The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) has announced the new IMSA Esports Global Championship.
The virtual championship is the first IMSA-backed iRacing series dedicated to professional sim racers and sim racing teams.
The IMSA Esports Global Championship kicks off in October and will feature some of the world’s top professional sim racers and sim racing teams competing for cash purses in each event of the four-race series and for the overall series championship. Races will be broadcast on iRacing and RACESPOT YouTube, Facebook and Twitch social media channels.
The series will consist of multi-driver, multi-class racing and will feature iRacing’s modeled GT3 and TCR cars. It will also enable participants to develop working relationships with eight of the manufacturers competing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge: BMW, Ferrari, Honda, Hyundai, Lamborghini, McLaren, Mercedes-AMG, and Porsche.
Further details surrounding the 2022 IMSA Esports Global Championship will be announced at a later date.
