After weeks of intense head-to-head competition, the V10 R-League Grand Final played out this weekend!
For the first time ever, the tournament culminated in a two-day live final at Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi, supported by Miral and Etihad. Drivers from four of the world’s leading sim-racing teams – Team Redline; Yas Heat; R8G Esports; and Mercedes – battled it out in person, as they took to the stage at Yas Mall, marking the return of live LAN competitive SIM racing.
Extensive coverage of every race was aired on BT Sport as part of its bumper weekend of sport, with the Grand Final broadcast live and uninterrupted before the highly anticipated UFC London on Saturday night.
After some action-packed semi-finals on Friday, just two star-studded teams remained, with Mercedes and Redline facing off for £40,000 of the £100,000 prize pot. Redline had prior experience of the final, having won the first season of the V10 R-League, whilst Mercedes were debutants but used to so much success in other motorsport and esports series.
An exhilarating final ultimately ended in a 2-2 draw, but it was Mercedes that won on Team Race point countback!
Congratulations to Mercedes and well done to all of the ten teams and dozens of drivers who have competed in this year’s V10 R-League Championship.
