Esports Champion shocks in RoC

The past weekend saw the annual Race of Champions take place.

However, this year, there was a new star in the mix, alongside staple names such as Sebastian Vettel, who stars in the F1 series.

Enzo Bonito, winner of the E Race of Champions, was given the opportunity to race in the real thing, racing against Formula E champion and former F1 driver Lucas Di Grassi.

The result was... interesting!

I didn't quite understand the hostility in the replies to the result however, especially seeing Motorsport is clearly one of the cases where skills may transfer over.

What do you think?

I didn't get it. Were one of them in a electric car and the other in one with combustion engine?

#1 The car used in this specific race was the VUHL 05, a Mexican sports car. Fitting, as it the event was held there. Each driver has the same kit available to them, so they were both using a combustion engine this time round!

So the conditions were the same for both drivers?

Yeah, that is correct!
