Eclectic MoSport’s Independent Gaming Sponsorship Slots Now Vacant

BSRTC PRO Series, News, Press Releases

12527706_1686760411579581_1950651682_n (1)Along with the conclusion of the iRacing British Sim Racers Touring Car PRO Series’ sixth race night at the Nurburgring Nordschleife on Thursday the 21st of April last week, the tenures of the Potshotpete Twitch Channel and Game Developers Strange Fire as sponsors of reigning Amateur Division Champion John Roberts and Pro Driver Ben Hackeson respectively, also drew to an end.

Although both sponsors had signed up to back the aforementioned vehicles for a period of four weeks ranging from the 27th of March to the 14th of this month, the cancellation of the 14th April race’s live-stream owing to the broadcasters, Apex Racing TV’s prior commitments with the 2016 World Endurance Championship led to their sponsorship being extended by a week.

Pop UpOver the course of these four weeks regardless, both sponsors were seen advertising their respective brand’s gaming ventures through each of the races — the Potshotpete Channel promoted its regular streaming of Video Game content, while developers Strange Fire opted to have their indie RPG Shoppe Keep advertised.

This was done by flying the Channel’s and Shoppe Keep’s flags on the vehicles of Roberts and Hackeson respectively, while the live streams played their corresponding trailers during the 10 minute breaks between the races’ four rounds. Pop-up ads centred on the two will also be seen during the MotorsTV International TV broadcasts of the races over next month.

Since neither will be extending their sponsorships going forward however, the KIA Optima’s of John Roberts and Ben Hackeson, along with that of the team’s Amateur Division driver Andrew Whitehead, are now open to those looking to advertise their independent gaming projects via the event for a period of four weeks. As always, those interested in applying can do so via the Independent Gaming Sponsorship Application page.

 

13047810_1216748415021355_2065370031019469734_oFollowing the rather uneventful race at Donington Park on the 14th of April that was marked only by the two top ten finishes of reserve Pro Driver George Simmons in 6th place during round one and a 9th place finish of full-time, Shoppe Keep sponsored Pro Driver Ben Hackeson during round two respectively, Eclectic Motorsport performed to be the second highest scoring team of the night on its outing at the three rounds of the Nurburgring last week.

Having been victim to a spate of incidents since the start of the Season, the team’s Amateur Division driver Andrew Whitehead enjoyed not only his first night of successful finishes, but also came close to achieving his first top ten finish by placing in 11th place during the second race at the ‘Ring. ‘My first 100% finish rate, so I’m hoping this is a change in fortunes for me personally; Yes, it could have been so much better, but 3 finishes with so few incident points is very encouraging’, he stated in expression of his relief after the final round. With a cumulative of 212 points, Whitehead stood to be the 3rd highest scoring AM Driver of the night.

13047862_1216748411688022_4899291646089295810_oFellow Potshotpete sponsored AM driver John Roberts meanwhile suffered an unfortunate finish in 33rd place on the first round of  the night, after issues with his PC caused him to start an entire four minutes behind the rest of the pack.

Regardless, he’d go on to course through the enormity of accidents that had rippled through the second round to finish in 16th place from his 33rd place start, before finishing the final round  in 10th place to be the highest placed Amateur Division during its course and the 4th highest scoring AM Driver of the entire night behind Whitehead.

Following the dissolution of the Euro Chip Digital team last week, the team’s Reserve Driver Stuart Atkinson joined and competed as Eclectic Motorsport’s Reserve AM Driver to bring forth a trio of mid-rear pack wins at the German track; on account of his ‘Reserve’ status though, any or all points scored by him do not contribute to the team’s overall. Reserve AM Driver James Leggett on the other hand departed the team due to managerial commitments with the iRacing KIA Club Series.

13055068_1216748408354689_2443007276385607074_oAs for the Pro division, while not contributing to the team’s overall standings himself, George Simmons added to his growing list of top 10 finishes this Season by finishing the second round in 5th place overall. Despite one expecting team mate Ben Hackeson to lie within his immediate vicinity as is usual however, a bout of ill-health caused the full-time PRO driver to lag behind his usual form and finish rounds two and three in 24th and 21st place — after being enveloped by an on-track incident that ended his first round early. 

Nevertheless, the sum total of points earned that placed it just under the top of the Teams’ table for the night has only served to reinstate the team’s confidence ahead of their next scheduled race at Barber Motorsports Park on the 28th of this week, after the disappointment of the previous race at Donington had nearly sent them into a near team restructuring and strategy re-evaluation mode. As Simmons states — ‘If we’d have had another race we’d have been top; we did mega at the Nurburgring, it certainly is a turning point for us.’

The iRacing BSRTC PRO Series Touring Car PRO Series is an internationally broadcast, simulation racing championship that is currently witnessing 50 talented iRacing users compete for a $10,000 prize fund over the course of its Tenth Season. Besides being streamed to nearly 2,000 viewers every week on Apex Racing TV every Thursday at 8.15 P.M GMT, the races are also broadcast on MotorsTV International with up to three repeats.

By branding the former ProAm XLDesigns team of Andrew Whitehead, John Roberts, Ben Hackeson, George Simmons and now Stuart Atkinson to Eclectic Motorsport, Higher Eclectic Ground has been offering independent game talent from both within and outside its community the opportunity to advertise their games, YouTube channels, brands and other gaming projects via the event by sponsoring one of the team’s full-time drivers for an inexpensive fee on a monthly basis. Both Potshotpete and Shoppe Keep were the first gaming entities to sign up for the same.

Eclectic Motorsport Moves Up Three Places In Pro Series’ Team Standings

BSRTC PRO Series, News

 

1933391_1199413510088179_1598673538394757347_o (1)The third race of the iRacing British Sim Racers Touring Car (BSRTC) PRO Series at Brands Hatch’s Indy Circuit concluded this Thursday the 31st of March, leaving Eclectic Motorsport to maintain its position of ninth place within the Season’s standings that was attained during the course of the Season’s second race at Watkin’s Glen on the 24th.

After a tumultuous Season opener at Philip Island that brought along with it its fair share of on-track incidents and dropped the team to the bottom of the standings on the 17th of March, encouragement began to arrive when Shoppe Keep sponsored RESERVE PRO driver George Simmons qualified for 10th place on the grid at Watkin’s.

A relatively disciplined course through the first round of the night saw the driver move to 4th place, before reigning PRO Champion and current Sim Racer Magazine Team Driver Sebastian Job and David Baker of Race Hub took over to have Simmons finish in 6th place. Note however, that any points attained by Simmons do not contribute to the team’s standings and only to his own, given his status as a reserve driver for the team.

Simmon’s eventual 15th place finish in the race’s second round served to further add to the Team’s top-10 finishes of the Season (of which this was the second, following Ben Hackeson’s 6th place finish on race one at Philip Island), when he started the third round in 7th place as the result of the customary Grid reversal and went on to bag his first podium of the Season in third place. The team’s full-time Shoppe Keep sponsored PRO driver Benjamin Hackeson on the other hand had his exclusion from qualification — the result of a Penalty served at Philip Island —  working against him, keeping him at the mid-rear of the grid for a large part of the night.

This mid-rear grid stint ended by the final round, when a second place start on account of a Grid reversal led the young sim-racer to his second podium of the Season in third place. The consistently driven, Potshotpete sponsored car of current AM Champion John Roberts meanwhile had managed to reduce his points deficit to 261 — bringing himself up to 11th place on the AM Drivers’ standings as a result — while that of Team Manager Andrew Whitehead’s unfortunately managed to finish only two of the four rounds after being involved in two separate race collisions.

12894480_1346274975389992_1793203443_oThis gradual regaining of the team’s balance was further helped by Ben Hackseon at Brands Hatch Indy on the 31st, when the Shoppe Keep drivers finished in 9th place behind George Simmons in 6th during the first round. Excitingly the duo would go on to maintain their relative positions within the top 10 for the next two rounds, with Hackeson consuming 8th and 9th place while Simmons owned 10th and 5th, before both drivers were taken out by crashes on Race 4.

Nevertheless Hackeson and Simmons’ five top 10 finishes now have them in 12th and 13th place of the overall Drivers’ standings respectively, just as Potshotpete sponsored John Roberts’ four mid-rear pack finishes from the night at Brands brings him up to 9th place of the AM Drivers’ standings. Furthermore, leaving out the incident that ended his race prematurely by the fourth round, Whitehead’s three rounds saw the Series veteran hold his own against the competition by progressively making gains in position within the rear of the pack, where he also finished in good pace. The team will now be seen taking to the oval track of Phoenix on the 7th of this month, at 8.15 P.M GMT.

On the sponsorship front, besides visibly flying their flags on the drivers’ cars, both Potshotpete and Shoppe Keep have been debuting advertisements for themselves during the inter-round breaks at Watkin’s Glen and Brands Hatch Indy. It is worth noting however that the Potshotpete channel broke away from its humble teaser that was displayed during the race at Watkin’s Glen, to make way for a more visually descriptive trailer at Brands Hatch this week. Both sponsors are on track to advertise their respective projects over the next couple of weeks, on account of their corresponding four week sponsorship of John Roberts & Ben Hackeson that ranges from 24th March to 14th April, 2016.

While John Roberts is sponsored by Community member Jack Davison of the Potshopete Channel and Ben Hackeson by indie RPG Shoppe Keep developers Strange Fire until the 14th of April this year, those interested in joining them by sponsoring full-time driver Andrew Whitehead of Eclectic Motorsport — and creatively advertising their gaming projects amid the Series’ widely broadcast races over the course of four weeks in the process — can do so by visiting, learning more and applying for the same via the Independent Gaming Sponsorship Application page.

Meet Eclectic Motorsport’s First Independent Gaming Sponsors

BSRTC PRO Series, News, Press Releases

Potshotpete_CarFor each of the four-round races scheduled on the 24th of March, 31st of March, 7th April and 14th April as per the iRacing British Sim Racers Touring Cars (BSRTC) PRO Series’ Calendar for this year, Eclectic Motorsport drivers John Roberts and Benjamin Hackeson are set to be sponsored by The Potshotpete Twitch Gaming Channel and independent game Shoppe Keep.

While the sponsorship aids in compensating for the respective drivers’ race entry fee on the aforementioned dates, both the Channel and Game are granted all the advertising opportunities that arrive with the Eclectic Motorsport sponsorship package for independent gaming talent.

These include spots to flaunt their brand images on the sponsored drivers cars’ roofs, hoods and side panels that iRacing’s broadcast cameras are most prone to cover, a 30 second ad slot during each of the races’ three breaks between rounds to debut trailers within, and an animated pop-up spot for the races’ eventual MotorsTV International broadcasts.

Furthermore, the participation of the team’s reserve drivers George Simmons and James Leggett at Watkins Glen on the 24th, followed by the availability of a sponsorship slot for full-time driver Andrew Whitehead means that each of the sponsors will have their brand images replicated on a second team car as well during the race. This is of course, until Whitehead’s sponsorship slot is occupied by another sponsor looking to advertise their independent gaming projects.

Pop UpJack Davison as is known here, has been one of the Community’s recent additions to its circle of Video Artists bringing it a plethora of live streamed gaming content thrice a week via the Potshotpete Channel. His two week tenure on the Community has already seen the Twitch gamer creatively delve into The Division, The Forest and lend coverage to members TinyAtomGames’ recently released indie 8-bit shooter, Story of a Cube.

Shoppe Keep meanwhile, is the handiwork of non-member developer Arvydas Zermaitis of Strange Fire. Currently available on Steam as an Early Access release, Shoppe Keep continues to garner for itself a considerably positive response — for being a long awaited, RPG shop keeping game that tasks players with selling potions, armour and other apparel to rogues, barbarians, wizards and more in a fantasy themed world of adventurers. Interestingly, the developer has also hinted at potentially sponsoring Hackeson for the entire course of the Season.

The news arrives exactly a week after the BSRTC PRO Series — an iRacing based, simulation Touring Car Championship that comprises of nearly 50 drivers competing for a $10,000 prize fund amid broadcasts on Apex Racing TV, iRacing Live and MotorsTV International — kicked off its 10th Season at Philip Island.

While the action that ensued was typical of Touring Car & BSRTC high speed action, Eclectic Motorsport got off to an unfortunate start as a stream of inevitable incidents and accidents plagued the rounds of Andrew Whitehead, Benjamin Hackeson, John Roberts & George Simmons, causing the team to start the Season at the bottom of the Amateur Division Championship’s Table.

Now as 2015 PRO Series Amateur Division Champion Roberts and Whitehead rest at positions 17 and 16 of the AM Drivers’ table, PRO driver Hackeson — who finished the recently concluded BSRTC Winter Series in 5th place overall — occupies position 25th on the Drivers’ Championship standings. However as is usual with the BSRTC, standings and performance of the team is expected to fluctuate sharply through the course of this nine month season — given the hard-earned talent that continues to reside on board.

By branding the former XLDesigns team of Andrew Whitehead, John Roberts, Ben Hackeson, George Simmons and James Leggett to Eclectic Motorsport, Higher Eclectic Ground has been offering independent game talent from both within and outside its community the opportunity to advertise their games, YouTube channels, brands and other gaming projects via the event by sponsoring one of the team’s full-time drivers for an inexpensive fee on a monthly basis.

While John Roberts and Benjamin Hackeson are sponsored until the 14th of April this year, those interested in joining them by sponsoring full-time driver Andrew Whitehead of Eclectic Motorsport — and creatively advertising their gaming projects amid the Series’ widely broadcast races over the course of four weeks in the process — can do so by visiting, learning more and applying for the same via the Independent Gaming Sponsorship Application page.

Announcing Eclectic Motorsport

BSRTC PRO Series, News, Press Releases

Higher Eclectic Ground is now participating in the tenth season of the iRacing British Sim Racers’ Touring Cars (BSRTC) PRO Series that commences on 17th March, 2016 as Eclectic Motorsport; comprising of current BSRTC PRO Series’ Amateur Division Drivers’ Champion John Roberts, 5th place holder within the recently concluded BSR Winter Series Ben Hackeson, Series veteran Andrew Whitehead and reserve driver George Simmons, the former XLDesigns team will now be seen representing and flying the Higher Eclectic Ground colors in contention for the Series’ Amateur Division Championship.

Given how Roberts and Whitehead were previously Engine Oil Direct teammates last year, confidence within the team stands strong. ‘Bringing Hackeson and Simmons into the mix has really been the icing on the cake; We’ve all raced together in different series before, so we really are hooked up well as a team,’ explains team manager Andrew Whitehead, proud of the ensemble he’s managed to put together. 12349651_1334463236571166_419925480_o

‘There’s a very positive feeling in the garage and we’re pleased to be collaborating with Euro Chip Digital and Engine Oil Direct on setups and driver mentoring. We’re all looking forward to the season ahead.’

The BSRTC of course being a user created, KIA Optima driven Touring Car league that made history last year, when the Ninth Season of its PRO Series became iRacing’s first user-created Touring Car championship to feature a $10,000 prize fund while also being broadcast on Europe’s largest motorsport channel, MotorsTV International.

Besides a Sim Racer Magazine published biography  and weekly race reports provided by Higher Eclectic Ground last year, the Series remains relevant to the independent gaming community here in the fact that its members were given the opportunity to promote their games, blogs and other gaming projects amid the Series’ international gaming and sim-racing audience over the course of its final weeks.

This was done by letting them sponsor drivers during the races, which earned them a spot on those drivers’ cars to advertise their games & related brands, a 30 second ad slot for the same on the races’ iRacing LIVE and YouTube streams, along with animated pop-ups during the races’ MotorsTV International television broadcasts. The inexpensive structure established by the BSRTC & its broadcast partners Apex Racing TV for this purpose, saw nearly 10 of the Community’s members promote their gaming endeavors over the course of the PRO Series’ final five races.

With Eclectic Motorsport, more of the same sponsorship opportunities return albeit with much more structure; independent gaming talent is now encouraged to sponsor a driver for the duration of a month at a time i.e. four races instead of a week. This is to avoid the chaos that stems from multiple sponsors arriving and leaving every race, while also ensuring the advertised games and projects attain maximum exposure.

Furthermore, those promoting their gaming projects will be doing so only via Eclectic Motorsport’s cars, unlike last time where sponsors were allocated random cars/drivers on the grid. Meanwhile, the live-stream ad slots and TV pop-ups that arrived with each sponsorship last year also make a return — all part of a singular sponsorship package.

12842368_1334463209904502_1204293189_o (1)The Tenth Season of the BSRTC PRO Series will run from the 17th of March to the 17th of November this year, featuring more than 40 drivers & 13 teams competing for a $10,000 prize fund, titles of the PRO Drivers’, AM(Amateur) Drivers’, PRO Teams’ and AM Teams’ Championship — over the course of 34 races.

Drivers are allocated to the PRO and AM divisions based solely on skill, following which each attempts to place themselves at the highest point within that division’s Standings over the course of 28 races.

At the end of these races The Showdown begins; wherein only the top 10 drivers from the PRO division, top 5 drivers from the AM division and the top 3 teams from each are allowed to compete for their respective divisions’ titles over the remaining 7 races.

Each race comprises of four, 15-minute rounds, which are broadcast to an audience of nearly 2.000 sim-racing & gaming enthusiasts on iRacing LIVE and ApexRacing TV’s official YouTube channel every Thursday at 8 P.M. GMT; the MotorsTV broadcasts of the race are then televised a week later with two repeats, amid the channel’s audience of nearly 30 million subscribers across 40 countries.

Audience and viewer-base then are expected to be at an all time high this time around, given the Series’ recent procurement of an iRacing title sponsorship, along with the 45 episodes of MotorsTV International screen time that came along with it.

As practice for the Season’s opener at Philip Island progresses in top gear this week, independent game developers & gaming artists from both within and outside the Community are being invited to promote their Games, Blogs, YouTube Channels, crowd-funding campaigns and other Gaming projects via Eclectic Motorsport during the Season’s first month of races that span — the 17th of March, 24th of March, 31st of March and 4th of April, 2016. A complete overview of fees and perks, along with all other necessary information needed to do so is linked to at the bottom of this article.

Meanwhile, efforts on the Community’s plans to reach out to a more mainstream audience by involving Video Game publishers and other companies as full team sponsors & participants, that were announced back in January, are still underway. Regardless, be sure to keep an eye for all the independent gaming talent choosing to make their debut via the PRO Series over the course of its season.

The 2016 BSRTC PRO Series’ Video Game Teams Sponsorship Plan

BSRTC PRO Series, Other

 

2016/03/16 22:59:59
To Season Launch

Team Sponsors Onboard

Y84fitE

1.      Introduction

 

Following the success of its biggest season yet – Season Nine that spanned 35 weeks from 19th March, 2015 to 3rd December 2015, featured 50 Drivers, 11 teams, a $10,000 prize fund and a MotorsTV broadcast – the BSRTC PRO Series is already looking to outdo itself this year.

Having recently received IRacing’s support & sponsorship that brings with it 130 hours worth of Motors TV International broadcasts over Season 10, as announced here, the British Sim Racers are now looking to increase its prize fund in keeping with the increasingly large number of drivers entering their names for the season. It hopes to facilitate this via a more rigid Team Sponsorship structure as opposed to the previous year.

In observance of the response Higher Eclectic Ground has received from its independent video game community over the final month of the season – wherein its members were granted the opportunity to sponsor a driver for a race for a small fee and advertise their games during the races’ livestreams and televisions broadcasts – it proposes to create a stronger sim-racing based platform for independent developers to market and showcase their games over 2016.

12391238_442726595921322_8291860579659391903_n

READ: A quick overview of the coverage received by our Community’s Independent Game creators during last season’s race broadcasts.

This platform will have the BSRTC PRO Series’ quality racing at its core while involving established mainstream Video Game entities such as publishers and news outlets as sponsors of racing teams within the Series. The purpose behind this is to attract a larger more varied Video Gaming audience that is not confined to the sim-racing population of IRacing alone.

A larger, varied Video Gaming audience will in turn facilitate the metamorphosis of the BSRTC PRO Series into a widely recognized video gaming event – allowing greater exposure and incentive for the indie game community to debut its creations and avail of exposure like never before.

In accordance with this vision, the BSRTC PRO Series has laid out a format for its 2016 season through the course of this document – detailing sponsorship fees and subsequent splitting of the prize fund.

 

2.      General Season Structure.

 

Season 10 of the BSRTC PRO Series will span 35 weeks from the 17th of March, 2016 to the 8th of December, 2016.

Competing, will be 13 teams of 3 drivers and 2 reserves each. These reserve drivers will be utilized in the absence of either of the primary 3 drivers, in the event of a team race or a race grid that allows for more than 3 drivers per team in general.

Over 40 Drivers have already specified their interest in racing over the next season, by making an initial entry payment of $30. These drivers will now be classified as PRO(Professionals) or AM(Amateurs) by the BSRTC’s administration based on past seasons’ qualification and race performances.

The drivers will now be segregated into 13 teams – each of which can be either a PRO team or an AM team. A PRO team will consist of no AM drivers while an AM team may consist of one PRO driver.

Each of these teams will be competing for their respective shares of a $20,000 prize fund – twice as that of the BSRTC PRO Series’ previous season. Just as last time, this prize fund will be split among the season’s various winners as per a pre-determined structure listed below –


PRO Team Championship Winners.

1st place – $6,000

2nd place – $3,000

3rd place – $1,500

AM Team Championship Winners.

1st place – $3,000

2nd place – $2,00022923874426_c24625e570_h

2nd place – $700

3rd place – $300

AM Drivers’ Championship Winner.

Safest Driver Award.

Total = $20,000

This prize money will be accumulated from –

  • The Drivers’ fees of $8 per race meet.
  • Team Sponsors.

While the event will be commentated and broadcast by ApexRacing TV on YouTube and IRacing Live as the previous season, highlights of the races will also be featured on MotorsTV International over 45 episodes with 2 repeats each that comes with the series’ IRacing title sponsorship.

 

3.      Sponsorship Structure.

The aim, is to have mainstream Video game establishments sponsor full teams via either of the Full Team packages listed above for an entire season, while Independent game developers & other members from the Higher Eclectic Ground community will advertise their games on car roofs via the Per race driver/team sponsorship packages.

Additionally, the ad slots for independent developers and television pop-ups will return – preserving the sim-racing event’s vision as a platform for video game exposure.
