With the first round of the SRO E-Sport series at Silverstone happening this weekend (26 April 2020), the series has unveiled the competitors that are due to compete in the 5 round competition. From real-world race drivers to talented e-sports racers, we are in for a closely fought competition.
Running on Assetto Corsa Competizione, the series will feature three classes racing in individual races with the top competitors going onto race for victory in a final race. The Pro class will consist of real world competitors such as Rinaldi Racing driver David Perel and Bentley driver Andy Soucek. The Silver class will see invited sim racers battle it out on track with the likes of David Greco and F1 Esports Series champion David Tonizza. The Am class will be decided by a public hot-competition that will be run from 26 April to 10 May 2020.
With 11 brands having some form of representation in the series, it will be an exciting competition that promises to be as close and tight as the actual series.
The first round is at Silverstone on Sunday 26 April, which will then be followed by Spa-Francorchamps (10 May 2020), Nürburgring (17 May 2020) and the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (31 May 2020). The fifth race will be on 14 June 2020, where the circuit will be decided by a public vote. The grand Finale venue will also be decided in the same way.
Each race will be one hour in length for the Pro and Silver Series on Sunday, with the action getting underway at 13.45 CET.
