In 2022, The Esports Racing League (ERL) will be hosted by Virtual Competition Organisation (VCO) on the three sim platforms iRacing, Assetto Corsa Competizione and rFactor 2.
Up to 30 teams will battle for more than 50,000 US dollars over the course of 12 events. The same sum of prize money will then be on offer during the second Esports Racing World Cup – ERWC II – to be held early 2023. The most successful ERL teams will qualify for this VCO pinnacle event.
The ERL gets up to speed in March 2022. The ‘ERL Spring Cup’ will take place over two months. After three regular events on ACC, rFactor 2 and iRacing, the ‘Spring Masters’ on ACC will complete the first Cup contest of the year for the 12 best-placed teams in the ERL Cup standings. Two more cups will follow as the season progresses, rounded off with the ‘Summer Masters’ (rFactor 2) and the ‘Fall Masters’ (iRacing).
The 12 best-placed teams overall after the Fall Cup will then battle for the Esports racing crown in ERWC II, from 3rd to 5th February 2023.
