Welcome to the second round of eSports WRC and the snowy, icy and slippery roads of Rally Sweden!
For this event, the players had to run 4 stages, including the well-known Karlstad Super Special Stage and the famous Vargasen, featuring the iconic Colin’s Crest jump challenge!
Hours of training paid off again for the leading Monte Carlo trio, composed of Nexl, Speedbooster27 and Hesto, with less than a 2 seconds difference on the podium.
But this time Nexl took the lead with an excellent 13:00.765. It seems that the flying Frenchman is highly motivated to take his revenge after last year’s final, where he got penalties and missed the podium by just a few seconds.
In second position, just 1.085s behind, is the German competitor Speedbooster27, playing on PC and collecting 18 points on this round. He’s followed closely by Hesto, the Monte Carlo winner, with a 0.798s difference after more than 13 minutes of intense battle.
In 4th and 5th position respectively, we find the new British entrant, Car ChemicaL, and the excellent aTTaX Johnson, the current and first eSports WRC champion, who missed the Monte Carlo event.
At the end of this second round then, Nexl takes the lead of the Championship with a total of 43 points, followed by Hesto on 40 and Speedbooster27 on 33. The battle between these three drivers is intense and we can’t wait to see what will happen in the next round, the first gravel event of the Championship season, Rally Mexico from 09/03 to 12/03.
