Top online racers head to Fuji for Le Mans Esports
The 10 best online racers will be joined by two on-site competitors in a battle for a share of $10,000 prize money as the Le Mans Esports Series Fuji round reaches its thrilling climax.
For the past two weeks, competitors from around the world have been setting blistering qualifying times around the Suzuka circuit on Forza Motorsport 7 in an attempt to make it into the top 10 in their region and secure a place in the LMES Super Final at Le Mans next June.
But for Asia Pacific racers, the race to compete for a Super Final spot is still open.
On October 14, 10 of the best online racers from the region will be flown out to the Fuji circuit to compete alongside the two fastest qualifiers who set their lap times on-site in an Esports event during the real 6 Hours of Fuji, the 4th round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.
The two-hour race will decide the winner, who will join online qualifiers from America and Europe and take their place in a team of three drivers, one from each region, to compete in the Super Final.
