After a fan vote, Nürburgring GP will hold the final round to decide the 2022 Alpine Esports Series champion, live later today (23rd June).
With a GT4 test drive up for grabs, plus the honour of being crowned Alpine Esports Series champion for 2022, Nürburgring GP has been named as the host for the title-deciding final round.
As it stands, forthcoming 24 Hours of Spa competitor James Baldwin heads the standings with two races left, thanks in part to a double race victory at Circuit Paul Ricard. Luke Whitehead sits 24 points behind in second, with George Boothby, aka UKOGmonkey, in third.
Nürburgring GP was voted for by fans of the series and Alpine Racing and follows rounds at the aforementioned Paul Ricard and Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
“If you go on the Alpine Cars website, there is the road car part, the Formula 1 team part and then you have the esports part. So it’s a full-on pillar of our strategy,” explained Alpine’s Head of Partnerships and Esports, Guillaume Vergnas, on a recent episode of the Traxion.GG Podcast.
“It’s the kind of positioning that’s helping us to develop. We need to target an audience that can purchase this kind of cars, but also a younger audience as well.”
