With real life racing on hold at the moment, ETRA has set up a digital strategy to bring truck racing into your home
An official ETRC video game for fans was already launched last year and now as part of a digital strategy the racing truck drivers will get a chance to compete against each other in the virtual world.
The virtual truck racing season will feature 8 events and is only open to full-season entrants of the FIA ETRC and will also see ETRC drivers who have been granted a special entry.
Organised on the “Assetto Corsa” gaming platform, the current truck racing drivers will compete against each other on a simulator of their choice. The virtual trucks all have the actual 2020 team livery and the same coding structure, however the drivers can make some individual modifications.
The virtual races will take place on Sundays with the first round being held on 24 May at the Hungaroring.
Each round will consist of two races which will be live-streamed with race 1 starting at 18.00 CET and race 2 starting at 19.00 CET.
Rules and regulation are based on the real FIA ETRC and the virtual races will be monitored and supervised by an official clerk of the course, race control and officials, who all hold a DMSB license.
The ETRC digital racing challenge will be broadcast live globally across ETRC’s social media platforms including on the official YouTube channel, Facebook page, Twitch and the official website.
