British Hurricane is the Overwatch Contenders EU Season One champion.

British Hurricane is the academy team of Overwatch League side London Spitfire. As the only Europe-based Overwatch League team, the Spitfire’s is the only OWL-affiliated academy squad to compete in Contenders Europe.

British Hurricane faced Team Gigantti in the final after both teams swept through the playoffs with relative ease. The final itself was a thrilling best-of-seven that went all the way to the seventh map before the Hurricane emerged victorious.

British Hurricane also went on to win the Contenders Atlantic Showdown, the show match against Contenders NA champions Fusion University, 3-1.

Unlike the Overwatch League, Overwatch Contenders incorporates a qualification/relegation system. The bottom four teams will drop into Contenders Trials, where they will have to fight against the top four teams from the Open Division to reclaim a spot for Contenders Season Two.

As well as being rewarded based on final placement, teams also received prize money based on their map wins in the regular season. The full final placements for season one can be seen below:

  • 1st – British Hurricane – $40,198
  • 2nd – Team Gigantti – $21,877
  • 3rd/4th – CIS Hope – $18,030
  • 3rd/4th – Angry Titans – $18,030
  • 5th/8th – Eagle Gaming – $14,933.50
  • 5th/8th – Orgless and Hungry – $14,291
  • 5th/8th – Copenhagen Flames – $14,162.50
  • 5th/8th – Young and Beautiful – $13,006
  • 9th-10th – Team Singularity – $7,885
  • 9th-10th – Bazooka Puppiez – $7,628

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
