Sami-Joe has done it again, defeating his nearest rivals and winning eight 2021 eSports WRC Championship presented by Toyota Gazoo Racing round in a row. It also guarantees the Lebanese star a place in the final, held later this year.
The first stage was the famous Arganil venue, home to many rally-deciding performances over the years in the real-life WRC. The relatively short 7.47 km gravel stage was then followed by the 17.92 km monster, Cabeceiras de Basto, with the combined times across both routes determining the leaderboard.
Once again, former champion Nexl was on the podium in second place, with Kriim rounding out the podium. It meant three different teams – Seventh Gear, Race Clutch and ERally Drivers – were in the top three positions. Race Clutch also finished in fourth thanks to Izamusing. Marvin01 was an interloper in the overall top ten, rallying without a team and on the PS5 version of the game – a great performance!
The next round will be held on twisty gravel stages of Italy, Sardegna, between 27th-31st May 2021 and is open to anyone with WRC 9 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series.
