Okay so we’ve already seen esports in Motor-racing, there was the Formula-E in Vegas, Supercars are doing something, and there’s FORZA’s and GT’s competitions… but you haven’t seen anything like this before.
Full motion, Virtual Reality racing! That’s what is here… today! I’m super proud and excited to announce that I’ve been working with Motum Simulation and we’re now launching our Virtual Sim Racing esports.
Virtual Sim Racing (VSR) utilises VR headsets to create an immersive environment. Couple this with Motum Simulation‘s full six-axis motion rig and you have a “video-game” that is capable of replicating real world driving. We’ve partnered with Project Cars 2 to bring out the best in broadcasting, graphics, and driving dynamics giving all our players the best possible experience. And we’re running with the best possible hardware – Corsair!
Probably the most exciting thing that VSR is here for is combination; blurring the lines between the physical and virtual, or digital worlds. Not only is this achieved by the use of motion and VR for realistic driving, but our league or series brings together physical world drivers, simulation racers, and gamers. We’re bringing together communities, ecosystems, and technology.
And it’s here NOW! VSR is set to run the first event at Etihad Stadium’s Legends Bar on the 2nd December, so sign up on the website to stay in the loop.
That’s all the info I can give you right now, but keep your eyes peeled for more announcements, and looking forward to racing with you all.
