The second round of the GT World Challenge Asia Esports Championship will take place later today. Asia Pacific won’t see the GT3 sports car championship in real-life until 2021, but we are getting some sim racing in Assetto Corsa Competizione instead.
The field of 89 cars, featuring both real-life pro drivers and sim racers, will be racing in Laguna Seca next. Just like round 1, there will be two sixty-minute races, split between the Real-PRO & AM and Sim-PRO & AM classes.
Where To Watch
The GT World Challenge Asia Esports Championship will be streamed live on the SRO GT World YouTube channel, the GT World Challenge Asia Facebook page as well as on SRO Motorsports Twitch channel. The championship will also be broadcasting on Huya for the audience in China, with native commentary.
