PETALING JAYA: After last year’s successful debut of eRacing GP’s online competitions, Axle Sports returns with Global Edition 5 today where simulator and real racing drivers from around the region will compete.

Competitors will be handling different cars in four categories – Gold, Silver, Bronze and Copper.

Under the Gold and Silver categories, they will be behind DTM 2016’s modified supercars from Mercedes, BMW and Audi.

Bronze drivers will compete in Formula 3 single seaters while in the Copper category for beginners, they will compete in a less modified Aquila CR1 car.

Axle Sports founder and former Formula One driver Alex Yoong was impressed with the quality of the drivers in previous races.

“After the success of the eRacing GP Malaysia championship, we had always planned to do more online racing. Ironically, Covid-19 forced us to adapt quickly. We are really pleased with the quality and have witnessed massive improvement in their driving skills and professionalism.

“Let’s also not forget our tagline of #virtualtoreality in that we try to realise the dreams of our participants in getting them into real race cars one day, ” said Alex.

The winner or most promising driver online will be trained by Axle Sports to race, and hopefully compete on a real track.

They will also receive prizes from Royal Selangor and exclusive eRacing GP shirts.

Competitors will undergo qualifying rounds on RaceRoom through weekly leaderboards which open on Mondays and closed on Thursdays.
