New format, 40 top teams: The Simracing.GP Professional Trophy 2022

While the SimRacing Community Trophy is already underway, the Simracing.GP Professional Trophy will soon follow: The Esports competition in Assetto Corsa Competizione, the final of which will be held at the ADAC SimRacing Expo 2022, will be open to 40 invited professional teams as well Offer qualifying – it’s about no less than a total of 10,000 euros in prize money.

After using two qualifying races to lead to the final in 2021, the Professional Trophy’s format is going to change significantly in 2022: 40 of the best esports teams in the world are entered into the event via an invite, a further ten will be added after two open qualification rounds where the top five of each respective race make it to the championship races. Any teams that did not qualify for the championship in the first qualifying event is free to give it another shot in the second one. Teams consist of three drivers each.

The Simracing.GP platform forms the basis for this: all the competition, including the qualifying rounds, will be organized via SGP, so it will be easier than ever to keep track of the events, the standings and more. All information about the Simracing.GP Professional Trophy can also be found on the event’s official Discord server.

After the qualifying rounds, four of races are scheduled to be held before ADAC SimRacing Expo 2022, with the on-site final being the fifth. The PRO and QUALIFIER (QUAL) classes are going to share the track at the first four races, and the QUAL class leaders will get the chance to represent Simracing.gp in the final in Nuremberg.
