CIRCUIT

You will be racing on the Nordschleife - Endurance layout. It combines the legendary Nordschleife circuit with a new GP layout for a total of 25.4 km! Track knowledge is essential to drive fast here. Nordschleife section aka the Green Hell was built all the way back in 1947. A narrow track winds through a dense forest just meters away from the track with fast blind corners. Get it right and it's bliss, get it wrong and you're in a barrier. The new GP circuit section provides much more opportunities for overtakes and is much safer.

CAR CLASSES

Just like in real-life Nurburgring 12h races, we want that all levels of drivers could participate and have a great experience from professionals to beginners. To make the competition safer and more enjoyable we limited who can drive what car. 

You can choose from 2 car classes 8 GT3 cars or 2 GT4 cars.

  • The GT3 class is very fast and tricky to control in Nordschleife.
  • Meanwhile, GT4 is a slower, easier car to handle and just as fun. Maserati doesn't have ABS or TC but takes bumps very well. Porsche has ABS and TC but can be twitchy over bumps. GT4 also have a mostly fixed setup. You can adjust fuel, brake bias, TC, front anti-roll bar.

High-level racing & REQUIRED CLASSIFICATION

We want to ensure that only the most dedicated and skillful teams take to the start line, which is why there are two classification requirements:

  • Racing License. AM for GT4. PRO-AM for GT3.
  • Minimum valid practice laps. 10 for GT4. 10 for GT3.

Just like in some real-life racing series in Nordschleife, there are valid practice laps requirement for all drivers to classify and be able to enter the race. The valid laps don't need to be set one after the other. Set the laps and train in our continuously running free practice sessions. If you drive somewhere else your valid laps won't count!

Divisions

Divisions will be ordered by the fastest lap from the free practice session. More specifically by an average of the fastest laps set by the team. So if you want to race in the first division which will have live race control and live broadcast make sure you and your teammates put in a good lap in the free practice session of this event. You can see in which division you are currently if you have a Premium subscription. The final grid slots and division count will be clear after the registration confirmation has ended.

ENDURANCE USING ONE ACCOUNT

It’s enough to have one WSS account per team to participate in the race. IT IS NOT mandatory to have at least 2 drivers in a team anymore!

All the teams in the race will have to make 5 (five) Long Pitstops, which will take 3 minutes each. It doesn’t matter if you do a driver swap during the Long Pitstop or not. However, you need to represent a team to participate in this event, even if you will race using one account. Find a team or create a team.

ENDURANCE USING MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS

It is also possible for a team to race from different WSS accounts. You will need to make a minimum (five) Long Pitstops or do the driver swaps. To race with your team members you need to join or create a team. A maximum of 5 drivers in one team are allowed.
