Meet The Challengers…

December 18, 2020

The 2020 F1 Esports Pro Series is over, but the F1 Esports Series Challengers is just about to begin!

What is The Challengers? Well, it’s the route to the 2021 F1 Esports ProExhibition , the gateway to dreams come true and maybe, just maybe, the opportunity of a lifetime. Players who qualified for 2021 qualification have been sorted into groups of 16  players per console.

Each of these groups forms a mini-league that will run through the early months of 2021, with the very best making it all the way to the Pro Exhibition. From there, they’ll be eligible for selection by one of the 10 official F1 Esports teams.

RACE FORMAT

Each round of The Challengers will consist of two 25% races per console, running on consecutive days. So to kick off, our first week of action will see the PS4 racers battle on December 21, with Xbox and PC players following suit the next two days.

Five race weeks – one per month from December 2020 to April 2021 – will sort the good from the great, and we’ll end up with the six finest racers from each platform progressing to the Pro Exhibition.

These streams will be taking place on Twitch and Huya from 19:00 GMT, so you can follow the action as it goes along!

But, this still isn’t the last chance to qualify for 2021. The DHL Virtual Fastest Lap competition is open now, giving you a shot of making the 2021 Time Trials if you can match the target time. Head here to find out more!
