Intel The Nest 2016 Cup #2

 

This coming week we have three members of the Trackmania team heading towards The IntelNEST #2 Trackmania tournament in Sloup v Čecháchz, Czech Republic. Of the three members Manuel Habi Blesa and Finn ReVolution Buecklers had made it through to the final 12 (reduced from 16) via online qualifiers. With Joachim xxRider Andersen receiving an invitation for the event.

Going into the event Manuel Habi Blessa made the following statement:

It’s gonna be my first ”major” Trackmania LAN so I’m so excited about it and looking forward to meet a couple of the best TM players! It will surely be a blast and a thing to remember in my life!

Tournament Details:

The tournament structure for the tournament is unique in that players before the race won’t have seen the map prior to the event and therefore will not have the opportunity to practice it to perfection. Instead players will only have a short time to familiarise themselves with the tracks before racing against their opponent. This will for sure make the event and outcomes both exciting and unpredictable as anything can happen!

Start Date: 19th August
End Date: 21st August 2016.
