Si svolgeranno questa sera, dalle ore 20 italiane, le semifinali del torneo McLaren Shadow Project. Presso il McLaren Technology Centre, in Inghilterra, si sfideranno otto piloti, gareggiando su Project Cars 2, rFactor 2, Real Racing 3, Forza Motorsport 7 ed iRacing, ma solo i primi tre guadagneranno l'accesso alle finalissime che si disputeranno in Gennaio 2019.

The eight contestants were selected via our series of qualifiers, held between August and November. They comprise three Logitech G Challenge finalists, three Real Racing 3 winners and two finalists from Forza Motorsport 7:
Our three Logitech G Challenge contestants are Igor Fraga, who won at Brazil Games Show; Kristian Kwietniewski, who triumphed at Paris Games Week and Kazuki Cho, who won the APAC qualifiers.
Real Racing 3
We welcome back Henrik Drue, who was such a notable presence at last year’s McLaren finals. He’s joined by Lasse Wiman and Gregoire Forret.
Forza Motorsport 7
Our most recent qualifier finished in November and we welcomed Numa Natali from Italy and Miguel Ballester from Spain. Four tenths separated them in qualifying for the semi-finals, but who will emerge fastest this week?
Over the course of the evening, these eight contestants will be whittled down to just three. One winner from each of the three competition streams – Logitech, Real Racing and Forza – will then go on to contest January’s finals alongside four independently qualified racers, whose path to the finals came via the rFactor 2, Atyaf eRacing, iRacing and HTC Vive qualifiers.
Our semi-finalists will be tested over a series of racing challenges, competing at legendary tracks in iconic McLaren machinery:
They begin on Real Racing 3, racing at Hockenheim in the 600LT. They then switch to rFactor 2, at Silverstone, driving 1993’s MP4-8 Formula 1 car. Then it’s Forza Motorsport 7, at the mighty Spa-Francorchamps circuit in the McLaren P1 GTR.
The semis will wind up with two further contests – at Monza, driving the 720S in Project Cars 2, then, finally, competing on iRacing, racing Austin’s Circuit of the Americas with the feisty 12C GT3 car.
Each race will last about 20 minutes, and the contestants will quickly switch from platform to platform, so there’ll be plenty of action to keep you on the edge of your seat all evening.
