Munich. The BMW Motorrad Esports Challenge is approaching its final round in 2021 and has a very special highlight in store from 27th September. The RIDE 4 racing game provides motorbike and gaming fans from all over the world with the opportunity to compete against one another and win some attractive prizes. They can also compare their personal best times with those recorded by the riders in the FIM Superbike World Championship, who will be racing at almost precisely the same time on the same circuit, the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portimão, Portugal.

 

BMW Esports is bringing the digital and real motorbike worlds together to round off the BMW Motorrad Esports Challenge 2021. For the third and final time this year, gamers from all around the world have the opportunity to prove their abilities on the virtual BMW M 1000 RR. After events at the British Donington Park circuit and at Suzuka in Japan, the finale of the BMW Motorrad Esports Challenge is now taking participants to Portimão.

 

Whoever posts one of the ten fastest lap times in the RIDE 4 game, which is available on numerous gaming consoles (Playstation 4/5, Xbox One/Series X/S) and on Steam, can look forward to attractive prizes such as a high-quality motorbike helmet. The next Weekly Challenge starts on 27th September and participants may compete as often as they like until 3rd October. The gamers will be able to make use of the top model from BMW Motorrad, the BMW M 1000 RR.

 

The same bike is also in action in the FIM Superbike World Championship. The final round of the BMW Motorrad Esports Challenge 2021 includes a special incentive. This time, the gamers and the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK riders will be competing on the same circuit, the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve in Portimão. This allows everyone taking part to compare their personal lap times with those of the top riders in the WorldSBK, and maybe even to do better than them.

 

To take part in the third round of the BMW Motorrad Esports Challenge, all you have to do is get a copy of RIDE 4 and register on the website, free of charge: https://www.motorsport.bmw-motorrad.com/en/fanzone/esports-challenge/overview.html

 

The winners of the first two Weekly Challenges came from China and Germany.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
