This series is all about getting More Female Racers into the world of Sim Racing!
The first season of this series saw 20 teams on the grid and some excellent racing! Each team had 1 female driver and 1 co-driver and the improvement from each of the female drivers as the series wore on was incredible!
Format wise, not much has changed for this second season. Each team will still require 1 female driver and 1 co-driver (this can be female or male). The main difference is that as a female driver you can sign up with a co-driver of your choice!
But what if you don’t have a teammate? We have you covered! You can sign up solo to the role relevant to you (female driver or co-driver) and following the Invitational Event you will be paired up by the organisers. If you’re registering as a solo co-driver to be paired up with a solo female driver, you must meet the requirements specified further down this page.
If you already have a teammate to race with for this series, then you can register straight away. When registering, please select the class “GT3”. 1 of the 2 drivers in the team must be female and the female driver must qualify and start each round. The co-driver in a premade team is not required to meet the requirements of a solo registered co-driver, it can be anybody of your own choice.
If you are a female driver who does not have a teammate, you can register as a solo female driver. Following the Invitational Event you will then get paired up with a solo co-driver.
As a co-driver in this series, you will be teamed up with one of the female drivers and be their point-of-contact to assist them in improving their driving and race craft. The key to being a co-driver is that you have the experience and understanding of ACC and simracing that can guide the female driver so that they, and your team succeeds. Being a co-driver does not require hours of your time to provide coaching and practice, it's more about helping your team mate as their individual point of contact and working together as a team.
To be eligible as a co-driver for this competition, you ideally must have competed in one of the following series;
-The Sim Grid World Cup
-Top 2 splits of The Sim Grid Sprint Cup or Endurance Cup
-SRO GT Esports (2019/2020)
-AOR ACC Tier 1 or 2
Candidates who have not competed in the above series list can still apply to be a co-driver by contacting Michael Hamlet on The Sim Grid discord.
