F1 Esports Series: torneo ufficiale online di Formula 1

Recommended Posts

VELOCIPEDE

Il simracing è ormai sotto i riflettori, c'era da aspettarsi quindi che anche la Formula 1 lanciasse il suo torneo ufficiale. La F1 Esports Series, questo il nome dell'evento, sarà un torneo curato direttamente da Codemasters e Gfinity, con l'ovvio utilizzo del prossimo F1 2017: a settembre inizieranno le qualificazioni che selezioneranno 40 semifinalisti che si sfideranno il 10/11 ottobre a Londra presso la sede di Gfinity, mentre la finale a 20 partecipanti avrà luogo ad Abu Dhabi in concomitanza con l’ultimo Gran Premio della stagione F1.

Il 24/25 Novembre le finalissime si svilupperanno su tre gare. Il vincitore, oltre ad ottenere la qualificazione automatica per le semifinali del 2018, vincerà l’opportunità di assistere a un weekend di gara della prossima stagione e sarà inserito come personaggio nel videogioco 2018. Sean Bratches, responsabile commerciale della F1, ha commentato: “A livello di partecipazione la F1 Esports series rappresenta una grandissima opportunità per chiunque di entrare a far parte della F1 e per noi ha un potenziale a livello di business tutto da scoprire”.

Tutti i dettagli sono ancora da scoprire, ma sappiamo già che i partecipanti potranno utilizzare come piattaforme per F1 2017 la PlayStation 4, l’Xbox o il PC. Si tratta di un progetto a lungo termine che dimostra quanto ormai il motorsport reale tenga in considerazione, se non altro, le potenzialità commerciali di un settore che fino a qualche anno fa era considerato unicamente ludico ed a sè stante.

Come già sapete, il secondo turno di qualificazione del torneo ufficiale F1 eSports Series con F1 2017 Codemasters si svolge sul circuito di Suzuka con la Red Bull di Verstappen e Ricciardo. Proprio il sito Red Bull ha pubblicato oggi una utilissima guida per regolare al meglio l'assetto della RB13: correte a questo link per scoprire tutti i segreti per un setup ottimale!

1. Wing angles

With the key areas of Suzuka being the infamous S curves at the beginning of the lap and the high speed 130R near the end of the lap, I went with a front wing angle of 6 and a rear wing angle of 7 in order to keep the car planted onto the racetrack, while keeping the levels of drag to a minimum.

Just 20 drivers will go through to next month's Grand Final The F1 Esports Series is a partnership between Formula 1, the world’s premier motor sport; Codemasters, the leading racing game developer and publisher; and Gfinity, the global leader in esports events and competitions.

The 40 semi-finalists reached the London event through a series of qualifying rounds held over the past few weeks on the F1™ 2017 game using the famous Monza and Suzuka circuits. Ten of the 40 qualified online through the PS4 platform, 10 through the Xbox One and 10 via PC Windows. Nine drivers reached the semi-finals from the F1 2017 Affiliated leagues, held using all platforms, while the 40th semi-finalist is a wildcard entry, selected by a vote from an independent panel, including former F1 driver David Coulthard, based on ability, skill and knowledge of esports.

A total of 63,827 drivers took part in the qualifying stages, completing 976,870 laps. Over 195,000 race times were posted on the official leaderboards at f1esports.com.

“We are very pleased to see how successful this first edition of the F1 Esports Series has been,” said Frank Arthofer, Director of Digital and New Business at Formula 1. “The number of participants exceeded our initial predictions, which confirms how much interest there is in Formula 1 within esports, a sector that is undergoing phenomenal growth. We can’t wait for the semi-finals in London to produce the fastest 20 competitors who will go on to battle for the first ever F1 Esport Series World Championship title.”

The semi-finals will consist of four heats and will use the Silverstone and Interlagos circuits. The top five finishers in each heat will progress to the Grand Finals, which will take place at Yas Marina as part of the 2017 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on November 24-26. At the end of a three-race event, the first Formula 1 Esports World Champion will be crowned on the same weekend as the final 2017 Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Alongside the pride and prestige of being the first ever champion, the winner will also be the Formula 1 Esports Champion Expert for 2018 and will automatically qualify for the semi-finals of next year’s Esports Series.
