More information about the V8 Supercar venture into esports is emerging after Daily Esports caught up with Commercial Manager for Supercars Jamie Black, at the Sydney SuperNight 300 over the weekend.
Jamie Black and Daily Esport discuss how moving into esports isn’t about finding new physical drivers but revelling in the dedication esports drivers have to their own sport. Black also reveals how having an esports series alongside the physical sport can open both up to new fans, especially when the physical sport can have such high costs associated with it.
Black told Daily Esports, “It’s very expensive to get into motorsport, and there’s a huge barrier to entry there. Esports on the other hand is for everyone. It’s fairly cheap and this is something we can provide and really open up our sport to everyone.”
While no details have been confirmed or finalised, there are plans to have online and offline events, mostly likely at live motorsports events and live esports events.
