As most of you already know, after the renaming of the FIA F4 in iRacing, a collaboration was established between the International Automobile Federation and the simulator, thus taking advantage of the opportunity to get a full year of iRacing for free. Today, a new eSports world championship with this very vehicle has been announced. The official note is below:

The FIA and iRacing are pleased to announce the creation of the FIA F4 Esports Global Championship, which will commence its inaugural season this September. The all-new, pro-level Esports series is the latest step in the successful partnership between the two parties around the Formula 4 platform. The four-event, eight-round series will see drivers from around the world battle for a $25,000 prize pool. Races will be broadcast live across iRacing social media channels.

Since the relationship between iRacing and the FIA began in mid-2023, tens of thousands of drivers have taken to the track in the virtual F4, honing their skills as they begin to work their way into real-world racing. Series like the FIA F4 Regional Tours, which focus on tracks within specific regions of the world, provide racers with a sim experience that reflects the start of a racer’s real-world journey. In addition, iRacing has worked with dozens of FIA national sporting authorities (ASNs) to provide account support to sim racing newcomers around the world, as well as helping to create numerous national championship series.

Drivers will be able to qualify for the FIA F4 Esports Global Championship by running in iRacing’s FIA F4 Regional Tour series during 2024 Season 3, which kicks off in mid-June. The top 10 eligible drivers in championship standings across each of the Regional Tour series will be invited to compete in the Global Championship. In order to be eligible for an invitation to the Global Championship, drivers must reside within the respective region for which they qualify, ensuring a truly global championship field.

Doubleheader events have been scheduled for September 14, September 28, October 12, and November 2, with the first race session opening at 18:30 GMT. Track selections for each event will be announced 24 hours prior to the race, forcing drivers to adapt quickly to each course. Drivers will also compete with fixed setups, ensuring an equal playing field for all.

See you competing!
