So you’re thinking about trying ACC for the first or maybe you’ve just got started.
A very legitimate question that could pop in your mind would be to know how long the races are so that you could plan and organize your weekend accordingly.
The good news is that it varies quite a lot since there are two different kind of races in the GT World challenge: the Sprint races and the Endurance ones.
Though remember that you can always choose the race length you want for the single player mode.
So going back to it, Assetto Corsa Competizione is now the official game partner of the well known GT World Championhip organized by SRO.
So the Sptint races will have quite a different race length than some of the Endurance races.
Sprint races length:
So according to what the GT World Championship did in 2021, the race length of sprint races is of 90 minutes including a Pit Stop and a driver change.
Now, you won’t have to do a driver swap on ACC but the race duration still holds.
For the endurance races though, it really depends.
In fact here’s what you can get for endurance races:
- 3 Hours race
- 6 Hours race (For example the 1000 km of the Circuit Paul Ricard or the 6 hours Nurburgring GP race)
- 24 Hours race (For example the very well known Spa 24 hours)
As you can see, the race length can vary quite a lot!
From a 90 minutes race to a full 24 hours race excluding free practice and qualifyng! 🙂
Custom reace length for single player mode
But hey, you can also have a shorter races if you want, especially if you’re really busy during the day!
For single player mode you could basically choose any race distance you want.
In fact, the ACC server may still set any distance in the race, as you can see in the lobby.
In the lobby, for example you’ll see: p10′ q10′ r10′, meaning that you’ll find a 10-minutes practice, 10′ for qualifying, and 10′ for the actual race.
This suits best for drivers that are short on time and wanted to optimize their schedule.
What about online races?
Well, for online races you won’t be able to set a custom race length unless you set the race up by yourself.
Though generally you can find online races that last between 30 to 90 minutes (exluding free practice and qualifyng)
But don’t worry about it too much, you can always join different races and see which one suites you best.
Just keep in mind that the 24 hours race is a very long one so you’ll need to be well rested and organized if you’re thinking of doing it!
Time to wrap up:
So if you’re looking to try ACC, it’s important that you know in advance how long the races will be.
However, don’t worry too much as it really varies and you can always find races that suite your schedule!
You could go for the very long endurance race or for the short 30 to 90 minutes online Sprint races…
Also, you can set a custom race length for single player mode.
Having said that, I hope this guide was helpful
See you on track! 😉
