    This Sunday, it’s time for the first live streamed race of the Esports WTCR OSCARO, the virtual racing championship of the FIA WTCR / OSCARO, hosted on RaceRoom and supported by KW Suspensions. Seven online rounds are coming up, and these are the storylines and competitors of the upcoming season.

    THE BEST OF THE BEST IN SIMRACING

    With a live final in Malaysia coming up and 25.000 Euro in travel support and prize money on offer, the field is looking stronger than ever before. Of course, the reigning champion Bence Bánki will return to the championship, as the lead driver of the French team SDL eSports by Logitech G. But the competition will be fierce.

    Williams Esports, who can count on the support of Williams F1, won the pre-qualifying session with Nikodem Wisniewski behind the wheel, while also featuring Jack Keithley, Kuba Brzezinski and Moritz Löhner.

    Last year’s runner-up Tim Jarschel heads the German quartet of EURONICS Gaming, together with Michael Rächl, Florian Hasse and Julian Kunze. The latter two won the ADAC GT Masters Esports Championship this year as a team.

    For the first time, Red Bull Racing Esports has entered a driver in the Esports WTCR OSCARO – experienced simracer Nestor Garcia. Another racer from Spain, perhaps a little bit more famous so far, is double Formula One champion Fernando Alonso. He now owns the FA Racing Esports team, which is represented by Kristian Kwietniewski in the top split. But with just half a second separating the top 30, no one can be counted out: Perhaps long-time competitors Jaroslav “Jardier” Honzik or Márk Nándori will land a surprise win on Sunday?

    In total, over 3000 drivers participated in the Hungaroring qualifier. The race of the top 30 will be streamed live, with English commentary by James Kirk and Robert Wiesenmüller, on Sunday, 18. August, at 17:30 GMT (19:30 CEST) here:



    The streams will also be live on the FIA WTCR Facebook page:

    As well as RaceRoom’s Twitch channel:

    HYUNDAI ON TOP?

    In the pre-qualifying session for the first race, it was almost all Hyundai at the front. Only 2 Hondas, those of Bence Bánki and Turkish racer Emre Cihan, managed to break the Hyundai phalanx in the top 10.

    With unlimited practice time and reproducible track conditions, the times in Esports WTCR OSCARO are often even closer than in the real cars. Therefore, a very precise Balance of Performance was required, and exactly 13 kg were added to the Hyundai as a performance weight (Honda +4kg, Audi +2kg, Cupra +1kg). As a result, a wide variety of cars and liveries will be participating in the races. Especially the Hungarian drivers, such as Gergo Baldi, David Nagy and Zoltan Csuti from M1RA Esports, have already confirmed their loyalty to Hyundai though and will compete in the #5 livery of Norbert Michelisz.

    HOW DID THE REAL DRIVERS DO?

    The battle of the real WTCR drivers had a clear winner: Niels Langeveld was the quickest with a 1:51.552, almost a second quicker than Mikel Azcona and Yann Ehrlacher. As a result, Niels has also qualified for a multiplayer race, where he will compete against 29 simracers.

    His race will also be streamed live, on the same day at 15:45 GMT (17:45 CEST), directly before the top split race:

    special message :
    On server 2 last night the Macau esport team drivers were constantly flashing and caused a lot of concern for the other drivers. This problem should be addressed.
    Either by changing the servers so that everyone can drive in good conditions. Or limit server access by geographic region.
    example
    3 European servers
    1 Asian server
    1 American server

    Thank you.

    Hello, the time export shows you with 2m 08.617s. Maybe you had a connection issue to the server?

    I have invited the Macau Esports drivers to do a test on the practice server. Then we can see potential fixes for the future rounds. At least Lei competed in our leagues for years already, so I want to give them a chance to see if it was only the server yesterday.
