Late nights spent in front of Playstation or Xbox might pay off for one lucky racing simulator expert. McLaren has announced its search for the best gamer in the World’s Fastest Gamer competition.
The competition is exactly as it sounds and those who feel up to the task will compete to become the best of the best across multiple racing platforms.
Presumably, this means plenty of time with Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport. There must be a deserving prize for those willing to compete, right? Right!
The winner of McLaren’s World’s Fastest Gamer competition will begin the new career as one of the supercar marker’s official Formula 1 simulator drivers. That is right: the winner will earn the living by racing in the virtual world.
The competition will be co-sponsored by Logitech G, the longtime supporter of racing simulator hardware with its professional wheels and pedal setups.
Logitech also helped in founding the incredibly successful GT Academy. And sport media platform GiveMeSport and Sparco have tossed its support in as well.
If you are tempted to join the McLaren team, here’s a brief job description to see if you have what it takes. The winner will receive a one-year contract with McLaren to be the simulator driver.
Additionally, the winner will work alongside McLaren engineers, and at the brand’s technology center as well as Grand Prix circuits around this world, to help develop and improve the vehicles driven by Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne. Not too shabby.
