Project CARS eSports drivers were in action once again yesterday in ESL Go4 Cup #21. This time we headed to the Czech Republic and the Brno circuit. We would like to take a moment now to apologise for the connection problems some drivers experienced this weekend, which were due to some ongoing issues with the PlayStation Network. However, despite this there was still plenty of fantastic racing and some close battles on all platforms, with more sim-racing teams and drivers competing this week than ever before.
Brno was the venue voted for by the drivers this time out and it presents a similar sort of challenge to last week’s track, Donington Park. There’s plenty of elevation change to get to grips with and you can really attack the rumble strips and curbs in every corner. Using the curbs on both exit and entry to each corner allows the best drivers to maximise their angle of attack and carry more speed through this flowing circuit. However, it’s easy to unsettle the car over the crests and bumps that Brno has to offer, so you still need to keep the throttle balanced at the right moments.
Aston Martin, BMW, Ford and Ginetta were all represented once again as we stick to the GT4 class throughout February. This was the third Cup to use these cars.
As always, drivers were competing for a €150 prize fund - split into three €50 prizes, one for the winner on each platform. At the end of February, the top 8 drivers on each platform will be invited to race in the February Final for an additional prize fund of €450!
The next ESL Project CARS open tournament is the Go4 Cup #22 on Sunday February 28 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!
