The leading esports team Veloce Esports has won the inaugural Le Mans Esports Series. Veloce entered the Super Final as a wildcard entry. It partnered its Forza specialists David Kelly and Noah Schmitz with eROC champion but Forza novice James Baldwin.
Veloce finished second in the first of the nine races and struggled in the subsequent races. However, it has won the sixth race and earned the fourth grid position for the deciding race. As Veloce was 15 points off the championship lead, Baldwin started Veloce’s race 15 seconds after the pole sitter Baguette Racing.
The team passed Kitty Krew, who won two of the first eight races and hunted down Baguette, passing the French trio’s entry on lap 18 of 24. Baguette was forced to settle for second place ahead of Kitty Krew, who took the final place on the podium.
