WELCOME TO THE FERRARI ESPORTS SERIES 2024!

This year's competition promises to be an exhilarating journey for both seasoned sim racers and newcomers alike. In this prestigious event, drivers will battle it out in their chosen sim racing discipline for a chance to secure a coveted spot on the official Ferrari Esports Team. With Ferrari's unwavering support, participants from all backgrounds have the opportunity to showcase their skills in their preferred sim racing game across three regions.

Furthermore, the Grand Final, the final stage of the competition, will see drivers competing across all three sim racing titles: Assetto Corsa Competizione, Assetto Corsa, and iRacing. This ultimate showdown will determine the series champion and culminate in an exciting on-site event later this year. This adds an extra layer of excitement and prestige to the competition, as drivers vie for the title in a thrilling real-world setting.
