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.
Utilising the Assetto Corsa Competizione sim racing platform, the Alpine Esports Series started with initial qualifying rounds in April, followed by two rounds and four races completed so far.
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.”
With a real world Alpine GT4 test drive up for grabs, the final will take place on 23rd June on Alpine’s Twitch and YouTube channels, alongside Binance Live, from 7.30 pm BST/8.30 pm CEST.
