Virtually Live teams-up with ABB FIA Formula E Championship to develop ground-breaking ghost racing game

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND (June 8, 2018) - The ABB FIA Formula E Championship has partnered with Virtually Live to create a world’s first in esports, providing the opportunity for fans to race against the Formula E drivers in real-time using a ground-breaking live ghost racing app across multiple platforms starting with mobile and PC - with full virtual reality becoming an addition in the future.
The innovative ghost racing game utilises cutting-edge telemetry and Virtually Live’s proprietary technology platform, allowing a race to be replicated using computer-generated imagery in real-time. The action precisely mirrors the positioning and order out on track, while also allowing fans the chance to clip and share their experiences, achievements and near-misses on social media.
Fans and gamers can also post their best qualifying time and compete after the race has finished, reproducing scenarios and challenges that occurred during previous events. Whether it’s fighting through from the back of the pack or conserving energy and defending against an opponent over a set number of laps - the interactive new game will put fans in the driving seat and enable them to take part in real moments of each race and pitting their skills against friends and rivals.
Users are also able to follow the race live in CGI, becoming the director of their own viewing experience and selecting from multiple trackside and onboard cameras.
