The TCR Europe SIM Racing, the first-ever TCR-sanctioned virtual series reserved for real drivers will kick off Saturday with a grid of twenty-five cars.
On the digital circuit of Spa-Francorchamps most of the TCR Europe Series regulars will face guest top-drivers from other TCR series, such as the 2018 European champion Mikel Azcona, Niels Langeveld and Kevin Ceccon.
All drivers, from home, will be steering digital cars in their actual liveries and representing eight different brands, while the new CUPRA Leon Competitición TCR will be available from one of the next events.
The format of the series will see competitors sitting in the simulator for a twenty-minute Qualifying session and two back-to-back races of 8laps each. The grid of the second race will be based on the final results of Race 1 with the top 12 in reversed order.
All action will be streamed live Saturday, May 2, from 19:00 (CET) on TCR TV, TCR Facebook page, TCR Europe Facebook page, TCR Youtube channel, and delayed on TCR Twitch channel.
The scoring system will follow that of the real championship, awarding points to the top ten in the Qualifying (from 10 to 1) and the top fifteen in each race (from 40 to 1).
After Spa, the series will race at Red Bull Ring (May 13), Hungaroring (May 27), Le Castellet (June 10), Zolder (June 24), Monza (July 8) and Barcelona (July 22).
The series is realized by TCR Euro Series Ltd. in partnership with DrivingItalia.net.
