Season 4 of the GT Pro Series esports championship within rFactor 2, and now using GTE-class cars, started with a bang in Monza. Quite literally.
Now the 30-car grid bristling with the top professional esports talent crosses the Atlantic to visit Florida’s Sebring International Raceway. The touch and touch nature of the venue will pose a tough challenge to the closely matched field.
After the opening round, Jiri Toman and Jernej Simončič led the way by a slim margin on equal points, with Toman leading on countback. The event certainly wasn’t without incident, sp expect more action at Sebring later today.
The entire series is live on the Traxion.GG YouTube channel and Facebook page each other Monday, with the feeder GT Challenge series the following Friday.
Tune in this evening, from 7.00 pm CEST / 6.00 pm BST / 10.00 am PT / 1.00 pm ET to watch the best esports GT racing around.
