Ferrari has launched its own esports championship, the Ferrari Hublot Esports Series. The championship will take place in Assetto Corsa, with a Ferrari 488 Evo being made exclusively available to competitors.
The move comes off the back of an unprecedented amount of activity in sim racing as teams and drivers took to the virtual world during the extended off-season, with Ferrari’s own F1 superstar Charles Leclerc emerging as one of the stars of the action.
Registration is open to all European residents over the age of 18 from the 7th of August, with 24 successful drivers going on to the PRO rounds in October. The finals will have 12 drivers competing over three races for the ultimate prize in November.
Details of the event, and registration for those interested in taking part, can be found at www.ferrariesportsseries.gg.
