Team BRIT enters the world of e-sports

In partnership with PCDC Motorsports, Team BRIT is hosting its second e-race on the 6th April, with a grid of gamers competing online in a 6-hour endurance race around a virtual Oulton Park on iRacing.

The partnership is the start of a new initiative the team hopes to explore, building an ‘E-Team BRIT’ of disabled drivers in the future.

The team has a top of the range Vesaro race simulator, fitted with its world-leading hand controls, so virtual driving has become a core part of the team’s training programme.

Keen gamers can get involved in the Oulton race by joining the live action broadcast at Racespot.tv or in car with the streamers taking part. 

Team BRIT rookie driver Bobby Trundley, a 5 times karting champion, and sim trainer Matt Allen, will be challenging his competitors for the chequered flag, racing in a simulated Team BRIT BMW Z3 GT3.

Team BRIT sim trainer Matt Allen says, “As a team, we’re new to e-sports but we were really keen to take up PCDC’s generous offer of hosting races in partnership with us.

“E-racing is huge, and extremely talented drivers are starting to gain their skills and experience online before they get anywhere near a real track.  The capabilities of online and simulated platforms are so impressive now, so our drivers get real race training through our simulator.

“We’re looking forward to competing in a whole new world of racing, and will be releasing details of how to get involved with E-Team BRIT soon.”
