Pro sim racer, Bono Huis has won the inaugural Visa Vegas eRace, taking home a $200,000 prize.
Huis eventually inherited success from Pahkala who was handed a 12-second penalty following a post-race investigation for having gained an unfair performance advantage caused by a software issue.Twenty regular Formula E racers were thrown up against ten sim racers in an event that ended with a 20-lap race around a 3.1-mile virtual track around Las Vegas in what amounted to a 1 million dollar prize pool in total.
Sim racer Bono Huis led the race from pole ahead of professional Mahindra Formula E driver Felix Rosenqvist, but Pahkala – also driving for Mahindra – used his FanBoost whilst the leaders were making their stops, to undercut the pair and seize the lead with just four laps remaining.
The only major incident occurred when Graham Carroll, Aleksi Uusi and David Greco collided on the main straight just before the pit window opened, but, Huis managed to secure second place ahead Felix Rosenquist in third.
