Subaru of America, the US-based distributor of Subaru brand vehicles, has partnered with iRacing, the leader in PC simulator racing, and become the title sponsor of Subaru iRX All-Star Invitational rallycross series.
A world-class field of drivers from rally, rallycross, Indycar, NASCAR, motocross, Formula Drift and more will compete alongside esports pros in a six-round championship series held entirely online and kicking off April 10.
Subaru will field a three-car lineup featuring the team’s full-time stage rally drivers: five-time national rally champion and action sports icon Travis Pastrana, and mountain bike legend and rising rally talent Brandon Semenuk. They will be joined by four-time U.S. rallycross champion Scott Speed.
“With so many people staying at home and missing racing, now is the perfect time to try new things in esports. For this series we’re going to bring together some of the biggest names from different types of racing and put them on virtual rallycross tracks with dirt, tarmac and jumps. It’s going to be a blast, and I can’t wait to see what happens!” Pastrana said.
Subaru iRX All-Star Invitational events will begin at 6 pm EST/3 pm PST each Friday and will be streamed across iRacing’s social media platforms. Fans can also watch via live streaming simulcasts on the Subaru Motorsports USA Facebook page and the pages of other competitors, teams and sponsors.
