More than a thousand iRacing gamers are expected to take part in the 2010 iRacing World Tour race tomorrow, July 24th, which will raise money for Lance Armstrong’s LIVESTRONG organisation.
It begins at 8.30pm ET, and racers will contribute five cents for every one of the 160 scheduled laps – friends and family are being encouraged to donate to support the drivers taking part.
The race will see the Impala SS (Sprint Cup Car/COT) used to lap the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with the race winners getting $10 of iRacing credits. Top fundraisers will also win prizes for their efforts.
With thousands of racers expected, the event will be split into 34-car grids, all of which will run simultaneously, and you can view the top 34-car race in a live web broadcast. And in the meantime, you can always visit the LIVESTRONG site to find out more about their work to improve the lives of people affected by cancer. There’s more information on the event and how to pledge on the iRacing website.
