Event details

The Alpine Esports Series was started in 2021 to provide a platform for the greatest sim racers across the world to showcase their racing ability to a mass audience. Last year the live broadcasts were watched by over 250,000 people and viewership continues to increase year on year.

A total of 35 extremely talented drivers will race Alpine A110 GT4 cars across six races on three different race tracks on Assetto Corsa Competizione. The other two circuits will be Silverstone (May 11th, 19:30 BST) and Circuit Ricardo Tormo (May 25th, 19:30 BST). Each of the three days will include an Endurance race followed by a Sprint race immediately after.

The winner will not only receive $25,000 worth of Alpine Fan Tokens, they will also be rewarded with $3,000 worth of $QANX tokens, and a chance to step into a real Alpine A110 GT4 car in an exclusive driving and coaching experience.

Top-of-the-range sim racing hardware will be handed out to the top ten finishers in the series, courtesy of Alpine Esports’ partners. This includes a Trak Racer Alpine Racing TRX Sim Rig and an ADEPT gaming chair among others.

The live action will be shown here on Grand Prix 247, as well as Binance Live and Alpine’s YouTube and Twitch channels.
