Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN prepares for the final Virtual GP
Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN will field a brand-new line-up in the final round of the esports Virtual GP. Ahead of the return of real-life racing in July, the team will feature a previously unseen pairing of Juan Manuel Correa and Aarav Amin in the Canadian Grand Prix, with Daniel Bereznay and Jarno Opmeer returning for the Pro Exhibition race.
After more than three months of virtual action on F1 2019, the final instalment of the popular series, which tallied millions of viewers from all over the world, will play out on the famous Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.
Racer Correa, who competed alongside Antonio Giovinazzi in some of the previous rounds, returns to the team for one final outing, while YouTube star Aarav “Aarava” Amin, part of the Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN esports team management, makes his debut on this stage. Both will be targeting a good result to give the team a positive stand-off ahead of the return of Formula One in Austria.
After a thrilling win in Baku, Jarno Opmeer will be in the cockpit once again as he, alongside Daniel Bereznay, pushes Alfa Romeo Racing in the Pro Exhibition race, the final time we will see F1 Esports stars in an official setting ahead of the season. Having been battling at the front in most of the events so far, the team’s pairing will be hoping for one more positive result.
Sunday’s race will be broadcast live from the Gfinity Esports Arena from 6:00pm (BST) on Sunday 14 June, on the official Formula 1 YouTube, Twitch and Facebook channels as well as Weibo and Huya channels in China.
The F1 Esports Pro Exhibition race will precede the Virtual Grand Prix and is set to begin at 5:00pm (BST). The broadcast will be available on the official Formula 1 YouTube, Twitch and Facebook channels as well as selected TV broadcasters.
