Fiercely competitive ISOWC gets underway this weekend at legendary Watkins Glen circuit

iRacing’s leading Indycar championship, ISOWC gets underway this weekend (8 May, 6:00pm UTC) and YAS HEAT ESPORTS has high hopes for the opening round of the series – a 60 lap race around the iconic Watkins Glen (Boot) circuit.

The iRacing squad qualified for the series fresh off the back of a third-place overall in the Sports Car Open (SCO), against the likes of team SIMMSA Esports and Team Redline to name but a few.

João Vaz, meanwhile, set an outright world record during the NTT Indycar Series at the Circuit of the Americas, suggesting that the team should be able to fight at the sharp end of this championship.

The line-up for the series comprises YAS HEAT’s finest iRacing competitors in the form of the aforementioned João Vaz, Balázs Remenyik, Josh Lad and Dean Woods.

Balázs Remenyik, iRacing Driver, YAS HEAT ESPORTS said:

“It’s been a while since there was such a high-level, open-wheel series on iRacing and I’m really happy to be a part of it. The car is new for us but everyone in the team is working hard to make sure we arrive to the first race in the best shape possible.”

Josh Lad, iRacing Driver, YAS HEAT ESPORTS said:

“It’s good to be back in the open-wheelers but the competition is much more experienced in the car so it’s definitely going to be a challenge.”

Dean Woods, iRacing Driver, YAS HEAT ESPORTS said:

“It’s a pleasure to be invited to this invitational series. With my fellow team-mates alongside, I’m highly motivated and believe my team and I can achieve something special in this series. We haven’t driven the car prior, the learning curve is high, but we’ll be all-out attack when the green flag falls.”

ISOWC 2021 kicks off on 8 May, at Watkins Glen with the conclusion of the 6 race series getting underway on 31 July, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

DHL Extends its Partnership with ESL Gaming
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

DHL has extended its partnership with ESL Gaming, the world’s largest esports company.

DHL has been the Official Logistics Partner to ESL since 2018 and is responsible for the transport logistics, moving stage equipment, monitors and gaming chairs, among other elements.

With the extension, DHL continues its extensive involvement in esports. Building on an established footprint and successful activation campaigns around the ESL One tournament series in previous years, the new agreement will expand to include the full ESL CS:GO Pro Tour, all of ESL’s global Dota 2 properties, and ESL Mobile, an all-new mobile esports ecosystem.

The expansion follows a joint success story in challenging times. When faced with the pandemic last year, DHL and ESL quickly adapted to the new situation of hosting tournaments fully online. DHL kept focus on “uniting gamers”, transforming their activations into innovative signature segments, quizzes, and games directly engaging with fans in a digital way via Twitch.

“Gaming is the fastest-growing form of entertainment globally. I am delighted that we as a logistics provider are part of the esports world and that our partnership has been extended covering a broader spectrum via ‘ESL Mobile’. DHL is celebrated and beloved by the ESL fan base which is the greatest compliment for a sponsor. A great success was that we were able to unite gamers even despite online only tournaments and I am looking forward to many more events to come. For us, making this emotional connection with esports fans across the globe is the perfect way to engage with a huge community of digital natives with an affinity for e-commerce,” Arjan Sissing, Head of Brand Marketing at Deutsche Post DHL Group, said.

“We are very happy to extend our partnership with DHL in what is an exciting time for our company and the esports community at large. With the addition of ‘ESL Mobile’, we will be able to provide entertainment to fans across the globe and it’s great to continue on this journey with DHL providing an essential business solution as our Official Logistics Partner,” Ralf Reichert, CEO at ESL Gaming, said.
