Le Mans Esports

Round 4 of the Le Mans Esports Series took place at the show. The two-hour endurance event comprised both racers qualifying from online and the fastest times created across the four days at the show. Shaun Arnold triumphed and scooped the biggest share of the $10,000 prize pot, with a storming drive from pole position. The Super Final boasts a chance for the winner to take their place on the real-life Le Mans 24 Hours podium and win a share of the $100,000 prize fund. Tobin Leigh finished second and booked his place at the Super Final taking place at the Le Mans 24 Hours this year.

Leigh battled through from 11th place on the grid, having only booked his place in the final the day before, when he was one of two drivers to qualify on the Saturday of the show.

They joined 10 pre-qualified drivers led by Arnold.

"It's a crazy feeling. Coming here yesterday on the Saturday and qualifying was pretty insane. I just came to have fun, I didn't expect to qualify, but I did and it felt great to beat some established racing drivers such as Aston Martin factory driver, Ross Gunn.

"I started the main race from the back row of the grid, again didn't have any expectations, but I found myself climbing all the way to second and securing a spot at Le Mans."
