Earlier this month, Formula E announced a competition which would ultimately have its pros taking on 10 of the world’s fastest virtual drivers in an eRace worth $1 million in cash.

A recent update from the FIA-sanctioned organization now reveals how the total purse will be divvied up amongst participants, and those skilled enough to make the final field can breathe a sigh of relief: all 30 joes and pros will walk away with at least $20,000 in prize money.

The three-month ‘Road to Vegas’ showdown invites gamers the world over to compete for a chance to take on the entire grid of Formula E racers at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Jan. 7, 2017. Touted by a Formula E media release as the “richest prize fund in motor racing eSports history,” the driver to claim the checkered flag first will be awarded $200,000.

Here is a complete breakdown of the ‘Road to Vegas’ winnings:

  • Pole – $25,000
  • Fastest Lap – $10,000
  • 1st – $200,000R2V Logo
