FIA EUROPEAN TRUCK RACING CHAMPIONSHIP
ETRC DIGITAL CHALLENGE 2021
The ETRC Digital Racing Challenge will feature 4 events with 8 races and two separate grids which will run in parallel. The first grid comprises ETRC teams as well as truck racing teams from other national series.
The other grid will be filled with some of the fastest sim racers trying their hand at the virtual 5-ton 1,500 horsepower racing giants.
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 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 January 2021 at the Hungaroring.
Each round will consist of a qualifying session, followed by two 11-lap races which will be live-streamed.
The events will follow the traditional ETRC scoring system with double points on offer at the last race of the challenge.
The ETRC digital 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.
