Yesterday evening we hosted our second live race, with a live YouTube feed for fans and those not able to drive, for our eMotorsports series initiative as part of our Diversionary Therapy Program. This was race 2, from Tsukuba Circuit, of a 6 race series on the iRacing platform.
Our aim is to continue to keep beneficiaries engaged through some form of Motorsport in these difficult times, either through driving/racing or as a spectator.
We are thrilled to report that this first YouTube live streamed event was a success after some minor early teething dificulties, with 14 drivers entered and a good group of fans catching the racing action.
For those not driving we utilize YouTube to provide a live moderated broadcast that allows beneficiaries, supporters and fans to watch and interact on chat or ask questions about programs and activities.
Everyone was entertained to a 30 minute open practice, a 10 minute qualifying session and a 53 lap / 60 minute race.
Congratulations to Jacob Williams for finishing P1. Everyone raced clean and respectful throughout the event. Results from Qualifying and Race are attached.
Going forward we invite any beneficiaries, drivers and supporters who want to get involved and give back, to contact Jason Leach at Jason.Leach@operationmotorsport.org
Next race is June 16 at
