With the race in Daytona the EuroNASCAR begins its virtual adventure – Shortly before the prologue, the format was modified

Like many racing series worldwide, EuroNASCAR will start its own virtual racing series this week. Immediately prior to the kick-off on April 21 on the Daytona International Speedway circuit, the format of the EuroNASCAR Esports Series was adjusted once again.

A total of 60 drivers are allowed participate in a virtual EuroNASCAR event, but only 36 of them make it to the main race. The event kicks off with a ten-minute lone qualifying session, after which the drivers are allocated to the three heats. These extend over ten minutes. Per race, the best ten drivers enter the thirty-minute main race. The remaining drivers have the chance to fight for one of the last six sports on the grid in a fourth heat.

The rules before the modification: Originally only two heats and one “Last Chance Qualifier Race” were planned. For each preliminary round, the top 15 drivers were supposed to advanced to the main race, six sports would have been awarded in the Last Chance Qualifier. A total of 64 drivers would have been able to take part in a EuroNASCAR Esports Series event. The length of the races and the rules for the allocation of the starting numbers have not been changed.
