1. Welcome to SimRacing.Club
    We are an online racing league, and has years of experience using ISI´s rFactor 2. We have several series - VEC which use URD´s mod to mirror World Endurance Championship. 6-24 hour races - its all about endurance.
    Virtual GT Championship, Virtual Le Mans Series, Porsche Super Cup and Virtual Rally Championship. Plenty of racing.

We are introducing licenses at SimRacing.Club.

Feel free to read this post - users will be updated within this weekend.
Jimmi Allison is the man behind Sim Racing Club and the Virtual Endurance Championship. On the eve of the opening round of VEC Season 9, Jimmi discussed the new season, a new broadcasting team, an rFactor film featuring VEC and a few other interesting things you always wanted to know about the championship.

Interview conducted Friday 7th October by Revolution Racing #89 driver Paul Jeffrey.

PJ: Hi Jimmi, so VEC is heading into the new season 9 on Saturday. Are you looking forward to the new season, and what do you think makes this year a bit different from previous seasons?

JA: Well several things have changed for the new season. I guess the major thing is that for this year we will be having a professional broadcasting team, Downforce Radio, who will be broadcasting Room 1 races. The previous guys have done a perfect job last year, this season will be moving to Room 2. We will have 2 broadcasts, one for each room, and they will both be of the highest standard.

Alongside that, we have removed the GTAM class, giving us 21 cars in LMGT, which should be pretty nerve wracking when the season proper gets underway at Indy on Saturday!

PJ: Speaking of the new broadcasting team, the guys are well known from work on both Eurosport and MotorsTV, how did that deal come about?

JA: Basically the deal has come about via various contacts and discussions with friends of VEC, and we are very excited to see the level of experience and professionalism they will bring to the event. One of the VEC drivers, Edmund Trevelyan-Johnson, acted as a bit of a go between for us and put the agreement together. Thanks Ed! The guys are really excited about it and are really committed to the upcoming season.

PJ: What is the broadcasting outlets used this season, and what are the plans for the future?

JA: This season we will be streaming to YouTube, Twitch and FaceBook at the same time! The natural progression would be to...

Team Vires

Q: The last VEC season was a success for your team, how hard was it to achieve that success and what do you believe were the key factors that made it happen?

A: Lovely success. Rating the difficulty of achievemt is very relative matter. We've been doing our ways, techniques, methods and team work and spirit that we always use. I believe the greatness of achievemnt is in strenght of oposition and certainlly competition within VEC is at very prestige, premium and prestine level.

Q: Who were your toughest competitors last year and which teams do you expect to be very competitive this year?

A: We've raced within GT-PRO class with vice-champions and 24h of SPA race winners GT Italia, two time race winners SRVN, two time race winner Leone, multiple podium finishes Revolution and Atlantic among other. It really depended on race. Competition was very fierce. We're moving to a new playground this season. This season we've chosen a move for LMP1. Due to unique design of this class, we believe to find new challenges. This is very exciting.

Q: Tell us about your team's drivers for this new season, their background and their capabilities.

A: We're continuing with our estamblished line up. That's myself Niki Djakovic, Goran (djole) Djordjevic, Vladan (sofke) Sofijanic and our great friend The Brit, Adam Taylor. He's taken GTE-AM season convincingly with Dark Racing last year. But, for us his work and our bond of brotherhood is what makes him perfect part of Team Vires.

Q: How would you rate and describe VEC?

A: VEC is at very prestige, premium and prestine level, as I have already mentioned. This league provides us with top of the line sportscar competition and moving into this league from outside of rF2 would surprise many with the challenge it poseses.

Q: What are your team's goals for this season and how do you expect this...
VEC has yet again been blessed with over 80 sign ups. With the amount of entries, we've come up with a new plan to try and accommodate the incredible demand for places. We wanted to avoid having a joint championship this season, so here is the plan for the new endurance racing season at SRC.

If you competed last season, the format itself isn't too different, but there are some major changes. 1. There is no PreQ. 2. There will be 2 servers - Room 1 and Room 2 - with 2 different championships. The above means that VEC R1 championship is what we first announced. In R1 will be the teams we have been handpicked (things like last year results, safety ratings, known teams and drivers, correct sign up procedure have all been taken into consideration - no change in this procedure). VEC R2 is simply a bonus championship and will be the first port of call for teams looking to race in room 1 (if any teams drop out of get kicked out, at halfway through the season we will look at the teams in R1 and R2 and see if they fit).

So the new ladder system at SimRacing.Club is:

VLMS is the start up series; this is where you will learn and start up doing multiclass endurance VEC R2 is the feeder series to VEC R1 and this will have the exact same rules, tracks and race date however start time will differ. Obviously this will be broadcast as well on YouTube. VEC R1 is the highest ranked series where you need to have earned the right to race in. We are working on something really cool and this will be presented as soon as we can.
Now teams which is picked to R2 are not forgotten. As posted, VEC R1 managers still need to pay the fee, and then behave on track. R2 is still a strong field and, as posted, should be considered almost if not as strong as R1
We have bumped up the initial entry list to 41 In room 1 we have sent out invitations to: 11 LMP1 10 LMP2 20 LMGT
In room 2 we have asked 43 teams to enter: 13 LMP1 8 LMP2 22 LMGT (obviously not all will confirm next step)
Sign up will be different than first announced, we will have an open sign up application - which means we want EVERY team to apply for a spot for the upcoming season.
Your manager will need to choose a class and a back up class if the first class dosent suit your team (this will be decided by stewards and admins).


We have to introduce a sign up fee at €25, remember we´ve been free for 8 seasons, and server bill has to be paid - and we havent signed a sponsor deal yet.
