The groundbreaking World’s Fastest Gamer esports competition is offering the opportunity for mobile gamers to compete to earn a wildcard entry into the WFG competition Grand Final via the Gear.Club mobile game.
Gear.Club is a next-generation realistic driving experience from acclaimed game development studio Eden Games. Players can race and explore in a huge, car-loving universe
World’s Fastest Gamer will bring together eight hand-picked esports racing champions from different gaming titles, gaming platforms and countries. Two wildcard entrants – one from desktop gaming and one from the Gear.Club mobile platform will complete the ten finalists.
These ten gamers will then compete for the opportunity race an entire season for real starting in early 2020.
In the inaugural season of World’s Fastest Gamer, Danish surgeon Henrik Drue was amongst the finalists who competed for the chance to become a Formula One simulator driver. While Drue didn’t take the overall victory – his speed and feedback were so impressive he was invited back for an additional simulator test by McLaren F1.
“For World’s Fastest Gamer, we are trying to find the best of the best. The beauty of esports racing is the costs for entry are significantly lower than trying to compete in the real world,” World’s Fastest Gamer founder and Millennial Esports Corp, President, Darren Cox said.
“But not everyone can afford a gaming console, let alone a full-on PC and gaming rig. We want to open up the opportunity to everyone. If you have a smartphone or mobile device – you can enter World’s Fastest Gamer thanks to Gear.Club.
“We want to know whether there is an incredibly talented gamer out there who had never even considered they might be fast enough to compete in real life.”
In the first edition of World’s Fastest Gamer, more than 26,000 entrants attempted to qualify for the finals via Gear.Club. The entrants completed more than 160,000 races to try to set the fastest time.
Entry for World’s Fastest Gamer begins on Thursday (July 18) and continues through to August 8. All entrants go into a prize draw to win a day at the WFG Driver Performance Centre at Silverstone.
