Four teams announced
So far Williams Esports, Fordzilla, Racing Point, and JAESA Team Suzuki have been confirmed to take part in this series.
There will be a total of eight teams competing in the V10 R-League, so we expect to hear other big names taking part soon.
V10 R-League’s Unique Format
The first competition of the previously announced Global Racing Series, the V10 R-League offers a unique new format for race fans.
In each “match”, two teams will go head-to-head across three challenges. Each team will provide three drivers who must compete across all three challenges, with the format designed to produce a win, loss, or draw result afterwards.
So what are the teams racing in? A specially designed, single-seater monster!
Gfinity and ADMM have created a 900hp, 700kg car that can hit speeds of 220mph powered, as you’d expect, by a V10 engine.
It’s possible to have this car thanks to the highly moddable Assetto Corsa game, which will host the V10 R-League. Each team will be able to put their own livery on the car too, creating an amazing visual, and audio, spectacle.
When Is The V10 R-League?
Fans will be able to tune into the action in August 2020!
Season 1 will air across linear and digital channels, with season 2 already planned for Q1 in 2021.
Gfinity CEO, John Clark said, “In the current climate there has been massive spike interest in virtual motorsport. The V10 R-League will take it to the next level of virtual motorsport, redefining racing.”
