Building on the success of previous Logitech G Challenge eracing competitions, Logitech G, a brand of Logitech, and leading innovator of gaming technologies and gear, alongside McLaren, the racing and technology brand and creator of luxury, high performance supercars, today announced the 3rd Annual Logitech McLaren G 2020 Challenge.
Jim Hoey, Head of G Challenge at Logitech G said:
“Over the last few months, we’ve seen an explosion in eracing. It's clear that the line between virtual and real racing has been blurred, and now more than ever people everywhere have access to an incredible racing experience. With the Logitech McLaren G Challenge 2020, we’ve upped the ante. The season has been extended to include even more adrenaline-fueled racing, and the drivers will be battling for bigger prizes. We can’t wait to get started.”
The stakes have been raised for this year's G Challenge. This year’s winner will earn a four-day all-expenses paid trip to London, where they’ll get a behind-the-scenes experience at McLaren including a tour of the McLaren Technology Centre, coaching from Lando Norris, a drive in a McLaren supercar and a VIP experience at the F1 British Grand Prix 2021.
Mark Waller, Managing Director of Sales and Marketing at McLaren Racing said:
“The Logitech McLaren G Challenge 2020 is an incredibly exciting step forward in our successful partnership with Logitech G. G Challenge will continue providing McLaren and Logitech G with a powerful way to connect with our fans and enable more gamers from around the world to share their passion for racing and test their driving skills.”
The Logitech McLaren G Challenge is divided into four divisions -- North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific -- that will each host online qualifiers and/or wildcard events throughout the summer of 2020. The winners of these events will go on to compete in their division’s Regional Finals. The top three racers from each division will then compete in the worldwide Grand Finals.
The Logitech McLaren G Challenge online qualifiers, wildcards and regional finals will all be played on Project Cars 2. Regional Finalists will win a spot in the Grand Final and paid travel for themselves and a guest to the competition.
