It’s one of our most popular and exciting series, showcasing the diverse talent of the Sim Racing World – and today we are excited to announce that the More Female Racers Series returns! Before we dive deeper into Season 4, let’s take a look at what’s in store for this edition of the highly diverse and accessible Assetto Corsa Competizione series.
A short look to the past: Season 3 Overview
The third instalment of the More Female Racers championship saw drivers using the Lamborghini Super Trofeo – a challenging car that had even the best on the grid making errors. With four classes to facilitate multiple skill levels, we had another season of incredible racing.
After six rounds of action, it was Aloo Gobi and Jens Kaiser from Map1 Racing who would leave with their first More Female Racers championship crown! After being moved up to Pro Class from Silver mid Season 2, they certainly made an impression. In Silver though, the competition only got fiercer. NSN x Wild Things Racing and Turn1 – Diablo took it right down to the wire, with the prior emerging on top – Denise Pope and Rob Taplin taking their first championship crown, too.
With another two more classes with even more drivers on the rise, Pro-AM and AM also saw their fair share of action. The duos saw many ups and downs, but leaving the season victorious would be Team Cake – Cupcakes and Team Cake – Angel Cake. Season 4 should be even more competitive, as we welcome new drivers to race alongside series’ veterans in the battle to rise to the top.
Save the Date: The More Female Racers Season 4 Calendar
The last season of More Females Racers saw the biggest calendar yet – 5 set races with the finale held at a public-voted circuit. Not only was it bigger than ever, but it was also better than ever, as we ventured to famous circuits such as Circuit Spa-Francorchamps and Autodromo Nazionale di Monza. For this season, that’s not going to change, so let’s take a look at where we are headed:
Round 1 – Monza – 11th October
Round 2 – Spa – 25th October
Round 3 – Imola – 8th November
Round 4 – Silverstone – 22nd November
Round 5 – Zolder – 6th December
Round 6 – Public Voted Track – 20th December
Once again, we are going for a six-round calendar with a spicy public-voted race to round out the championship. Imola and Silverstone will be returning to the series after their prior appearances two seasons ago and Monza, Spa and Zolder carry over from Season 3 into Season 4.
More Female Racers Season 4 Race Format
In Season 3, a new format debuted of a “3-stint race”, allowing for the female drivers a second stint in the car and also giving us more drama at the Pit-Stops. We’re delighted to announce that this format, alongside the 60-minute race length, will also stay the same, meaning there isn’t anything timing-wise you may need to adapt to going into the new season.
What has changed, however, is that in Every season of More Female Racers we have utilised a new car, and that means it’s time to find out what we have in store! As a quick refresher, Season 1 saw drivers in GT4s, Season 2 in GT3s of free choice and, of course, Season 3 the Lamborghini Super Trofeo.
For Season 4, the mandatory car will be none other than the Fiorano born Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo (And Non-Evo). The Ferrari is a brilliant all-around car, which shouldn’t cause our drivers too many issues, with the Balance of Performance (BoP) equalising the talent pool of the series.
