G2 Esports reveal new racing venture

They've teamed up with Red Bull Racing Esports to produce a combined team filled with new talent and G2 drivers as well.

G2 Esports has revealed that they've partnered with Red Bull Racing Esports to combine their esports operations and their own sim racing experience in a joint venture. Red Bull Racing Esports is therefore now a merger of new talent and G2 drivers.

"It is tremendously exciting to see this new direction being taken by the Team," says Formula 1 Team Principal Christian Horner. "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. I can't profess to be an expert in the field yet but I look forward to seeing how our rapidly expanding Team fares against the best sim racers in the world."

Below is the team in full:

Joni Törmälä, Finland
Graham Carroll, Scotland
Cem Bolukbasi, Turkey
Frederik Rasmussen, Denmark
Patrik Holzmann, Germany
Nestor Garcia, Spain
Sebastian Job, England
Aurélien Mallet, France
Robin Betka, Germany
Zach Taylor, USA

G2 Esports Head of Gaming Operations Danny Engels also added the following: "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. The accessibility of sim racing offers a new entrance into motorsports for both experienced racing lovers and new fans. The line-up of drivers representing the Red Bull Racing Esports Team is the most successful group in the entire sim racing space and will fight for World Championships across multiple games and platforms. I'm confident that this will be our year!"

In terms of the games they'll be competing in, G2 mentioned Project Cars 2, Assetto Corsa, RaceRoom, and more.

Can this be the best racing team in the world?
