Touring Car Racing At It’s Best 

ARL Touring Car Championship

The ARLTC championship is the premier touring car championship on iRacing, featuring the best Audi RS3 LMS drivers fighting for a highly regarded title over the course of 16 meetings.

The series has an 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. Several competitors have established themselves as some of the fastest on iRacing in the Audi RS3, accumulating 5k+ iRatings. Newcomers are welcome as well, with an amateur championship for those in the bottom half of the field, albeit these drivers often fight for race wins themselves. Many of the drivers have been a part of the championship for several years, meaning the series is unique with established rivalries and a rich history.

Kieran Harrison took a remarkable rookie title last season, surpassing Ross Balfour at the last round, who suffered technical difficulties. Former champions, Ross Macfarlane, Dave Baker and 6 time champion Wojciech Swirydowicz will be looking to repeat their former success. George Simmons, Jack Sedgwick and Matthew Turbull will look to take the title after coming close in recent seasons.

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.
