Esports 650x323

The British Motor Museum has teamed up with the University of Warwick this half term from Saturday 23 to Thursday 28 October to host their new, state-of-the-art Esports Centre. This is the first time that the Esports Centre has taken to the road giving visitors to the Museum the opportunity to have a go on one of the 24 gaming stations.

Visitors can immerse themselves in the growing world of esports, pull up a seat, pick up a controller and try their hand at some popular racing games. Have a go at Rocket League or F1 2020 or compete against others in the Trackmania Time Trial for the chance to win GAME vouchers or an exclusive racing game coaching session with a seasoned racing game player! The Esports Centre will be open for first timers through to seasoned players with experts from the University of Warwick on hand to provide assistance if required. There is also an accessible gaming kit which can be used for any game.

This is your chance to see what they're all about and have some fun! These gaming sessions are just part of our half-term offering, there will also be object handling, the Black Cat trail and the ever popular Science Shows!”
