PondeN, a 21-year-old Australian Twitch broadcaster from the Gold Coast who specialises in Formula One, has amassed tens of thousands of followers on Twitch since launching his Twitch channel in 2019.
His technical expertise and understanding of both real-world and virtual racing will be a great asset to the Teams expanding Twitch video portfolio.
In order to establish a schedule of live broadcasts, social material, and chances for interaction with the Teams Esports drivers across numerous channels, he will join F1Elly as a member of Oracle Red Bull Racing Esports team of content creators.
This is truly a dream come true, and its something Ive been working towards for a very long time, said PondeN. Since I was 12 years old, I have grown up watching and participating in Esports, and I recall Red Bull being a part of the scene from the very beginning. I can still clearly remember when Red Bull partnered with my favourite Call of Duty player, Nadeshot, and I used to dream of working with the company myself. Nine years later, here we are! I simply want to express my gratitude to everyone who has helped me so far, starting with just one viewer stream and continuing now.
PondeN will host the F1 Esports Series Pro in an effort to strengthen the bond between F1 and F1 Esports.
PondeN continued, "Sim racing has so much to give that I think is currently underutilised. To demonstrate that races in iRacing, rFactor2, Assetto Corsa, and the official F1 game can be equally as entertaining as real world races, I want to help close the gap between real world racing and sim racing. The watchalongs of the F1 Esports Series are a wonderful place to start.
PondeN streams sim racing games like iRacing while live-blogging F1 race weekends on his Twitch channel.
On Friday, October 14th, fans may catch him in action on the Oracle Red Bull Racing Esports Twitch channel. To ensure that you dont miss out, follow the team on Twitch.
