HyperX has announced it is joining forces with the Red Bull Racing Esports team as the official peripheral partner.
“Red Bull has been a longstanding partner of HyperX, whether running LIVE arena tournaments or competitions, so it was a natural progression to expand our partnership to include sponsorship of the Red Bull Racing Esports team. We also see a lot of synergy between our brands as Red Bull ‘gives wings’ to people and ideas. HyperX is driven by passion to shape the culture of gaming and empower each individual to achieve their best,” said HyperX – EMEA vice president Paul Leaman.
To provide a competitive edge and take their esports racing to the next level, Red Bull Racing Esports will have access to HyperX’s gaming mice and keyboards and Cloud headsets for training and competitions. As part of the partnership, HyperX branding will be featured on the team kit and in-game livery of the team cars.
“We are incredibly proud of the growth and success of our esports team, which is in turn enabling us to partner with other market leaders in this space. Competing in such a wide variety of sim racing series relies on maintaining absolute focus and concentration during training and competition. Our drivers process a huge volume of audio and visual information incredibly quickly and need to react in an instant without distraction. Having the right peripherals is crucial and our new partnership with HyperX will enhance the audio experience and competitiveness of our sim racers,” said Red Bull Racing Honda chief marketing officer Oliver Hughes.
