The 2021 WRC esports 2021 competition got off to a false start in January, with timing errors meaning the opening Rallye Monte-Carlo was postponed, but now it will be back on 5th February.
A revised calendar has been issues by both the FIA World Rally Championship and KT Games, the developers behind the WRC 9 game.
The rescheduled Monte Carlo event will now run between 5th-8th February, which is when the second round was originally planned to take place. This re-shuffle has meant a complete re-organisation of the 14-round calendar, now ending with Wales Rally GB in August, instead of Finland in July. The revised calendar can be viewed below.
For the first event, the stages remain the same as originally planned, which means the battle will be across two stages – the 6.6km Luceram Reverse and the 21.05km La Bolléne-Vesuby. The competition is open to all WRC 9 players on PS4/5, Xbox One/Series or PC, culminating in a final event that is still TBC.
In previous WRC esports seasons, the victor has won a real-life Hyundai car, and while the 2021 prize has yet to be revealed, Toyota is this year’s event sponsor. Stay tuned to Traxion for more information on WRC esports and let us know in the comments if you will be participating.
