Welcome to the Coach Dave 6 Hours of Hockenheim, our latest one-off endurance event on iRacing!
On the first weekend of September, GT World Challenge heads to Hockenheim for the first time, so to mark the occasion Coach Dave thought it was fitting to hold our own endurance race in GT3's at the track. Only, we thought 3h - the irl race duration - was a little short, so we decided to stick with our favourite duration of 6h instead.
Teams of between 2-3 drivers are required to enter this event and teams will get to choose a GT3 of their choice from a selection of 7 GT3's. There is space for a whopping 60 cars on the grid!
To register for this event, click the "Register Team" button. On the next screen, select your team, the drivers of the car, the class you want to compete in, the car and the desired car #.
As the Coach Dave 6H of Hockenheim is a fun, one-off event there will be no stewarding present. However, an admin will be present to monitor the sessions throughout.
The admin may also call out the Safety Car if deemed necessary. Safety Car regulations are covered in the Rules tab.
*Please note that the Safety Car regulations have changed since the previous event at Spa, so all drivers are encouraged to re-read the regulations. These regulation changes have been brought in following further testing of iRacing's Safety Car procedure and the potential issues that can be present when deviating from it's automatic management of penalties and wave-arounds.
The qualifying and race will have broadcast and commentary on the SimGrid Youtube channel.
The sim time for each session can be seen in the schedule located on the "Races" tab.
Teams are permitted to run with Custom Liveries, whether they be liveries made themselves or downloaded from Trading Paints. However, any politically charged or potentially offensive material on a custom livery will see the team banned from the race. Any livery must be on Trading Paints for it to show on the YouTube broadcast.
