About The Series

The Road to the Final

The championship launched at Autosport International in January this year with a hotlap format, and we will next head into a series of online time trial qualifiers for the Challenger Class. Successful drivers in the time trials will have a shootout race to determine the 10 best challengers to take on the Pros in the main championship. Then we'll have a month of gruelling endurance races, with the 8 best Challengers and top 4 Pro teams being invited to a LAN final in the UK


The Final

After 9 weeks of racing, the championship will head to a secret location in the United Kingdom for a LAN final. With the top 8 Challenger drivers and top 4 Pro teams, the competition is going to be fierce. The Pro drivers will use F1 Style Playseat cockpits, and the Challengers in Playseat Sensations, the visual difference in categories alongside the virtual race will be a great chance to introduce new members of the public to the world of Esports and the benefits it can bring.
