Official ACO/FIA WEC Competition Offers Prestige, Opportunity for Young Squad
September 19, 2018 -- Already a hotbed of knowledgeable, passionate endurance racing fans, Swordfish Motorsport reacted with sheer delight, and keen interest, at the announcement and organization of the LeMans eSports series! This international affair presents a perfect platform for the team to take on the world's best and get the word out on the growing squad as it seeks to become a major player in the sim racing eSports scene.
Serving as team manager for this event, Mike DiAmore (XBOX: SFM SKYACTIV) stressed the incredible honor and opportunity this competition represents for the Swordfish squad: "When you think 'Endurance Racing,' you think LeMans. Every racing driver (real and virtual) wants to make it there. Everyone that's been there wants to win there. Everyone that's won there has reached the pinnacle of the sport. Swordfish Motorsport strives to be next team to reach those lofty heights." Adding this prestigious, well-supported competition only furthers the recent push being made by the team, both in terms of results with the TEC, TORA 24H LeMans performances, as well as organization/outreach efforts such as the establishment of swordfishmotorsport.com and expansion of eSports/sim racing commentary services on Twitch (sfm_official).
The LeMans eSports series (LSEM) consists of 6 qualification round from which 18 drivers (1 per qualification round from each of 3 regions) as well as 6 additional teams (of 3 drivers each) have the opportunity to earn a trip to Le Mans, France in 2019 for the Super Final, to be contested at the legendary old lady of Endurance, the Circuit de la Sarthe. Swordfish Motorsport is an eSports/Virtual Racing team competing in multiple sim racing leagues and events across a variety of platforms (XBOX, PC) and games (Forza Motorsport 7, Project Cars 2, iRacing).
