Munich – The Virtual Competition Organisation (VCO) is once again blazing a new trail with a literal interpretation of the term ‘virtual’ in its name. Phoenix McEwan will be the first virtual racing driver to appear for the VCO in a range of areas. McEwan will be the test driver before each event in the VCO ProSIM Series, with onboard videos introducing the two potential Championship Race circuits that fans can vote for. On Wednesday, these will be the circuits at Spa-Francorchamps and Road Atlanta. McEwan has been active in motor racing for some years and has built up a large fanbase on his social media channels.
Munich – The draft is history, the pairings have been confirmed, and the countdown is on to the start of the VCO ProSIM SERIES on 18 November (LIVE from 20:00 CET). However, the fact that Virtual Competition Organisation (VCO) has been able to get the company’s first racing series up and running at all is thanks in part to the partners who are committed to supporting the project with their expertise. It is no coincidence that, here too, VCO is linking the world of Esports racing with the real world.
Munich – R8G Esports still has the rFactor 2 GT Pro Series powered by VCO firmly under control. In the sprint race at the virtual “VIRginia International Raceway”, the drivers from Formula 1 star Romain Grosjean’s team celebrated a one-two result: defending champion Erhan Jajovski crossed the line ahead of Risto Kappet, followed by Jernej Simoncic (Burst Esport) in third place. As it had been the case at the season-opener in Sebring, Dutch driver Hany Alsabti then came out on top in the main race, in the R8G Esports Corvette. Simoncic and Redline driver Kevin Siggy, the only driver in the field to be competing in a BMW, took the chequered flag in second and third positions.
Munich – The countdown has begun ahead of the start of the VCO ProSIM SERIES, which will be hosted by the Virtual Competition Organisation (VCO) on the iRacing simulation platform from 18 November. On Saturday, the VCO used social media channels to announce the 44 driver duos that will meet eight times by the end of March to do battle for prize money of 50,000 US dollars. Some of the best-known drivers from the world of real-world and Esports racing will be involved, and the provisional list of participants contains representatives of no fewer than 23 nations.
