This event will see McLaren driver Lando Norris take on several challenges, including a race against fans!

After a strong showing at the Bahrain VirtualGP it will be tough to beat Norris, but he is by no means the quickest on F1 2019 despite his amazing sim setup!

How will he get on? Let’s find out!

FIGHTING WORDS! Fans will be preparing for what’s to come too!

Race Format – 19:26 GMT

The first will be a Pro-Am challenge – it will be a five lap race against an amateur sim racing celebrity. Lando will have a handicap and have to catch up!

Next up will be a race against a young up-and-coming racer from the world of the junior formula. They will have to cut through a pack of AI drivers and see who can get furthest up the field.

Then it’s a hot-lap qualifying challenge against a fellow pro racer!

Finally, Lando will get dropped into Suzuka with a group of fans and have to emulate Ayrton Senna’s amazing recovery drive from 14th on the grid to win the race by a clear 13 seconds!

With every challenge Lando can score points, and his final total will then be the benchmark for future drivers to beat!

One hour to go! – 19:01 GMT

Just under an hour to go until we see McLaren driver Lando Norris take on several challenges which are sure to test his skills!

ON YOUR MARKS: It’s nearly time!
