The next season of the 24H SERIES ESPORTS sees a reshuffling of the calendar: Spa opens the season, Circuit of the Americas is back on the docket and the Nurburgring will host a 24H SERIES race for the first time, both real and virtual.
Having played host to the season finale for the last two years, the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps will serve as the venue for the opening ball this time around. The 7 km long strip of tarmac winding its way through the Ardennes should provide ample space for a field full of drivers who will be eager to get their seasons off to a good start.
Next, the esports paddock will take a trip across the virtual Atlantic Ocean for two races in the US. Sebring features on the 24H SERIES ESPORTS calendar for the third year in succession, and has been the second race of the season every time. Besides the Sunshine State, we will also be visiting the Lone Star State and the Circuit of the Americas. After featuring on the first edition of the 24H SERIES ESPORTS, COTA makes its return to the calendar once more.

Then it’s back to Europe for another staple of the 24H SERIES ESPORTS calendar: Monza. The Autodromo located in the Royal Villa park is always a unique challenge for teams and drivers alike due to the high speed nature of the circuit. On the 2022/2023 calendar, it completes the package of different challenges that the teams will have to master in order to do well in the championship.
After Monza the series will take a small break for two months for everyone to enjoy the holidays and the start of the endurance racing season with the 24H DUBAI in January. We will return to action in February, with Round 5 of the season at a track that is new to the 24H SERIES: the Nurburgring.

Never before has the German track hosted a 24H SERIES race, but this will change in February of 2023 when the esports paddock will race around the fabled Eifel track. And we won’t just be racing around the Grand Prix loop: the full 20+ kilometres of the Nordschleife will be used for the penultimate round of the season.
The season finale, once again a 12H race, will be at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. After two seasons of being the penultimate event, the Spanish venue resumes its place as season finale that it had in the first season of the 24H SERIES ESPORTS.
The revised calendar should make for another exciting season, and with registration opening on 1 August and Pre-Qualifying on 27 and 28 August, the start of the season is closer than you think!
