Simulation racing team Red Bull Racing Esports has announced a partnership with gaming monitor manufacturer AOC.
As part of the deal, AOC has been named the official gaming monitor partner of the team.
According to the release, each of Red Bull Racing Esports’ drivers will have AOC monitors equipped to their individual sim racing rigs, alongside the manufacturer providing displays for all racing rigs inside the recently-opened Red Bull Racing Erena.
Oliver Hughes, Chief Marketing Officer at Red Bull Racing, spoke on the deal in a release: “This new partnership with AOC connects 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 lightning 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.”
Since the inception of Red Bull Racing Esports in 2019, the team has quickly become a household name within the sim racing world. The team has won the 2019 and 2020 F1 Esports constructors championship while driver Sebastian Job was crowned the 2020 Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup champion.
Stefan Sommer, Director of Marketing and Business Management at AOC, also commented on the partnership: “Red Bull Racing Esports sim racers already proved their skill and their 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.”
Esports Insider says: As one of the most recognisable brands in sim racing, it comes as no surprise to see AOC join forces with Red Bull Racing Esports. While the team’s drivers receive state-of-the-art equipment, AOC receives another prominent partner alongside data to maximise the performance of its products.
