ButtKicker have returned for the 3rd year in a row supporting Britcar’s esports venture. Starting their support with the 2021 E-Series which was a championship of races mirroring the real life version of the Britcar Endurance Championship (now the British Endurance Championship) the winners of the ButtKicker Gamer systems in that inaugural year were Tony Draper and Luke Whitehead. In the second year of ButtKicker support, Britcar went back to its roots by running the Motorsport UK backed ButtKicker Britcar 24 hours. This was Motorsport UK’s flagship esports community event and was used as one of their launch events for the virtual side of Motorsport UK’s activities in the motor racing world. With the race being run on the iRacing platform and streamed by Racespot.tv it was a huge success with a big grid and a great atmosphere amongst the crews taking part.
