Four World Final tickets snatched up

Four more drivers have confirmed their spots in the eSports WRC World Final Presented by AGON by AOC, where they will join the already qualified Sami-Joe.

Izamusing, Kazunakota, Nexl and Zeniou secured their places in next month’s World Final following the conclusion of a dramatic Rally Finland on Monday (01 August).

Following an official review at the completion of the penultimate round, a number of drivers were deemed to have used illegal cuts, leading to their disqualification from Finland. This included the already-confirmed regular season MVP Sami-Joe and three-time world champion Nexl.

Katana was the main benefactor, vaulting up the leaderboard to claim victory and come within a whisker of also securing a ticket to September’s televised final in Athens. He now only needs eight points from the final round to absolutely secure a spot but could also still qualify without scoring at all should results go in his favour.

Three tickets are up for grabs on the final round from 12-15 August, with action taking place on the gravel roads of Greece.
