We are pleased to announce that the next chapter of the PCA Sim Racing program will bring the racing activity to the Zone, and in turn, the Region level. This new grassroots initiative of the PCA Sim Racing program will allow more sim racing opportunities for PCA members in similar time zones to meet and compete against drivers that they may also see at real-life Zone or Region events.
To ensure reasonable numbers of participants initially, the 14 national Zones have been combined into five Groups having geographically similar areas and time zones. The first Zone Group events, including both eDE Driver Education and races, are being developed by the various PCA Sim Racing Zone Group Coordinators.
Zones & Regions will compete within their Group to crown Zone winners in each of the four PCA Sim Racing classes: PCA Challenge, PCA Sport, PCA Club, and PCA Pro.
Those Zone winners will then compete for the Zone Group Challenge Championship which will be two broadcasted races in Spring 2021.
There will also be an opportunity for those drivers who didn’t qualify for the Zone Group Challenge Championship to qualify through the Zone Group Challenge, which will be 4 broadcasted races at Watkins Glen, Sonoma, Road America, and Sebring.
The familiar nationally broadcast live race series will continue in 2021.
It starts with a new 5-race endurance series starting on January 15th, 2021, at the Daytona road course and continues with Series 6 in Spring 2021, featuring the iRacing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car.
Note that there will also be a Spring 2021 Series 6 and a Fall 2021 Series 7, which will feature the same form of racing that we have raced in prior PCA Sim Racing Series. These are independent of the Zone Group activities.
