Veloce Esports won the first ever Le Mans Esports Series, overturning a pre-race 15-second deficit to win the final race of the 24-hour Super Final.
Veloce entered the Super Final as a wildcard entry along with SMP, joining 10 three-driver teams that had qualified from over 20,000 competitors in an intense six-round qualifying format.
It partnered its Forza specialists David Kelly and Noah Schmitz with eROC champion but Forza novice James Baldwin.
While Veloce finished second in the first of the nine-races taking place over a 24-hour period ahead of the main Le Mans 24 Hours, it struggled in the subsequent races.
But it battled back, winning the sixth race and earning fourth on the grid for the deciding race - a 90-minute race in modern GT cars that would require all three drivers in each of the teams to take part.
As Veloce was 15 points off the championship lead, Baldwin started its race 15s after polesitter Baguette Racing.
The team passed Kitty Krew, which won two of the first eight races and hunted down Baguette before overtaking the French trio's entry on lap 18 of 24.
Veloce, in the hands of Sauber Esports driver David Kelly, stormed into a sizeable lead and claimed the $25,000 prize for winning the final to add to its $6000 from the first eight races.
The trio will also stand on the top step of the actual Le Mans podium.
Baguette was forced to settle for second place ahead of Kitty Krew, which took the final place on the podium and increased its own prize money to $14,500.
Mighty 38 completed the top four, scooping $4000 in prize money - its first of the Super Final.
Its drivers David Hoch and Christopher Farkas delivered a two-man job for the final after European qualifying leader Shaun Arnold was forced to withdraw from the competition due to personal reasons.
The Le Mans Esports Series will return for a second season, and more information will be released shortly. Interested gamers can sign up for more information here.
