Friday’s festivities will feature a Pro Playoff, with a mix of real-life drivers, Sim Pro’s, and influencers facing off against each other. Saturday will also include open rig sessions to conclude the event.


The competitors will race on Assetto Corsa Competizione at Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s 2.439 miles, 14-turn Road Course layout. Drivers will utilize Fanatec cockpits, bases, wheels and pedals powered by ASUS machines, with open setup.


The event will feature a plethora of talent from both the sim-racing and real racing world, including highly experienced drivers showing off their skills on a global stage, as series Champions, proven race winners and podium sitters will be given the spotlight to showcase their strengths and competitive spirit.
