F1 Sim Racing’s highly anticipated calendar has been revealed. It’s official – we’re back racing!

The calendar announcement means one thing – F1 Sim Racing is back to wet your racing appetite! The season is far from over and we have 11 more rounds to go. A lot can happen in 11 rounds, everything is still to play for. 

We’ve announced the calendar, so we hear you wondering – how does it work? Let’s take a dive into the first fully LAN F1 Sim Racing World Championship in over 4 years! The action packed calendar delivers 12 rounds for the 2023 World Championship! Let’s dive into the calendar and see how it works and where you can watch all of the official F1 Sim Racing action.

Event 2 (April 10th > April 12th)

April 10th Will see us under the lights of Jeddah, a new track for the F1 Sim Racing World Championship and then ending the day in Spielberg at the home of the Red Bull’s, Austria. Last year, we saw sun, rain and more sun all in one race!

April 11th Brings us round’s 4 and 5. Starting at the iconic British track of Silverstone before wrapping up the day at the historic Spa Francorchamps, both tracks are known for their temperamental weather, this day alone could have us on the edge of our seats. 

April 12th Concludes Event 2, with a trip to the Netherlands for the famous Zandvoort track, known for it’s fast flowing corners. Then it’s time to grab your cowboy hats as we head to Austin, Texas. The two long straights of Circuit of the Americas (CoTA) have seen plenty of action throughout the years here at F1 Sim Racing. 

Event 3 (May 7th > May 9th)

May 7th Kicks off Event 3 with a bang as we head around the virtual tracks of Mexico City, Mexico and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Both of the tracks have seen plenty of action throughout the series. Especially Sao Paulo, which has moved forward from its usual position as the last race in the Calendar. This time, there’s no Marcel Kiefer to ride “gunner” for Frede Rassmussen’s title hopes. Can the Dane finish on the top step for the first time in his career this time around?

May 8th We should call this “new track day”. We head to the virtual, bright, entertaining track in Las Vegas, Nevada, before rounding off the day racing at yet another new track, Losail, Qatar! A desert track with high temperatures and lots of tyre deg.

May 9th The grand finale is here! Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi is where the real world concludes it’s racing – as do we in F1 Sim Racing in 2024. We’ve seen many, many, many magnificent battles take place here and a few title deciders over the years too! Yas Marina is one of the most impressive tracks on the calendar with long straights, fast flowing corners and chicanes – what else could we want as fans of the sport!

So, we’ve seen the tracks for each day of racing. But how does it work? We’ve got you covered! 

Race Day running order (GMT +2)

12pm: The Qualifying Show. We’ll see qualifying take place for both tracks on the nominated day. That’s 2 x full qualifying sessions on each day (apart from May 9th of course!). Watch as the drivers set their grid positions for the evening show. 

5pm: The Race Show. Drivers are now set to make the most from their qualifying positions which were set earlier in the day, as we head into the main event – the races! Each race will feature a distance of 50% of the real life duration. That’s two races – so double the action for our viewers! Only on May 9th will we see one race – Abu Dhabi – as we crown the F1 Sim Racing World Champion 2024! 

You’ve got the dates, the run of each day… Now where can you watch it all take place?
