Acer Predator, Sim Racing Cup 2021 starts: qualifications, dates and modes of the eSports event

3 May 2021

Less and less is missing to the start of an event of absolute resonance for the world of eSports: the Acer Predator Sim Racing Cup 2021. It was the same Acer in recent days to disclose the official news: the exclusive tournament for true fans of motorsport and virtual gaming will be done, consolidating the partnership between Predator Gaming and R8G eSports.

The partnership with the Sim Racing team of Romain Grosjean, famous Formula 1 and Indycar driver, beats another blow by landing with this incredible event based on the famous driving simulator Assetto Corsa. But how will it work? Let’s find out all the necessary information together.

The tournament will allow future drivers to virtually compete with a Mercedes AMG GT3 racing car on the most famous and historic circuit of Monza and challenge opponents to get, round after round, to compete in the final challenge: up for grabs a very interesting and rich prize money.

However, to date, it is not yet known which track will be used to “host” the International Final: this is because the location for the last act of the tournament will be chosen through the vote of the drivers participating in the final phase of the competition.

Registrations are already open and aspiring pilots can try their hand at qualifying, which will be held from 17 to 21 May. Only the twenty fastest will then have access to the National Challenge, consisting of a 45-minute race to be held on May 22 at 19:00.

The Italian winner of this challenge, in addition to winning a valuable prize from Predator, will automatically go to the International Final in June: on this stage will challenge not only the 14 winning drivers from other countries, but also the pro-drivers of Team R8G eSports.

And the champion of the tournament? He will be rewarded with a unique experience: he will have won the opportunity to be part of the R8G eSports Team for a year and, in this way, he will be able to start an exciting career as a Sim Racing driver thanks to the support of the best gaming devices of the Predator range!

The Predator Sim Racing Cup can be followed by all fans in live streaming on the Assetto Corsa Youtube channel, which will entertain the community for the duration of the event along with Predator brand ambassadors. And that’s not all: the Predator Sim Racing Cup will also offer a special promotion on all selected Predator brand products, in collaboration with Unieuro.

Once again, Acer and Predator have proven to be in step with the times, full of innovation and always ready to launch exciting and spectacular initiatives for the community. Mediability is proud of the collaboration with a company like Acer, for which it provides constant services of analysis, press review and creation, management and publication of press releases related to its activities.
