G-Finity has come to HyperActive to secure four EVS XT3s and Avid NEXIS storage for the 2019 F1 New Balance Esports Series.
Running alongside the FIA Formula One World Championship, the F1 New Balance Esports Series is now in its third year. Ten teams – including Mercedes, Red Bull and Ferrari – will be on the virtual grid for the 2019 competition, making it the biggest and most ambitious season yet. The drivers are all professional, representing the pinnacle of motorsport gaming, and will vie for a cut of the $500,000 prize fund.
It’s smart marketing by F1 to align the virtual and real-world sports domains so closely, and in doing so they’ve created one of the world’s most innovative eSports offerings, regardless of genre.
