After a successful debut event last summer that raised more than $57,000 for the cause, iRacing and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society will team up once again for a three-hour charity team racing event. iRacing presents the Peachtree Three Benefiting the National MS Society will take racers to Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta on Thursday, July 14, with donations accepted from now through the duration of the event at www.nationalMSsociety.org/iracing.
The Peachtree Three will feature the Chevrolet Corvette C8R GTE, Global Mazda MX-5 Cup car, and iRacing’s GT4 class all doing battle on the famous 12-turn, 2.54-mile Georgia road course. Competitors will have unlimited fast repairs to work with to ensure that all racers can make it to the finish line as they organize their own donations. The broadcast split, featuring iRacing executive producer Steve Myers, seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion crew chief Chad Knaus, and 2020 eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series champion Nick Ottinger, will kick off at 8PM ET (midnight GMT). Additional race splits will launch at 10:00 GMT, 18:00 GMT, and 3:00 GMT (July 15).
Because the Peachtree Three is designed to raise money for charity, a number of purchasable advantages will be made available to teams in exchange for donations to the National MS Society. Teams can issue a drive through penalty to another competitor for $350, while teams can call a caution (limit 2) for $500 and a caution with a wave around (limit 1) for $1,000.
The National MS Society focuses on finding a cure for multiple sclerosis while enabling those affected by MS to live fulfilling lives. Founded in 1946 by Sylvia Lawry, the organization has facilitated countless breakthroughs in MS research over more than 75 years of devoted fundraising and advocacy efforts. The National MS Society also provides resources and support to the millions of Americans with MS to counter its effects on their lives.
