“The race in Monaco 2022 aims to have 111+ nations compete against each other to showcase the skills of their national Sim Race heroes & to find the fastest Nation in the world. Monaco is home to many famous sporting events in both racing and other sports. The Monaco Sim Racing World Cup 2022 is a great opportunity to put Monaco on the map as the Sim Racing Capital of the world. We aim to create a truly international race, so where better than to kick it off at the Monaco Pavilion during the World Expo in Dubai!” Said Louis Ducruet – President of the Monaco Esports Federation.
“In order for Monaco to succeed in their search for the fastest Sim Racer and the world’s fastest nation, it is important to engage the international esports community. The International Esports Federation sees the 2022 race in Monaco and the kick-off in Dubai in December as a great opportunity to engage with new international audiences and form stronger ties between our 111 member esports federations.” Said Vlad Marinescu – President International Esports Federation.
“Sim Racing is still fairly small compared to other esports but due to the fact that several real races have been canceled during the corona pandemic, famous drivers participated in online Sim Races which rapidly skyrocketed the awareness of the Esport. This growing trend has also hit the Gulf Region and we see the kick-off event in Dubai as a great opportunity to present the magic of Sim Racing to our audiences in the Gulf Region and ultimately increase our sales of top-notch Racing Rigs in the MENA Region.” Said Sanjay Holmukhe – CEO of Techxhub in Duabi, UAE.
“Dubai event is a great platform to show the future of the World. Countries are showing their vision on the future in their Pavilions. We are happy to support this great Esports event organised by the most famous in the racing world venue, Monaco in partnership with the global Esports governing body, International Esports Federations, IeSF.
