Time to start the 2021 Rising Stars Series! Are you ready?

The Rising Stars Series, aimed at finding the gaming stars of the future starts this week. Do you have what it takes?

The MotoGP™ eSport Rising Stars Series kicks off this week in a bid to find and promote some of the brightest and youngest gaming talent across the globe.

These three are the Americas (North and South), Europe and Africa, and finally Asia and Oceania.

eSport Rising Stars: Assen at the ready for first challenge

The first of these Challenges starts on Thursday 1st July at 11.00am CET and requires gamers to take on the historic TT Circuit Assen, a Dutch venue steeped in motorsport tradition and history. The Challenge runs until Sunday 4th July.

The event will be disputed in time attack mode and the gamers who achieve the fastest lap times will be awarded points. It’s time to take risks and put it all on the line as only the fastest lap times count!

If Assen’s 18 fast turns seem daunting, your job will be made all the more interesting by the choice of machine: each gamer will use Francesco ‘Pecco’ Bagnaia’s Ducati Desmosedici GP21 to set their fastest lap time. So sign up, get started and let’s get on track!
