The Lionheart Racing Series powered by HyperX announced today a first-time partnership with Snail Racing, a popular YouTube channel created by Larry and Annie Rabbets. The channel focuses on Annie’s journey from sim racing rookie to seasoned veteran racer.
Annie who started sim racing in August of 2019 after being convinced by Larry to try turning some laps on iRacing was immediately hooked. It was this excitement for sim racing that also helped spark the idea of not only creating her channel but also an online community for beginners and rookies to learn together in a fun and friendly environment.
“I have been a fan of Annie’s channel, Snail Racing for some time now and of the work that Larry and Annie are doing for the sim racing community,” said Lionheart founder Jorge Anzaldo. “Driver development has been on our radar for quite a while now and this presents the perfect opportunity to align ourselves with a great community who is dedicated to giving new drivers the tools needed for success. Lionheart is proud to support the Race to Learn Series and I’m excited to watch the progress of all the drivers involved.”
The Race to Learn Series created by Annie and Larry will take a group of 20 drivers through a 12-week program focusing on the fundamentals every sim racer needs for success. To the benefit of all drivers involved, the program goes beyond just traditional lessons such as car control or overtaking. Drivers will also learn about achieving the proper mindset, analyzing mistakes and crashes as well as anger management. At the end of each week’s lesson drivers will apply what they’ve learned in an official race.
“Jorge Anzaldo supported me from very early on in my sim racing career,” said Annie Rabbets of Snail Racing. “I am very excited that we can combine our efforts to create this joint venture which will allow less experienced sim racers to learn and progress with the support of well established drivers and organizations like the Lionheart Racing Series powered by HyperX.”
At the end of the program the top 15 drivers in points will be invited to a special broadcast championship race where all graduates will have the opportunity to showcase everything learned on a much bigger stage.
The Lionheart Racing Series powered by HyperX is known as one of the premier open wheel leagues on iRacing. Drivers of the series know that in order to be their absolute best it takes time, dedication and lots of practice.
“I love the work ethic and approach that the Snail Racing community puts towards improving their race craft,” Anzaldo said. “At Lionheart we preach practice every day and we’ve seen how its paid off for our most talented drivers. Competition. Commitment. Excitement. It’s the slogan of the league. I’m confident that Annie and Larry will deliver all three with their Race to Learn Series.”
