It's been another thrilling and busy week in the world of Project CARS esports, with top talent on display in two of the biggest racing competitions in the world. It kicked off with the finals of McLaren Shadow, McLaren's hunt to find the world's best all-around sim-racer across five different games, to join their official esports team.
The Playseat® SMS-R Series is the next major Project CARS 2 esports competition, 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 SMS-R Series.
