EGE 2016 | Racing Details

As with EGE 2015, this year, if you have a hankering for fast cars, we (both Zombiegamer and TGN Racing Simulators) will have you covered.

Thanks to our sponsors Raru, we will your prize hunger covered too. Up for grabs will be sponsored vouchers as prizes for the daily fastest lap, as well as another voucher for the overall fastest lap of the weekend. Simply having a go will also secure a spot in a random draw for another Raru voucher and then there is also the entry counting towards the random draw for an ASTRO Gaming headset.

Alongside the traditional racing setup, we will add a VR setup too and simply trying that (and completing a lap) will gain you an entry to the random draw.

All this will cost you nothing – other than having access to the expo itself.

The racing will be open all weekend during expo hours and the competitions will close when the expo ends at 4pm on Sunday. The winners will be announced during the course of the week that follows.

The Details

Zombiegamer operates a ‘fair play’ policy. No cheating, abusive language (or abusive actions to anyone at all) and activity deemed unacceptable to an enjoyable, but competitive tournament, will be tolerated. The Admin or Referees decision is final. Anyone who acts in a way not deemed in good spirit or clearly breaking policies will be immediately disqualified from the tournament.

Should you pre-register and arrive late for your scheduled match (attempts to accommodate will be made) your opponent will be issued with a default win. Should that be in the loser’s bracket, you will be eliminated.
