WATCH: Le Mans Virtual Series Cup, Round 1, Sebring, LIVE

As if the hype surrounding the Le Mans Virtual Series wasn’t enough, its sister series, the Le Mans Virtual Cup, also kicks off live on the Traxion.GG YouTube channel this Friday.

The Le Mans Virtual Cup (LMVC) is an esports series open to anyone with a copy of rFactor 2 and a taste for competitive and well-organized endurance racing.

With the sim’s new-for-2022 competition system, participants will battle it out for two spots alongside the likes of Max Verstappen, James Baldwin and some of the world’s most famous racing teams as part of the 2023 Virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The starting grid will be determined by pre-event qualifying, with top splits made up of 30 of the world’s fastest virtual sports car drivers. All competitors will use identical Ligier JS P320 LMP3 cars throughout the season, with 45-minute races punctuated by a mandatory pit stop.

The points standings from three LMVC events set the grid for a pivotal fourth round at Le Mans where our 2022 LMVC winners will be crowned. Last season’s award winners Luca D’Amelio and Christopher Högfeldt joined Juan Pablo and Sebastian Montoya in the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual in the Le Mans Virtual Series (LMVS) Guest Car.

No doubt you’ve heard some pretty interesting stories from the ex-Formula 1 and IndyCar driver!
