A winner will be crowned on November 20, in the week Supercars celebrates its own 2018 champion at the season-ending Coates Hire Newcastle 500.

Shakedown runs from October 1-7, with times set around Bathurst's legendary Mount Panorama in a Supercar on Forza Motorsport 7.

The fastest 32 gamers at the end of that week progress to the Eliminator round on October 16.

A series of races will then set the field of eight to contest the six-round Boost Mobile Supercars e-Series.

Starting that same evening, three, 20-minute points-scoring races will be held each Tuesday until November.

They will be contested on a range of world-famous venues including Bathurst, Spa-Francorchamps, Suzuka, Monza and the Long Beach street circuit.

All of the action will be streamed on Supercars.com, Supercars' social media channels and Twitch.

The competition this year features a significant prize pool including a $2,000 cash prize for the e-Series champion.

Standalone Cup Series separate to the main e-Series will also be held from October 17-November 19, on Wednesday evenings before a Monday finale.

These standalone races are open to all comers on the ESL Play website each week, with Supercars drivers set to participate as ghost competitors.
