The Norwegian esports organisation’s entry into the ESL R1 marked its first foray into virtual racing, and now it has a new hardware partner.

The deal will see Virtual Racing School branding on the livery of the team’s Porsche 911 GT3 R (992) within the Rennsport platform and the team practising using its devices.

The partnership with VRS is logical, considering how the in-person LAN event makes use of the company’s sim racing equipment.

VRS’ range expanded of late, following on from its existing DirectForce Pro direct drive wheel base, it now offers matching pedals and recently launched its first steering wheel.

In fact, the Formula Steering Wheel was soft-launched at the inaugural ESL R1 round in Poland earlier this year.

“At Heroic, we are committed to supporting our athletes in every way possible, and this partnership with VRS is a testament to that commitment,” read the announcement statement.

“We are excited to work with VRS and their expert team to help our racers achieve their full potential and be competitive at the highest level.”

HEROIC joins the likes of R8G Esports and Apex Racing who are also partnered with VRS for the competition. It fields Tommy Østgaard, Oskar Biksrud, Mikkel Gade and Tuomas Tähtelä.
