It seems racing games can finally get a spot back in the eSports world. Formula E in partner with Cloud Sport have announced that they will be hosting a racing competition titled “Road to Vegas.” The competition will feature 20 Formula E drivers as well as 10 of the best virtual racers from around the world battling it out for the biggest prize in eSports history.

The event will take place on January 7th at Las Vegas’s Consumer Electronics Sow (CES). Formula E will pit 20 FIA Formula E drivers against the top 10 qualifiers from the Road to Vegas Championship.

The players will be using Playseat gaming rigs suited with the latest rFactor 2 racing simulator engine. Cloud Sport will be in charge of regulating the event and making sure that the races are as realistic as they can be.

Formula E has just released the full breakdown of the prize pool:

1st place: $200,000

2nd place: $100,000

3rd place: $50,000

4th place: $42,500

5th place: $35,000

6th place: $32,500

7th place: $30,000

8th place: $27,500

9th place: $25,000

10th place: $22,500

11-30th place: $20,000 each

Pole: $25,000

Fastest lap: $10,000

These prizes are so high that even if you place 30th in the event, you are guaranteed to leave with $20,000 in your pocket.


Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag said the following about the tournament in a statement:

“Formula E takes one more giant step in engaging with our fans. Gamers from all over the world will be able to participate in the “Road to Vegas Challenge” and earn themselves the opportunity to race against the Formula E drivers in a unique eRace. All this will take place at CES, the world’s largest technology show, highlighting our commitment to fan engagement through innovation and technology. We believe eSports offers a new level of fan interaction and participation in sport, and we want to be at the forefront of this gaming revolution. Gamers, welcome to Formula E -let’s race!”

This tournament announced comes very soon after the success of the Forza Motorsport Racing Championship that was held last month so it is sure to get the attention of big racing fans, especially with such a large prize pool.
