Sebring 12hrFlorida - 7th March
The season kicks off with a long 12hr race at Sebring in Florida. Double points are awarded for this event which make it even more important for the teams to post a good opening result for the season.
Mid Ohio"Lexington, Ohio" - 21st March
Mid Ohio represents the start of a series of short endurance events. Hairpins and elevation changes make this a challenging circuit. Blind corners catch out the unwary. A good setup is essential.
Lime Rock ParkConnecticut - 4th April
The shortest circuit on the calendar is a manic and tight lap. With such a large number of cars space is at a premium which makes traffic problematic.
Sears PointCalifornia - 18th April
"A twisty and undulating circuit in dusty terrain proves very challenging for the drivers. Whats more, the dusty terrain and temperatures do their best to ruin the cars too."
PortlandOregon - 2nd May
This cracking circuit features a classic pit and back straight linked by some challenging corners. A chicane at the end of the main straight can be the scene of collisions.
MosportCanada - 16th May
"Mosport is a Canadian addition to the US leg of the tour, a venue which has held GP races and many other events in its long history. Sweeping corners and hilly sections challenge both car and driver, whom are thankful this is not one of the longer races o"
Road America"Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin" - 30th May
"Road America features a long lap over various elevations of terrain, and at 500 miles is 2/3rds longer than the shorter races. Good high speeds and slipstreaming potential make this a pleasure for the slippier faster cars."
Laguna Seca"Monterey, California" - 13th June
"The last of the short races in the season, Laguna Seca is a small twisting circuit famous for its Corkscrew corner set in a baking hot and dusty Californian landscape."
Road Atlanta 10hr"Georgia, United States" - 27th June
This 1000 mile race marks the 2nd part of the season and the start of the much longer races. The Road Atlanta event itself stretches to 10hrs making it the 3rd longest race on the calendar. This is the last race on the US leg of the championship so local
AdelaideSouth Australia - 18th July
"The race at Adelaide represents the only visit to the Southern hemisphere, and takes place on the famous street circuit. This is the first of a series of 6hr races which make up the 2nd half of the season."
IstanbulTurkey - 1st August
"Famous for its tricky turn 8, this circuit has been the scene of some fantastic races since it came into widespread use in 2005. Overtaking is possible here if you can pressure other drivers into a mistake."
MonzaItaly - 29th August
"Monza is a fast and famous circuit, and anybody fortunate enough to be driving an Italian car can expect some home support. Facing each driver are huge long straights punctuated by chicanes, most notable being turn one - the scene of several opening accid"
Spa-FrancorchampsBelgium - 19th September
"Considered by most drivers to be one of the most challenging circuits, the elevation changes, high speed corners - especially Eau Rouge make this race one to look forward to. The weather is highly changeable and can put a spanner in the works of a well t"
NurburgringGermany - 10th October
"This modern racing circuit is well suited to GT racing, and there are lots of support for the German manufacturers."
SilverstoneEngland - 31st October
"A very famous circuit and the modern home of motorsport for many. There are some fantastic sweeping bends - especially near the opening Beckets section. This is generally a high speed circuit, and is vulnerable to the British weather even in high summer"
Le Mans 24hrFrance - 21st November
The monster finale to the season. Non stop racing over 24 hours will test both drivers and cars to the limit. Triple points for this event could be crucial to the final championship outcome. Attention: the length of this race may ca

About the Le Mans Endurance Series
This is a ficticious generic series based heavily on ALMS, the defunt World GT series, and also includes Le Mans itself at the end of the season.
Endurance racing is all about lasting the distance and having a good strategy - it is not an out-and-out sprint. For this reason, this carset features additional race strategy options.
The season consists of two halves, the first leg of the championship is based in the US, made up of a bulk of 2 and 3/4 hour races, and a couple of longer 10 and 12 hour races.
The second half features much longer 6 hour races, and finally the 24hr of Le Mans. The longer races naturally put a greater strain on the cars - so successful players will need to adjust to a new strategy accordingly.
LMP1 - The pinnacle of GT racing is also the toughest to succeed in.
LMP2 - A more affordable class for developing an entry into LMP1, more competitive.
GTS - Heavily modified road going cars, the majority of which are front engined.
GT - Some popular road going cars make up the tail end of the field. A good entry into the series.
LMP1 and LMP2 have the added attraction of allowing you to select a particular engine when building your package. All of the road going cars have a fixed single engine choice.
All classes have a full selection of 5 possible manufacturers, each with various pros and cons.
The points structure is as follows:
1st - 40
2nd - 35
3rd - 30
4th - 25
5th - 23
6th - 21
7th - 20
8th - 19
9th - 18
10th - 17
11th - 16
12th - 15
If you dont finish, you dont score ANY points, even if you finish within the top 12. This puts an emphasis on not treating the races like a sprint.
As this is an endurance series, there are no bonus points for fastest lap or pole positions, etc. However, there are bonus points for the extra long endurance events:
Sebring 12hrs - Double Points; season opener
Le Mans 24hrs - Double Points; season finale; (changed from triple points)
Because there is a larger points haul for the final race - this increases the chance of the championships being open right towards the end.
Road Atlanta 10hrs - Standard points are awarded for this race, despite it's duration. As a result players may choose to experiment with this long race, instead of being conservative as in the longer races. Adventurous teams may well learn from any unusual strategies they try in preparation for the mammouth 24hrs race at Le Mans.
This was the first series to introduce the new damage repair slider. Instead of driving round with a damaged car in an endurance race, you can pit and have work done on the car to bring it up to speed again. However, this is with considerable penalty in the pitstop - and you can often fall several laps down whilst the work is carried out.
The position of the slider determines the amount of damage you are willing to accept before you take to the pits and roughly corresponds to the health bar graphic in the race replay - therefore a higher setting means you will pit as soon as there is a small amount of damage, a low setting will mean you will stay out on a damaged car.
The Le Mans Endurance Series also features a small amount of minor car-contact on occasion during heated battles for position, so this is something to bear in mind when setting your slider position.
Instead of simple retirements, there is now a chance that you will take to the pits to work on the car instead. Often the amount of work involved will put you many laps down and out of contention - however, this is often preferable to being out of the race altogether - and due to the nature of endurance racing if you stay in the race you still stand a chance of gaining some points!
Endurance racing features multiple drivers. This is represented in this series by allowing you to choose 3 driver characteristics, each one of which represents a "driver". For the purpose of race commentary, everybody sees the actual playername.
You now have options to select the starting "driver", and along with each planned pitstop the opportunity to change "driver". Successful teams will optimise their driver selection for the various phases of the race.
Another aspect of endurance racing is drivers becoming tired. This can be reduced or eliminated altogether by changing co-drivers. Failure to do so will result in a driver becoming increasingly tired, slower on track - but worst of all, the chance of a very costly mistake!
A couple of the races on the calendar feature phases of the race which are at night, most obviously Le Mans which starts in the late afternoon and progresses through the night and into the dawn on the long second day.
