Erebus Motorsport is offering sim racers an opportunity to hone their virtual racing skills in the real world.

The junior programme saw competitors split into 13- to 15-year-old and 16- to 18-year-old groups. However, the new competition will be split into a 13 to 18-year-old and 18-plus groups.

The new competition will see qualifying take place on November 20 followed by three races on November 21.

Users will race at Mount Panorama with the Holden ZB Commodore.

The training day isn’t the only prize with a hot lap experience in one of the team’s Supercars on offer.

A $250 Pedders voucher, $250 JB Hi-FI voucher courtesy of Ryco Filters, and a Snap-on toolset are in the prize pool as well as a merchandise pack from Penrite Racing.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three drivers.
