As an homage to the 50th anniversary of Ford's dominating performance at Le Mans, Virtual Vintage will be hosting a 24 hour endurance race on May 21-22, 2016. We will be utilizing a pared down field of iconic Le Mans racers from 1965-1968 split across 3 classes, with cars built to meet their original race specification as closely as possible within the game, while also being balanced for parity as required.

For logistical reasons, our initial intent is to limit the field to 20 teams with 3-5 racers per team, but if there is enough interest and support, additional lobbies may be added.

More information will be presented in the coming days.

If interested, please visit Virtual Vintage Motorsport for more information.

I've started a thread for people to start compiling teams HERE. If you plan on racing, please let me know. I will start putting together organized test sessions soon to validate the builds. There may also be some changes to the car selection in the nest few weeks. Over the next few days I will get the builds uploaded to my sharefront. Full build information is available by registering at Virtual Vintage.

Did some GT/P2 testing last night with a couple of other drivers. The 250LM has a higher top speed and better fuel consumption than the Shelby, though only marginally.

For the sake of experimentation, I ran the Alfa 33 with a potential build (with race tires). The results were, in a word, interesting.

Yes, it is pulling a wheelie in both pictures. This one will need more work...

Due to a sudden and continued uptick in travel for work, this has been scrapped
