It was ESL Project CARS Go4 Cup time again this weekend! While we were hosting Brands Hatch Indy time trial events at the Autosport International show, our online eSports stars were battling it out on the longer Brands Hatch GP circuit in the Formula Gulf 1000.
With the SMS-R Driver Network Championship Final catching the attention of some of the big eSports teams at the weekend, an opportunity appeared for new faces to score some big points in the ESL races, and for some of our once dominant drivers to sneak back onto the podium in place of the major teams.
Brands Hatch GP is actually quite similar to last week’s venue, Watkins Glen. It’s a narrow track with plenty of elevation change and there are several corners where no one line is the correct option. This frees the drivers to experiment with the positioning of their car and opens up more overtaking opportunities than usual.
As always, the drivers were competing for a €150 prize fund - €50 on each platform - and the chance to collect some all important championship points. At the end of the month, the top 8 drivers with the most points on each platform; PC, PS4 & XB1, will be invited to compete in the January ESL Finals for an additional €450 of prizes!
The next ESL Project CARS open tournament is the Go4 Cup #17 on Sunday January 24 with a €150 prize fund!
Go4 events consist of 4 or 5 weekly cups and a monthly final each month. The Cup Series is free and open to everyone and has €50 waiting for the best player on each platform. The weekly cups take place every Sunday and start at 19:00 CEST. All players earn ranking points to qualify for the Monthly Final where the winners on each platform will receive a $150 bonus!
Don’t forget, you can now vote for the circuit you want to race at in the next event. Please visit the ESL Project CARS forums to make your choice!
