The championship will be open to drivers across Europe and the UK only with all drivers competing on the Alpine A110 GT4. Defending his title during the competition is the winner of the 2021 edition, Jaroslav “Jardier” Honzik. Joining the qualified drivers will be a series of Alpine Academy drivers, celebrities and sim racing influencers, with sim racing broadcaster, Chris Haye, and Alpine Esports Ambassador, Thom Bower, the commentator of the competition.

We see sim racing as being an evolution of sport with the real and virtual worlds offering a natural synergy that can’t be matched in any other esports or sport categories. Sim racing drivers have a natural driving ability and the realism the technology offers between the game Assetto Corsa Competizione and the rigs makes for compelling entertainment. We’re excited to bring the Alpine Esports Series back for a second year and to see the skills of the top drivers and I would like to thank all of our partners for helping to make this year's offering even bigger.
