First round results

For the Junior Class (players 17 years old and below), the e-race was held at Monza tracks which seem like a playground for competitors. The first place was won by Russel Cabrera who maintained his lead until the last minute of the race. He is followed by David Marquez in second and John Paul Veloso in third place.

Moving to the Promotional Class (non-professional e-racers), the top spot is claimed by Jether Miole who managed to widen the gap from the other competitors. He came out in the e-Motorsport Series to show everyone that he has what it takes to take his talents to the next level.

And as for the Sporting Category (with professional e-sports experience), returning racer Terrence Lallave made a strong comeback and ended up at the top of the competition. The second place is clinched by Luis Moreno, while the third place is grabbed by Estefano Rivera who also raced the recent real-life track Vios Cup.
