Trans Am's Esports Championship seeks to future-proof the legendary road racing series
Motorsports is about the evolution of culture as much as it is the mechanical technology under the hood. A series' quest to stay relevant can be just as dramatic, and sometimes as tragic, as its drivers' battle for the trophy or title. A racing series must navigate a field of challengers from all angles of the sport; the concerns of racers and fans may influence its trajectory as much as the interests of its sponsors and track owners. Few series understand this multifaceted struggle better than Trans Am, which is now working with Torque eSports to build a co-series based on Assetto Corsa, a racing sim.
