The Playseat® SMS-R Championship Series (powered By Events House) is the next major
Project CARS Esports series and will take place in the PC version of the game
with €20,000 in prizes up for grabs.
In previous seasons we’ve seen teams like Oscaro and BAM win big cash prizes in spectacular hard-fought rivalries.
In 2018, our previous SMS-R winners faced stiff competition in new tournaments,
such as the Renault esports Series and the A1 esports League,
battling the likes of Team Redline, VP Gaming, TX3, G2, Veloce and many more.
You can expect to see many of these teams fighting for the title in the 2019 Series.
