All Sim racing drivers demonstrated a healthy competitive spirit and maintained this until the finals to ensure competition in all races. I congratulate the winners, Mohamad Ibrahim and Davleesh Singh on their fantastic achievement and support in bringing the trophy home. I would also like to thank INOX, IR Esports and IISM for their wonderful support and for making this event possible,” said Lokesh Suji, Director of the Esports Federation of India and Vice President of the Asian Sports Confederation.
The duo will now represent India in the prestigious tournament and battle players from teams such as Thailand, Chinese Taipei, Uzbekistan, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Syria and Sri Lanka in the Asian Continental Qualifiers scheduled for July 26-29. There are two places given to the Asian Continent in the Grand Finals, and the two winners of the Asian Continental Qualifiers will earn a place in the World Finals to be held in Monaco.
The International Esports Federation and the Federation of Esports of Monaco are jointly organizing the Sim Racing World Cup, which will feature one of the world’s most popular sim racing titles, the Assetto Corsa.
There are a total of 39 countries participating in the Continental Qualifiers for the Sim Racing World Cup 2022 and only the top 12 countries will go to Monaco! The NESC Grand Final included a total of two races with the winner determined based on the total points accumulated from both races.
Ibrahim started first in the first race and held that position throughout the race thanks to his great drive. The second race started in reverse order for the top eight teams, with Davlic taking the lead, followed by Ibrahim.
With Abraham and Davlish tied with 43 points each in the top game, they both emerged as joint winners of the national playoffs.
“This is an excellent opportunity to represent your country on an international platform. Winning the playoffs among 250 players overall gives me great satisfaction and feels like a huge achievement but also increases the pressure of doing well in the next stage for me. Without a doubt,” said an elated Ibrahim, who also won the McLaren Challenge Logitech G earlier this year said, “I will be training a lot to do the best for my country with the continental qualifiers coming up as well.”
Davlish, who has been playing Sim racing since 2019, added: “I think this was one of the biggest sim racing events in India, however ESFI gave participants from all over the country a chance to fight for a place to represent their country in on the international stage. The event was organized Very well with some fast, competitive and fair racing from all the top drivers. The dual sprint formats with reverse grids made the races even more exciting.”
