  • How Sim Racing Saved the 2020 Spring Racing Season

    Virtual Race Series in Monaco - From F1 to Gran Turismo and Formula E

    During the early months of COVID-19, all races were cancelled and SIM racing became an exciting platform to not only maintain the interest of fans, but also entertain both the fans and drivers alike!

    Formula 1 and other racing series organized their own events, sparking creative and engaging challenges between pro athletes from a cross section of racing disciplines and diverse sports, who competed with each other through innovative gaming.

    MeSF organised its own event to support the cancelled Monaco Grand Prix weekend 2020, featuring drivers from the Principality including Monaco’s very own F1 and F3 racing brothers, Charles and Arthur Leclerc.


Session 2

17:00 - 18:00 CET
