Season 1 is coming to an end, and that can mean only one thing: the Gathering of Tweakers Season Closure!
GoT Le Mans 195
This season, the Gathering of Tweakers organizes the GoT Le Mans 195. The competitors will use the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (991), and will fight to the finish in a 23 lap race at Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans.
Global SimRacing Channels and iRacing Live will cover the race live through the following channels:
GSRC channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/GSRCBroadcasting/ (The direct link to the broadcast will be published later)
iRacing Live: http://www.iracing.com/live/
Custom Paint Schemes Optional but encouraged
We would like to see as much as possible Custom Paint Schemes as it makes the live broadcast much interesting to look at. Just use Trading Paints as the broadcasters and most of the drivers have that running.
