Welcome to the Virtual Laps of Nurburgring (VLN) brought to you by HM Engineering

About this series

This series uses various layouts of Nurburgring

We will use the S397 GT3 cars (both packs) a S397 Porsche Cup and S397 BMW M2 as three different classes

Registered drivers can run on their own or in teams

Drivers can be cross-entered into more than one car, but get points based on their highest finishing car only – subject to the 10 lap driving requirement.

Points are awarded by class.  Driver’s sharing a drive get the same points. However, the overall champion is decided by the number of points they get, which means a driver in

Class 3 could be the overall champion. Your Choice. Class Winner or Class and Overall  winner. Or switch cars (allowed) depending on circuit?

Race swaps

Swapping drivers should only join the server as spectator when they are due for their race swap. Once the swap occurs the other driver should leave the server.

Rules

All time penalties for these races are increased from 10s to 60s. See our Rules page for rule details.

Our events will be live streamed, so if you cannot make the race you can still spectate. We also have a living timing page so you can follow the action live via our Raceview portal. Our aim is to provide a competitive series for all skill levels . But with that in mind we do not allow the use of controllers in the series.

Please refer to our calendar for our race dates and locations and signup on the Registration tab.

Tracks and templates for the cars are available on the Required Downloads tab.
