Actrollvision Community Racing is opening its doors to new drivers once again across all platforms for its new league seasons in Project CARS 2. Coming this September.
The hugely popular PS4 "Triple Threat" league will take place on Tuesdays, and has a few open slots up for grabs. The Triple Threat is three leagues that are linked by relegation and promotion after each ten-week season. The top three drivers in each class move up to the next division, whilst the bottom three move down. The September season will be the ninth running of the PS4 Triple Threat. Beginners will run in the Renault Clio Cup car, Intermediate drivers in Touring Cars, and Pros in the GT4 class.
Over on PC, the Triple Threat is in its fifth season, running on Thursday nights. The only difference here is the cars. Beginners take on the Radical SR3-RS, Intermediate racers drive the Ferrari 488 Challenge (EU), and the Pros race GTE machinery.
The ACR Xbox leagues take place on Wednesdays with two options: the fan favourite Ginetta GT5 league, and a separate Touring Car competition.
If that wasn't enough, ACR is also looking to run some Rallycross action in the near future. Follow Luke "Actrollvision" Crane on Twitter to get more details as they arrive.
For more information on these leagues, head to actrollvison.com or join the ACR Discord.
After a full month of hotly contested competition, European online qualifying for the 2019 Logitech G Challenge is now complete. The fastest drivers in the Project CARS community were joined by familiar faces from across the world of sim-racing as they competed in four events in the awesome McLaren 650S GT3.
Qualifying was about pure speed and raw talent as the drivers battled against the clock and against each other at Red Bull Ring, Brands Hatch, Nurburgring, and Autodromo Algarve. There were two places in the regional final up for grabs, as well as prize bundles from Logitech.
Logitech G’s flagship sim-racing competition is back. In 2018, Kristian Kwietniewski won the G Challenge Finals in Paris, and launched himself into the limelight in sim-racing esports. He earned a place in the McLaren Shadow Finals, and since then he has gone on to compete in our very own Playseat® SMS-R Series where he made it all the way to Finals in the Challenger Class. His performances caught the eye of Fernando Alonso, and he is now a proud member of the FA Racing esports team.
In 2019 you have the chance to follow in Kristian’s footsteps and earn your own place at the elite level of sim-racing. This year’s Logitech G Challenge is another incredible opportunity to qualify for the McLaren Shadow competition, to race for a chance to join McLaren's official esports team, and win some superb Logitech G gear.
The 2019 G Challenge is available to Project CARS 2 fans around the world, with competitions this summer in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. From in-game qualifiers in Project CARS 2, to wildcard qualifiers at gaming events around the globe.
North American qualifying starts on Sunday June 23. Qualifying in Europe begins on Monday June 24, and Asia-Pacific begins in July.

“The most beautiful man in sim-racing” (at least according to our esports commentator, Luke Crane!) is back on top of his game once again. In 2017, Kamil ‘Khaki’ Pawlowski was one half of BAM esports, the team that won the Pro Class Championship in the previous SMS-R Series. Things change quickly though in the world of Project CARS esports, and it wasn’t long before the BAM team folded, leaving Khaki out on his own.
Where others might have faded into the background, this Polish pilot thrived and secured a worthy personal sponsorship from Thrustmaster. For the 2019 SMS-R series Khaki remained a free agent, unable to enter the teams competition in the Pro Class. That left him to battle hard to earn a place in the Challenger Series, which he duly achieved. In the online competition that followed, Khaki had a rollercoaster season including a disqualification in Race 3, but he still collected enough points to earn his place in the Finals at Mercedes-Benz World.
At the LAN Finals, Khaki’s experience of these high-pressure situations shone through, and he dominated both races in the Challenger Class to earn his second Project CARS world championship title. We sat down with for a chat with him after the Finals to get some more insights into his remarkable story.
“Always the bridesmaids, but never the brides.”
That was the phrase that followed VP Gaming throughout the last few years of Project CARS esports, ever since it was uttered by Slightly Mad Studios' Creative Director, Andy Tudor more than two years ago. This talented German team has always shown great potential in major tournaments, but never quite secured a major title win. That all changed this year though when they finally went the extra mile and won the the Pro Class in the Playseat® SMS-R Series.
Over the four races in the online series, VP found a great rhythm and consistency in their driving, which saw them qualify comfortably for the Series Finals at Mercedes-Benz World in the UK. Their lead driver Isaac21 also came into form at exactly the right time in the competition. He won the last race in online Series and continued his momentum into the Finals, where he won one of the two races to boost VP’s points total and secure overall victory for the team.
We caught up with team manager and driver, Darwin_Daume after the Finals and found out what it means to finally have some major Project CARS silverware in their clutches.
