WRC 8 Esports Team Championship
From February 13rd to February 16th, the second round of the WRC 8 Esports Team Championship took place in Sweden. Although Dieguin237 pulled off an excellent solo result, the situation didn’t change since the first round as Team Mentalism stays for now in 6th position with 6 points on the scoreboard. The next round, in Mexico, will take place from March 12nd to March 16th.
The new MundoGT SF1 season started on February 14th with a race in Silverstone. This beginning appeared to be a disaster for the club, as it only scored 3 points with Yoan finishing P13 and Wauters claiming P16. After this catastrophic start, the mission for the following week was clear : bounce back. On February 21st, the F1 roster indeed bounced back as Wauters sealed the first SF1 podium of the club in Monza, with his teammate vFabii finishing P8 to score great points, moving Team Mentalism into P5 in the SF1 standings. The third round in Spa took place on February 28th. vFabii raced again and managed to score new points as he finished P7, with Yoan claiming P12 as well. After 3 rounds, Team Mentalism is 4th in the SF1 standings, with 49 points. The tight rankings will make the battle for a spot at the SF1 Finals very interesting during the second half of the season.
After ending 2nd in the pre-qualifications, Team Mentalism‘s expectations for this SCE season were quite high. However, things completely did not go to plan. Namely, connection issues and racing incidents did not allow the drivers to show their skills and put their training into practice. The only good points to remember for Team Mentalism for now are the P4 of Lessio in Laguna Seca on February 27th and Sylvain Gauthier claiming P8 in Dragon Trail on February 18th. After 6 rounds, Team Mentalism stands in a poor P12 with 16 points on the board. The drivers will fight hard in the second half of the season in order to avoid the relegation and keep the club’s spot for SCE‘s next season.
Team Mentalism Academy‘s SF2 season began on February 14th with a quite balanced result, scoring 52 points that night and claiming 3rd place in the SF2 standings. The following week showed better results for the academy as it added 77 points to the scoreboard, moving it into 2nd position in the rankings. However, the third round marked a disaster for the academy boys, scoring only 29 points. This now means that the academy is placed 2nd in the SF2 standings with 148 points, with a 70-points deficit from the SF2 leader. The academy will have to level up its game in the second half of the SF2 season if it wants to bring the SF2 title home to France.
