WELCOME TO BARCELONA 24H!

on Assetto Corsa Competizione.


FREE TO ENTER

To have larger grids and more interesting races for both the drivers and the viewers we made this special event free to enter.


SUBMERSE YOURSELF

into the world of endurance racing, where strategy, dealing with traffic, and driving fast yet consistently is key. You can create your own team or see recruiting teams list here. You can choose from GT4 and GT3 class cars.


CLASSIFICATION - REQUIRED PRACTICE

Each driver needs to complete 20 laps in the EVENT’S free practice server, to be able to register for the event until the end of the registration. To classify for GT4 class, 20 laps must be driven with any GT4 class car. To classify for GT3 class, 20 laps must be driven with any GT3 class car.


CIRCUIT

Barcelona circuit has been hosting F1 races for many years, among many other sprint and endurance series. It has long high-speed corners, some medium-speed corners, and a very slow chicane before a very long finish straight. It has plenty of run-off areas, so a contact with another car or a loss of control shouldn't send you into a barrier and end your race.


IMPORTANT!

Please read the rules and regulations of this event in the "Rules" section.


new - ENDURANCE USING ONE ACCOUNT on acc

For special events on Assetto Corsa Competizione, 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!

To make the racing fair for all teams, you need to do 10 mandatory pitstops with mandatory tyre changes. However, you still 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 here.

 

ENDURANCE USING MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS

It is also possible for a team to race that's made up of 2 to 5 different WSS accounts. You will need to change the tyres a minimum of 10 times. You need to join or create a team to race with your team members. A maximum of 5 (five) drivers in one team are allowed. 

How to perform driver swap?

Briefing starts 1h before the server starts and will take approximately 30 minutes. 

The briefing will be on the World Sim Series Discord special events channel

GOOD TO KNOW:

  • The minimum driver count in one team is set to 1
  • The maximum driver count in one team is set to 5
  • Pit lane speed. Don’t forget to reduce speed before entering the pit lane! ACC will give a penalty for speeding in pits. Also same when exiting pit lane - if you are using an automatic pit limiter it might cut a bit too early and you will get a penalty. We recommend accelerating only after driving over the exit line even with an automatic pit limiter.
  • The weather in the race will be adjusted according to real-life forecast predictions.
  • Racing incidents should be reported using the ‘Report Driver’ system inside the event results page. All reports will be reviewed by race control after the race and time penalties will be added to the total time for the team that will break the rules.
  • Steam Account. Make sure to use the same Steam account for registering and driving during the event - your steam ID is captured when you register and a server slot will be reserved for that specific Steam account.
  • The Primary Driver must connect to the server first. Otherwise, you may be stuck in spectator mode.
  • Custom car liveries can be uploaded by premium users, see documentation here.
  • By default, custom liveries are not installed for participants to prevent game freezes and performance issues.
  • However, if you have no problem with that and would still like to see all custom liveries, you need to enable this
  • In your WSS settings (User menu > Settings > Game Content > Install ACC Liveries)
  • Make sure you follow maximum driver stint time. See rules section 2.12.7 and 2.12.8.
