The second race of the Le Mans Esports Series 2020 Super Final is underway, with three races for cars from the 1970s-80s taking place on Forza Motorsport 7

Watch Live: Day 2 of the Le Mans Esports Series Super Final

The 2020 Le Mans Esports Series Super Final in association with Motorsport Games follows the incredible success of the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual in June and last year's final, which was won by Veloce Esports just hours before the real race took to the grid.

Teams from around the world will compete on Forza Motorsport 7, on the Xbox One family of devices, in the 2020 final.

They will take place over four nights that reflect the history of the iconic endurance race.

Each night will feature four hours of exhilarating racing with two one-hour sprint races and a two-hour endurance race.

The two teams with the lowest points, in both the Pro and Pro-Am categories, at the end of every night will be eliminated until we go into the Super Final on Friday 18th September where the top three teams will fight it out for the title.

The first one-hour sprint race kicked off on the Le Mans Bugatti layout with Red Bull Racing Esports in its expected place at the front of the grid.

It was a dominant showing from the team in the 1956 Jaguar D-Type machines as Robin Betka easily won in the Pro class.

The second race at Silverstone featured the same Pro podium, but in a different order, this time using 1958 Aston Martin DBR1s.

Williams Esports was able to overcome Red Bull and take the race win with Isaac Price at the wheel.

The Lazarus team claimed second place with Red Bull forced to settle for third.

Race three was dramatic as the drivers returned to Le Mans on the old circuit (no Mulsanne Straight chicanes).

In the Pro class (1963 Ferrari 250LM), an issue for Red Bull dropped the team down the order and opened up the race as Lazarus and Veloce Esports fought for control of the top spot.
