Ferrari is going to launch its own Esports championship later this year. The competition will be open to the public and the winner will get a chance to join the Scuderia’s FDA Hublot Esports team in 2021.
The move comes off the back of an unprecedented amount of activity in sim racing as teams and drivers took to the virtual world during the extended off-season, with Ferrari’s own F1 superstar Charles Leclerc emerging as one of the stars of the action.
Charles Leclerc will be keeping a watching brief on the series, offering his own advice and guidance in what’s set to be a three-stage tournament. An open AM series will see qualifiers begin this September – with registration open to all European residents over the age of 18 from August 7 – with 24 successful drivers going on to the PRO rounds in October. The finals will have 12 drivers competing over three races for the ultimate prize in November.
The Ferrari Hublot Esports Series will take place in Assetto Corsa, with a Ferrari 488 Evo being made exclusively available to competitors.
