This weekend marks an historic moment for the genre of sim racing, as the WEC, Automobile Club de l’Ouest and Motorsport Games are set to host what could well turn out to be the largest organised virtual race in history – the Le Mans 24 Hours Virtual.
Held as an officially sanctioned event in place of what would have been the real Le Mans 24 Hours this weekend, the race features an incredible selection of official teams, manufacturers and drivers. Two Formula 1 World Champions, three Indy 500 victors and seven outright Le Mans 24 Hour winners join together with some of the finest rFactor 2 sim racers racing side by side with their real world contemporaries .
Held at the beautiful Le Mans circuit in rFactor 2, and making use of the LMP2 and GTE content within the simulation, the race is set to become a high watermark for the increasingly popular esport movement we are experiencing at present.
