Last post by BigC_019 - It’s an appropriate time to announce that next Monday’s Monaco Grand Prix will be final race in PSGL F1 on F1 2019.
This decision has been on my mind over the past few weeks, especially given now I am back in employment and the fact that the results and general pace is arguably getting worse or at least stagnating at a level which is not enough to compete in PSGL F1, or at least at the level I want.
The decision to withdraw following Monaco is because it is my best opportunity to end with a decent result and allows me to go into a new year, a new decade, not racing on F1 games.
Being as successful as I have been in PSGL, it’s not been easy over the past six months to accept being at the back or midfield but it’s now reached the point where I have zero urge to league race or turn the game on in the week to practice.
I am immensely proud of what I have achieved on track as a champion and off-track as an admin and league director. I’ve met many great people over the years and have a lot of good memories to look back on that I am sure I will remember for many years to come.
Firstly I would like to thank Fish and Tej for what they’ve done for the site in running it, their financial contribution to running the forum and allowing us to have a home to league race. Without them, this would never have been possible for me or PSGL as a whole.
My right-hand man - Irun - who without I would have never achieved or had the success I had on-track nor would PSGL be in the position it would be without his contribution. My main group of friends alongside Irun - Lordy, Joel, Josh, Louis, and later on, Greeny and Maxi - for being great people and being part of my PSGL experience for many great years.
Special mentions to Cam, Oisin & Tobi - as well as the whole of the ‘Kys Chat’ who I met through AOR S12/S13.
I plan to remain as league director and continue to run PSGL until the end of this season and ensure everything is in place for S25 - should it be on F1 2019 again. After that, we will see what comes and how I am feeling.
I turn 24 in April so I really need to be putting time into my career and other projects to do with journalism.
In terms of racing, December 16 will be my final PSGL race with the RaceDepartment title finale in Abu Dhabi taking place on December 17. This will be the final week of racing for myself on F1 2019 - I categorically will not race in PSGL F2 or F3. There may be a testimonial style event (invite only) at some point but we will see.
I am an F1 fan (and probably won’t sell my wheel) so I will pick up F1 2020 of course. I don’t plan to ever race competitively again, but if it turns out on F1 2020 I was back on the pace, had the time alongside a job - as well as the desire and motivation, then you never know.
I’ll try to enjoy these final two rounds… let’s have fun!
PSGL is delighted to announce it will be teaming up with Livid E-Racing to host its inaugural eSports team competition on F1 2019 - involving some of the biggest teams and drivers in the Formula One community.
This partnership means that PSGL will host the event via YouTube, conduct the stewarding and use our rules and regulations with regards to racing and so on, while Livid will direct the event with regards to graphics and the general direction of it.
The PSGL Livid Invitation Cup sees Visceral Racing (VSR), S2V eSports, Inside Line Racing Team (ILRT), Comrade Gaming & Livid E-Racing compete against each other in the New Year.
The inaugural season will be four rounds long taking place over two weeks. Each race will be 25% race distance with one-shot qualifying determining the grid for each race.
All assists will be banned.
To avoid clashing with our PSGL season, the races will be taking place on Wednesday at 8:30pm UK time.
The races will be live streamed on the PSGL YouTube channel. The commentary team will be confirmed in due course.
Speaking of the announcement, league director BigC said: ‘I am delighted to finally announce that PSGL will be hosting this eSports event alongside Livid. In the past couple of years, PSGL has established itself as one of the biggest leagues on the PS4 and we felt this event will bring new eyes and new opportunities to the league. A lot of our best drivers are involved in the teams involved so it made sense to get involved. I am excited to see how it will all playout in January and look forward to what we can build with regards to PSGL and eSports teams in 2020’.
