Everything you need to know ahead of Formula E: Accelerate Round 5 at the Electric Docks

It's a three-way fight between the best rFactor 2 sim racers in the world for a share of a €100,000 prize pool and a real-world Gen2 test drive in Formula E: Accelerate, as we head to the penultimate round at Electric Docks on Thursday (19:00 UTC).

Formula E: Accelerate heads to Round 5 and the Electric Docks on Thursday evening (19:00 UTC) with a grid of 24 sim racing elites on the hunt for a share of a €100,000 prize pool and a real-world Gen2 test drive.

TUNE IN: Watch Formula E: Accelerate

The six-race esports series has been intense, and no mistake has gone unpunished. Frederik Rasmussen's win in Round 4 at Diriyah last week set up the run-in perfectly, as the rapid Dane clawed back ground on standings leader Erhan Jajovski (ROKiT Venturi Racing) and Kevin Siggy (BMW i Andretti Motorsport).

The series so far

Round 1 at New York City saw the introduction of ATTACK MODE and energy management into the sim threw everything up in the air among the grid of world-class sim racers, though Jajovski managed things nicely for the opening win of the series.


The battle continued on the virtual streets of Hong Kong's Harbourfront, with ROKiT Venturi Racing's "rFactor 2 GOAT" Jajovski doubling up to make it two lights-to-flag victories in two.
