Skip Barber Formula iRacing Series

 

Returning for the 2022 season, Skip Barber Racing School will be hosting the Skip Barber Formula iRacing Series, where drivers will compete over six weeks of action for the ultimate prize in motorsports: a fully funded seat in the real-world Skip Barber Formula Race Series.

The Formula iRacing Series features a weekly Hot Lap qualifier where drivers attempt to set the fastest laps to earn entry to the race. From there, the top 20 drivers of the week will compete in races where cumulative points will be earned based on finishing position.  Between qualifying and the race that week, drivers will have an opportunity to gain guidance from Skip Barber Racing School instructors in online test sessions. With over $500,000 in prizes at stake, the ultimate winner will earn a seat in the Skip Barber Formula Race Series!

Drivers will compete in the iRacing Formula iR-04, iRacing’s equivalent to the Skip Barber Formula Car at six tracks on the 2022 Skip Barber Formula Race Series schedule, including iRacing’s virtual versions of  VIRginia International Raceway, Watkins Glen International, Sebring International Raceway, and Road America, as well as tracks we currently operate our collection of racing programs including Laguna Seca. Through our continued partnership with iRacing, the world’s premier motorsports racing simulation, the weekly races will be broadcast on iRacing.com/live, the official home of iRacing live streaming coverage.

How Do I Enter?

Each round of the Formula iRacing Series will feature a Hot Lap Qualifier in iRacing. Entry fee each week is $20. The Top 20 Qualifiers each week will be invited to participate in that week’s race!

Hot Lap Qualifiers and the race will be hosted on iRacing.

Series Format

Each week, drivers will enter the Hot Lap Qualifier. The Top 20 drivers will be invited to enter the race. Between qualifying and the race, drivers are invited to join an open test session where Skip Barber Racing School instructors will be on hand to help drivers hone their race craft!
