Die IVRA gibt erste Details zur GT Sprint Series bekannt: Zweistündige GT3-Rennen in iRacing bilden den Rahmen der Serie, die mit Heusinkveld einen Kooperationspartner gefunden hat – die Niederländer stellen drei Hardware-Preise für die jeweiligen Klassensieger. A feature requested by the community will be on board as well.
While the IVRA GT Sprint Series field will consist exclusively of GT3 cars, the participants will be divided into three classes. or each of these classes, Heusinkveld will provide a pedal set: The winner of the PRO class will receive Ultimate+ set including baseplate, the two other class winners can look forward to a set of Sprint pedals each, also including baseplate.
“For us, this collaboration is one of the bigger ones. We are very happy that Heusinkveld provides us with the pedals to reward our driver field sufficiently for the upcoming season”, IVRA organizer Pascal Radschun is pleased, who also confirms a feature requested by the community: “The Safety Car will now also be used in the GT Sprint Series. This can make even 2-hour races exciting again very quickly,” says Radschun. Another new feature is that it is no longer necessary to change drivers for the new season, meaning individual entries are now also possible.
