The annual Legion of Racers (LOR) online league championship is back once again and will be held over three weeks in June 2022.
On 24th May, LOR announced that the LOR Asia Championship 2022 Presented by Tarmac Works will run on Assetto Corsa Competizione and will see drivers compete in the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3.
The collaboration between Tarmac Works and LOR will see the model cars company launch a limited edition Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 Moon Equipped x Tarmac Works – Legion of Racers 1/64 Scale model car and a special edition t-shirt.
The paraphernalia will be available for pre-order in the coming days.
This is the fifth year of the online league, which has been organized by LOR since 2018, with the organizers limiting the number of participants to 45 drivers.
Tarmac Works will also return as the title sponsor of the online league after a successful partnership in 2021.
“We are very excited to be the title sponsor for the LOR online league once again this year. They have always been wonderful to work with and we very much appreciate their efforts in developing talented drivers in Asia and promoting sim racing in the region, “said Tarmac Works founder Felix Kwong.
“This year we are collaborating again with the well known brand Mooneyes from Japan to develop the model car and t-shirt which I’m stoked about.”
This year, sim racers will have to undergo a 20-minute sprint race format which will see participants go flat out till the end with no pit stops, which will make for an exhilarating race and push to the finish.
LOR also added that the championship will have three categories - Pro, Am and Nations Cup.
To keep the championship competitive, the competition will be limited to 45 Drivers, with 20 given to Pro Drivers and 25 to Am Drivers.
The classification of the drivers will be determined by the organizers.
Apart from Tarmac Works, LOR have also signed up the following partners for the annual series - Logitech G, Prism+, Aftershock, Motul, Monster Energy, Next Level Racing, Pik Nik, and 9tro – which will be contributing to a prize pool of SGD5500 in addition to the product prizes which will be shared among the top 5 winners from both the Pro and Am Category.
LOR have also confirmed TikTok once again as the Official Broadcasting partner for the league with all races to be livestreamed on the platform.
“It’s that time of the year again that we are hosting our annual Online Championship on Assetto Corsa Competizione,” said LOR co-founder Melvin Moh.
“We have decided to go on a one-make race format as we feel this will create a more equal playing field with everyone driving the same car and I’m looking forward to an exciting championship,” he added.
“A big thank you also to all the partners and sponsors for supporting this championship.”
