Historically, the cost of pursuing a career in motorsports has been so daunting that 99%+ of people never realize the opportunity or even dare dream of becoming a professional racer. iRacing have launched the Prodigy Racing League™ (PRL™), the world’s first e2Real™ sports league. The racing league has been built to make motorsports more accessible using esports as the pathway to racing cars on real tracks. This greatly reduces the financial barriers to pursuing a career in motorsports, levelling the playing field and enabling millions to pursue their dreams.
Prodigy Racing League participants will compete in esports racing tournaments among the four celebrated gaming titles across 12 tournaments from June through October. Fifteen of the top performers will be awarded a Prodigy Pass™, the “golden ticket of motorsports,” to compete in real Radical SR1 race cars at Prodigy Week™. Following the first Prodigy Week, Racing Prodigy plans to host a second Prodigy Week in early 2024 with an additional 35 Prodigy Pass winners, creating a pool of 50 of the world’s most talented drivers from which PRL teams will draft. The plan is for those drafted to receive a paid contract to compete in PRL’s first real-world racing series in the United States, to be launched in 2024.
