From August 28 to September 13, all participants will have the chance to drive their fastest lap possible on three tracks in a leaderboard challenge. Your best laps on the three tracks will be added up to define your total time for your position on the leaderboard. Consequently, the top 18 of the Leaderboard qualify for the DTM Esports Championship. Read the full sporting regulations here. Together with the professional DTM drivers, the top riders will then complete four rounds, each containing two races of 20 minutes. The fourth and final round consists of a special format: the Grand Finale. THE TEAMS Each team consists of one DTM driver and three sim racers from the leaderboard who are assigned to the teams randomly. The DTM drivers act as mentors and provide guidance. In total, the DTM Esports Championship is carried out with six teams. At the end of the racing series, an exciting prize awaits not only the best sim racer, but also the best team.
