Two-time eSports WRC Championship winner Nexl won the Japanese round of the 2021 competition earlier this week.
Lebanese sensation Sami-Joe for Seventh Gear e-Sport Club had won every round up until this point – 10 victories in a row, no less – but previous champion Nexl struck back over the asphalt stages.
It sets up a thrilling end to the season. With Sami-Joe and Nexl guaranteed qualification into the World Final, we can’t wait to watch them go head-to-head.
Nexl’s Race Clutch teammate Noel finished third, sandwiching Sami-Joe in second. Of note, Botti JR of Williams Esports finished fourth and independent driver Dieguin237 finished inside the top 10 in seventh.
Race Clutch still leads the Teams’ standings ahead of Williams Esports.
There are only two rounds left for entrants to qualify for the world final, and with every event, you can enter as long as you own WRC 9 on PC, PlayStation or Xbox. The next chance to compete will be between 23rd and 26th July 2021 across the ultra-fast Finnish stages.
