The Race All-Star Cup: Start time, live stream, driver line-up for today’s Esports event

The Torque Esports event now has a title sponsor and will be known as The Race All-Star Cup – Fully Charged by ROKiT Phones. Now in its fourth week, the virtual racing competition has attracted millions of viewers online as famous motorsport names take on the leading sim drivers.

Jonathan Kendrick, Chairman and Co-Founder of ROKiT said: “Partnering with The Race on the All-Star Esports Battles allows us to continue to race during this time of international shut-down. When we can’t race, we race!

“We have been very impressed by the success of the series already and this collaboration will provide us with another platform beyond our real world motorsports sponsorships from which international awareness for the ROKiT Group of Companies will continue to grow.

“The All-Star Esports Battles have given serious race fans something to cheer and enjoy during these difficult times, so it’s no wonder that audience figures continue to soar.

“At ROKiT we believe in the power of pioneering technology to both entertain and improve personal well-being, which made this opportunity a perfect fit for both ROKiT Phones and ABK Beer.”

Torque Esports CEO Darren Cox said: “We are delighted a brand like RoKiT Phones has chosen to get involved in our All-Star Cup.

“Virtual Racing has filled the void left by the suspension of real-world racing and our decision to pit the best sim racers in the business against their real-world counterparts means this is a very high-level sporting contest and ROKiT’s backing and the number of broadcast partners we are engaged with underlines the excitement and credibility of our product.”

Today’s Esports event consists of three heat races, two for real-world drivers and one for sim racers, with the top five from these races progressing straight to the final.

The real-world racers who don’t make the cut go into the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ), where again the top five progress to complete the final 20-driver grid.
