The SMS-R Driver Network Championship has attracted top eSports teams throughout its inaugural season in 2015. From established outfits like SDL Motorsport and Virtual Drivers by TX3, to newcomers on the scene inspired by the insane speeds and level of pro competition that they have seen in Project CARS.
One of those newcomers is UNITY Motors Racing, a French team less than a year old, but still laser-focused on achieving eSports success in Project CARS. Inspired by its early achievements in the ESL Project CARS Go4 Cups, the team has now started to enter the SMS-R Driver Network Championship rounds too, building up some experience before it enters Season Two in 2016. The early signs are extremely positive, with UNITY drivers already mixing it up with this season’s more established names. There could be a very exciting road ahead for this team!
