There will be four more races at legendary circuits all over the world. The Real Race will head to Spa, the Nürburgring, Suzuka and conclude its first stage in Laguna Seca on August 2.

Esports racing manager owns Monza

Round 1 at Monza saw a very well-known name winning the race. Nils Naujoks came out on top. He has been a professional esports racer in various games since 2003. But he has been taking part in fewer competitions recently because he is currently working as a manager at G2 Esports’ racing team.

However, Naujoks was still able to use his experience to win the race at Monza. The podium was completed by Arnaud Lacombe and Matthias Egger.

Winning a VIP tour to Italy

The top three drivers from Monza and Laguna Seca, as well as the top two drivers from the remaining races will be invited to the grand final. The live event will be held at September 18 in the Lamborghini headquarters in Sant ’Agata Bolognese, Italy.
