Following seven sim racing tournaments and multiple search committees, the 12 drivers heading to the first Prodigy Week have been locked in.
The Prodigy Racing League has seen tournaments take place on simulation platforms such as iRacing, RaceRoom and rFactor 2 plus the mobile title Street Kart Racing. Each tournament winner received a Prodigy Pass, which is an invite and expenses for an in-person motorsport boot camp.
There have also been search committees where the likes of Random Callsign, Bobby Labonte, Aarava and Max Papis have chosen drivers who competed in the tournaments but didn’t quite clinch the victory.
The 12 drivers, now selected, will head to Atlanta Motorsports Park for a three-day academy which will include media training, fitness tests and driving Radical SR1s around the circuit.
This is just the inaugural Prodigy Week, with a second expected in 2024. Then, the best competitors from both sessions will be selected for a full season of real-world racing next year in the aforementioned British sports cars.
Prodigy Week 2023 can be watched live on the competition’s YouTube channel and will run from 30th October to 1st November.
