April’s Project CARS Esports competitions continued at full-speed this week, with the last ESL Go4 Cup before the start of the 2016 Driver Network season. Therefore the latest ESL Cups were a big chance for the teams to sharpen their skills before Round 1 of the Logitech G Championship Series gets underway on April 15.
This week we headed back to California in the USA and to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. A notorious, narrow circuit with blind crests, steep hills and that infamous Corkscrew corner. The drivers were in GT4 class machines once more, making for a tough challenge at Laguna. Spotting your apexes early is crucial around this place. If you get your car’s positioning wrong by just a couple of feet, or transfer its weight at the wrong moment then you’ll find yourself with a one way ticket into the sand or into a wall.
As always, the drivers were competing for a €150 prize fund - split into three €50 prizes, one for the winner on each platform. At the end of April, the top 12 drivers on each platform will be invited to race in the monthly Final for an additional prize fund of €450!
The next ESL Project CARS open tournament is the Go4 Cup #29 on Sunday April 17 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 Go4 Cup. Please visit the ESL Project CARS forums to make your choice!
