François Ribeiro, Head of Eurosport Events, the WTCR promoter, said: “Esports is just booming in every sport so I am delighted we have prolonged our agreement with our long-term partner RaceRoom Racing Experience. With seven brands taking part in the WTCR there’s a lot of work being done behind the scenes to get all the cars ready. Following the Nürburgring launch event Esports WTCR OSCARO will start in the summer when all cars, drivers and tracks will be available. Then Esports WTCR OSCARO will run almost in parallel with the real WTCR and we’re expecting a very exciting championship.”
