Plenty of esports competitions are getting underway at the moment, and many are free to enter. For example, you could win a share of €10,000 prize money as the 2021 CUPRA SimRacing Series begins on RaceRoom.
The free-to-play racing sim will host 10 rounds of competition. There will be a hot lap leaderboard for each event with the top 144 drivers qualifying for 6 divisions of racing at each circuit, along with with 56 reserve drivers. Races take place on Thursday evenings with a live broadcast of the top server, and will involve two sprint races and a top 10 reverse grid.
So you can download and play RaceRoom Racing experience for free, and enter the 2021 CUPRA SimRacing Series qualification for nothing. And even if you don’t progress any further, you’ll be able to keep the CUPRA Leon Competicion car for free after the competition has ended, while the car would usually costs £3.45 to download and use.
And it’s a fun car to drive with a 2.0 TSI engine putting out 340hp, a six-speed sequential gearbox and improved aeryodynamics. Which all means speeds of up to 164 miles per hour and 410 Nm of torque to pull out of slower corners.
