This weekend, starting on the 12th of May, the next event on the 2023 iRacing Special Event calendar is set to kick off with yet another 24 hour endurance race. This one might possibly be the most grueling of them all. In virtual Germany, the Nürburgring 24h is scheduled from the 12th to the 14th of May.
This is the seventh official Special Event on iRacing’s calendar for 2023. It is also the second of three 24 hour endurance races, following the Daytona 24 in January, ahead of the Spa 24 in July.
There are once again four timeslots to partake in this weekend. The first one up is on Friday evening and the last one starts up on Saturday afternoon.
These are also team races, so anywhere from two to 16 drivers can hop into a single car and compete with the fair share rules in play. Of course, anyone can drive the race solo as well, but they won’t be able to be classified and it will ultimately affect iRatings and such.
Check out the timeslots, BoP and the rest of the details below, courtesy of the iRacing forums. Will you be participating in this event? Let us know in the comments below!
