The new Formula Challenge Series kicks off today and is live on Traxion.GG’s YouTube channel.
The esports championship will see drivers competing for a chance to be in the Formula Pro Series in Season 2. Following the first race at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, the Challenge Series will follow the Pro Series each Friday and at the same venue.
The car of choice will be the Formula Pro, a V10 single-seater with modern aerodynamics, recently added to rFactor 2.
Formula Challenge entries will be available to all via the in-game Competition System and then broken down into several splits for the season opener. Throughout the season drivers will be able to move up and down between the splits.
If you’d like to see more Formula Pro esports action, then tune in from 6.45 pm BST / 7.45 pm CEST / 10.45 am PT / 1.45 pm ET.
