Mahindra Racing invites you to join us on Friday in the Mexico City eVillage at 13:30 CST for a spectacular showdown of the sim racers.
Olli Pahkala, the professional sim racer, has challenged Felix Rosenqvist to a duel at the Mexico City ePrix to determine which of them is the best virtual racer.
The pair first did battle in the Formula E Vegas eRace in January, where Pahkala finished first on track. However, due to a technical glitch he was handed a post-race penalty and finished third behind Rosenqvist in second place. On Friday, the two shall meet again in the Gaming Arena to complete a series of challenges where one will be crowned the ultimate winner. The event will be broadcast live on FIA Formula E’s official YouTube, Twitch and Facebook channels.
Other than bragging rights, one of them will take home an electric scooter from GenZe (a Mahindra company).
We look forward to seeing you there!
