Touring Car Racing At It’s Best 

iRacing TCR League

After several great seasons of the BSRTC Pro Series, 2019 saw a rebrand for the premier touring car championship on iRacing, but the Apex Racing League Touring Car Championship has continued to produce some of the best action on Apex Racing TV, with the help of the new Audi RS3 LMS TCR.

The series has maintained its entertainment-ensuring format with three twenty minute races per meeting. With the second and third races being reverse grids, and a field of 50+ drivers, the series is far more about how drivers can progress up through the grid and stay out of trouble, than out right pace, although several competitors have established themselves as some of the fastest on iRacing in a variety of cars. With many of the drivers being part of the championship for several years, the series is unique with established rivalries and a rich history, much of which Adam Bath and Andrew Woodhouse have witnessed since the inception of Apex Racing TV.

First season in the Audi TCR car and it was a blast, Kia racing was good but the wheel to wheel action in the Audi is on another level. Good racing throughout the field and the mixture of Pro and Am means you really have someone to race at all times.

Alex SimpsonApex Racing Team Pro Driver

The ARLTC is what got me hooked on iRacing. Big grids & 3 short races make every race a different challenge. Plus the reverse grid races means everyone has a chance to finish on the podium.

George SimmonsApex Racing Team Pro Driver

I’ve been involved in this league for over 6 years now which speaks for itself. There is no better place on iRacing to have quality, competitive, hard racing every week.
