Who was the best Esports racer of last season? Who was the best team? And which hardware was the most convincing? VCO will be answering these questions and more at the end of the year with a special award ceremony. With the ‘SIMMY’, VCO will acknowledge exceptional achievements in the Esports racing sector in 11 categories, and present the most distinctive contenders with a specially designed trophy.
In the search for the most successful participants, VCO will be relying on the expertise of a distinguished jury of Esports racers – as well as the opinion of the community. Fans from around the world not only get to vote for their favourites in the various categories, they also get to decide the nominees. Then the voting for the top three nominations will be open from 26th November to 6th December. The jury’s decision and the votes from the Esports racing community will have equal weighting in the result.
