Ferrari has officially started up their registration for the Ferrari Velas Esports Series 2022 Championship, which you can enter via Ferrari’s official website. Participants will be competing on both Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione. On top of that, North American sim racers can get in on their own regional competition that will run parallel alongside the returning European regional contest.
To enter, hot lap pre-qualifying competitions start on April 4th and go until September 6th. There will be eight unique circuits to lap on throughout either simulation platform. The top 24 qualifiers per region for each will move on to a qualifying race, and the top three finishers in each qualifying race will advance to the Regional Finals. 24 North American drivers and 24 European drivers will then race in two events in the regional finals, one race on AC and the other on ACC. The top three overall in each region will then qualify for the Grand Finale, where all finalists will be flown to Italy to determine the overall champion. That champion will then have the opportunity to become a part of the official Scuderia Ferrari Velas Esports Team.
For the original Assetto Corsa events, racers will utilize the Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo. In the Assetto Corsa Competizione races, they will use the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020
The Regional Finals will take place on September 13th and 14th, while the Grand Finale will take place on October 2nd.
