The Virtual Competition Organisation (VCO) will stage a new landmark tournament: the Esports Racing World Cup. ERWC I, the first edition of this new team competition, will take place from 28st to 30th January 2022.
A total of 22 Esports racing organisations from around the world will be competing on the simulation platforms iRacing, rFactor 2 and Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). 50,000 US dollars are up for grabs.
“The creation of the ERWC represents the logical next step for the VCO,” said Florian Haasper, CEO of the VCO. “We want to employ new ideas and creative approaches to develop Esports racing further with our own top projects. That was the case with the VCO ProSIM SERIES – and we are continuing along this road with the ERWC. The focus is on the Esports racing teams. There are countless championships on each platform but the ERWC will be a cross-platform tournament that will address the entire community.”
The VCO will be working closely with experienced partners to implement the ERWC on each Esports racing platform, such as RaceSpot TV for iRacing, P1 Gaming for rFactor 2 and SimGrid for ACC.
