FORMULA 1 LAUNCHES FIRST ESPORTS COMPETITION
25 August 2017
Formula 1 has made its first entry into the world of esports with the launch of the Formula 1® Esports Series. Starting in September 2017, the competition will allow fans and gamers from all over the world to battle it out to be crowned the Formula 1 Esports Series World Champion.
The Formula 1 Esports Series is a partnership between Formula 1, the world’s premier motor sport; Codemasters, the leading racing game developer and publisher; and Gfinity, the global leader in esports events and competitions.
The 2017 F1 Esport Series will be the first year of an annual competition, highlighting the sport’s long-term investment in esports and gaming as well as its continued ambition to build a greater connection with wider audiences, especially younger fans.
Competitors will race through three different stages. Qualification events will take place throughout September to determine the quickest 40 drivers: these will progress to the live Semi-Final events, to be hosted at the Gfinity Arena in London on October 10th and 11th. The top 20 will then progress to the Grand Final, which will take place at the Yas Marina as part of the 2017 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on November 24th and 25th. At the end of a three-race series, the first Formula 1 Esports World Champion will be crowned on the same weekend as the final 2017 Formula 1 Grand Prix.
The F1 2017 game is now available for Xbox, Playstation and PC/Mac via Steam, and players on all three platforms have an equal chance of racing their way into the live Semi-Final.
Sean Bratches, Managing Director, Commercial Operations at Formula 1 said:
“This launch presents an amazing opportunity for our business: strategically and in the way we engage fans. First, it’s a growing category with tremendous fan engagement that we’re entering in a big way; and we are proud to have Codemasters and Gfinity joining us on this ride. Of course as we do in Formula 1, we’ll continue to evolve and innovate in the way we run this virtual counterpart to the F1 Championship to ensure we provide the most exciting and enjoyable experience we can for our fans.”
Frank Sagnier, CEO at Codemasters said:
"Esports is one of the fastest growing sectors of gaming already attracting audiences in the tens of millions. We are delighted to be announcing this incredible racing series with Formula 1 for our upcoming F1 2017 game. The highly competitive nature and high-speed spectacle of the sport combined with the authenticity of our game will provide a thrilling experience for players and viewers across the world. We look forward to engaging more deeply with our loyal and passionate community, and to bring new fans to both our game and the sport itself."
Neville Upton, CEO, Gfinity said:
“Formula 1 entering esports is a ringing endorsement for what spectacular entertainment esports provides and how vital it is to cutting-edge organisations that want to push the boundaries of entertainment and fan experience. Like Formula 1, Gfinity has the experience, skill and infrastructure to put on world-class events and we look forward to delivering fans the Formula 1 esports Series with excellence.”
Formula E je već lansirala eSport takmičenje, prva trka je već održana na zamišljenoj stazi u Las Vegasu gde se održalo ovo takmičenje. Pobedio je Bono Huis koji je dobio priliku testirati Dregon Rejsingov bolid na stazi Kalafat u Španiji.
Formula E hits Las Vegas for biggest prize in eSports racing history
Formula E is hitting Las Vegas this week – in more ways than one – for the inaugural Visa Vegas eRace.
Earlier this week, an all-electric convoy took to The Strip, with Sam Bird in a Formula E car, Antonio Felix da Costa in the BMW i8 Qualcomm Safety Car and Mitch Evans in the new Jaguar I-PACE concept to promote this weekend’s eRace.
The race, however, will not feature the cars in their physical form, but instead will pit the 20 Formula E racers up against 10 sim racers in a virtual world, with a $1 million pool making it the richest race in eSports racing history.
The battleground will be a 3.1-mile, 20-turn circuit designed around the streets of Sin City. A cool $200,000 will be awarded to the event winner.

Moto GP eSport Championship
17TH MAY 2017
We’re proud to announce the first official MotoGP# eSport Championship, exclusive for the Playstation 4 players.
Find below the official press release from Dorna:
Always at the forefront of digital trends, Dorna Sports kicks off the MotoGP# eSport Championship in 2017 to further engage its gaming fan base – as well as enticing fans to race in the comfort of their homes.
Dorna Sports approaches this project as a brand new Championship within its portfolio of racing series, managing all aspects of the competition. The official MotoGP# ’17 console video game – produced by long standing licensee Milestone – will provide the backbone of the MotoGP# eSport Championship, allowing gamers to take part in online challenges throughout the 2017 season with the aim of qualifying for the season finale, to be held in November at the circuit in Valencia – coinciding with the last round of the FIM MotoGP# World Championship. The eSport final event will be broadcast live by Dorna’s TV partners.
Exclusive to SONY PlayStation® 4, the MotoGP# eSport Championship will provide a direct link to real life racing with seven online events in a time trial format. The 16 fastest players will be invited to test their skills in a first live event in Valencia, just ahead of the MotoGP# season closer, with a BMW M240i up for grabs as the top prize.
This first foray into the eSports scene will lay the groundwork for a more extensive calendar for next year’s eSport Championship, which is backed by several founding members – most of whom are already involved in the MotoGP# World Championship as sponsors or partners.
Pau Serracanta, Dorna Sports’ Commercial Area Managing Director said: “Moving into the eSports scene is taking MotoGP into a new era. It’s a unique way to engage our established gaming audience and also a clear sign to the wider gaming community that MotoGP# is not only one of the top motorsports properties in real life, but also one of the most exciting digital experiences a console game can deliver. We will be putting together an exciting package mixing virtual and real life encounters blending the two worlds to deliver the utmost authenticity. From top tier partners to TV broadcasters and MotoGP# teams, the stakeholders will be working in unison to have a successful start in eSports, on a scale befitting MotoGP’s highest standards.”
