Track layout revealed for Formula E Vegas eRace
The track layout has been revealed for Saturday’s Formula E Vegas eRace that will see gamers and big-name drivers battle for a $1 million prize pool.
The 20-strong Formula E grid will go up against 10 of the world’s finest sim racers in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, with a top prize of $200,000 on offer to the winning driver.
The 10 gamers have each been assigned a team to work with in recent weeks, allowing them to train with the full-time Formula E drivers and pass on their knowledge of the virtual racing world.
Although all of the drivers have been completing sim runs using rFactor 2, the game that will be raced on, in order to add an extra challenge to proceedings, the track layout was only made public on Friday ahead of practice.
The circuit is 3.1 virtual miles long and incorporates many of Las Vegas’ most famous landmarks, including the Luxor and MGM Grand.
