The Virtual Competition Organisation (VCO) announced its plans for a new top class in international Esports racing, the Esports Racing League (ERL), at the ADAC SimRacing Expo. Starting in 2022, this is to be hosted on the three sim platforms iRacing, Assetto Corsa Competizione and rFactor 2. The Esports Racing World Cup (ERWC) will be the highlight of the season. Initially, 22 teams will be invited to battle for 50,000 US dollars and the title of ‘Best Esports racing team in the World’, from 28th to 30th January 2022. The same sum of prize money will then be on offer throughout the rest of the ERL season.
