The ROK Cup Sim Challenge has been delayed by a week, but the program has been added to the World’s Fastest Gamer program where someone will win a $1 million prize and real-world race opportunity in 2021.
Organisers have consciously delayed the start of the first virtual series due to potential competitors experiencing delays in delivery of sim racing equipment caused by the recent massive update in sim racing.
The ROK Cup Sim Challenge will now commence April 27th.
Additionally, the ROK Cup Sim Challenge has been added to the World’s Fastest Gamer program.
Each ROK Cup Sim Challenge Champion who is 16 years old or over with valid driver’s license, will have the chance to enter into America’s Fastest Gamer with the opportunity to advance to the World’s Fastest Gamer and compete for the $1 million prize and real-world race opportunity in 2021.
“With the delay comes some advantages to registered participants,” explained Garett Potter.
“Registered and confirmed participants will now be able to test all week and do so on the ROK Cup platform.
“Working together with Mike Maurini, we opened up to ask our customers what they wanted, and the overwhelming majority asked for practice time on the NOLA track, while several other registered participants are waiting on equipment.”
With track locations for rounds two and three now confirmed, Sonoma Raceway and Charlotte Motor Speedway, registered participants will be able to practice at NOLA Motorsports Park beginning Monday at 10:00am CST.
“Practice will open for confirmed drivers on Monday morning and the ROK Cup version of the game will be live,” added RTD Media’s Mike Maurini.
“Drivers who have registered, been confirmed and provided their SteamID64 will automatically be entered to the Torque Esports server and will have the chance to drive their ROK branded kart at NOLA Motorsports Park, to prepare for the first ever ROK Cup Sim Challenge. Equipment checks will take place Friday, April 24th at 6:00pm CST.”
