This weekend we have another double-header with Round 4 of the NVIDIA Challenger Series and the 36th ESL Weekly Cup.
Round 3 of the LGCS saw our top Esports drivers taking on arguably the most iconic race track on the planet - the Azure Circuit in Monte Carlo.
Occurring simultaneously with the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix, the fastest Project CARS pilots hit the streets of the French Riviera in Formula A machines to take on the ultimate challenge of risk vs reward. The barriers await mistakes at every turn, turning minor misjudgements into catastrophic collisions whilst also rewarding bravery and precision as the drivers flow from corner-to-corner, not daring to hesitate on the brakes or when turning-in.
Azure Circuit is also one of the shortest tracks that we will visit in the Logitech G Championship Series. With such close competition between the teams and drivers, a tiny mistake on such a short lap can result in a lot of time, positions and points being lost.
This weekend (May 27th), coinciding with the F1 Monaco Grand Prix, the 2016 Logitech G Championship Series heads to the luxurious Azure Circuit to battle it out in the Alpine A450.
Available on all platforms, players can enter via the Community Events section in-game however only teams that pre-registered before Draft Day will earn Championship Points.
Drivers must use the track at all times. For the avoidance of doubt, the white lines defining the track edges are considered to be part of the track but the kerbs are not.

Round 3 of the Project CARS Esports NVIDIA Challenger Series took our drivers across the globe, to New Zealand’s Ruapuna Park.
The short, two mile course at Ruapuna rewards smooth driving. The short-lap means than small mistakes can cost you a lot of time. Ruapuna is also a very flat circuit, with little elevation change to speak of, but don’t let that trick you into thinking it’s an easy place to drive. Many of the corners have wide apexes, encouraging drivers to experiment with different lines to find a route that suits their own driving style. Turn 1 is also a mighty challenge, forcing the drivers to negotiate a flat-out left kink just before a heavy braking zone, making it very easy to lock up the front tires and miss the corner completely.
To add to the challenge, the organisers selected the Ford Falcon FG for this event. Made famous in the Australian V8 Supercars series, the Falcon is a high-powered but heavy touring car. It has little to offer in terms of driver aids, and it loves to spin up its rear tires. This makes it a great fit for this Fixed Setup Series, because it makes for a real test of the the driver, rather than of engineering skill. With no way to dial-out this car’s unique handling through setup tweaks, all of the drivers had to use their feet, their hands and their senses to master this event. On with the results.
