SCCA Partners with iRacing for Virtual Runoffs

SCCA Partners with iRacing for Virtual Runoffs | THE SHOPiRacing and the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) have partnered to create a virtual version of the SCCA Runoff, the organizations announced. Utilizing the Super Session model, drivers will have the opportunity to qualify for the iRacing SCCA Runoffs over the week of Oct. 17-21, 2022, before the top qualifiers strap in over the course of a marathon eight-hour broadcast day on October 22.

“The SCCA Runoffs are one of the most prestigious events in American road racing, and we’re excited to officially add them to the iRacing special event schedule in 2022,” said Kevin Bobbitt, director of marketing at iRacing. “Giving our racers another opportunity to compete in top-level virtual road racing, while offering them a completely different slate of cars from the norm to race with, is an incredible proposition, and we can’t wait to see who takes the victory across our largest special event vehicle lineup ever.”

As in the real world, the iRacing SCCA Runoffs will be held at VIRginia International Raceway, and the eight competing classes will similarly be modeled after vehicles that take part in the Runoffs every year, the organizations said. Sessions in each class will be held once every four hours from Monday-Friday, with all drivers holding a D class road license or above eligible to race and earn their way into the Super Sessions. All races will be 35 minutes in length.
