We are getting closer and closer to the end of the year, but 2022 still has plenty of racing action to offer! The month of November at SimGrid will be no different from the previous ten. All eyes will be on More Female Racers and its two scheduled rounds that will lead us to the heart of the championship. 

As we recently reached an impressive number of 200 hosts on our platform, we will also take a look at some of the most interesting events offered by the communities.

More Female Racers Season 5

As the long-awaited first round now belongs to the past, in November competition will heat up in More Female Racers Season 5 powered by Mercedes-AMG. On Monday the 7th Brands Hatch will host round 2 of the series. The track for the third racing evening (Monday 21) is yet to be decided. In case you are not familiar with the rules of the championship, during every round there is a public poll to pick the next race venue, so make sure to tune in on YouTube to cast your vote!

In Pro class, Aloo Gobi will try to bounce back and put her wheels ahead of Aenore Rose, after coming so close in round 1. Sara Dove, Delilah Hazel and Victoria Thomson will try to have their say too. The front pack in Silver class (Mia Swensen is the current leader) promises some tense fights once again. In Am Azzy Iredale and Cammie Sturch stole the show at the Nurburgring and will try to repeat themselves in the upcoming rounds.

BBR 24H Charity Event

In 2022 we have seen charity events getting more and more popular. A true example of the power of sim racing and its ever-growing community. This time around, it is Big Brain Racing’s turn to host one of these events, with the “24 Hours at the Brickyard”. All the money raised will be donated to fight Muscular Dystrophy. 

The race is scheduled for next year’s 25th of February, but November is a crucial month as sign-ups are now officially open. While in these kinds of events racing for prizes might not be a priority, Big Brain Racing set a £180 prize pool. Every member of the winning car will also get a pair of racing gloves. More in-depth details can be found on their dedicated page.
