Toyota Esports WRC9 Season 2 details
There are four tournaments in total for the Toyota Esports WRC9 Season 2 series. One for each platform, namely PC, PlayStation and Xbox, and one Pro tournament. Players will compete to set the best times possible in the Toyota GR Yaris.
The entire competition spans 12 weeks, with eight stages to master. Time submissions open up on 30 August 2021. You can head on over the WRC9 Season 2 page on The Toyota Gaming Engine now to register. Registration is completely free of charge, by the way.

Following the eight weeks of racing, the top eight players from each platform will compete in a semi-final on 25 October 2021. These eight will be whittled down to the final four, which will compete in the final on their respective platform on 1 November 2021. Each of the three platforms, as well as the "Pro" division, will have a prize pool of R17,500 to race for!
