With more and more virtual racing series sprouting up around the world, organizers are finding ways to make their own eSport event more enticing for both gamers and professional racers. Some, like Formula E’s eSport series, will give the winner the opportunity to drive an actual Formula E car on the track.
The World Rally Championship (WRC) organizers, however, probably has the best prize so far. They will be giving away a brand new Toyota GR Yaris to the 2020 season eSports WRC champion. Even better is that they're giving you a chance to win it.
Yes, you can win an actual Toyota GR Yaris (not the RS variant) by joining the fifth season of the eSports WRC Championship. All you need to do is have a copy of WRC 8 – the official game of the WRC – whether on console or PC to join the tournament. The tournament features numerous special stages used in real-life WRC such as Monte-Carlo, Argentina, and Finland.
“The eSports WRC Championship has grown in stature over the last five years to become one of motorsport’s leading virtual competitions. We’re pleased to welcome the enthusiastic participation of Toyota Gazoo Racing, a WRC manufacturer team, to the tournament,” said Oliver Ciesla, WRC Promoter and managing director.
The 2020 season of the eSports WRC champion is currently on-going with Lebanese competitor Sami-Joe leading. If you do decide to join the tournament now, you still have the chance to take the lead as there are still four rounds remaining in the season and win the GR Yaris. Just don’t forget that you will be going up against some of the best pro players from around the world.
