Posted on 21/10/2016

Hype Energy is driving in the right direction with new eSports collaboration with FORZA team LMP Motorsports.

 

LMP Motorsports are a virtual racing team competing in the TORA Endurance Championship playing the Forza Motorsport series.

 

Hype Energy has close affiliations with eSports and racing, as their partnerships with Sahara Force india F1, Epsilon eSports and CAZ eSports demonstrate. So when LMP Motorsports approached us, we were very excited as the talented team fit perfectly into Hype’s ethos and social media plans.

Steve Thomas (LMP Dragon), the captain and founder explained to us some of the history and success of LMP Motorsports: “I formed LMP on the 11th October 2011 and joined TORA in 2013. Since then, we have slowly grown to a team of around 15 dedicated drivers running in all sorts of championships, from the GT category, to big rigs and even touring cars. The team have achieved several top 3 team championship finishes and have even won a team title in a one make series known as the spec cup, with us regularly making the top level of drivers in any given championship.”
