With the latest June 2024 update to Le Mans Ultimate released, Coach Dave setups are now implemented directly into the game for FREE.

Today’s update to LMU saw a massive change with a plethora of new features, improvements and gameplay tweaks that bring the game into the 2024 World Endurance Championship season for the first time. 

But something that may have flown under the (new) radar was an update to the setups you can use in Le Mans Ultimate. 


Enter Coach Dave Academy who have partnered with Studio 397 to produce FREEsetups you can use directly from within the game itself. An industry first. 

Whilst you’re in the garage you will now see more options for setup choices, including the default LMU sets and now the improved Coach Dave Academy sets. 

Created by rFactor 2 pros Yuri Kasdorp and Alen Terzic these setups will help you shave whole seconds off your times. No joke!


In short, Yuri and Alen have had A LOT of success on rFactor 2 competing for podiums or wins in the Virtual Le Mans series throughout the last 4 years. So they are well equipped to deal with Le Mans Ultimate.


Yuri found himself gravitating towards endurance racing on rFactor 2 because of the preparation required on both the driver and setup side of things which he enjoys. That wrapped up with winning the Le Mans 24h in varying leagues and doing the Le Mans Virtual Series with factory team Toyota. 

From there Yuri had the opportunity to do esports full time on various sims with teams like Singularity, Red Bull Racing Esports and now MOUZ. 

Yuri currently competes on Rennsport with Mouz and is eagerly awaiting the chance to compete on Le Mans Ultimate competitively. You can follow Yuri on X here.


Just like Yuri, Alen got somewhat of an opportunity to get his name out there in the Allstar races during the Covid-19 lockdown with a couple of wins. 

Alen also drove for Corvette Racing with Tommy Milner, Dennis Lind and Jan Magnussen in the 2020 Le Mans Virtual, finishing 4th in the GT class. 

Since 2021 Alen has been driving for BMW BS Competition with a 5th and 3rd place finish at the 21 and 22 Virtual Le Mans. You can follow Alen on X here.


For now you’ll get FREE access to setups for all the Hypercars in the game, including the new BMW M Hybrid machine that was part of the update, with the GTEs and LMP2 coming in a later update, hopefully in July.

This means the following cars are ready to rock and roll Coach Dave Academy style:

  • BMW M Hybrid V8
  • Ferrari 499P
  • Cadillac V-Series.R
  • Toyota GR010
  • Peugoet 9X8
  • Porsche 963
  • Hybrid Glickenhaus SCG 007 LMH
  • Vanwall Vandervell 680

You’ll notice straight away that the Hypercars will be much easier to handle coming out of the pits on cold tyres. Then once warmed up, you’ll notice the car feeling much pointier in those low to medium speed corners. 

The setups are far superior in stability compared to the base sets also, which will give you more confidence to push harder, improving your lap times. 


Did you know that Coach Dave Delta now has full Le Mans Ultimate compatibility also!

You can now bolt on one of the new Coach Dave Academy setups from inside the game and launch Delta alongside them to start tracking all of your sessions today! 

This includes support for full stint and lap tracking, stats and session recordings, with even more to come soon! The perfect pairing to improve your speed in LMU.
