As you may have seen from our ‘News’ section, virtual racing has become a modern mainstay of the motorsport world today. This as we know is due to the global impact and disruption of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Recent examples include the addition of six new wildcard entries which were added to the eSports supercar finale on Wednesday the 10th of June 2020 and the announcement of the first ever 12h Monza. If anything, it shows how the love and passion for motorsport can endure by transferring itself to the digital sphere for the meantime.
