The emergency measures triggered by the coronavirus are affecting sports events on a global scale and have forced us to review the schedules, we expect the actual competition to resume in end of June and propose to keep the championship staying in China only.
When the spread of the coronavirus requests us to keep our distance to stay safe, FRD decided to launch the Formula Renault AsiaCup SIM Racing Championship during these times of social separation, to keep drivers engaged until it’s possible to return to the racetracks again.
The Formula Renault AsiaCup SIM Racing Championship will contain 3 events, welcomes series drivers, non-series drivers, race fans and friends to participate. An opening race will be scheduled on May 16 while a test day will be arranged on April 25 to make sure all competitors can login to our server.
