BRITISH GT ESPORTS CHAMPIONSHIP HISTORY
In 2015 the growing popularity of esports amongst motorsport fans prompted British GT organisers, SRO Motorsports Group, to join forces with The Online Racing Association (TORA) and create an officially sanctioned real-world sim racing series.
The championship was previously staged on the Project CARS platform before switching to Forza Motorsport, which featured a greater selection of GT3 and GT4 machinery, plus a livery editor allowing for the recreation of detailed real-world British GT designs. Now it will move again to the critically accliamed official GT World Challenge game, Assetto Corsa Competizione.
Once registered, the championship’s technical partner - AK Informatica - will provide further details about the competition including regulations, Discord channel link and server information.
This year's overall GT4 champion will win a Fanatec prize bundle worth approximately €2,000, a real-world Intelligent Money British GT Championship VIP experience, and guaranteed GT World Challenge Europe Esports Championship entry.
20 GT4 entries will contest each of the five British GT Esports Championship rounds.
All 20 of Oulton Park’s GT4 spaces are determined by the Hot Lap Qualifying competition. Two spaces are reserved for each of Assetto Corsa Competizione’s 10 manufacturers rather than the fastest 20 drivers overall. Hot lap leaderboards will display the fastest drivers and times per manufacturer.
Round 1’s top-10 race finishers will each score points and receive an automatic invitation to contest Round 2, while the 10 remaining spaces are decided by a subsequent Hot Lap Qualifying competition. The same format determines who qualifies for the remaining three rounds.
A £5 admin fee applies per Hot Lap Qualifying competition.
