The Gear.Club franchise is also available on the Apple iOS and Google Android platform. The game was recently used to select the first qualifier for season three of Torque’s World’s Fastest Gamer competition.
During the recent competition, Gear.Club had a remarkable 590,000 downloads, 64,832 competition entrants who had 424,680 qualifying attempts. In total, the gamers completed 5,351,990 km of racing to try to qualify for the World’s Fastest Gamer finals – that is the equivalent of 214 laps of the earth or 11 trips to the moon and back!
Last year’s World’s Fastest Gamer winner James Bladwin earned a real-world race drive in the World Challenge Europe GT series worth more than US$1 million.
Prior to racing on the Nintendo Twitch at Le Mans from August, Torque Esports / Engine Media will head to the Circuit de la Sarthe next week for the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual.
Torque’s racing simulator company Allinsports is backing the entry in the virtual version of the French endurance classic by Formula 1 legends Fernando Alonso and Rubens Barrichello. The FA/RB Allinsports is one of 50 teams invited to compete in the race. The pair of Formula 1 stars will be joined by world-class sim racers Olli Pahkala and Jarl Teien.
