Esports - the new gateway to motorsport, or just a game?

Esports has the potential to be a game-changer in motorsport. It can offer a cheap entry point for wannabe drivers as well as an engaged community to attract new fans. So how can the motor racing industry embrace this opportunity? Experts from across the Esports community reveal all

  • Is e-racing now the number one way to introduce Motorsport to a new generation of fans, or is it a new sport in itself?

  • How will fans interact with eSports and Physical racing? Will technology merge these two paths or will they become separate stand alone formats? How will technology develop over the next 5 years and where do sponsors see this opportunity?

  • Will future driving talent come from Esports rather than karting?

  • Or as technology powers ahead, is motorsport poised for a hyper-analogue counter culture (like vinyl records), separate from the virtual world?
