The first stage of the 2023 MotoGP™ eSport Championship is drawing to a close with the third and final Online Challenge of the Pro Draft kicking off on Wednesday 12th July. This is your final chance to qualify for the next stage!
Back for a seventh successive year, the MotoGP™ eSport Championship will pit the fastest gamers on the planet together for the Global Series. But before then they must find a way to qualify through the Pro Draft, a series of time attacks in the form of Online Challenges.
The third and final Challenge takes place on the fabulous long straights on Austria’s Red Bull Ring. And gamers must set the best time possible aboard Jack Miller’s Red Bull KTM RC16. After Online Challenge 2 was set in the wet, this will be in the dry.
Almost all options are pre-set for the Online Challenge, and only the fastest lap will be recorded, no matter how many times the ‘Time Attack’ session is completed over the course of the Challenge period. Ideal trajectory and rewind will be unavailable during time-trials in the premier-class - meaning pure gaming skill is what’s required to beat the fastest in the world. The machine and rider are also pre-selected and designed specifically for each Challenge period.
When competing in each Online Challenge, gamers will be classified in one of two categories: those from Europe and those from the Rest of the World. The gamers setting the fastest times will be awarded points. The first Online Challenge will run for five days until Sunday 16th July.
At the end of the third Online Challenge the 15 gamers with the most points in the European classification and the 7 from the Rest of the World classification (plus winner of last year’s Rising Stars Series) will make up the riders that qualify for the Draft Selection with 11 of those guaranteed a spot in the Global Series!
