The penultimate round of the Le Mans Esports Series Pro Team qualification series will be held at Sebring this evening, as the fight for an LMES Super Final slot intensifies.
The LMES Pro Team series is a 16-team invitational championship that takes place over five rounds, with the top six in the standings booking their place in the 2020 LMES Super Final, set to be held at the rescheduled Le Mans 24 Hours in September.
Just five points separate championship leader Lazarus Racing from Red Bull Racing Esports ahead of the Sebring event, which is being staged in the GTE-Pro spec Ford GT.
Lazarus and Red Bull have effectively secured their place in the final, where the three-driver teams will be racing for a share of the $200,000 prize pool, but a $50,000 prize pool for the qualification series means there’s an increased incentive to finish top of the standings.
Each round features two races – a sprint race and a reverse-grid endurance race based on championship standings.
Lazarus has fielded Tobin Leigh, who won the first round of the series at Le Mans, while Red Bull Esports has entered Aurelien ‘Laige’ Mallet.
