The world-leading simulation brand offers an industry-leading product range and will support Team Fordzilla’s drivers with high-end equipment necessary for competition.

Team Fordzilla

Ford launched Team Fordzilla – its first ever esports team – in 2019 with individual teams in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, consisting of hand-picked racers. Each team competes in national competitions with dedicated team captains, with the best drivers representing Team Fordzilla at a European level. Currently, over 40 drivers race under the Team Fordzilla banner. As well as competing in high-level virtual motorsport and hosting the inaugural Fordzilla Cup in 2020, Team Fordzilla continues to launch innovative initiatives including Project P1 – a new Ford-designed vehicle for gaming, designed by gamers that has also been built as a full-scale model.
