2022 eSports WRC Championship Season Begins on February 4

Hot off the recently released WRC 10 patch, NACON and KT Racing have announced the start of the 2022 eSports WRC Championship season. The competition will be run on WRC 10, the official video game of the FIA World Rally Championship.

The 13-stop calendar starts in Monte-Carlo from February 4-7 before wrapping up in Greece from August 12-15. Along the way, competitors will compete in five new stops to the 2022 calendar: Spain, Belgium, Croatia, Estonia and Greece.

The format will remain the same as in 2021 as the top eight drivers from the regular season will automatically earn a spot in the World Finals, the date and venue of which is yet to be determined. The top 10 results of each player will be taken into account for qualification to the Final.

The WRC eSports Championship is open to all WRC 10 players, giving the biggest racing teams the opportunity to compete again this year. Last year, more than 15,000 players competed in 13 rounds, with a live final from Athens during EKO Acropolis Rally Greece. This year, the Race Clutch, Virtual Best Racing and Team Williams are already registered for the 2022 season, which promises to be a top level competition.

Three-time WRC winner and 2021 champion Lohan ‘Nexl’ Blanc will be competing in the 2022 season alongside his Race Clutch teammates, putting his title back on the line.

“The finals of the 2020 and 2021 championships ended neck and neck with Sami-Joe Abi Nakhle, and I’m looking forward to competing against the best sim racing players on WRC 10, which we tested in the last final in Greece. I’ve had time to train on this new version of the game, the driving sensations on some of the special stages are incredible, sometimes very difficult” says Nexl. “I can’t wait to see what it will be like in competition, with the sometimes complicated weather conditions, it will be very challenging.”
