The Treq eSports team will join next seasons International Virtual Racing Association league on iRacing. We’ll drive in the ClubSport category with the soon-to-be-released Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car (the 992).
LIVE STEWARDING AND RACE CONTROL
In contrast to the official iRacing series, the IVRA league features live stewarding during race events. This adds an extra layer of realism to the sim, and even more clean racing than iRacing already has to offer. Race Control will hand out penalties to drivers who fail to drive in a clean, fair manner, who act recklessly, or otherwise affect the spirit of competition within the series. It’s also not allowed to press escape and teleport back to the pits when you wreck your car: You first have to make sure it is parked in a safe spot and then wait for a yellow flag situation and a signal from Race Control for further action. RC can also call out a Safety Car if things appear too unsafe for others. Apart from extra realism, this also adds tons of variables to account for in strategic decisions.
The ClubSport series is a multi-class league with GT3, TCR and the Porsche Cup. The calendar is as followed:
- 18 Sep 2021- 700 km of Motegi
- 30 Oct 2021 – 400 km of Mid-Ohio
- 27 Nov 2021 – 400 km of Virginia
- 15 Jan 2022 – 700 km of Road Atlanta
- 26 Feb 2022 – 700 km of Zolder
- 02 Apr 2022 – 700 km of Red Bull Ring
The Treq eSports team has already won the pre-qualifying event, and we hope to be just as competitive in the league itself!
