Alpine Esports Series 2022: First Race at Barcelona

No Comments

More than 3000 SimRacers participated in the qualification, only the best 30 will now start in the Alpine Esports Series 2022. The championship kicks off with two races on the Circuit de Catalunya in Assetto Corsa Competizione on Thursday evening – and Lorenz Hörzing from cowana Gaming SimRacing is right in the middle of things.

The Austrian finds himself up against a top-class starting field and has to compete with, among others, the reigning champion of the GT World Challenge Europe Esports Sprint Series and the British GT Esports James Baldwin or George Boothby, who finished on top of the qualification leaderboard. A high hurdle to clear when taking to the track in the Alpine A110 GT4.

However, the high stakes are worth it: Not only is there a total of $100,000 in prize money in the form of Alpine Fan Tokens, but there’s also a ride in Alpine’s GT4 racer, a Trakracer simulator, a BenQ Mobiuz EX3410R and other hardware prizes up for grabs.

The series will be held over three rounds, each with a sprint race and a main race. After the season opener in Barcelona, the series continues on May 12 at Circuit Paul Ricard before the finale on June 23 at a track chosen by the community. Alpine will stream the races live on YouTube and Twitch. The races start at 8.30pm each night.
