Yunho Park, who previously confirmed the overall title of the season, finished second in the final round of the AMX ESPORTS JUNIOR CUP.


Korea's first attempt to foster junior racing drivers through sim-racing, and the final AMX e-sports match (10th round) was well received by quite the online audience and ended successfully.


Hosted by Automanix (CEO Lee Sang-hak) with the support of the Korea Automobile Racing Association, the AMX ESPORTS JUNIOR CUP was designed to discover and train talented racing drivers to someday represent Korea. While laying the foundation for domestic motorsports and taking the lead in popularization and development of motorsports, scholarships of 2 million KRW for first place, 1 million KRW for the second place, and 500,000 KRW for third place is separately awarded to the top three to further realize their dreams.


The AMX ESPORTS Junior Cup was held in the order of 60 minutes of practice, 10 minutes of preliminary round, and 15 minutes of the main race. The qualifying results ended in HeeJung An, who recorded a 1 minute 22.423 qualifying record, Yunho Park with 1 minute 22.607, coming in second, and Junho Jang, in third with a 1 minute 22.664 seconds qualifying record. It was expected that fierce competition would take place as Heejung An and Junho Jang were to aim for the overall second spot depending on the outcome of the final round


The race was a showdown between the developed spears and shields of the AMX Juniors. Heejung An maintained the lead under tremendous pressure from Yunho Park, and Yunho took opportunities to overtake from time to time. However, with one minute left before the end of the game, there were a series of unexpected events. Heejung An faltered in the process of escaping the corner, and Yunho Park regained the position. However, Heejung An who did not lose concentration until the end, succeeded in recapturing the lead like a film-like move in the last lap and last corner.


Yunho Park, who won the overall title in the first season, is a star player representing both the AMX e-sports Junior Cup and AMX ESPORTS Championship presented by Kolon Motors. Earlier, he performed well with an overwhelming difference in domestic sim racing games. Out of a total of 10 rounds, he finished the game with Podium in 9 games, won 5 championships, and finished runner-up 3 times. As he has performed so well so far, he is expected to perform well even when participating in motorsports.


Lee Sang-hak, CEO of Automanix, said, "Congratulations on Yunho Park's overall victory. The final match of South Korea's motorsports grassroots project and the AMX ESPORTS Junior Cup ended with everyone paying close attention. In fact, players participating in the Junior Cup are also participating in karts and real motorsports to realize their dreams and are performing quite well. We will continue to make efforts to foster motorsports talent in Korea," he said.
