The founding father of the hugely successful GT Academy “gamer to racer” programme Darren Cox launched the first professional virtual race team in motorsport, ‘ESPORTS+CARS’ in Spring 2016.
On track success has come quickly and our drivers have shown their quality and potential, particularly on Forza Motorsport where our drivers have established themselves as the dominant force. The team became the second most successful esports racing team of all time with 18 months and the most successful in 2016, its debut year.
Following this initial success the team has significantly expanded its roster both in terms of drivers and the games we compete in. Including establishing a significant presence in Formula 1.
