World’s Fastest Gamer to offer largest prize pool in eSports racing
Season Two is proving to be even more exciting than Season 1
The Season Two of The World’s Fastest Gamer (WFG) eSports competition is going to see participation by ten of the fastest racers from around the world. They will all be vying for position, and the ultimate checkered flag, to get behind the wheel in real races at some of the most famous circuits across the globe. The winner will take home a prize package worth over $1 million.
The competition finalists will be submitted to rigorous testing trials in the UK and the top six will then head to R-Motorsports’ HQ in Switzerland. There, the top through will have to undergo four days of challenges and complete an on-track shootout at the Hockenheim finale. The tournament champ will be allowed in as a professional driver to race Aston Martins with the R-Motorsports group on tracks including Brands Hatch, Dayton 24 Hours, Paul Ricard, Monza and Nurburgring.
The performances will be judged by WFG Season One winner Rudy Van Buren and head judge Juan Pablo Montoya. Montoya has won several top races, including the Monaco Grand Prix, the Indy 500 and the Daytona 24 Hours, and is a perfect selection to decide the winner. He asserts, “I have raced online for several years and use simulators to stay sharp. I know there is huge talent in the virtual world because gamers regularly beat me! I know the skills between real and virtual are transferable, so my job on WFG is to make sure these gamers are hungry and perform under pressure.”
Van Buren is also a good pick. After winning Season One, he went on to become a simulator driver for Formula 1 and has been featured on ESPN, Fox, CNBC and others.
