SRO: Fanatec E-Sports
As part of the new relationship between GT World Challenge Europe and Fanatec, the real-world events host equivalent e-sports events at each race. Each round has an indoor arena installed with 30 sim rigs. Each team nominates a driver to compete in the 1-hour e-sports race on the Saturday night. Our job is to sit behind the scenes with one of our ultra-powerful gaming laptops (that we take to each race) and create ‘live’ images from the event for the social media feed.
Not only does SRO run e-sports races in the arena on-site, it also runs international series for the best sim racers in the world. The drivers compete remotely, and we produce the images ‘live’ remotely.
As part of the Fanatec sponsorship for GT World Challenge Europe, we helped design the official posters for each race. Our brief was to use the official series racing sim (Assetto Corsa Competizione) to create realistic looking scenes for the posters.
