Featuring selected endurance events from the official iRacing calendar, the 2022 VCO Grand Slam starts this weekend, April 9th and 10th, as sim drivers from around the globe will comepete at the Nurburgring for 24 hours.
Each year, all iRacing susbcribers can take part in special team endurance events. And the Virtual Competition Organisation (VCO) has been covering four of these races for the last few years. Not only do they cover the ‘top split’ with commentary from Radio Show Limited and RaceSport TV Esports, but the class winning teams will receive a VCO Grand Slam Trophy.
In addition to rewarding the drivers, five broadcast viewers will be chosen at random to win 50 iRacing credits, which is handy if they want to invest in a car or track to compete in the future.
“The VCO Grand Slams on iRacing are almost a tradition now,” said Florian Haasper, CEO of VCO. “We are very grateful to iRacing for allowing us to be a partner of four of their most prestigious events. The Grand Slams have their own unique character, Nürburgring, Watkins Glen, Road Atlanta and Suzuka present totally different challenges for the teams. I am confident that we will see four exciting, fiercely contested races.”
Kevin Bobbitt, Director of Marketing at iRacing, said: “We are glad to partner with VCO for a third round of Grand Slam Special Events on iRacing. This series of events turned out to be very popular among teams and drivers on the service. By providing trophies and bringing the familiar voices from Radio Show Limited to the broadcasts, VCO adds some additional promotional value to these those four events. I think our special events at the Nürburgring, Watkins Glen, Road Atlanta and Suzuka will be really impressive this year.”
