In 2019 season, in cooperation with the Lithuanian Automobile Sport Federation (LASF), the virtual Lithuanian Rally Championship e-LARC was launched, with Skuba becoming the title partner. This was a very important step in terms of electronic sports recognition as it was the world’s first national open rally e-championship.
In the debut of official championship, 292 participants from more than 25 countries competed in nine classifications. Like the Lithuanian Automobile Rally Championship (LARC), e-LARC consisted of six events, dedicated for Utena, Kelmė, Mikolajki (Poland), Elektrėnai, Rokiškis and Druskininkai. Every event started more than a week before, and for the convenience of the participants, they had six days to record the result.
The second season of the virtual Lithuanian Automobile Rally Championship e-LARC was not hindered by the global COVID-19 pandemic that started at the beginning of the year. The 2020 season was marked by unprecedented competition between 358 participants from 28 countries around the world in six different classifications. Regular participants of the WRC, ERC, LARČ, LARSČ and LMRČ series could be met among the participants too.
Unlike the Lithuanian Automobile Rally Championship (LARC), the virtual championship season consisted of 6 event, which were dedicated to real, but this year canceled winter rallies in Utena and Gulbene (Latvia) and gravel stages in Kelmė, Rokiškis, Elektrėnai and Zarasai. It is important to mention that there were 5 different participants won of events. As usual, events started more than a week before real event started. In the last event of Zarasai, the coefficient of 1.5 points was applied to the participants, and summing up all the points collected in the championship, the substracting one worst result rule was applied.
