The TCR Europe SIM Racing, the first-ever TCR-sanctioned virtual series reserved for real racing drivers, gets underway today at 19:00 (Central European Time).
Twenty-five competitors will seat in their simulators at home ready to race on the virtual circuit of Spa-Francorchamps.
The competition will begin with a 20-minute Qualifying that will form the grid for Race 1 that will start immediately after the end of the session. Race 2 will follow back-to-back with the grid based on the results of Race 1, with the first 12-classified drivers in reversed order. Both races will be run over 8 laps.
Points will be awarded according to the same system used in the real TCR Europe series: to the top ten in the Qualifying (from 10 to 1) and the top fifteen in each race (from 40 to 1). The driver scoring the highest number of points in the event will win two free tyres for the first event of the real TCR Europe series.
All action will be streamed live Saturday on TCR Youtube channel, TCR TV, TCR Facebook page, TCR Europe Facebook page, and delayed on TCR Twitch channel.
The series is realized by TCR Euro Series Ltd. in partnership with DrivingItalia.net.
