    Forza 6: 2:4 (hours:races) of LeMans

    The new content update has some features that should make endurance racing even better. Is there interest in doing a 4-part LeMans endurance race?

    Brainstorming so far:
    - 4 separate races, day/rain/night/day
    - Each race is __ laps (I need to check how many laps it would take to go 30 minutes)
    - All R-Class Modern GT cars and modifications/setups eligible up to 880 PI (the Modern GT league has shown me that this equalizes the performance of all the cars)
    - Quick Stop (mandatory pit stop), Rolling Start, and Cosmetic Damage w/Fuel Use and Tire Wear
    - Potential: AI to fill out the race

    I'm not exactly sure how to handle tying progress together, other than just assigning points and treating it like a 4-race series. Then we could do it over the course of a weekend or a two weeks or something.

    Any interest?

    Sounds good.

    Gotta have rain in there as well.

    Definitely interested, and this time I'll try to actually show up on the right day.

    Can you actually have rain at LeMans? I'll have to check once the game is done updating.

    Yep, there's rain! And I remembered that the Modern GT leagues had a restriction of up to 880 PI, so added that as well.

    Edit: LeMans in the rain is a bit of a swimming pool, so we'll probably do a shorter stint there than and make up for it with the night stint.

    Looks like fuel consumption is about 17% per lap with the Vette.

    Balancing may be difficult at LeMans, since top speed plays such a major role and is difficult to balance for in-game from what little I've seen mentioned on reddit. Who shall submit themselves for testing?!

    I'm sure I'll be up for testing.

    BTW, here's hoping that they add the Ford GT LM GTE with next month's pack. Would seem appropriate.
