Just a week after Jaden Ransley’s ARG eSport cup victory, TCR Australia has unveiled details of an all-new TCR online championship that will be open to both Australian and New Zealand TCR competitors.
The series will look entirely different to the eSport Cup, with a switch from iRacing to the Assetto Corsa platform the most foregrounded modification.
Launched in 2014, the Assetto Corsa software has been commonly used across European TCR sim-racing series’ and offer drivers a wider range of machinery instead of being limited to the Audi.
18-cars will make up the seven-round series with free entry into a real-life competition amongst the prize pool on offer for the overall champion.
“The Carsales TCR Australia SimRacing Series is going to be a great way to continue the online racing theme as the world begins to emerge from lock down,” said ARG CEO Matt Braid.
“The ARG eSport Cup has been a terrific initiative during the period that we have been in lock down, and now we are able to following this up with a internationally-promoted series specifically featuring TCR Australia
“The programme that the WSC Group has put together, with most of the TCR car brands involved, is a fantastic real-world representation of TCR Series racing, and ARG is proud to be the second series from around the world to be selected to compete on the platform.”
The online series gets underway on June 18 with the opening round staged around a virtual Albert Park Street Circuit.
Five more rounds in Australia will follow before a unique season-finale held at the storied Macau Grand Prix venue.
