About the European Digital Motorsports Cup (EDMC)
The EDMC will bring the best of online and offline racers together battling for their national teams. It is an international collaboration between several national motorsport organisations including Motorsport Ireland, the Danish Automobile Sports Federation, Deutscher Motor Sport Bund e.V., Polish Automobile and Motorcycle Federation and The Swedish Automobile Sports Federation.
The five national motorsport associations have chosen, during a tender process, the Danish promoter Esport Racing to arrange this first edition of the EDMC. This event offers the champions of the respective national digital motorsport championships throughout Europe the opportunity to represent themselves and their countries. The drivers for this event are nominated exclusively by their national federation.
This new collaboration aims to highlight Digital Motorsport as a new and exciting, professionally run genre of our sport with equal opportunities and low barriers to entry.The best Digital Motorsport Drivers and Pro Motorsport Drivers will be on the same virtual starting grid in a ‘Nations Cup’ which will be broadcast live on the international stage.
Each ASN can nominate a maximum of 6 teams of 2 drivers. These teams will compete in a 90-minute race on the iRacing simulation platform, driving the Dallara LMP2 car on 14 March 2021. In addition to the organising nations, Norway and Iceland will also be competing in the inaugural European Digital Motorsport Cup.
