ESE Partners with Apparel Company, Diverse, for Digital Motorsports Tournament at Automotive Icons Exhibition
VANCOUVER, BC, April 12, 2022 – ESE Entertainment Inc. (“ESE” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ESE) (OTCQB: ENTEF) is pleased to announce that it has signed a sponsorship agreement with Diverse, a leading multi-brand European apparel company, for Digital Motorsports’ in-person tournament, which is concluding with grand finale on April 13, 2022 (the “Tournament”).
Diverse has a history of partnerships within the automotive industry. Diverse is the official technical partner of Dakar, the annual rally car race, and has produced apparel for 24 Hours of Le Mans, an automobile endurance event, among other partnerships. As a part of sponsorship of Digital Motorsports Tournament, Diverse provides best competitors with valuable gift cards.
The Tournament is taking place at Automotive Icons, an exhibition held in Warsaw, Poland, which showcases over 50 exclusive cars, from vintage icons to the latest super cars from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Maserati, Bentley, Aston Martin and other top brands. The exhibition launched at the beginning of the year and is set to remain active until mid-April.
As part of the Tournament, competitors will use the top-of-the-line simulators provided by Digital Motorsports, which allow for immersion levels almost undistinguishable from real life. The line-up includes 4 static simulators and 1 motion rig. Built from state-of-the-art sim racing hardware, the equipment is used by professional esports drivers. The guests have the ability to do practice laps, compete in a time trial mode, or race against AI.
A brand new, fully equipped Digital Motorsports racing simulator is being offered as the main prize of the Tournament. The competition has three stages: Challengers, Speed Challengers and the Final. Ultimately it boils down to the best drivers competing to set the best single lap times possible to make it into the final, where a hot-lap style event will decide the winner.
Jędrzej Stęszewski, Director of Operations at ESE, commented, “The Diverse sponsored tournament at the Automotive Icons exhibition is not only a great opportunity to showcase high-class Digital Motorsports simulators, but also to showcase a new revenue stream. Visitors who buy tickets have the unique opportunity to drive a professional simulator. The best contenders in the sim racing tournament have a chance to win a valuable simulator and prizes from Diverse.”
