Erebus Academy Jr eSports Competition

The Erebus Academy has launched its own eSports competition, giving young sim racers the opportunity to compete in organised online racing much like the Supercar drivers are currently contesting.

This is the first eSports competition created by Erebus to attract young sim racers to go head-to-head across two circuits in two different cars. In a Time Trial shoot out, the top 3 from both age groups will receive prizes. The competition will be hosted on iRacing, the premier racing simulation platform in conjunction with Just Send It.
