SRO E-Sports GT Series, Kunos Simulazioni and Ak Informatica will join forces to organise a two-hour Assetto Corsa Competizione race at Monza next weekend (29 March), uniting real-world and sim drivers while raising money for charity.
The Italian circuit was set to open the 2020 GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS season prior to the global COVID-19 pandemic and will now provide a fitting stage for the online contest. Scheduled to run at 14.00 CET on Sunday, the event will feature 50 drivers racing Assetto Corsa Competizione, the official game of SRO Motorsports Group.
Real-world racers, celebrities and professional sim drivers will be invited to take part, while the event will also feature 10 wildcard entries chosen through a public hot-lap contest. This will be open from 23 to 26 March, with the five fastest drivers earning an invite to race.
