Slippery when wet! The third Online Challenge is here!

The opening stage of the 2022 MotoGP™ eSport Championship continues this weekend as the wet weather riding skills of gamers from around the world will be tested to the max!

Are you fast in the dry? OK, but how are your wet weather riding skills? That will play a crucial role in the third Online Challenge of this year’s MotoGP™ eSport Pro Draft, which starts this week!

As the current MotoGP™ field is making its way to South America for the first Argentina Grand Prix since 2019, this week’s Online Challenge will see gamers take on the fast, challenging Termas de Rio Hondo Circuit in the north of Argentina.

And gamers will face unique wet conditions during this Challenge, where delicate wet weather skills will be needed. Australian Jack Miller, who scored a famous pole position here in 2018 in iffy conditions, and his Lenovo Ducati GP22 will be used in the Online ‘Time-Attack’ session. The challenge runs from the 31st of March at 11am CET to Sunday 3rd April at 19:00 CET.

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.

At the end of the fourth Online Challenge the 16 gamers with the most points in the European classification and the 8 from the Rest of the World classification (plus the three gamers that qualified from last season’s Rising Stars Series) will make up the 27 riders that qualify for the Draft Selection with 12 of those guaranteed a spot in the Global Series!
