Get ready for some incredible racing action this year, as we announce the latest season of the Le Mans Virtual starting this September 17th with a brand-new track to rFactor 2 – the Bahrain International Circuit!
That’s right, following an incredibly successful year in 2021, Motorsport Games, the ACO and rFactor 2 are back again for another season of the premier endurance racing online competition, mixing real world teams and drivers with elite esport stars of today, racing together over a five round campaign that ends in the now famous Le Mans 24 Hours Virtual over the weekend of January 14th and 15th next year – a welcome return to the toughest endurance racing series in the world.

This season, the Le Mans Virtual Series will run with a prize fund of US $250,000 and is set to feature both the LMP2 Oreca 07, and the full roster of GTE cars available within rFactor 2. Mixing the world of real and virtual is one of the key points of interest within this series, and as such, in order to accommodate the often packed schedule of our real world drivers, for the 2022/23 season a change in the rules no means that teams must field at least one professional driver in their car during an event this season, rather than having to run the full campaign as was the case in previous iterations of the championship.
The championship will again feature a five round campaign, with a brand-new track making its esports debut for round one, in the form of the Bahrain 8 Hours on September 17th…
