What an impressive Global Series Round 2! Relive the first race at Le Mans

The battle to become the MotoGP™ eSport Champion intensified during the second round of the 2022 Global Series with two races delivering stunning action.

For the sixth year in succession, the Global Series pits the fastest gamers from around the world against one another over five rounds and ten races. Each finalist has been chosen to represent one of the twelve current MotoGP™ teams as they fight it out to become the 2022 MotoGP™ eSport Champion.  

And following on from an all-action opening round, held during the ItalianGP, the second round delivered on all accounts as the fastest gamers in the world faced off in two intense fights. Former champions trast73 and adriaan_26 fought it out in a battle of wits in the afternoon’s first encounter, before adriaan_26 exacted his revenge on the Italian in the second.

Qualifying for the race at Le Mans couldn’t have been tighter, with just 0.134s covering the top five names on the grid! But soon trast73, who had qualified third, and adriaan_26 grabbed the early initiative and got down to a blinding pace. It was then a cat and mouse battle as the pair exchanged fastest times. But trast73 held his nerve to win by 0.968s in a crucial victory.

Behind Jack Hammer4658 stormed to a brilliant third place to enhance his prospects in the championship after coming home less than a second ahead of pole sitter AndreaSaveri11PieroRicciuti55 was just clear of Vindex813 in fifth.
