    SRO E-Sport Championship launches multi-event 2020 programme

    • Five-round championship and grand finale confirmed
    • Separate classes for real-world drivers, top sim racers and public qualifiers
    • Best of each to face off in grand finale at fan-selected circuit


    The new SRO E-Sport Championship will launch this month at Silverstone, kicking off a series of Assetto Corsa Competizione races that will play out at the world's most iconic and challenging circuits.

    Organised by SRO E-Sport GT Series, Kunos Simulazioni and Ak Informatica, the new multi-event concept follows hot on the heels of a popular charity race at Monza (29 March) which raised money for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
    The inaugural contest featured real-world GT drivers, pro sim racers and several wildcard entrants selected through a public hot-lap competition.

    Building on this successful one-off event, the SRO E-Sport Championship will see three classes competing in separate races before the best from each come together for a deciding final.
    The Pro Series will feature real-world GT drivers, while the Silver Series will be reserved for dedicated pro sim racers.
    Both are set to undertake five rounds and the top-20 points scorers from each will progress to June's grand finale.

    The opening contest will take place at Silverstone on Sunday 26 April, beginning a run of five races in eight weekends.
    Round two will be staged at Spa-Francorchamps (10 May), a track synonymous with GT racing as host of the marquee Total 24 Hours of Spa.
    Next, competitors will tackle the 4.5km Nürburgring layout (17 May) followed by round four at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (31 May).

    The fifth event will conclude the regular season on 14 June.
    Exactly where the action is staged will be determined by a public vote, giving fans the opportunity to choose from a range of world-leading circuits featured in Assetto Corsa Competizione.
    Each race will enjoy full coverage across a range of channels, including the GT World YouTube and Dailymotion accounts and the SRO Motorsports Twitch and Facebook pages

    The Am Series will take place over five consecutive Saturdays from 16 May.
    Entrants will be decided by an open hot-lap qualifying that runs from 26 April to 10 May, with the fastest 40 earning their spot on the grid.
    They will tackle the same set of circuits as the Pro and Silver drivers, racing at Silverstone (16 May), Spa (23 May), Nürburgring (30 May), Barcelona (6 June) and a to-be-decided venue on 13 June. Each event will be live-streamed on Twitch.

    A total of 50 drivers will participate in the deciding contest, with the venue once again selected by public vote.
    Pre-registration is open now on www.sro-esport.com, with further details and race formats for the inaugural SRO E-Sport Championship set to be revealed next week.

    +1 to that!
    I must say that the charity event was held on a really high level. Comentators and above all drivers put s really good show without the childish rivalry of most other events I did see.
    Keep up the good work!

    Wouldn't a hotstint contest be more relevant than a hotlap?

    No I'm not asking because I have more chances to enter through a hotsint competition... :oops:

    This, basically. Endurance is about consistency and hotstints are the way to go. And the longer the better :D

    hotlap is only a ticket for aliens. i prefer more "realistic Drivers"


    Hotstint, definitely. It gives a chance to everybody who works in consistency.

    I think this will do a lot better than last year's SRO on-track tournament. Having just 10 drivers in a race was honestly boring. It probably did cost a lot as they had to bring all the rigs and people to each track, when for the viewers it made no difference where the ACC race was taking place. I think ACC made a great leap forward with the improved netcode, start procedure/first lap and collision model. Now having 50+ online drivers on a track is almost seamless, and truly enjoyable to watch as there are duels at any given time of the race and blue flags. The BOP allows all cars to compete, presenting the audience with a great variety of cars, and also making race strategy very important.
    Having watched the Monza charity event, the only thing that could be improved is the usage of replays and maybe some announcements for fastest laps. Another thing SRO must work on is having the real GT3 drivers put in the hours in ACC so they can be competitive with the simracers.

    Really good stuf !!

    It will be even better if you could do the same for lower skill drivers. For exemple a mini championship replacing cp races.

    Probably no so easy to do but will open this kind of event to everyone (i mean low skill driver).

    Looking forward to giving it a shot to try and get in. TBH I'm not fast enough but its still exciting to try.

    Or I can apply as a pro, LOL. I mean I am a Lemons driver, and I have an expired IMSA license from 2005. Do I count as a pro? Hehe

    Let's hope the qualifying hotlap isn't Monza for a bit of variety...

    Not that I'd be anywhere near top 40...
