The 36 European Pro Draft competitors will be hoping Le Mans is a happy hunting ground for them, as that’s where they’ll be riding to try and grab a Final Draft place. The players will have to tame the Red Bull KTM Tech 3 of Miguel Oliveira around the tricky Le Mans layout over three flying laps in ‘Time Attack’ mode, with their fastest lap being the one that counts.
The French city and circuit of Le Mans are synonymous with motorsport - having hosted two and four wheel races and endurance events for many years. Le Mans first held a motorcycle Grand Prix event in 1969, when the great Giacomo Agostini won the 500cc race, lapping all the other riders on his MV Agusta.
The modern circuit has been a permanent fixture on the MotoGP™ calendar since 2000. Local French fans are knowledgeable and passionate about their racing, with a boisterous atmosphere at races.
The three fastest competitors from each console (PS4, Xbox One and PC), nine in total, will then move onto the next stage of the MotoGP™ eSport World Championship – the Final Draft.
