Race #2: Madison, Indiana

The 2020 H1 Unlimited E-League continues with the second race of the season, contesting the Gold Cup from Madison, Indiana. The race is scheduled for 12:00PM noon on Saturday, June 6th and will be streamed to the H1 Unlimited Facebook, YouTube and Twitch channels.

Twelve HydroSim drivers have been selected by H1 Unlimited teams to represent their virtual racing teams. Drivers race virtual replicas of H1 Unlimited Hydroplanes on digital replicas of H1 Unlimited’s greatest courses. Each E-League race will follow the traditional H1 Unlimited racing format and drivers will accumulate points throughout the season in pursuit of the H1 Unlimited E-League Championship. Each season will be conducted during the H1 Unlimited offseason with dates to be announced.

The E-League races will be conducted on the HydroSim racing software developed by Scott Przybylski from San Diego, California.
