Each team wishing to field a car at the EEWC main event and/or the online series must hold one of these tickets for each car they wish to enter. If your team wants to field two or more cars, you need to buy the appropriate amount of these tickets.

For EEWC all points are double including the qualifying pole position point and the extra point for completing the race. Points follow the car number, not the drivers. There is as such, no individual drivers championship.

The entry fee is not refundable. Should you not be able to field a car at the event or any of the online races, your place in the entry list will be offered to a team/car in the reserve list or sold as a single race entry.

Rules of conduct as a participating team of the 2019 Endurance eRacing World Championship.
Reasons for requirements
Communication is highly important as well as the best possible outcome for every single one of our participating teams, big or small. With several teams committing to participation budgets above 40.000 € it is important for us and the future of the entire sim racing community, to help ensure that any level of investment pays off. Clear communication is a big part of this, as well as helping to spread the knowledge of the event. This will benefit the big as well as the small teams. Historically we have had a lot of problems contacting teams with important information. We have even had teams complain that they didn’t get important information. This is not an ideal situation and we don’t want to see it repeated.
We consider everyone involved in the event, organizers, teams, sponsors, and partners as equal partners with a common responsibility to grow the event and ensure its a success to the common benefit of all.
We have seen teams and drivers who clearly like and care about the event, but they don’t share or like a single news post or piece of information. This lack of support is highly counterproductive both to your own team, other teams and the event in general. We do not have marketing budgets that can be used to spread the knowledge of the event or help brand the event. You, we and everybody else needs your help to do that.
Rules and Requirements
- A team representative must be available for regular interviews. Your team is obligated to be available for online interviews with both audio and video.
- Teams must register and email address during the ticket ordering process which they check regularly. The email address used when ordering team tickets will be the main point of contact for all information coming from the organization to the teams.

All teams will have the option to submit news articles themselves, on topics of their own choices, just as long as it is centred on the team and sim racing. As long as the team participates in the EEWC and/or the GTR24h Series, we don’t care if the news is on participation in other sim racing leagues or series. Your team may submit articles using this form: https://gtr24h.org/submit-article
Important news for the teams will be sent as newsletters to the email address used in the main contact field. And made public in the exclusive “Teams Section” on the website. Only visible to participating team members.
You can find these news pieces posted on the official Facebook page as well. We do not care much about what social media you share the news on. Just that your team and team members help spread the news, the knowledge and the messages of the GTR24h.
