The entry list for the 500 Miles of Sebring, fourth round of the 2022-23 Le Mans Virtual Series – the global, elite endurance esports series and a joint venture between Motorsport Games Inc. (NASDAQ: MSGM) (“Motorsport Games”) and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (“ACO”) – has today been revealed. With a full field of 40 cars, the complete roster for the 500 Mile-event (approximately 4 hours) can be found HERE.  The race will take place on Saturday, December 3 and is the final round before the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual in January.


The list features standout names from the real world of motorsport, including Team Redline’s two-time Formula One World Champion Max Verstappen, former F1 and current INDYCAR star Romain Grosjean and W Series and sportscar racing’s Beitske Visser for Mahle Racing Team, plus many more representing the most prestigious automotive manufacturers in the world. They are joined by elite esports squads from around the globe, and gaming stars such as Jeffrey Rietveld (Team Redline), Josh Rogers and Tommy Østgaard from Porsche Coanda Esports, and Lorenzo Arisi from Ferrari’s SIM Maranello entry.


Many teams are taking the opportunity to field pro drivers who will use the 500 Miles of Sebring as a prologue for Le Mans, giving them an opportunity to re-familiarise themselves with the fFactor2 platform and the increasingly competitive entrants. With just one round to go before the finale of the Le Mans Virtual Series, the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual (January 14-15), Team Redline leads the LMP Points classification from Floyd Vanwall Burst and BMW Team Redline heads Oracle Red Bull Racing in the GTE category’s points leader board. There is all to play for in each of the two categories and endurance esports laurels at stake together with the US$ 250 000 prize pool.





The race takes place on the technically tricky and virtually bumpy Sebring International Raceway, and full, uninterrupted coverage will begin from 12:30 pm (GMT / 7:30 am ET) on Saturday, December 3.  The Florida track is unmatched for its history, especially in endurance racing, and the passion it invokes in motorsport fans – real or virtual. Be sure that plenty of action will be in store!


Qualifying is on Friday, December 2, and all race action can be followed on the FIA WEC, Le Mans and TraxionGG’s YouTube channels, on, and on multiple social media channels.

The legendary Spa-Francorchamps track in Belgium has long been at the top of the “favourite” list for drivers throughout the world, and the 6 Hours of Spa – third round of the 2022-23 Le Mans Virtual Series – has enticed some big names to the entry list which is revealed HERE.


Two-time F1 World Champion Max Verstappen will compete in the #1 Team Redline LMP entry (Verstappen/Rietveld/Benecke) for the first time this season, and he will be joined by R8G Esports Team Owner and INDYCAR star Romain Grosjean who will be driving the #18 R8G Esports LMP car (Grosjean/Hemmingsen/Ozyildorim) on the increasingly-strong grid.


LMP Championship leaders Floyd Vanwall-Burst (Viscaal/Simončič/Pedersen) will be looking to stretch out its narrow 2-point advantage over Team Redline, while in the hotly-contested GTE category the Oracle Red Bull Racing team (Kasdorp/Siebel/Jordan) will be planning to put its disastrous Monza showing into the background and return its Porsche to its Bahrain-winning form.  BMW Team Redline and SF Velas Esports (Ferrari) are close behind and all the manufacturer-led teams will have their eye on victory.


The race takes place on the rFactor2 platform on the virtual, fast and technically challenging 4.35 mile/7km long Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and full, uninterrupted coverage will begin from 12:30 pm (GMT/13:30 CET) on Saturday, November 5.  Expect some fireworks, hot track action and maybe some rain…a probability at Spa in the real world, whatever the season!


A total of 40 cars will battle it out in two different classes – 24 in LMP, with all competitors using an ORECA 07 LMP2 model, and 16 in GTE with teams having a choice of Ferrari, BMW, Porsche and Aston Martin Vantage models.  Manufacturer support also comes to teams representing Alpine and Mercedes AMG.


Qualifying is on Friday, November 4, and all race action can be followed on the FIA WEC, Le Mans and TraxionGG’s YouTube channels, on, and on social multiple social media channels.
