The Big Data Beard hosted the Virtual Race To Splunk’s .conf20 in anticipation of a great virtual conference, but we want to keep the racing excitement going while we all enjoy the fun that is .conf!  That’s why we are hosting a championship racing series during .conf using the simulation platform and we are inviting YOU to see if you can BEAT THE BEARDS!

The series will include two regional races held October 20th and 21st where the first 60 registrants for each race will compete for a top 10 finish which grants them the chance to move on to the championship race on October 22nd.  The top 10 finishers from each of the regional races will advance to see if those racers can BEAT THE BEARDS!

To enter the race, you will need the following:

  1. An iRacing account (if you don’t have one, sign up here)

  3. Own the tracks you plan to race on with us (Indy, Silverstone and Las Vegas)
