Motorsport UK starts Assetto Corsa Competizione Hot Lap Challenge

Motorsport UK – the governing body for all four-wheel motorsport in the UK – recently launched an esports hub to educate and engage potential sim racers in this sometimes intimidating hobby.

As well as esports series and one-off races – such as the ROKiT British F4 Esports Championship and the Buttkicker Britcar 24h of Silverstone – Motorsport UK today (6 April 2023) announced a Hot Lap Challenge featuring Assetto Corsa Competizione and tickets to the British GT Championship, IMB Racewear products and ButtKicker controllers with haptic feedback available as prizes.

To participate, players must register for the event on the SimGrid sim racing platform and become a paid member of the Motorsport UK Esports Hub for 12 months for £24.99. Members enjoy discounts from Motorsport UK’s brand partners and access to exclusive esports events, and counting. Non-members can still participate but will not be eligible to receive prizes.

The ROKIT British F4 Esports Championship had a prize pool of £6,000

After three weeks of hot laps at three different British circuits, the fastest driver will receive four hospitality tickets to one of the two Silverstone rounds of the 2023 British GT Championship, as well as a ButtKicker Gamer Pro. There are also weekly prizes for the fastest driver in each lap.

The first round begins on April 10th at 9:00am BST at the Brands Hatch Grand Prix, with players free to choose any of the available GT3 cars. Rounds 2 and 3 then see the competition move to the Donington Park GP and Silverstone Grand Prix Circuits respectively.
