Acer today announced that registration for its Predator Race Cup 2022 is now open until 12th May. Operated on the AssettoCorsa platform, participation is not limited purely to aspiring sim racers, but also fans of motorsports, gamers and enthusiasts.
Entry to the regional Predator Race Cup in the Middle East will be determined by a hot-lap qualifying time. The top 26 drivers with the fastest lap time will compete in a 30-minute regional final. The top two podium winners from the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan & Iraq will be invited to the International Final on June 14th racing against other national podium winners from 24 countries. The champion of the International Final will win an exclusive “once in a lifetime” experience to join the R8G eSports team for one year as rookie and learn from the best.
“After the success of the first Predator Race Cup in 2021, we keep inventing our own eSports formats now and in the future. Partnering since 2020 with Romain Grosjean – a professional motorsport athlete, entrepreneur, founder of R8G eSports, and supporter of eSports – Acer continues to support the gaming community by developing new talent at a grassroot level,” said Hajo Blingen, Vice President, Acer EMEA Marketing. “With sim racing primed for continued growth, we are extremely proud to continue working in close collaboration with the R8G eSports team and top retailers in multiple countries across the EMEA region.”
