VCO esports have opened up the track vote for the final time in the ERL Spring Cup, and this time it’s another pair of incredible Italian classics that are open to the public to decide which venue the series visits. The battleground will either be the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari, otherwise referred to as Imola. Whilst Imola will always be associated with the tragic events of 1994, racing dates back to the early 1950s, with both two and four wheels enjoying the twists, turns and undulations of Imola.
The opposition in the VCO vote is the temple of speed, the Autodromo Nazionale Monza has been the home of Italian racing since 1922, and has had many alterations over its long lifetime, to keep the fast and flowing circuit in use by almost everything with an engine.
Head over to the VCO socials to cast your vote before tonight’s race.
VCO aren’t the only ones allowing the fans to decide where the racing will continue, as The Sim Grid will be hosting the Coach Dave Time Attack finale on the 26th of May at one of three circuits. The above mentioned Monza is one of their options, this time up against a pair of British contenders.
Initially used for cyclists and runners, Brands Hatch has been the site of motor racing since 1950, particularly for motorcycles. Since then, the Kent-based track has hosted all kinds of motorsport, right up to Formula One. F1 may have turned away from Brands Hatch, but under Johnathon Palmers MSV ownership, the track continues to provide amazing racing to all who venture there
From the south to the north, the second British entry in the Coach Dave Time Attack vote is Oulton Park in Cheshire. The site used to be a manor house until it was destroyed in a fire in 1926 and finished off entirely during World War II as the site had been repurposed by the American army. After the war, many former army airfields were used for racing, such as Silverstone, Goodwood and Thruxton, but whereas those tracks were all flat, Oulton Park flowed with the landscape, and thus provided a very different venue to go racing.
