Aussies riders will get the chance to compete to play in the MotoGP Esports Championship in Spain later this year. With more challenges, more chances to win, and an increased number of platforms available to compete on, making it sure to be a bigger and better show than ever before.
Managing Director for Dorna, Pau Serracanta, said: “We are very proud to host the second edition of the MotoGP eSport Championship this year and are confident that many more fans will have the chance to enjoy taking part due to it being available on all gaming platforms as well as there being more online and offline events. Without a doubt, it will also benefit the MotoGP teams as they will have increased exposure with their fan base.”
Beginning on 18th July, the first four challenges are raced at COTA, Sachsenring, Losail and the Red Bull Ring and will take place until August. The live Semi Final 1 event will take place at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli in September and the second Semi Final is to be held at the Movistar eSports Center in Madrid on November 2nd.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Milestone for their excellent work with the development of the spectacular new game MotoGP18 as well as the continued support from our Founding Partners.” Serracanta continued.
The no.1 rider from the tournament will drive away in their very own BMW M240i Coupé, with some exclusive money can’t buy experiences also on offer.
MotoGP 18 launches worldwide on June 7th 2018 for PlayStation® 4, Xbox One and Windows PC, with a Nintendo Switch release planned for later this year.
