Motorsport Games Inc. has announced a major addition to their company as former World Endurance Championship CEO Gerard Neveu joins the company as Motorsport Adviser.
Having served the FIA World Endurance Championship and its crown jewel, the Le Mans 24 Hours, for a decade, Neveu’s industry contacts will likely prove very valuable for the company that currently holds the license to build games and eSports products based on the famous French 24 Hour classic as well as NASCAR and the British Touring Car Championship.
“With Gérard’s extensive experience, we are certain he will ensure our brand remains genuine and continues to resonate and grow within the industry, all while creating world-class entertainment and content,” said Dmitry Kozko, CEO of Motorsport Games. “At Motorsport Games, motorsport isn’t just part of our brand, it’s in our DNA. Industry experts like Gérard enhance our authenticity and ensure we are thinking big, creating the most exciting new business opportunities for our Company and for our fans.”
“Motorsport Games is becoming the go-to leader in the virtual racing space – I’m excited to work with the team to build upon the company’s existing major live events and continue to help spread the joy of virtual racing with fans around the world,” added Gérard Neveu. “Virtual racing and esports have become major parts of the future within the world of motorsport and I’m honored to get to be a part of the phenomenon. By connecting real life motorsports with virtual racing events, we can create a whole new community that goes beyond just watching on TV, to actually participating in world class racing events.”
Aside from developing various officially-licensed titles, Motorsport Games is also in the process of taking over Studio 397 and their rFactor 2 simulation.
