The first competition – the Spring Cup – will see us continue with the hugely popular Mazda MX-5 Car, visiting a range of tracks in the states and the UK, from the undulating Road Atlanta to the world famous Brands Hatch Grand Prix track.
The Summer Cup, on the other hand, will be an entirely British affair; drivers will step up into the more powerful front wheel drive Audi RS3 LMS TCR car to tackle our own virtual UK Touring Championship, visiting a variety of iconic British tracks.
The final test for drivers in the SMRC Esports Championship – the Autumn Cup – will see a return to rear-wheel-drive competition but this time in single seaters. We have outlined the dates for the Autumn Cup (see calendar tab) but full details of the car and tracks will be released closer to the time (this is to help us evaluate and fit in any newly released content into the programme).
