ROC Riyadh brings together the real and virtual racing worlds in the first ever eRace Of Champions contest, created in association with Logitech G.
McLaren World’s Fastest Gamer Rudy van Buren has already been invited to race in the main ROC event as champion of the ‘virtual world’. On Friday four more of the planet’s leading simracing specialists – including the first F1 esports champion Brendon Leigh – will also compete for a chance to race on track against some of the world’s greatest drivers, joining forces with Rudy for Team Simracing All Stars in the ROC Nations Cup.
The virtual racers will compete both on the new ROC track in racing game Assetto Corsa and in real ROC competition cars on the ROC Factor Skills Challenge Course and the main ROC Parallel Track.
Later in the day Team Simracing Allstars will join the field to compete in the ROC Nations Cup against F1 stars, Indy 500 winners, Le Mans legends and Rally X greats including David Coulthard, Juan Pablo Montoya, Tom Kristensen, Petter Solberg, Lando Norris, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Josef Newgarden and Helio Castroneves.
