The official American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Esports Championship for Supercross is underway for 2023. The competition runs through the MX Simulator platform, and the 17-race schedule kicked off just the other day, on Wednesday 4th January.
Init Esports, a female-led producer of online competitions and real-life esport events across multiple sports, industries and platforms, is hosting the championship. This is the same team that is running the Screen to Speed by Pennzoil contest, and has hosted many official AMA championships in recent times.
MX Simulator, a physics-based motocross title which has been around for more than a decade, is the platform which the championship will take place.
All participants looking to score championship points will need to have a verified AMA license and a season pass to get into all the races.
You don’t need a license to partake, however, as Init offers single race passes and season passes without spending on the AMA license.
The races for the series will be streamed on the Init Esports’ Twitch, the Start Your Systems YouTube, and over on ESTV. Races happen on Wednesday evenings at 5:30 p.m. PST.
There are two classes – a 250 class and a 450 class. The first winner of the 250 main on Wednesday was Seth Shirley while Braden Carter won the 450 main, all the action taking place at Angel Stadium in Anaheim.
