F1 2021 Racing Evenings

The time has come for yet another Formula 1 racing title release, as EA Games together with Codemasters launched the new F1 2021 in 15th of July. After we tried it out, it was an easy decision to start racing the F1 2021 in the OP Racing Evenings on Wednesdays.

The OverPower Racing Evenings are hosted racing sessions in the OP Racing Facility. Racers can either come to our factory and choose one of the seven premium simulators available or join the race online with their own simulators. Races will take approximately two hours, the format being 60min free practice, one shot qualification run and 50% race with one mandatory pit-stop.

Interested in joining the race from your home? Join to OP Discord and drop Olli a message and we’ll sort you out!

Events

The event business has been in tough place for the past two years, but luckily the situation has gotten under control. This means we can pack our bags and go see people! Sweet!!

In August, there’ll be two major events taking place where we host sim racing action. First will be Simerock, a rock festival held in Rovaniemi from 20th to 22nd of August. The local three-day festival will see two premium OP rigs available for rockers to race.

The second event is the weekend after where we join the legendary Porsche Festival 2021 in Alastaro, Finland. The super weekend is one of the highlights of the Porsche drivers, where the Porsche Club Finland celebrates their 50th anniversary! Congratulations!
