iRacing and the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) are pleased to announce the addition of the SCCA Runoffs to iRacing’s Special Events schedule for the first time in 2022. Utilizing the Super Session model, drivers will have the opportunity to qualify for the iRacing SCCA Runoffs over the week of October 17-21, 2022, before the top qualifiers strap in over the course of a marathon eight-hour broadcast day on Saturday, October 22.
“The SCCA Runoffs are one of the most prestigious events in American road racing, and we’re excited to officially add them to the iRacing special event schedule in 2022,” said Kevin Bobbitt, Director of Marketing at iRacing. “Giving our racers another opportunity to compete in top-level virtual road racing, while offering them a completely different slate of cars from the norm to race with, is an incredible proposition, and we can’t wait to see who takes the victory across our largest special event vehicle lineup ever!
As in the real world, the iRacing SCCA Runoffs will be held at VIRginia International Raceway, and the eight competing classes will similarly be modeled after vehicles that take part in the Runoffs every year. Sessions in each class will be held once every four hours from Monday-Friday, with all drivers holding a D class road license or above eligible to race and earn their way into the Super Sessions. All races will be 35 minutes in length.
The eight competing classes, and their full schedule of Super Sessions coming on Saturday, October 22, are as follows. All Super Sessions will be broadcast in succession on iRacing social media channels:
|Time (ET)||Class Name||Vehicle(s)|
|10AM||Formula Vee||Formula Vee|
|11AM||Spec Racer Ford||Spec Racer Ford|
|12PM||Miata||Global Mazda MX-5 Cup|
|4PM||American Sedan||Ford Mustang FR500S|
|5PM||GT2||Touring Car vehicles|
The real-world SCCA Runoffs return to VIRginia International Raceway for the first time in three years on September 24-October 2, 2022, and will return there in 2023 as well. The history of the event dates back nearly six decades, and serves as the SCCA’s national championship weekend for the top amateur road racers in America.
