    $500 Prize Panoz Race-rFactor [30-04-2007 | JZ | Comments (0) ]
    NEW YORK, The Pro Sim Racing League™ (P.S.R.L) is proud to announce the Birmingham 125, presented by Gold Coast Media Solutions. The Birmingham 125 is a multi-stage online racing tournament that culminates in a 125-mile race around the Birmingham, Alabama circuit. The event will give amateur sim racers from around the globe an opportunity to compete for their share of the $500 prize pool and a spot in one of the Pro Sim Racing League’s premiere divisions. This event will be run with the Panoz Esperante™ ALMS GT2 purpose-built racecar and will be broadcast live on the web May 5, 2007 at ProSimRacing.com.

    The Pro Sim Racing League World Championship Series is where the world of online sim racing comes together. Featuring several types of racing and race formats, there is something for everyone at the P.S.R.L. From free daily organized races to large cash prize paying tournaments, the P.S.R.L. aims to fill the void in your sim racing experience. Seasoned league veterans and novice first-time racers alike will find competition that suits their preference. Currently all events are run on the award-winning rFactor™ race simulator software, developed by Image Space Inc. (ISI). Drivers compete using personal computers equipped with a racing wheel, pedals and optional shifter.

    The Panoz Esperante ALMS GT2 is a purpose-built racecar that has proven its worth on the track. Recently, Image Space, Inc. announced a partnership with Panoz in bringing this car to its groundbreaking computer-driving simulator. A comprehensive lineup of officially licensed Panoz cars will be made available free of charge to all owners of the rFactor driving simulator on Tuesday, April 17.

    “"By acquiring the Esperante license, we’re able to bring rFactor players the thrilling experience of driving this acclaimed auto with a level of accuracy not found anywhere else," said Gjon Camaj, Vice President of Product Development at ISI.

    Georgia-based Panoz has been building high-performance, customizable cars since 1989. The company manufactures its flagship line of Esperante sports and race cars for domestic and international markets.”*

    The P.S.R.L. is a race organization committed to advancing driver development through simulator-based racing. Drivers are required to earn racing licenses before being eligible for competition. The P.S.R.L monitors every race to ensure accuracy and safeguards against software manipulation and collusion. Races are also protected by the RELAY anti-cheat system, which detects and removes any driver who attempts to gain an unfair advantage. RELAY is one of many sophisticated techniques the P.S.R.L. employs to ensure fair competition.

    In addition to all the racing, the PSRL runs a 24-hour, 365 days-a-year rFactor internet TV channel. This channel will be used to broadcast live large events, a weekly variety show called “The rFactor Report” and daily server racing, all in a friendly chat room atmosphere. Over the coming months we will be adding additional programming to our lineup as well. For information on putting together a show for broadcast or advertising with PSRL TV please contact producer@prosimracing.com.

    Qualification attempts for amateur drivers are permitted throughout the season. Drivers must earn either an A, B or C class license to be able to compete in one of the professional series. For more information on the P.S.R.L. or the Birmingham 125 visit www.ProSimRacing.com.
