TOYOTA ESPORTS CHALLENGE FOR WRC 9 ANNOUNCED
R60,000 in cash up for grabs in rally action
South Africa, 16 September 2020 – African Cyber Gaming League (ACGL) is pleased to announce the Toyota Esports Challenge played on World Rally Championship 9 (WRC 9).
This series features R60,000 in cash sponsored by Toyota South Africa, and will be operated via the ACGL site.
WRC 9 racers across PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be welcome to submit their stage times over the course of four weeks to secure a place in the cash final. Racers can sign up the Toyota Esports Challenge hub on ACGL, with the first week of submissions already open.
Week one features the Kenya Rally and the Ngema stage. The series will continue elsewhere in the coming weeks.
Each week, a new stage and restrictions will be announced, and racers can submit their times to secure the weekly top spot, and their place in the final showdown on 14 October.
Each week’s submissions will open on Monday at 10h00 and close on Saturday at 22h00. Competitors will be allowed to submit as many times as they want, with only their best time allocated to the leaderboard. All times submitted must be completed with a Toyota Yaris.
Alongside the public submissions will be a separate competition featuring five Toyota Gazoo Racing Drivers, four of South Africa’s top Sim Racers, and six local influencers and celebrities. Every Friday at 8pm on the Toyota SA Facebook page and YouTube channel, as well as the Toyota Gazoo Racing page, you can see how they all perform on the week’s stage.
