The tracks are empty and motorsport, like the world, has stopped. Teams and drivers of every real world racing championship in these weeks spend often their time on the simulators they have at home, or more simply to play online with each other. In such an hard time for everyone Dallara Automobili announced a new virtual competition to keep the passion for racing alive: the Dallara Esports Championship 2020 powered by AK Esports and based on the popular Assetto Corsa sim-game developed by Kunos Simulazioni.
