With the SRO GT World Challenge motor racing events postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis, an online e-sports series has been devised using Assetto Corsa Competizione, the official GT World Challenge Powered by AWS racing simulation game.

The 5-round series features three classes competing in separate races, followed by a grand finale race featuring the top performers in each class.


The opening round of the 2020 SRO E-Sport GT Series action begins with one-hour races for both the Pro and Silver Series at 13.35 CET on Sunday, April 26. Coverage will be provided across a range of channels, including the GT World YouTube and Dailymotion accounts and the SRO Motorsports Twitch and Facebook pages.
