Keithley and Högfeldt battle it out for the $20,000 E1 Championship prize pool

The E1 Championship, starring star drivers Jack Keithley and Christopher Högfeldt, begins today with a $20,000 prize pool.

Led by ex-Minardi Formula One driver Alex Yoong, the E1 Championship returns today (September 7, 2022) with participating drivers competing for a $20,000 prize pool.

Using Sector 3 Studios’ RaceRoom simulation, the E1 Championship has evolved as an esports competition for drivers from the Asia Pacific region. For his fourth incarnation, however, there will be an influx of European talent including Jack Keithley, Christopher Högfeldt, Bence Bánki and Moritz Löhner (missing in Round 1) among others.

The European contingent has extensive experience in the RaceRoom, with Keithley, the reigning REMUS GT3 Champion, Högfeldt, the ADAC GT Masters Esports Champion and Löhner, a multiple champion in both DTM Esports and ADAC GT Masters Esports.

Top European teams Williams Esports and TX3 will also join the fray, and real-world racing teams Mumbai Falcons – who won the Formula Regional Asia Championship with Arthur Leclerc – and Black Arts Racing will also return.

Other notable entries include the Azlan brothers – Naquib and Nabil – driving for SEM9. The pair raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual earlier this year, with Naquib’s SEM9 Flash Axle team taking an impressive fourth place overall.

Can reigning team champions Team Flash and defending champion Muhammad Ibrahim hold off the European newcomers with RaceRoom’s new Formula Raceroom X22 car? With seven rounds in seven weeks, it will be an intense battle to the checkered flag.

Sanctioned by the Motorsports Association of Malaysia, the 2022 E1 Championship begins today at 14:00 BST/21:00 MYT/15:00 UTC at the Sepang International Circuit. The races will be streamed live on the E1 Championship Facebook page and YouTube channel.
