Virtual Motorsports have announced their first one-off Forza Motorsport 4 Special Event of the 2012 season with a testing and challenging Endurance race. The challenge will be to cover the greatest distance in 2.4 hours of driving at the full Nurburgring Grand Prix circuit, with absolutely no assists or circuit guides allowed. That means it’ll be as much about surviving as driving close to flat out.
And the cars chosen for the event will add to the challenge. It’s a multi-class race with the faster option coming as the 2012 Chevrolet FLM09 in the LMPC class, with a set-up which gives in 600 horsepower at R1 938 PI. Meanwhile the second class on track will see a DTM rivalry between the Audi A4 and Mercedes C Class R2 machines with just 470 horsepower and real-wheel drive to make things interesting.
The race itself will take place at 13:00CST / 19:00 GMT / 20:00 BST on Saturday, May 5, 2012, and to take part you’ll need to register on the Virtual Motorsports forum and participate in either of two 60 minute qualifying sessions which run on Saturday April 21st and Saturday April 28th at the same times. In addition to prizes for the individual top ten, there will also be rewards for the top ten teams and privateers.
