“Real Racers Never Quit” returns, including Verstappen and van Gisbergen

Following the cancellation of the 2023 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, which should have been held at the Imola Circuit this weekend but couldn’t take place due to catastrophic flooding, Team Redline has returned to a strategy that has paid off as the world shut down at the year 2020.

Under the direction of two-time Formula 1 World Champion Max Verstappen, who is himself an active Team Redline driver, “Real Racers Never Quit” is a sim racing event in which numerous drivers from all areas of motorsport take part will participate. The squad also features top drivers from the real and simulated world.

Once a six-event miniseries during the 2020 pandemic lockdown, Real Racers Never Quit ran multiple races on iRacing. Verstappen won that overall title before the world returned to some sort of normalcy, winning half of all races that inaugural season. It doesn’t seem like this will be another full-fledged series, but rather a day of keeping the race going by virtual means.

The race will be streamed live on the Team Redline Twitch channel on Sunday (May 21) from 3:30pm BST (2:30pm BST / 9:30am ET) and will be hosted and presented by Luke Crane. What the drivers will line up, such as cars and tracks (although Imola is a good guess given the Italian flag emojis), hasn’t been announced at this time.
