Team HARD. Racing is delighted to announce the official launch of its own esports Racing Team. Bringing together dedicated and passionate individuals under the E-Team HARD. umbrella the project will see these drivers fly the flag for the team across multiple racing disciplines and platforms as well as allow the team to explore new commercial opportunities in the gaming industry.
The idea of this program is to not only compete in some of the top esports racing competitions but to also provide a community for budding esports gamers in the motorsport sector to connect, progress and get closer to motorsport.
Heading up the program is Lee Duncan, who will act as Team Principle for the esports section of the team. An experienced sim-racer himself, Lee will be managing the program, dealing with the day-to-day running of the team whilst competing in multiple racing series himself.
Tony Gilham, Team Owner of Team HARD. Racing is excited to see what unfolds in the digital motorsport space.
“We dipped our toes into the world of esports during COVID-19 with our esports racing leagues which saw some of the UK’s top sim racing battle it out for top honours and a place on our scholarship program. It was a great success and something we would have loved to continue with but as the British Touring Car Championship and other series got back underway, we had to re-allocate our resources.
“Over the past six to seven months Lee has come on board and taken this opportunity by the scruff of the neck which has enabled us to relaunch in an official capacity as E-Team HARD. Racing. Whilst for now, our esports focus is on competing against others in, established racing leagues we are not ruling out bringing our own series back to provide an opportunity for the best esports racers to get out on the track for real.”
