A world-first will take place on 13/14th June, the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual. The biggest esports endurance race yet seen is being organised by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and Motorsport Games.
Run-on similar lines to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, round 7 of the FIA WEC which will be held on 19/20th September, this premiere will be dedicated to professional racing drivers and sim racers. It will be governed by sporting regulations, which have more than 90 different elements.
Officially launched last week, the sporting regulations for the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual are now available.
Among the essential points to be mastered by the participants are the names of the teams, livery design for each entry which can be personalised by the teams, qualifying, the starting procedure, flags, penalties, driver changes, track behaviour, communications, accidents, repairs, network connection problems …some different elements to the real-life 24 Hours of Le Mans, but many the same!
