The first ever ESL Project CARS Monthly Finals have taken place and they were awesome!
Monthly Finals take the Top 8 drivers from each platform that month and pit them against each other in a showdown race to find the best driver! For the October 2015 Finals, ESL hosted two races per platform, with drivers allocated points based on their finishing positions. Whoever had the highest total points for their platform after both would be crowned the monthly champion and win €100! With one winner each on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, plus €50 for each runner up, that means Project CARS players won €450 of prizes in one day!
The action began on PC with the Top 8 drivers from October’s PC Go4 Cups...
ESL OCTOBER MONTHLY FINAL - PC
Race 1 saw the drivers take to Circuit De Barcelona Catalunya GP for 15 laps of close and intense racing. The podium went with form, as the drivers currently leading the November Go4 Cups all pulled out great drives. khaki took the win, with Blacky second and USSRxALeXeR in third.
Race 2 went for 15 laps at the iconic Circuit De Spa Francorchamps in Belgium and produced the same podium for the second race in a row! Check out the action from both PC races in the fantastic video above, created by famed Project CARS YouTuber and shoutcaster, Yorkie065!
All that means that khaki from Poland takes home the awesome €100 prize for winning the ESL Project CARS October Finals on PC!
ESL OCTOBER MONTHLY FINAL - PLAYSTATION 4
The PS4 field for the October finals was packed full of familiar faces from the world of Project CARS eSports. Including Alexx545 who won the Paris Games Week tournament in spectacular fashion in front of a packed ESL Arena, and TSRacing's Atho, the current leader of the SMS-R Driver Network Championship and a finalist at many live events including Paris Games Week and Gamescom.
ESL OCTOBER MONTHLY FINAL - XBOX ONE
Finally, there was the Xbox One October Finals, which very much carried on the theme of October’s Go4 Cups thanks to the utter domination of Finland’s SDL Mihalo. There were several other names from the SMS-R Driver Network Championship competing as well, including members of Starlux and Virtual Drivers by TX3.
A huge thank you from everyone at Slightly Mad Studios to all of the October finalists and everyone who has taken part in an ESL Project CARS event so far. Congratulations to our first monthly winners! A special shout-out to Yorkie065 as well, for his fantastic work on the video coverage of this event.
