Motorsport UK iRacing Esports Series powered by iZone
Single seaters not usually your thing? Lockdown is the perfect time to give this inaugural Esports Championship a go!
Motorsport UK and iZone Driver Performance are excited to announce the launch of an official 13 round, Dallara F3 iRacing championship.
The championship will be open to all Motorsport UK competition licence holders (except RS Clubman licence holders) and Trackside members, aged 14+ years at the time of qualification. If you hold an RS Clubman licence or do not hold a 2020 competition licence, simply sign up to the Motorsport UK Trackside Membership by visiting www.trackside.motorsportuk.org and use the following code for 20% discount off the RRP of £24.99: iZONE20.
Competitors will also require access to the iRacing platform – all Motorsport UK licence holders enjoy a three month free subscription to iRacing, accessible from their Member Benefit area of the Motorsport UK website.
*Non-UK residents will need to use the Motorsport UK postcode (SL3 0HG) when registering for a new Trackside Membership licence.
Qualification runs from Monday 25th May – Friday 29th May, 7pm BST and will take place at the same time every night that week. Each entrant will be allocated to a qualification evening which will follow the following format:
