Introducing the Spa 3H Invitational Special Event
Comprising entrants in the LMP2 and GTE category, our Spa 3-Hour Invitational brings together some of the best esport drivers, community racers and rFactor 2 experts for a challenging encounter on our new laser scanned Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps track. Multi-class racing at the king of European endurance venues – in rFactor 2 – just doesn’t get better than this.
Support for the main Invitational will be in the form of the nimble Tatuus F.3 T318 and fearsome Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars, set to take place before the main event in two 25 minute sprints to the flag. No pit stops, no time to rest, just pure and unadulterated racing from green to chequer.
3 Hour Endurance Race
The showpiece Spa 3-Hour Invitational event is without doubt our premium track activity during this festival of racing. Bringing together the beautiful LMP2 and GTE cars of rFactor 2 for a semi-endurance race at Spa Francorchamps is something we have been looking forward to putting together for a very long time. Featuring invited teams and drivers from the world of motorsport and esport alongside community entrants, we fully expect this will be a race of high drama and excitement, a perfect way to welcome this much sought after and iconic track into the rFactor 2 family.
Representing the world of real life motorsport, the Spa 3hr Invitational will feature entrants from the likes of Porsche and BMW taking to the stage alongside big name esport stars. Merging the world of real and virtual motorsport is an important aspect of what we do here at Studio 397, and we think it will be fascinating to see how the esport and community talents fair against their real world racing counterparts.
As well as running our main 3-hour endurance event, we’ve also lined up an action packed support race package for drivers and fans to enjoy. Comprising two short and sharp 25-minute sprints in the Porsche Cup and Tatuus F3, we expect the action to be fast and frantic throughout – with plenty of overtaking and drama sure to unfold.
These sprint races will proceed the main endurance centrepiece, and are open to invited drivers and community racers who qualify via our event hot lap competition, setting a lap within the top 20 times.
