Red Bull Racing wins final LMES Pro race of year at Spa
The final Pro race of the Le Mans Esports Series (LMES) saw Red Bull Racing take the chequered flag at the famous Spa-Francorchamps circuit behind the virtual wheel of the Porsche 911 RSR. The team also pocket $10,000 for today’s dominant win.
It was the final chance for the 16 Pro teams to cement their spot in the LMES Super Final, with the top six teams going through to take their place at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this September. All finalists will be fighting to take a share of $200,000.
Solar Vision Racing won today’s sprint race with Michael Thomas Coyne putting the team on pole for the all-important endurance race, eventually going on to finish fourth overall. The runners-up spot was taken by Ryze Performance, with Total Performance Racing securing the third podium spot.
The six teams who go through to this year’s Super Final include Red Bull Racing, Lazarus Racing, Total Performance Racing, Fast Racers Forza, Ryze Motorsport and Solar Vision Racing.
There are three further spaces still available for this year’s LMES Super Final. Until Sunday 3 May, the last stage of qualifying in the Rivals category will be open and is accessible for everyone.
Fans must launch Forza Motorsport 7 and go to the "Rivals" section. Here, among the events on offer, they will find the last round of the Le Mans Esports Series. Players must then post the best possible time around Spa, by virtually competing against players from all over the world in a time trial. The best drivers will be invited to the Le Mans Super Final.
