New Kart racing Esport series also coming soon
With the announcement of the new kart comes the announcement of a new Competition System Esport as well. Starting 11th September, a “limited-time esport series” in the rFactor 2 Competition System will run featuring the new kart and select kart tracks.
Those who qualify through will have a chance at a real-life karting opportunity in the T4 Series World Championship. You love to see when virtual opportunities turn into real-life opportunities.
More information will be announced before the start of the series, so we’ll keep you informed when that drops. Tell us your thoughts on the new kart and esport series in the comments below!
