iRacing Rallycross All-Star Invitational to Return April 20

Top-tier rallycross action returns to iRacing social media later this month, as the iRacing Rallycross All-Star Invitational presented by Yokohama gears up for four events starting on April 20. Much like last year’s iRX World Championship, events will start with dozens of real-world pros and celebrities facing off, while a second standalone race featuring top iRX World Championship drivers and the top performers at each track in community Time Attack sessions.

The schedule features an international mix of tracks that also highlights all three of iRacing’s newest layouts. Both divisions will open the season at Brands Hatch Circuit and conclude it at Charlotte Motor Speedway, while the May events will diverge from one another to highlight the tracks most popular among both driver backgrounds. Races will be run as follows:

  • April 20: Brands Hatch Circuit (both divisions)
  • May 4: Daytona International Speedway (real pro)/Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (sim pro)
  • May 11: Sonoma Raceway (real pro)/Atlanta Motor Speedway (sim pro)
  • June 1: Charlotte Motor Speedway (both divisions)

A selected list of drivers expected to compete in at least one iRX All-Star Invitational presented by Yokohama round includes the following names, with more to be confirmed closer to each event:

  • Andreas Bakkerud, FIA World Rallycross race winner and series runner-up
  • Ron Capps, NHRA Funny Car champion
