The Le Mans Esports Series is run in partnership between the Automobile Club de l’Ouest and Motorsport Network. The series works closely with Microsoft as the competition is ran on Forza Motorsport 7. Participants competed in a series of online rounds and offline qualifying events at WEC's Fuji round, the 2019 Autosport International Show and the Sebring round - with each of those events acting as a regional qualifier for a Super Final at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the 14th and 15th June.
The concept for this year’s Super Final incorporated themes from the rich history of Le Mans, where drivers took part in historic battles with flavours of the modern World Endurance Championship. The competition was designed specifically to create incredible battles, stories and strategic elements which helped make up the “Le Mans Spirit”.
Veloce Esports won the inaugural Le Mans Esports Super Final, after clawing back from a 15 second deficit to win in the final race of the 24 Hour Super Final. The team entered the series as a wildcard entry alongside SMP Racing, joining ten qualified teams to compete for the first Le Mans Esports Series at the prestigious Circuit de la Sarthe.
