Racing Prodigy announced on Wednesday (9th August) that the fourth round of the first season of the Prodigy Racing League will commence on 21st August on the RaceRoom Racing Experience PC simulation platform.
This will mark the first tournament of the series to take place on the RaceRoom title, the first three rounds taking place on the iRacing PC sim platform (Round 1, GR86 and Round 3, FF1600) and the Street Kart Racing mobile app (Round 2).
The first two rounds were won by Gustavo Ariel of Brazil in the iRacing GR86 Cup and Laurens Beerten of Belgium, the Street Kart Racing Mobile winner of the second round. The third round, also on iRacing, is still underway although the qualifying portion just ended 6th August.
RaceRoom competitors will utilize the Tatuus F4 at the Hockenheimring starting on the 21st, the first stage of qualifying lasting through the 3rd of September. Semi-final races will commence on the 9th of September with the final taking place on the 10th, the winner earning the next available Prodigy Pass.
“RaceRoom’s passion for finding and building talent made our partnering with Racing Prodigy a no-brainer,” said Holger Stangl, Head of Business Development at RaceRoom. “Through our commitment to realism and accuracy in simulation, we have seen first-hand the impact RaceRoom has had in helping virtual racers prepare and make the leap into being real-world drivers, with one of our players currently racing in the real DTM. We look forward to watching the PRL RaceRoom Tatuus F4 Cup winner take that next step at Prodigy Week.”
RaceRoom is a free-to-play simulation with loads of paid content. That latter note includes both the Tatuus F4 and the Hockenheimring, but the pricing is fairly competitive, with the car around $3 and the track around $5.
