About the circuit
Online Challenge number seven for MotoGP™’s eSport Championship sees us heading to the Speang International Circuit in Malaysia. Jump on flying Frenchman Johann Zarco’s Yamaha YZR-M1 in the Online ‘Time Attack’ session and set a world-best time in the first of our challenges to be held in the wet.
Specifically built for speed and exciting racing, the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia is one of the world’s best. The 2,300-acre complex which also houses a hotel, shopping centre, golf course and other sports facilities cost around £50m to construct and was built in just 14 months, holding its first Grand Prix in April 1999 and setting the standard for race circuits worldwide.
With four slow corners following two long straights and ten medium to high-speed corners, the wide track is particularly favourable to overtaking manoeuvres and plenty of open throttle. One of the longest laps in MotoGP is made more gruelling for riders by intense heat and humidity. Sepang is located around 50km south of Kuala Lumpur city.
Remember, through each challenge period you need to prove your worth in the lower classes first. Beat the qualifying times and progress up to the next class. Want to skip straight to the premier-class? Record an exceptional lap time and get sent straight to phase 2 - the MotoGP™ Challenge.
The quickest gamer who posts the fastest lap worldwide on any platform (PS4, Xbox One, and PC) will be invited to show their skills in the second Semi-Final and fight against the best gamers in the World for a seat in the Grand Finale, held on the 16th November in Valencia during the MotoGP™ Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana.
