We have a new TrackMania²: Stadium ESWC World Champion and his name is Carl Jr!

In an amazing World Final at the ESWC, we saw a very tight race between some very talented TrackMania² players out there. Carl Jr, Tala, Koenz, and Bergie faced off and Carl Jr was able to pull out a dominating win over the field.

On his birthday, Tala takes the second place spot in the world championship. Rounding up the third place is Koenz who was competing in his very first international competition.

Bergie came in fourth, which may have been a surprise to some since he is a very talented player. But the day belonged to Carl Jr and to Canada.

Carl Jr takes home the first place prize of $4000 and crowned ESWC World Champion in TrackMania²: Stadium. Congratulations to him and congratulations to everyone who competed. Keep Racing!
