Because of the nature of the Nürburgring Combined circuit, mainly the fact that it is 25.947 km (16.123 mi) in size, we will be altering our normal race day format.

Because of the nature of the Nürburgring Combined circuit, mainly the fact that it is 25.947 km (16.123 mi) in size, we will be altering our normal race day format.
We will swap durations for the Practice and Qualifying sessions in order to ensure everyone is able to set a true time. As such, sessions will now be as follows:

  • Practice - 30 Minutes
  • Qualifying - 45 minutes
  • Warmup - 15 minutes


Also, since we no longer have LMP900 cars running this race, the race length has been shortened to 17 laps in order to maintain the ~2.4 hour duration.


Also, given the situation in the south eastern U.S., and the fact that we have many members in that area (Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, etc.), there is a possibility that a significant number of drivers may not be able to make the race.


Because of this, we are considering making the race a non-points event, and not counting it towards the championship. Since the situation in the region is currently very fluid (no tasteless pun intended) we will most likely make this decision on race day, once we are better able to assess if most or all of the drivers are able to make the race.


We hope the membership understands this decision.


See you on race day!
