British F4 iRacing Trophy
While Coronavirus lockdown continues to prevail and the start of the British F4 season is delayed until mid-summer, Roman and his fellow racers are competing in the British F4 iRacing Trophy, an exciting online sim racing competition giving them a chance to pitch their racing skills against each other
Watch them virtual race each other every Monday evening. All events begin live streaming at 7.30pm so sit back and watch Roman tear the track up!
The F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost is pleased to confirm its first foray into online sim-racing using the iRacing platform as all global motorsport continues to be suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The British F4 iRacing Trophy will consist of seven rounds, with the format for each a separate practice and qualifying session, followed by two races, the second of which will feature a fully-reversed grid.
The points system used will mirror the real-life championship, with points awarded on a sliding scale from 25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1 down to 10th in each race.
As in Britain’s FIA-sanctioned Formula 4 series, competitors will tackle some of the UK’s most challenging circuits, including Brands Hatch, Silverstone and Donington Park, among others.
The winner will receive a free entry to one round of the 2020 season, which is non-transferable.
The championship will be broadcast live across British F4’s YouTube channel and Facebook page in association with Yearone Racing TV and Alpha Live, with full coverage across the competition on the series’ social media platforms.
Drivers will be unveiled across those channels, along with all the build-up to the first event on Monday 27th April
Entry is by invite only and priority is given to current or past British F4 drivers; to register your interest in taking part, please email email@example.com
“In these difficult times, the thoughts of everyone involved in the F4 British Championship are with those affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” said Championship Promoter, Sam Roach.
“We’re really excited, however, to launch the British F4 iRacing Trophy, our first step into the world of online sim racing utilising the popular and well-regarded iRacing platform.
“We’re anticipating a fantastic grid, featuring many of the household names the championship has helped to forge a career in the sport, as well as the next group of rising stars set to battle it out to follow in their footsteps when racing can eventually resume.
“Having the races live-streamed is also a huge benefit and provides some much-needed entertainment for the fans, and my thanks go to Yearone Racing TV and Alpha Live – our broadcast partners for the series – as well as Momentum Social for their help in putting this together.”
