The third Rising Stars Series Regional Final is here!

The Final for Europe and Africa will see eleven young gaming hopefuls compete for a place in the 2022 MotoGP™ eSport Global Series!

Back for a second season, the Rising Stars Series is gearing up for the Regional Finals that will determine who gets a shot at the 2022 MotoGP™ eSport Championship Global Series.
First started in 2020, this talent-spotting programme required young hopefuls around the world to tackle four Online Challenges in which Gamers are divided into three categories, depending on their location. These three are the Americas, Europe and Africa, and finally Asia and Oceania.
The stakes in the Regional Finals couldn’t be higher, with the winner in each category (the Americas, Asia and Oceania, Europe and Africa) receiving a guaranteed place in the MotoGP™ eSport Pro Draft Selection in 2022.


It's time for the Rising Stars to shine!

The third of the finals to take place will be for Europe and Africa, which takes place on Wednesday 20th October at 18.00 (GMT +2/BCN). The eleven finalists will take on the world-famous Le Mans Circuit in France. The event around the stop-and-go layout will be held over ten laps and decides which competitor prevails to win this final.

Three countries are represented among the eleven hopefuls that will face off, including Italy, Spain and the UK.

The Italian gamer Vindex813 will surely start the European-African heat as favourite after scoring 95 points from a possible 100 in the Online Challenges.
