Tomorrow is one of the biggest days in the history of sim racing. The 24h of Le Mans Virtual takes place with a star filled line-up. Fernando Alonso, Charles Leclerc, Nicki Thiim and Nick Tandy is just a few of the names who will compete during the 24 hours. 30 LMP2 and 20 GTE cars make a total of 50 starters for the biggest sim racing event in history. The LMP2 class will all drive the Oreca 07, which has been dominant in the real life version too in recent years. In the GTE class, the competition is a bit different, because just like in real life, multiple car manufacturers will battle out for the victory. Ferrari, Porsche, Aston Martin and Corvette have all put together strong line-ups of their own factory drivers combined with the very elite of sim racing. The platform used for this event is rFactor 2 which is developed by Image Space Incorporated with Studio 397 taken over in 2016. Last weekend, the official endurance series of rFactor 2, the Virtual Endurance Championship finished the final round their 12th season. With a great variety of cars and experience with hosting endurance races on a very high level, the scene is set for an event, which could take sim racing to the next level. You can watch the race all over the world. Beside big TV companies purchasing right to broadcast the race, you will be able to tune in on Twitch, Youtube, Facebook and on Motorsport.tv.
