After the success of the Asian Touring Car Series, Adrenaline Impact and Vertex Esports are back with a new tournament, this time joining forces with SDeal Gaming, Simmatch and Torqu3 Lubricant Malaysia to launch the SDeal Saga Cup. Another Assetto Corsa event, this tournament pays homage to Malaysia and its most iconic vehicle, the Proton Saga. Yes, you heard that right. Competitors will be taking the 1985 car onto the racetrack.
With how involved the country is in motorsports and how many fans of the sport we have here, it only seems fitting to have Malaysia's very first car as the star of this event. Because it's not the most common choice when it comes to sim racing, it's going to make things even more interesting to watch. How often do you get to see Proton Sagas in high-speed races of this calibre? Exactly.
Qualifying races will be held at the Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia while the main races will take place at undisclosed locations (for now). Joining the racers will also be a cast of invited drivers and influencers - whose identities will be revealed at a later date.
To make it worth the competitors' time, the organizers have got some attractive prizes for the winners. A VNM Shifter, an aluminium racing rig, Torqu3 lubricants, and additional goodies for viewers who tune in. If you're keen on competing, just head over to the official form to sign up. As long as you can race in Assetto Corsa, you're eligible. To watch the tournament, follow Vertex Esports or Adrenaline Impact on Facebook for the livestreams. Galeri Kereta, the official media partner will also be hosting a Corolla KE30 giveaway to celebrate exceeding 1 million followers, find out more!
