Two new activities will make the championship even more exciting, and among these we find the possibility for all registered players to participate in theprize draw whose winners will be announced during the streams. Space also for most creative: a “livery contest”Thanks to which the participants will have the opportunity to create and send your own dedicated liveries to some of the cars used during the series. The best liveries will be shared on Ferrari’s official social channels in a section specifically dedicated to the contest within the Ferrari eSports Series website, and the most popular design from the community will finally be inserted into the game and used in official competitions. Good luck!
