Jason Holden-Jones, Sim Race SAs League Co-ordinator, has confirmed the plans for the new 2021.1 sim racing season. The season will kick off on 11 January 2021 and end on 23 June 2021. Sim Race SA has selected The Grace Factory as it’s charity to focus on for the new season.
The 2021.1 season will see the exciting addition of the SA simLegends Series, a championship based on classic GT car racing. After a record breaking 2020.2 season that saw 170+ entrants and almost R30 000 raised for charity, the SA simGT Series, SA simGP Series and a tweaked SA simTC Series will continue into the new season.
The new season will also see the continuation of the SA simRally Series, a cross-platform (PC, XBOX, PS4) championship using Dirt Rally 2.0, and SA simTrackDay using Assetto Corsa and various ‘open world’ maps for a more relaxed ‘chill and drive’ experience.
Sim Race SA is thrilled to announce a bolstered Management Team for 2021.1 and beyond, Sas van der Westhuizen and Nick Hodgson join Jason Holden-Jones, Ryan Hill and Alan Paterson to ensure a quick-responding smooth running league.
