Divison 1 Finals

Matthew McEwen

1st Place

Dominated the online season and won both live races to achieve first place

Lewis Atkinson

2nd Place

Ran clean and controlled races in the live finals after a mid-pack result in the online season, seemingly the only person who could challenge McEwen after qualifying 0.007 behind him in the live time trial shootout

Mathew Smith

3rd Place

Ran a consistent and successful online season but was beaten out by Atkinson in the live finals

Divison 2 Finals


1st Place


2nd Place


3rd Place

Blindman dominated the online season for Division 2, winning all but one race. Pukeko, who was possibly the only competitor to compete using VR for the entire season, had some excellent results to finish second, ahead of ClanFever who ran solid races all season, as well as hosting the Div2 lobbies

Divison 3 Finals


1st Place


2nd Place


3rd Place

This division was a nailbiter, with SteamedHamz taking an early lead in the competition only to be unseated by Phreelickz with a dominant round two and Sardegna. They went at it hammer and tong all season, and it seemed SteamedHamz had the upper hand until he was absent from the final round, netting Phreelickz a smattering of unanswered points, which cost SteamedHamz the season win. Daraygun, through consistency and solid results close to and on the podium, was able to secure third for the online season, and best of the rest.

The Run Down

Anyone from New Zealand can register and race online from the comfort of their own homes (or local gaming lounges) to both qualify, and compete in their Division!

The top 15 racers are placed into Division 1, the next 15 in Division 2, and so on. 

All the divisions will race over the following 6 weeks to determine the final rankings. 

The top 10 racers in division 1 are invited to race at in person at Respawn Esports Centre, with prizes for the top 3 racers.

Each of the six rounds, and the Live Finals, will be broadcast to a global audience on the Respawn Esports Centre Twitch channel, complete with commentary and interviews. 

The competition has completed for 2023 but will be back in 2024!
