GamerFest is an epic weekend celebration of gaming that includes the latest games, VR tech, esports and career exploration, as well as a host of special guests including top Twitch and YouTube creators. With 5,000 visitors in attendance there is something for every gamer.
As part of the partnership, Williams Esports will be bringing five cutting edge Williams Esports sim racing rigs for the GamerFest crowd to test their racing skills. In addition to a Fastest Lap Challenge taking place across the weekend, Williams Esports Irish driver Daire McCormack will also be in attendance, meeting the crowd and chatting about his sim racing career to date.
Speaking at the announcement, GamerFest CEO Stuart Dempsey believes the Williams Esports team will be a hugely popular addition to the event: “We are incredibly excited to welcome Williams Esports to GamerFest this May. This is the first time that a global sim racing team has visited Ireland so there’s going to be a massive buzz around the Williams Esports area at the event.”
Director of Esports at Williams Racing, Steven English, is looking forward to meeting the Irish gaming community: “We’re excited about this opportunity to come over to Ireland and engage with the passionate sim racing and gaming community that we know is thriving here. We strive to give as many people as possible the chance to try an elite sim racing rig and help to grow their enthusiasm for the sport we love.
We hope to add a real highlight to the GamerFest event, and maybe we’ll even identify some top Irish sim racing prospects in the process!”
