The A1 esports League returned on Sunday, with some spectacular racing in Project CARS 2. The first qualifying round saw some of the best-known and fastest sim racers in the world competing in the aggressive Mercedes AMG GT3 car at Hockenheim. The top PS4 and PC drivers battled through several heats to see who would take home the first points of the Season 2 qualifying rounds. After all five qualifying rounds are complete, the drivers with the most points will join the winners of two wildcard rounds at the offline finals in Vienna. Read on to find out who came out on top in week one.
Actrollvision Community Racing is expanding its PC leagues in Project CARS 2, to build on from the success of the "Triple Threat" format on PS4. The new competition will focus on Renault's various outstanding touring cars.
Like the existing PS4 Triple Threat league, the PC Triple Threat will feature three driver classes, racing separately, with promotion and relegation between each of the classes. On PC, Beginners will race Clio Cup. Intermediate drivers will race the Megane Touring Car. Pros will race the Megane Trophy. This will be a ten week series starting at 18:00 BST on Wednesday September 5.

ESL's A1 Esports League will return for a second season in Project CARS 2. The competition is open to anyone in Europe, with qualifiers starting later this month on both PC and PS4. The full three-game league (which also includes League of Legends and Clash Royale), will have a total prize pool of €32,000.
The Project CARS 2 segment of the first A1 League took place in Rallycross machines, but this time the action is switching to asphalt racing. The exact cars and tracks will be confirmed by ESL in the near future, along with more details about the qualifying schedule which is available at the series website.
Look out for more news coming from ESL soon, and keep in touch with the organisers at the links below. This tournament is owned and operated by A1 and ESL.

Actrollvision Community Racing, home of the 'Triple Threat League,' is expanding its offering into the USA and AUS/NZ time zones, and across the vast selection of racing machinery featured in Project CARS 2. ACR has many successful leagues running in the EU time zone, with US and Oceania residents already taking part, but it has decided to expand due to the demand for a more convenient time for those guys to race.
If you would like to see what ACR currently has to offer, then head to actrollvision.com where you will find details about all of the current leagues and weekly time trials. Schedules for these new leagues are currently being discussed, and ACR would love to hear your ideas.
