AOC expands their partnership with gaming giant Red Bull by supporting their sim racing division, Red Bull Racing Esports that features some of the best talents from all over the world. Their drivers won the Team Championship in the F1 Esports Pro Series two years in a row. Star racer Sebastian Job was crowned iRacing World Champion in 2020 by clinching the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup title, whilst the Forza team took home the LeMans Esports title.
“Red Bull Racing Esports sim racers already proved their skills and drive to make it to the top. With their feedback, we aim to further tailor AOC monitors to the needs of sim racers, and along with their talents keep pushing their performance to the next level,” says Stefan Sommer, Director of Marketing and Business Management at AOC.
Monitors are a crucial element in sim racing, having to provide a perfect overview of the racetrack and allowing the user to keep an eye on other drivers. Display screens also provide images at super-fast speed as every millisecond is an advantage in the world of Esports. Each discipline benefits from different displays. Red Bull Racing Esports iRacing team prefers a triple or quad-screen set up, the F1 division needs a single flat screen, and the V10-R drivers favour a single curved widescreen monitor.
Oliver Hughes, Red Bull Racing Chief Marketing Officer, comments “This new partnership with AOC connects to every aspect of our sim racing programme. In such a highly competitive sport where tenths and hundredths of a second count, a high screen refresh rate and lightening quick response time is critical for our drivers to be at the front of the grid. AOC’s range of high-end monitors are specifically designed for gaming and provide our drivers with the competitive edge. Our new purpose-built Esports training facility at the Red Bull Technology Campus in Milton Keynes is fully kitted out with AOC’s award-winning monitors, providing the Team with equipment that matches our ambitious targets and the high-quality facility we have created.”
AOC is ready to overtake the competition and help Red Bull Racing Esport’s sim racing talents to claim their next championship titles.
