Australia has been dealing with an extreme bushfire season, since September 2019.

Australia has been dealing with an extreme bushfire season, since September 2019. To date, an estimated 26 MILLION acres have been burned, 5,900 buildings destroyed, and 28 people killed, making this the largest widlfire in recorded history.

This tragedy hits especially close to home for us at CanAm VRL, since one of our members (Glasnost) is with the New South Wales Rural Fire Service. New South Wales is the hardest hit region. The RFS, which is primarily volunteers, has been at the heart of the battle. In short, they are true heroes, who now need our help.

CanAm VRL is proud to be a supporting partner in an event named "Race For Relief". This is a fundraiser event hosted within iRacing.com and is the brainchild of Glasnost. He has managed to gain the support of several well known streamers to cover the race, and has led a team of individuals to organize the various elements including marketing, registration, officiating, etc.

100% of all driver registration fees ($15 AUD), and all funds raised from the broadcasts will be donated to fire services via a previously established Gamer Aid Go Fund Me campaign.

Driver registration, and full event rules are available from the event's Discord server ( https://discord.gg/RegHa8a ).

Please show your support of these heroes, and the victims of these tragic fires by either registering with a team, as an individual driver, or simply donating to the cause. Be sure to help spread the word to the larger iRacing community as well.

On behalf of all of us at CanAm VRL, I thank you for your support.
