A new month of ESL Project CARS Esports action is underway, which means new opportunities for the world’s best sim-racers to win some prize money and stake their claim to being known as the fastest Project CARS drivers around.
For March 2016, ESL has kept the GT4 car class, which proved to be extremely popular with the drivers in February. With a little less power, a little less grip and a little more weight than their big brothers, the GT3 cars, the GT4 machines place a lot of emphasis on driver skill. The Aston Martin, BMW, Ford & Ginetta are very closely matched in lap-time so the drivers really need to be smooth and precise to extract the maximum performance. It’s no surprise that this class gave us many new faces on the podium in February, and we expect more of that same competitive action in March as well.
For Cup 23, the drivers returned to New York, USA to take on the challenges of the extremely fast and extremely bumpy Watkins Glen GP circuit. One wrong move on this undulating course and you’ll quickly find yourself making friends with a metal barrier or a concrete wall.
As always, the drivers were competing for a €150 prize fund - split into three €50 prizes, one for the winner on each platform. At the end of March, the top 8 drivers on each platform will be invited to race in the March Final for an additional prize fund of €450!
