The past 5 years have seen esports in explosive international growth. Media throughout platforms are interested in broadcasting the sport and major live events have been held around the globe. Skilled players make multiple millions as full time esports athletes. This emerging market has sparked investments into the sport from a growing number of businesses.
During the pandemic of COVID19 the growth of Digital Motorsport has been hard to oversee. Digital motorsport got the big breakthrough on March 22, when both eNASCAR and virtual Formula One races were shown on TV in place of canceled races. The eNASCAR race drew 910,000 viewers, fewer than the three million typical for NASCAR but more than the 400,000 typical for a virtual race.
Even though you are sat at home in front of your computer screen, you still get to apply many of the same techniques as in real-life racing.”
– Nicki Thiim, 2 x FIA World Endurance Champion
Pro drivers have sneaked unannounced into online competitions for years. For fans, it’s like joining a pickup basketball game and finding LeBron James on the court. Carmakers see the brand-building value of games. Chevrolet made news when its simulated C8.R mid-engine Corvette joined iRacing’s IMSA series in September. Chevy, like manufacturers as varied as Mazda and McLaren, licenses its vehicles to dozens of games including iRacing, Forza, Project CARS and Gran Turismo Sport.

ESR focus purposefully on the synergies between virtual and real-life motorsport. In June 2019, the 12 best placed sim racers from the inaugural season in Danish Esport Racing Championship got to exchange their prizes at FDM Jyllandsringen. A requirement to win this prize was the participants had never held a track racing license. The day very quickly showed that the quickest sim racers, were also the quickest when racing real-life race cars on a real-life racetrack. ESR place great emphasis on achieving real connection among the members. This, in turn, returns a better tone on chat boards and more respectful behaviour on track, when racing takes competitors wheel to wheel in the virtual racing.
