Start as you mean to go on! 2022’s First Online Challenge Starts Now!

The 2022 MotoGP™ eSport Championship kicks into life this weekend with the first Online Challenge requiring gamers to get the best from the World Champion’s bike under the floodlights at the Lusail International Circuit.

The brilliantly exciting MotoGP™ eSport Championship is back for a sixth season and the the 2022 Pro Draft kicks off tomorrow on the 3rd March.

The first of four Online Challenges will mirror real life events: the track is the Lusail International Circuit, the scene of this weekend’s MotoGP™ curtain raiser. And what better rider and machine than the one which took the world crown last year: Fabio Quartararo. The Frenchman and his Monster Energy Yamaha M1 will be used in the Online ‘Time-Attack’ session. The challenge runs from the 3rd of March at 11am CET to 6th March at 7pm 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 six from the Rest of the World classification (plus the three gamers that qualified from last season’s Rising Stars Series) will make up the 25 riders that qualify for the Draft Selection with 12 of those guaranteed a spot in the Global Series!
