Formula E to boost virtual racing experience with Playseat® simulators!

Playseat® Formula E collaboration

We have a collaboration with Formula E and will provide state-of-the-art gaming simulators for eRace events, including the inaugural Visa Vegas eRace on January 7!

As a world leader in the gaming simulator market, we provide professional drivers and fans with the most engaging and realistic gaming experience. A number of top-level international racing drivers use Playseat® gaming chairs to replicate the position and feeling of racing on track. That’s why the collaboration with electric street racing series Formula E is a perfect match!

As official supplier, Playseat® will continue to provide world-leading gaming simulators for the eSports arena in the eVillage fan zone at all Formula E events, as well as the ground-breaking Visa Vegas eRace taking place at The Venetian Hotel as part of Sports Business Innovation at CES.

The stars of the FIA Formula E Championship and a selection of sim racers will battle it out in a virtual race behind the wheel of Playseat® simulators in a bid to win a share of $1 million – the biggest prize in eSports racing history!

Dr Fernando Smit, President & CEO of Playseat®’s thoughts about the collaboration: “The partnership with Formula E is a very good fit as most professional drivers use Playseat® simulators at home, and they have their factory simulators too. It comes close to reality and has both factors you want when training and gaming – fun and simulation. We want to be the bridge between gaming and racing, and there is no gaming simulator in the world that is more connected than Playseat®. It’s important to do things like Vegas to make it available to both drivers and fans alike.”

We are looking forward to the upcoming Formula E events, where Formula E drivers and fans can experience how fun and realistic racing can be with Playseat® racing simulators!
