      Participation points: +25 per split.
    • 4 warnings before cut track penalty (but game controls this, so you might get a penalty before if you cut hard)
    • Penalties will be added to race time on the actual race
    • Drivers whom are registered to a Le Mans Virtual Series team are ineligible to compete in Le Mans Virtual Cup
    • The top two drivers will be invited to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual alongside pro drivers (to be determined by the organisers) either on-site at Autosport International Show or online

    • Car setups will be fixed for qualifying and the race
      Steering lock, brake bias and brake pressure can be changed.
    • Qualifying will be held at set times before each race and will determine which “split” a driver will compete in and the starting order of the race will be determined by this
    • Drivers are allocated championship points based on their finishing position (top 3 splits only)
    • The top 30 drivers at the end of the first three races will be invited to the Super Final on the 17th December
      • The grid order for this race will be determined by the championship position.
    • Full damage simulation will be implemented

    It would be nice if in the comp system the car in use were actually mentioned so people wouldn't have to check the forum to find out it is the lmp3.
    Because it's the actual car that drew me into trying it out and I was randomly informed of it.
    So sometimes the title of the series is a dead giveaway but when it is not there should be a mention of the car in use somewhere in the info before one sign up.

    In regards to the points per race, do you score points based on finishing position for all three splits (35 for 1st place, 30 for 2nd, 28 for 3rd) as well as the 25 participation points, or is that just for top split?

    Gentlemen,
    Goodnight. Alright?

    Please help me, the virtual Lemans 24h virtual championship to be held now in January 2022, will be held on which access server for the game "rFactor 2"? Because I'm interested in signing up to participate.

    Awaiting return.

    Thanks.

    Let me answer you here instead of PM
    If there is 1 split it will get 0 participations points
    If there is 2 splits topsplit will get 25 and then the lowest will get 0
    If there is 3 splits topsplit will get 50 and split 2: 25 and lowest 0
    And this then continues.
