Thrustmaster is teaming up with the ‘Jean Alesi eSports Academy’ for a project that’s as ambitious as it is exciting: launching a programme that’s designed to give high-performing sim racers the boost they need to reach new heights.
Real support for racing pro players
Sim racers who are selected for this development programme via the Jean Alesi eSports Academy, will be given a true training experience. The training courses will cover the entire range of topics that drivers need: racing strategy, fine-tuning the car settings, as well as mental preparation, physical training, diet, communication, etc., all with the invaluable support of Jean Alesi and Matteo Bobbi, who are key players in the motor racing industry. Of course, one of the main aspects of the project is the equipment used. That’s where Thrustmaster has its role to play, with their proven expertise and comprehensive, performance-driven racing ecosystem, that is perfectly in line with the objectives of this new programme.
Drivers who participate, some of whom will be recruited directly from the pool officially sponsored by Thrustmaster, will be treated with the same level of focus as top athletes deserve. Their surroundings will be designed for in-depth immersion in the world of racing, be it virtual or real, in order to maximise their performance.
A logical match
With this kind of organization and vision, it was only logical for the Jean Alesi eSports Academy and Thrustmaster to join forces. Jean Alesi said: “The Thrustmaster brand, with its expertise, history, values and products, is the ideal partner for us. Working with their products will be an undeniable advantage for the drivers.”. Eric Mindjimba, Thrustmaster’s esport International Team Manager: “We are delighted to partner with such a dynamic and professional structure.”. Now it’s time now for our first lessons, please stay tuned for more detailed information!
