Your shot at a Trackmania Grand League spot
Each Saturday after a regular season event of TMGL, the Trackmania Open Grand League takes place. The competition is open for everyone and races on the exact same tracks as the pro series. Depending on your performance, you win a certain amount of points for each event.
After all six stages, the eight highest scoring players advance to a shootout event. This is where they meet the bottom eight players of the Trackmania Grand League regular season. The two best OGL players of the combined match will qualify for the next TMGL season.
Submit your tracks for Twitch Rivals: Trackmania
