Australia and UK's motorsport governing bodies set to race each other virtually

Motorsport Australia will take on Motorsport UK in an invitation racing esports event using Assetto Corsa Competizione on 14th August.

It’s Motorsport Australia vs Motorsport UK this weekend, as the two motorsport organisations duke it out in an esports race utilising Assetto Corsa Competizione.

Billed as the “esports version of the Ashes” by chief organiser Motorsport Australia, the live event will see two races with each competitor in identical McLaren 720S GT3s – apart from the livery, with two on display to showcase each nation competing.

Bathurst’s Mount Panorama will hold the first race, with Kent’s Brands Hatch the second. A practice session will be followed by qualifying and then a race. 20 drivers will take part, 10 for each motorsport organisation.

On the UK side, Kieran Prendergast won the Silver Class of the Hungarian GT World Challenge Europe Esports round in July. Oh, and there’s the small matter of Traxion.GG journalist Ross McGregor.

No pressure, Ross. It’s not like there are the hopes of the nation on your shoulders or anything…
