The Pro Draft European Selection for the 2019 MotoGP™ eSport Championship saw 36 competitors from Europe aiming to set the fastest lap around 4.2km Le Mans circuit using Miguel Oliveira’s Red Bull KTM Tech 3 RC16.
With players automatically racing in the premier class, it meant that their fastest time over three laps on MotoGP™ machinery would be the ones that count as they fought to qualify for the eSport Championship’s Global Series.
Who was fastest in the European Pro Draft selection?
The format allows players on the Sony PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC compete for a place in the Global Series with the three fastest 9 riders (3 per console) making the cut for the championship’s final stage.
The quickest times and the classified riders from the European Selection for this year Global Series are:
Cristianmm17 | 4’27.099 | PS4 | SPAIN
EleGhosT | 4’27.171 | PS4 | SPAIN
Rllorca | 4’28.138 | PS4| SPAIN
XxBoMbeR_45xX | 4’27.155 | XBOX | SPAIN

Like in the Online Challenges phase where the Spanish rider AdrianDP26 topped the leaderboards by making 5 out 6 best laps, his performance didn’t disappoint during the European Pro Draft Selection by posting the fastest time with a superb lap of 4’25.742.
As witnessed in 2017 and 2018 MotoGP eSport Championship editions, it’s something of a family affair as AdrianDP26 will compete in the 2019 Global Series alongside his brother Cristianmm17.
2018 podium finishers EleGhosT555 & AndrewZh also classified jointly with reigning MotoGP eSport World Champion Trastevere73, who made the final cut thanks to a late lap time on Sunday afternoon.
The cut has been completed with three familiar faces from previous editions - XxBoMbeR_45xX, Rllorca and Juan_nh16 - as well as a new face, Wimp, who hails from Belgium.
The 2019 Pro Draft rider selection may have finished, but there’s no time to rest as one last challenge, held on PC, will take place this week in order to determine which MotoGP™ team each rider will represent. The fastest rider will choose the team he wants to represent first, followed by second fastest and so on but there’s an exception. According to the MotoGP Esports Championship rulebook in the event that the 2018 MotoGP™ eSport Champion becomes one of the twelve 2019 MotoGP™ eSport riders, then the current MotoGP™ eSport Champion will have first pick amongst the other MotoGP™ eSport Riders.
