TORA Endurance Championship (Discussion)

Post by Richy59 on Wed 23 Nov 2011 - 11:31

Last year whilst competing in the Le Mans 24 Hours a number of us started talking about doing more of the full length 12/24 Hour races and possibly making a championship out of it. We have been discussing it amounst the staff for awhile now but we realized that we may have been making the championship to personal, and it may not be something that the community at large would actually want to compete in.

We had a pretty low turn out last year at the TORA 24, to a point where other communities and their members out numbered our regular mambers. Whilst this was great and it was good to speak to these other communties it defintely felt like these full length endurance races were not a very popular idea.

Originally we had quite a large calendar for this, but we have cut that down. We originally were going to base our races off the real thing. We have now cut that down to four rounds:

Sebring 12 Hours - ISCC
Le Mans 24 Hours - ISCC
Silverstone 24 Hours - TORA GT/TCC
Nurburgring 24 Hours - GT2/GT/AWD/TCC

What we are looking for is the communities thoughts on this. Would you guys race in this series? Is three 24 Hour races in a year too much?

Im happy with 24 hour races I think we should get people to can race in most of these, then make teams out the group who can make it. This would be better than a team of say 5 againest a team of 3 etc. Maybe also make the stints shorter to maybe 2 hours/2h 30min stints?

i'd be happy to partake in a few of the races if i've got the time to do it! Love the sound of the Silverstone enduro with GT's and TCC, it's just important to get the numbers in for these enduro races so if we were able to publicise it properly to bring in as many numbers as possible i'd say it'd be great!

I think its a great idea, however I'm not able to take part in this, unless two or three nearby actually make a visit for the race and take turns on the same console.

i'm game. Maybe considering a joint (cross forums) 24 hour league could be an option.

F4H Chrisupra over at VM has just run a 3 hour Le Mans race and is now doing a 3 hour Sebring race as tests and prep for an Endurance season in 2012.

Could work if both parties come together on this for a larger field and more people to help run a combined event?

JWR Will enter a Team in this.

Also, I think we should have a few more shorter Races ie. 8 Hours of Leguna Seca, 4 Hours of Road Atlanta ect.

F4H Chrisupra also said

"I'm also talking to Polaris about combining a major series. 8 races in the year at 3 hours each to form your 24 hours for example"

I think its worth the powers that be / organinsers of the Enduro event at least have a chat about it ;O)

I suppose there is scope to extend the series if other organisers are willing to host the extra races.
That way we can ALL promote the series, ALL produce media for it. It's about time the big sim racing groups worked together on something like this.
The possibilities for a massive grid at these events is high. Between the lot of us we have the ability to do it and I'm sure it could work out.

Sent you a PM on VM, so we'll look into this further when I get back. I should be around sometime in December. I know what I want to do with a series and how it will work, but I don't know how Polaris and Chrisupra want to do theirs.
