Here we go again: 24h Virtual Le Mans. #NeverNotRacing

Let's imagine: It's January 2022, motorsport is on winter break, yet we're competing to defend the title at Le Mans. What may sound strange to die-hard motorsport fans is reality - virtual reality. The Porsche Esports Team is once again fighting for the title. When the real 24-hour race of Le Mans had to be postponed from its original date in June due to health and safety concerns, the organizers announced the virtual counterpart of the endurance classic without further ado. And with it, the first entry of the Porsche Esports Team.

Endurance racing in series format.

Let's take a brief look back: In 2020, the first edition of the virtual 24-hour race was held as a stand-alone event format. The significant innovation for the upcoming race is the currently running series format. Since September, the teams have been racing against each other in the Le Mans Virtual Series. In the process, the Porsche Esports Team duelled in Monza, in Spa-Francorchamps and on the Nordschleife. The fourth race of the season follows at the end of December: the 500 Miles of Sebring. The race at Le Mans on 15 and 16 January will be the finale of the season.

Be trackside with the team.

To take as many motorsports and simracing fans as possible to the race track, we will broadcast the race live - as we did in 2020. Let‘s take a look behind the scenes of the team before and during the race action. Furthermore, we’ll introduce you to the team behind the team and deliver 24 hours of simracing action. Preparations are already in full swing, and we will be announcing some highlights in the coming days and weeks. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the Porsche YouTube and Twitch channel in the new year.
