“Launching my own sim racing team is a proud moment because I’m passionate about motorsport, innovation and embracing new challenges,” Grosjean said upon the official reveal.

“The outfit will be partnering kart manufacturer Praga Karts, which is set to provide a real-life test for R8G’s drivers – who can then ‘potentially go forward to contest the X30 World Championship event at Le Mans’.

“We’ve all seen the driver talent that is emerging from simracing and it’s impressive.

“Our goal is to reward and try to develop those drivers that have the potential to race for real.”

Grosjean has taken delivery of a simulator recently and is expected to make an appearance this weekend at the Nurburgring 24 Hours on the iRacing platform.
