Virtual2Reality: iRacer Alex Bergeron to run dirt sprint car in real life
We have found our first Virtual2Reality race car driver. We’ve been a fan of his for awhile now. We’re proud to announce Alex Bergeron from Alex Bergeron Racing to be our ambassador to transition talented racers from iRacing and propel their careers into real world race cars.
Alex is unique in the fact that he holds a Pro License in both oval and road racing disciplines. From competing in the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series to the Virtual World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series, he always finds a way to impress. After talking with him a few times we liked his quiet confidence and humble demeanor.

Alex will be flown out to Edmonton International Airportin just a few short weeks and ride over to Edmonton’s Castrol Raceway. Alex will have a couple days of practice in what will be his first time ever in a real race car. Our goal will be to have him race in the Extreme Cup in the Sportsman Series Sprint Car for a two day event. If Alex can replicate his skills in the real sprint car with what he does in the virtual one, he will put on a good show for sure.
Alex Bergeron is the first of hopefully many we will help to achieve their dreams of real world seat time. If you would like an opportunity to compete and climb into a dirt sprint car, please contact us for our upcoming events.
With eSports becoming one of the most dominate forms of entertainment, it’s only fitting we work to drive the racing side into the mix. With over 300 Million people watching over 32.4 Billion hours of eSports last year, the motorsports category can benefit greatly from the platforms and game genres that have paved the way. Now it’s our turn to break up that pavement and get dirty with some dirt track racing.
~eSports Racing is the only eSport where the skills and techniques learned can apply to it’s real world equivalent~
