The Phoenix Pulse Young Driver’s Program: Esports is the latest innovation for motorsports from the country’s premier motorsports and events management Tuason Racing who is also celebrating its 21st year in the business. The new platform paves the way for more enthusiasts to participate in motorsports and compete in the global arena. This grassroots virtual competition complements other programs activated by the company such as the Giti- Formula V1 Race Challenge and the Toyota Vios Racing Festival.
Interested e-racers can register for free through the Tuason Racing facebook page or the link – https://bit.ly/2Xrk03X. They can choose to enter the YDP search or just race for a good cause. Special prizes await participants and spectators. The race will be live-streamed via Facebook live and will be hosted by Tuason Racing CEO and Founder JP Tuason.
“Expanding into E-sports is one of the highlights of our 21st year in the business. We have been bringing racers to compete all over the world. This time we are opening another career ladder, a virtual one,” said Tuason. “With the ongoing situation, we believe we can hit two birds with one stone, first is to be able to do our part and help frontliners. The second one is to provide racing enthusiasts a worthwhile activity while they stay home and help flatten the curve.” He added.
