The upcoming opening round of the new SRO E-Sport GT Series takes one step closer with confirmation of the PRO and SILVER category drivers set to appear in Monza.
The new SRO E-Sport GT Series, set to take place at the opening round of the 2019 Blancpain GT category at the Monza Eni Circuit in Italy this weekend, has taken one step closer today. Following an intense online leaderboard challenge, the talented sim racers who have qualified for a place on the SILVER starting grid by way of producing a top 12 fastest lap time during the online qualification period of the series have now been finalised.
As well as these 12 qualifying drivers, a selection of some of the top eSport racing teams will be represented in the opening round at Monza, with the 12 PRO invitational drivers now also confirmed for what should be an exciting first weekend of the new season.

With both PRO and SILVER drivers now confirmed, it just remains for the final 12 drivers to produce a laptime on site fast enough to put them in contention for a place on the Round One AM starting grid. Following respective races in each category, the top four drivers of all three categories will combine to race for the chance of standing on the real Blancpain GT Series podium, and of course qualifying for the season ending final round - and a money can't buy opportunity with Lamborghini for the eventual series champion.
