Season 2 is still in full flow, but it’s only a few months until the start of season 23/24, so preparations are also full steam ahead for our third season. This is announcement 1 of about 5 announcements that will be released over the coming weeks to reveal what season 3 has in store for you!
Our growth over the past 2 years has already been an incredible journey and we’re not done yet. That’s why we are adding yet another tier to the pyramid: the Global Endurance Cup.
In our aims to mirror real life endurance racing as close as possible, we now have equivalents for the 3 main series in European/Worldwide endurance racing. The GES being modelled after WEC, the GEA modelled after ELMS and the GEC being the equivalent of the Le Mans Cup.
Global Endurance Series
Of course, the GES returns next season as our flagship series. A brand new logo, but familiar format with 3 classes battling for wins and the championship at 9 venues around the world.
The Endurance Triple Crown will return in season 3 to make this a tradition on our calendar. The 3 races that make up the Triple Crown will take place around the same dates as their real world counterparts.
The most important change compared to the current season is that we have moved the Friday sessions to Saturday “morning” to make the series less time-consuming. The exceptions will be Daytona (ROAR on Friday) and Le Mans.
Global Endurance Academy
Also returning with a brand new logo is our Academy series, which is the ideal stepping stone into endurance sim racing with both 4- and 6-hour races, instead of this season’s 4-hour races only.
The GEA races at the same venues as the GES (with the exception of Le Mans), 2 weeks before the flagship series arrives. GEA teams have the opportunity to receive wildcard invitations to the GES races if they perform well.
Global Endurance Cup
A familiar name, but a new format for the GEC. What was our summer series, has now become the feeder series of the GES, taking place on Fridays before the GES at the same venue.
The GEC is a single-driver series with 2 classes and a race length of 2 hours.
The GEC will not race at Daytona, but we will have a “Spirit of La Sarthe” special event as the season finale, one week before the big GEM Le Mans 24.
The best-performing drivers that don’t have a seat in the GEM Le Mans 24 already will receive an invite to join a special entry to take part in the big 24. More information on this will follow during the season.
Stay tuned for more information about the calendars, cars & classes, regulations and licence system changes and the new participation fees.
