Altus partner with Andretti Autosport in World Championship
Altus driver Beau Albert will represent Andretti Autosport in their first foray into the Esports world, contesting the iRacing Rallycross World Championship.
Altus Esports and our loyal partners Logitech G, ASTRO Gaming, Racetech USA and Cube Controls are joining us in this entry which is due to kick off this weekend with Round 1 from Hell Lånkebanen.
Driving the Gainbridge VW Beetle, Beau Albert said "To represent Andretti Autosport in the iRX World Championship is a tremendous privilege for me. It was clear to me very quickly that the Andretti team is backing this effort in the Sim racing World very heavily, which is a big confidence booster for myself heading into the new season. I think together there are some fantastic results ahead of us, and I cannot wait for the season to get underway this Saturday."
Chairman & CEO Michael Andretti stated "I’m really excited to field Beau and Vicente under the Andretti Autosport banner in the upcoming iRacing Rallycross World Championship. This will be the team’s first outing into eSports as an official championship entry and I’m looking forward to the new opportunities it may bring."
Altus Team Manager Simon Feigl added "Heading into the World Championship and understanding how we could be integrating with other real world teams, immediately Andretti Autosport stood out to us as a team we'd like to collaborate with on this. We're privileged to have worked with the Walkinshaw Andretti United team for Esports activities in Australia, so furthering that now with Andretti Autosport made a lot of sense, and is a real honour for Beau, Altus Esports and all of our partners."
We'll be streaming the races LIVE from our Facebook page each and every week, as well Andretti Autosport. Be sure to watch out for the #27 Gainbridge Andretti Autosport Beetle, as Beau Albert takes on the world!
