With the SRO E-Sport GT Series AM Championship about the kick up another gear in the coming couple of weeks, we thought it would be a great idea to host a special edition race around the same circuit used for the opening round of the new championship - and thanks to the generosity of our AM Series broadcast sponsor GT Omega Racing, we will be offering a great GT Omega Classic Wheel Stand to one of our drivers who takes part and finishes the 90 minute race.


The race will be broadcast live and exclusive on our RaceDepartment YouTube channel, so as well as offering a great opportunity to hone your skills around the home of the British Grand Prix and see how you match up the the AM esport qualifiers, you get to showcase your racing prowess in front of the RD YouTube audience!

How Do I Get A Chance To Win The GT Omega Wheel Stand?
Simple. All you have to do is complete the race to be entered in the the prize draw from our AM Series broadcast sponsor GT Omega Racing. Based on your finishing position, each driver will be awarded prize draw 'tokens', with first place earning the most tokens descending to all classified finishes.

3rd = 38 Tokens

Once the race has finished, each driver who crosses the finish line will be placed into a draw to win our headline prize. The winner will be contacted via PM shortly after the conclusion of the event, and announced on the RaceDepartment Social Media channels.
