How to watch this weekend’s top esports races


Posted on

| Written by

A packed weekend of motorsport action – of the virtual variety – is coming up.

Formula 1’s Virtual Grand Prix is back for its fourth round, at a venue chosen by fans, while IndyCar’s official series is holding its final event.

Formula E’s new simracing championship continues and, if you prefer your motorsport with a helping of virtual mud, so is the World Rallycross Championship’s series.

In IndyCar, Lando Norris is seeking to win for the second time in as many starts on Saturday. He is taking on an oval for the first time as the field races on iRacing’s simulation of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and the 32-strong grid includes no fewer than eight previous Indy 500 winners.

Norris and team mate Carlos Sainz Jnr have not yet confirmed whether they will participate in Sunday’s F1 Virtual Grand Prix. However at least five other current F1 drivers will take part in the race on Interlagos, the track which was chosen by a poll of fans.

These are just two of the major esports races happening this weekend – here’s when and where you can watch them and the rest:

    1. You’re missing Porsche Esports Supercup on Saturday, with some dude called Max taking part

    2. This has been updated with the F2/F3, NASCAR and Porsche race details.

    3. The IndyCar race will also be on their YouTube channel, just like the last one.
