F1 Esports: The Race All-Star Cup and Legends Trophy – start times, live stream, drivers

The Race All-Star Series – Fully Charged by ROKiT Phones has become a championship. The Esports event was set up last month by The Race’s parent company Torque Esports to fill the void left by motorsports being called off due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Torque Esports CEO Darren Cox said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for our sport to establish the esports genre as a legitimate form of entertainment for fans around the world.

“It’s also a potentially lucrative first step for new competitors to get involved in the sport without ever having to leave their homes.”

The All-Star Cup 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.

Points will be scored on a 35-30-26-24-22-20-19-18-17-etc basis for the 20 racers in each All-Star Cup final as competitors bid to be crowned the inaugural champion.

The Legends Trophy is the sister event to The Race All-Star Cup – Fully Charged by ROKiT Phones.

What time does the Esports event start?

The action gets underway at 5pm BST with the Legends Trophy being followed by the All-Star Cup.
