G2 Esports is going to launch an eSports racing team in partnership with Red Bull Racing. The team will initially compete in the F1 Esports Pro Series.
Christian Horner, Red Bull’s Team Principal said: “It is tremendously exciting to see this new direction being taken by the Team. We took part in F1 Esports last year and the response was incredibly positive. We are a Team who has always backed youth and this opportunity provides us with the potential to engage with a wider and younger audience, whilst becoming competitive in a rapidly expanding and exciting new discipline.”
The team will also compete in tournaments such as Forza Motorsport, Project Cars 2, rFactor 2, Assetto Corsa, and RaceRoom. It’ll also compete in the FIA Gran Turismo Sport World Championship.
Danny Engels, Head of Gaming Operations for G2 Esports added: “We are extremely excited to have two of the strongest and most successful brands in their respective worlds join forces. Esports racing connects our virtual environment with the real-life sport in a peerless fashion.”
