The embodiment of my own ambition is heard in the name Speedcar VR-Attack. My involvement as a simracer but also the effort made through RallyDiaries seems to have attracted the interest, in addition to the simracing community, to those directly involved in the motorsport area.
The truth is that during the first quarantine of 2020, simracing became more popular as a hobby and sport. Besides the popular driver like Max Verstappen and Lando Norris that are involved in simracing with streaming on twich, many other drivers like Chris Ingram organized online events in order to promote themselves and their sponsors. Federations and clubs watched their races being canceled (Virtual Azores Rallye 2020) and car brands (Play with C3 R5) followed the same way in promoting their brands and motorsport.
In Greece, simracing has become popular through gaming events but also from the Greek streamers that we try to promote motorsport. The organized promotion of our work is a big effort in order to get the results we are working for. The benefits of simracing in motorsport are many, but this is another discussion.
Personally I believe that the moment that this article is published, Greek motorsport can't understand the benefits of simracing.
We are in the middle of the second quarantine in Greece and the representative of Speedcar Greece after watching a stream highlight from twitch, he contacted and present me the idea of a simracing challenge. After our conversation, I was pretty sure that the person I was talking to, was also a passionate simracer and that he knew our effort through DiRT Hellenic community!
His proposition was one of a kind!
- Is there anyone in Greece that won a simracing challenge and after that driven the real car? - Maybe!
For sure there aren't 3 drivers that did it!
Our cooperation and preparation of Speedcar VR-Attack was creative and everything was ready in detail! So, let's get on the stick!
