Here’s How to Enter the Official Virtual Snowball Derby

If you think you have what it takes to become legendary and earn the title of Virtual Snowball Derby champion, entry forms are now available.

 

Entries are now being accepted for Speed51’s three official Virtual Snowball Derby events, including both fixed and open setup races for the first time.  Drivers in all three events will be able to claim bragging rights and purse money in what are expected to be highly competitive events.  

 

Over 110 drivers have already registered for one of the events, making these some of the toughest challenges in iRacing.

 

Time to register is limited for our first event, the fixed setup Virtual Snowball Derby.  In partnership with the Elite Racing League, fixed setup drivers will tackle 300 laps at the iRacing-scanned Five Flags Speedway using a setup provided by Maconi Setup Shop.  

 

Nearly 50 drivers have already registered to compete in the event.  Registration closes Saturday at Noon ET, ahead of Sunday’s qualifying session to set the field.  Drivers that make the field will race Sunday, November 29 for their shot at fame.  Drivers can register with their $20 entry fee by clicking here.
