Reigning Porsche Esports Carrera Cup GB champions, inaugural IMSA Michelin Esports Champions & Rennsport ESL-R1 team Apex Racing Team [ART] have joined forces with Warrington based Gaming PC heavyweights Stormforce Gaming (part of the VIP Group) to collaborate on the development of a Sim Racing PC range and to launch a Stormforce Gaming branded racing team for the forthcoming Porsche TAG Heuer eSports Super Cup [PESC] series.
ART and Stormforce are delighted to announce that terms have been agreed which will allow the Stormforce Gaming ART team to commence racing in the first round of the PESC on Saturday 4th February 2023, with the inaugural race kicking off at 19:00 GMT.
Multiple race winners, ART have fielded Alex Sánchez, Salva Talens and Mathias Stokbæk under the Stormforce Gaming ART livery, with recent honours including winning the Daytona 24H, the IMSA Michelin Esports Championship and the Petit Le Mans. The Stormforce team will race alongside ART’s own entrants Jamie Fluke & Yohann Harth, taking on 33 of the world’s best iRacing sim racers to do battle on a global tour in the iconic Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, hoping to win a share of a $200,000 prize pool.
The wider partnership will see champion sim racing drivers and engineers from ART working collaboratively on a major research and design project alongside gaming hardware specialists from Stormforce to develop and bring to market a 3-tier range of high performance sim racing focused gaming PC’s, enabling Stormforce Gaming to break into the lucrative sim racing market and giving ART access to the latest high performance hardware for their own racing simulators.
Announcing the partnership, ART managing director and former world champion sim racing driver Alex Simpson said, “We looking forward to working with Stormforce, our partnership will ensure we compete with the very best equipment on the market but more than that we will help the sim racing community whether new comers or veterans pick the right PC hardware for their use case, through our extensive R&D project that will all be documented in a series of informative videos, reviews and streams.”
Digital Sales Coordinator for the Stormforce Gaming Brand, Marc Faulkner added “From the moment I first spoke to Alex, I knew that ART were the ideal partners for Stormforce, and it has become clear that we had a shared vision for long term collaboration, technical excellence and mutual success. We’re excited to have the opportunity to be taking the lead on such a unique R&D project…and of course to hopefully see Stormforce Racing ART on the podium!”
