Le Mans Esports Series format revealed for Super Final
The format for the Super Final of the Le Mans Esports Series (LMES) has now been revealed.
The teams and drivers, which were recently announced, will compete in nine races on the Xbox One exclusive Forza Motorsport 7. There will be 36 top gamers from across the world, who will be competing on 12 different simulators.
The teams will have a virtual budget of €150m to build a fantasy garage, and competitors will race on both the historical and modern varieties of the Le Mans track as well as getting to experience WEC races at Silverstone, Sebring and Spa-Francorchamps.
The first and final race will use a traditional Le Mans start, meaning drivers must run to their rig and take the wheel to start. The Le Mans start will play a crucial role in the ninth race, which will decide the LMES champions, as points accumulated over the first eight races set the grid and the intervals between teams.
The first ever LMES champions will take their share of a $100,000 prize pool and also celebrate their victory on the real-life 24 Hours of Le Mans podium.
