This weekend saw the final ESL Project CARS Go4 Cup for February take place at the iconic Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari. It was the last chance for our eSports drivers to put some bit points on the board and stake their claim to a place in the February ESL Project CARS Final. Only the top eight drivers on each platform will go through to compete for an additional €450.
The Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari is better known as Imola, the former home of the now defunct San Marino Grand Prix. The circuit became infamous in 1994 after the tragic deaths of Roland Ratzenberger and Ayrton Senna.
The modern-day Imola is a much safer circuit, though it still maintains most of the corners and atmosphere that gave it a legendary reputation amongst racing drivers and fans. It has some spectacular blind corners, challenging elevation change and one of the most enjoyable fast corners in all of racing, with the downhill plunge into Acque Minerali. Our drivers tackled the course in GT4 machinery - the same car class which they have driven throughout February.
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 overall top eight drivers on each platform will be contacted directly by ESL to arrange their participation in the February Final.
The next ESL Project CARS open tournament is the Go4 Cup #23 on Sunday March 6 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!
