The Event will include a cash prize pool to be split amongst the winners. The W3GA HOT LAP qualifiers ended on September 23rd, and the top ten simracers advanced to the grand final, which will take place at the Poznań Game Arena on Saturday, October 7, 2023.

"During the competition, each competitor can complete an unlimited number of fastest hot lap rounds. At the end of the competition, the ten competitors with the best times will be invited to the W3GA PGA RACE final tournament," says Michał Bartczak, CEO of Metapro, the event organizer.

Meanwhile, the W3GA PRO RACE sees professional simracers and simracing fans competing against each other. The tournament consists of two qualifying rounds - with a final round scheduled for September 30th. Twelve participants from each of the qualifying rounds will advance to the grand final.

"The competition will be fierce and extremely exciting. The final will have two separate races with two separate qualifying sessions, and the simracers will compete on two tracks with two different cars. The final result will be based on the points earned in both races, and the winner will receive a cash prize pool," continued Bartczak.

To play in the W3GA HOT LAP and W3GA PRO RACE, you need to register an account on the platform, sign up for the event, accept the terms and conditions, and confirm your participation in the qualifiers.

"Organizing such a large event, lasting over a month, would not be possible without cooperation with many partners from the motorsport, gaming, and esports world. We are excited to collaborate with the ESE team, a company specializing in gaming and esports competitions globally. W3GA showcases the power of all the tools we have been building at Metapro for over two years, all to prove how immense the utility of well-prepared Web3 technology can be in esports, gaming, and even motorsport," says Bartczak.

"Thanks to the use of the Launcher Platform, Metapro has the ability to reach and connect players and creators from all over the world. This global reach increases its value, ensuring availability and exclusivity in various markets and cultures. Every fan of a particular game can participate in the process of creating or developing a game or the ecosystem." added Bartczak.

The Poznań Game Arena is one of the largest entertainment and multimedia events in Central and Eastern Europe, which will take place on the 6-8 of October 2023. Additional events will be organized in the W3GA zone, such as simracing competitions of professional racing drivers with influencers and fans, special challenges for visitors, and a VIP tournament to be played on October 6, 2023. The events will also include guests of W3GA, renowned competitors from the Williams Esports group, Jakub Brzeziński, Nikodem Wiśniewski, and racing driver Karol Basz.
