With all motorsports on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic — including Formula 1, Formula E and IndyCar — the only experiences available are virtual. Disney’s ESPN is set to elevate that a notch by launching a virtual racing series from Torque Esports.

The series feature the All-Star Cup, pitting racers from Formula, Formula E, IndyCar and others against top sim racers, and the Legends Trophy. The latter will include former champions like Emerson Fittipaldi, Jacques Villeneuve and Juan Pablo Montoya.

Torque Esports has partnered with Eden Games (behind Gear Club Unlimited 2), sim manufacturer AllInSports and others. The company launched last month across 60 broadcasters including CNBC and Eurosport, airing 90-minute highlight packages to up to 600 million viewers.

The company noted that its Legends race last week had a “combined record of three Formula 1 world champsionships, 11 Indy 500 victories and 124 wins.”

The series will be fun to watch from the standpoint of seeing real vs. virtual racers, who should have a huge advantage to start with. The top sim racers will get a full day’s test in an F1 team’s simulator, while Legends racers will compete to win $10,000 for their favorite charities.

It is possible you are thinking of getting involved already, for the fun and for the benefit. You can try it out and send in a report of how you feel about it.
