The G-Force Challenge: Cape Town

The sweet smell of racing fuel is in the air as we announce to all petrol-heads and Sim gamers the inaugural G-Force Challenge.

November 18, 2013

The sweet smell of racing fuel is in the air as we announce to all petrol-heads and Sim gamers the inaugural G-Force Challenge. The only event that will see racers compete for the title over two racing disciplines in the form of Simulation Racing & Karting, with the prizes valued at over R10 000.

Open to the public, the event will take the racers through a tough qualifying phase, where only the top 10 individuals will make it into the final. Once you¡¦re in the final, you will be set to battle man and machine for the grand prize and The G-Force Challenge Champion title for 2013.

Qualifying:

Each person entering the challenge will be required to set a qualifying lap time during one of the 5x Qualification Heat sessions. You will be allowed 3x laps per entry. Your fastest lap is your ticket to successes. To qualify for the final, your best lap time will need to take one of the top 10-slots available.

Remember, faster times might still be posted that could force you out of the Top-10, so make sure you give it some gas!

If you get displaced from a previous top 10 spot, you may re-enter the challenge to try and set a better time, if any heats are still open for entry.

The Final:

After the final qualify heat sessions, the leader board will be updated to confirm the Top-10 slots. The Top-10 will be contacted by G-ForceSim for confirmation of their qualification for the final, to take place on 21-December at Century Karting, Canal Walk, Cape Town.
