Formula 1 racers Max Verstappen and Lando Norris will
compete for Team Redline at the upcoming virtual Le Mans 24 Hours.
Prolific sim racers Verstappen and Norris have previously
teamed up in the virtual world for Redline, which is one of the oldest and most
successful esports operations.
They will share the LMP2 specification No. 20 ORECA 07 entry with sim racers Atze Kerkhof and Greger Huttu.
The virtual event on the rFactor2 platform will take place across
24 hours on June 13/14, when the real-world version should have taken place.
Event organisers ACO remain optimistic that the postponed 24-hour
endurance race will be able to take place on September 19/20.
Verstappen and Norris are the first current Formula 1
drivers confirmed to participate in the event.
Earlier this week it was revealed that former Ferrari racers
Felipe Massa and Giancarlo Fisichella will join a team that is being fielded by
Princess Charlene of Monaco.
