Team changes

  • After 17 seasons in the Superleague, Nordsjøen Racing closed its doors at the end of the 2018 season.
  • EVAL Simracing Team withdrew from the Superleague after a single year in the competition.

New entries

  • Scuderia Basilea was promoted from Supercup following a dominant season in the lower series in 2018.
  • YTF1 were also promoted from Supercup, having finished 2nd to Basilea in their maiden Supercup season.

Returning entries

  • Green Stripes Racing returned to the Suplerleague after a 1-year abscence, having spent that time competing in Supercup instead.

Mid-season changes

  • Defending Champions ACR Zakspeed dropped Zakspeed from their title and renamed their entry to Avid Chronic Racing, shortly after the season commenced. During the summer break, the team then disaffiliated themselves with Avid Chronic Racing but were obligated to continue competing under the ACR name for the remainder of the season: essentially becoming Vod:Bul Racing once again, in all but name.
  • MadCape Racing Team particularly struggled to field 2 cars for the whole season - the team missed the Canadian Grand Prix and later only entered 1 car into each of the last three races of the season.

Driver changes



There were a high number of mid-season driver changes during the 2019 season - as such, this list is not exhaustive.

Technical changes

  • Adjustable fuel mixture settings were introduced to the championship.
  • Other changes include revised tyres and aerodynamics, in addition to power unit adjustments.
