WE BRING TRUCK RACING INTO YOUR HOME!
With real life racing on hold at the moment ETRA, the promoter of the FIA ETRC, has set up a digital strategy to bring truck racing into your home.
An official ETRC video game for fans was already launched last year and now as part of a digital strategy the racing truck drivers will get a chance to compete against each other in the virtual world.
Stay tuned to find out more about the third pillar of the digital strategy.
Organised on the “Assetto Corsa” gaming platform, the current truck racing drivers will compete against each other on a simulator of their choice. The virtual trucks all have the actual 2020 team livery and the same coding structure, however the drivers can make some individual modifications.
Rules and regulation are based on the real FIA ETRC and the virtual races will be monitored and supervised by an official clerk of the course, race control and officials, who all hold a DMSB license.
The ETRC digital racing challange will be broadcast live globally across ETRC’s social media platforms including on the official YouTube channel, Facebook page, Twitch and the official website.
