just curious as to how many of you enjoy the endurance races and will any of you be teaming up with some friends and have driver changes? i have a friend with the racing wheel and a big tv and surround sound so we plan on doing endurance races at his place and i cant wait! 24 hours at the ring would be intense and maybe by the end of it i will have the track down.
I'm seriously not thinking in doing them (unless the AI is really good), since the only fun 24 hour race I had in GT4 was the Ring with a 200pts setup (won by 2-5 minutes can't remember for sure), both Sarthe races were a joke and a pain to complete (could easily win by over 20 laps of I didn't left the game unpaused 2 or 3 times for half an hour..), and that's something I would call really boring, so no I'm not looking forward to it (B-spec will take care of those), unless there's a way to organize a team race online for 24hours races, but would be hard to setup.
As for trying with friends well we hardly have that kind of time and all of us will be playing individually so we would end up doing them alone anyway...
Still I'm not sure if I will completely avoid doing them full A-spec alone again, but I would need a really strong reason to do that, since after the first 3 or 4 hours if the AI is bad, then it's no fun at all (still I loved the Roadster Endurance in GT4 for 200pts... 4 hours of nearly flawless driving with the 2nd place always 1 or 2 seconds away, never more then that...)

I love endurance races and am really looking forward to doing them in GT5. I hope it is implemented in a way that allows us to have a driving team so that each person does their few hours and rotates. It may not be like that in game, but either way I will still enjoy them. 24h race at the ring would be a blast.
I'm going to do the endurance races for sure, at least everything off-line. Any 24 hour race may be b-spec'ed, as I may not have the time to those... Online races, it'll depend on what's available. If it's like GT5P, where new races becomes available, I may compete in some 2-4 hour races, depending on track and car.
