Screen to Speed Summer Cup: An Online Sim Racing Championship for Women
Init Esports has just announced the upcoming Screen to Speed Summer Cup, a sim racing championship designed for women, which follows the successful screening of the Screen to Speed mini-documentary that gathered 250 thousand live viewers on Twich.
The Screen to Speed Summer Cup is an online championship that will provide a platform for women to showcase their talent and skills. Registration for the championship opened on June 30, 2023, and can be accessed through the official website. Additionally, the championship serves as a catalyst for greater diversity, inclusivity and representation of minority groups within the sim racing industry.
The upcoming Screen to Speed Summer Cup for women will feature six time attack challenges and six races. This championship will run from July 1 to October 7, offering an exciting competition focused on speed and precision. All the races will be broadcasted live on the Init Esports Twitch channel.
According to Init Esports, the championship is set to offer an interesting element: a variety of car and track combinations in every segment. This implies that the drivers will have to face a new car and track combination every time, which will challenge even the most versatile drivers. Additionally, drivers will need to adjust their abilities to a diverse range of circumstances, displaying their real skills and flexibility on the virtual tracks. The car for each segment will be announced on the Discord channel one day before.
"We are incredibly excited to launch the Screen to Speed Summer Cup, a championship that aims to empower women and minorities in the sim racing community," said Stefy Bau, founder of Init Esports. "Our goal is to provide a platform for underrepresented groups to shine and demonstrate their exceptional driving abilities. By creating an inclusive environment that celebrates diversity, we hope to inspire and encourage a new generation of sim racing enthusiasts."
