Mixing Things Up
Formula 1 has often been looking at ways to mix things up when it comes to keeping it’s fans entertained. From different qualifying structures to reverse grids, F1 hasn’t been short of ideas when it comes to engaging audiences with more exciting racing.
The same can be said for Pulse Gaming and the Formula X Championship Series and will be introducing the new Sprint Elimination format for its upcoming race in Spain next Thursday.
How Sprint Elimination Works
Taking from previous game franchises such as Need For Speed, the Sprint Elimination will work by combing the Sprint Race as seen in Imola recently and the knockout qualifying structure we’re accustomed to.
drivers who finish each lap in last position will be “Eliminated” from the race
Drivers will compete in a single, standard timed qualifying session to determine their positions on the grid. They will then take part in a Sprint race which will run for approximately 50km race distance. The difference now being that drivers who finish each lap in last position will be “Eliminated” from the race and instructed to return to the pits no longer being able to continue fighting for positions. The final positions of all the drivers will determine the grid positions for the feature race.
Get On The Grid
The #FXCS22 Esports Racing League is always on the lookout for more drivers to join in and get on the grid, whether it be at the lounge on the F1 racing simulators or racing from home on your own sim-rigs. Details about the event and how to join the server can be found at Formula X Championship Series 2022 – Round 5 – Spain GP.
