SCCA Hosts Five Full-Grid iRacing Groups

Full fields, full action, and none of that tenacious red Georgia clay: Welcome to virtual Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, the first stop on the new SCCA eSports Super Tour.

The SCCA hosted five iRacing groups on April 5, each with a full grid. “We’ve had 350 people signed up for the league,” explained the club’s Reece White. “We can take 40 per run group, and all five were full this week, plus 10 overflow for the MX-5.” Full race recaps can be found on the SCCA site, while the races can be watched again below. 

Coming soon, maybe: a qualifying system for future events, as the Hoosier SCCA eSports Super Tour schedule features six more weekends:

April 11: Sebring International Raceway
April 18: Virginia International Raceway
April 25: Circuit of The Americas
May 2: Road America
May 9: Watkins Glen International
May 16: Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

The SCCA has announced their qualifying procedure for this weekend's virtual Sebring event.

From their page:

The Hoosier Racing Tire SCCA eSports Super Tour on iRacing continues to evolve. In an effort to determine a more fair procedure to enter the most subscribed race groups – Skip Barber F2000 and Global MX-5 Cup – the qualifying process has been tweaked for this Saturday, April 11, at Sebring International Raceway.

Those two groups will be open to any SCCA member registered for the league. Instead of a 70 minute practice, the group will immediately enter into a 60 minute qualifying session. The fastest 35 times from that session will advance, to be joined by the top five finishers from last week’s race (who have earned the free pass).

Those now-40 drivers will then run a 15-minute qualifying session to set the race grid, followed by the 20-minute race.

Touring, Big Bore, and Spec Racer Ford will remain the same as last weekend’s race. The first 40 SCCA members to join the room when the race opens will be the field for this week.
