    post a link to watch it... maybe is there a 24 hour recording lol or just bits and pieces.. Thanks also what software did they use to incorporate the real race into rfactor? Interesting I would like to do that but not for a 24 hour race

    Not sure what they used. We just gave them permission to use the software. They were responsible for everything else. They posted a few photos of them doing it. I don't think the show has aired yet, but when it does, they should put something up on their Youtube.

    Nice. I heard that they beat the actual race by a few laps? I guess that's not bad considering they were probably using a mod. Over 24 hours that's not bad at all. :)

    track was the fcmg modified version of ISI Northampton (with terrible looking racing groove texture) not sure what the mod was but some eagle eyed person will no doubt know, the car was an Aston Martin DBR9.

    Well, there's a good clue in the list of teams on that last screenshot.
