Precisely two weeks after the inaugural Legion Of Racers Esports Championship race at the Red Bull Ring, over 30 participants signed up for Round 2, a significant increase from Round 1. Of the 30 participants, 27 managed to get into the Qualifying Stage, this time travelling to the iconic Nurburgring Grand Prix Circuit.
Participating for the very first time in an esports competition, this writer along with 12 other participants who managed to compete in the Qualifying Stage however, failed to make it into the top 14.
Qualifying in pole position with a lap time of 1.54:004 was GTIC_RamStig, with MiorHafix a mere three-tenths of a second behind in second position. Making the final cut to the top 14 amongst all who competed was Kirasama_882, who qualified with a 1.55:780 lap time. It isn’t hard to imagine how competitive the racing truly was, given that all 14 participants were within a 1.7 seconds bracket.
The thirty-minutes 14 lap race concluded with MiorHafix in first place, GTIC_RamStig in second and Round 1 winner LMP_LuisMoreno finishing in third.
Both live streaming of the full race and highlights videos are available below. Do stay tuned to Legion Of Racers and 9tro for more updates, and prepare yourself as Round 3 at Fuji Speedway happens this coming Friday, 7th July 2019!
