are not through

LMP2 - RevolutionSimRacing Red (@Blue Monkey, @MelBonkers, @Elodyr)
LMP2 - RevolutionSimRacing Gold (@t0daY, TBA, TBA)
GTE - RevolutionSimRacing Blue (@Jamesl91, @steveg200, @Stokemon)
GTE - RevolutionSimRacing Yellow (@Battenberg, TBA, TBA)

We have also currently @Dutchtastic, @Alex Salmon, @Puffpirat, @Nighttiger and @Gosku in the SRC-Academy which means they will be able to join the teams later.

This will be fun! :)
Cannot wait for the VEC to start, the more endurance racing the better!

Good luck to those in the SRCA season 21

So after my first testing I can definitely say, for the Oreca 07 LM-P2, we could really use a setup guru incl. telemetry readout.

Default setup I am quickly 4 sec off pace, atm with adjustments its like 2 sec.
Saw drivers on full fuel doing 43 high and 44 low, probably on softs, not sure though as you can't see who is on what tire :(

The tyres are not colour coded? That was useful last season.
No they are not. There is a very slim chance, that an update or the mod will change that, but I doubt it.

If I understand it correctly, tyres will no longer be able to be changed whilst the car is refuelling.
Tom, that only counts for the LMP2 and LMP3's. With the GTE's the tire change and refuelling is simultaneous. Check this forum post https://forum.simracing.club/index.php?threads/introduction-to-vec-season-11.6136/page-22#post-67977. This means that in LMP2 and LMP3 there still is some tactics in double stinting tires. I hope they will revert the change for the GTE's as well as now it's a sprint race with changing tires every pitstop doesn't give you disadvantage during the race.

But...

From https://forum.simracing.club/index.php?downloads/vec-workshop.331/

First batch liveries
Changelog:

Very interesting indeed!

Thanks @Battenberg, I was more looking for a seat in VLMS. VEC is serious business, and I am not sure whether I can dedicate the time needed. As you know, I am not a front runner pace-wise, so i would rather start with the lower tier. ;)

Interesting! Then count me in as reserve/backup and i will run the one or other stint when RL allows me to, need to upgrade the season pass though.

EDIT: Dang it :banghead: Just noticed that I cannot upgrade from VLMS to VEC. I can only add the VEC which is another 20€. So buying my VLMS pass was quite overhasty...

Arg, is that something you can sweet talk their admins into sorting out?
Tried it, but Jimmi Allison gave me a no-go...
So I'll shell out another 20€ and will be available for both if RL lets me ;)

Yeah really. He literally said it would be too much work... I could just send another 10€ via PayPal and he could change my license, but obviously he doesn't want to...
