    Practice server is online: S397 - 12h Sebring
    You must own: Sebring, Endurance pack and both GT3 packs

    Invites such as the GT3 qualifiers should now get together and discuss what class they want to run, there are no limitations - so LMP2, GTE or GT3

    Since there are only 20 minutes for qualifying, I assume it will be a private quali session, or am I wrong?
    I believe it would be better to have a proper session where every class goes out one by one, but that's just me.
    In private quali it feels like hotlapping, the immersion of racing is sort of gone.

    With multiple class you should do 40 min qualify, 20 min GTE/GT3 & 20 min P2

    I wouldn't worry too much about the quali format in a 12h race.
    Whatever it is it will get the job done and drivers can move on to the actual show.

    even if it is solo Qualifying, think about it. roughly 6 minutes of your time will be alone...the next 12 hrs you will be surrounded.
    Enjoy and good luck to all the competitors

    That's not the one, that's for the actual race isn't it, I am waiting for the next competition to be announced to have another crack at qualifying and the fun that comes with it :)

    One question in order to join the race with team mates.. everyone has to qualify in or just one member (like 3h event)?

    You should only register to the class you really want to do, since i promise you, you will have to put in significant time to get in ;)

    Will we know the amount of avaliable places in each class beforehand?

    I mean accounting for the places lost to qualifiers from the people invited.
