CORE Gaming on the grid with MotoGP™ Virtual Sports deal

CORE Gaming has sealed a landmark partnership with Dorna Sports to develop a MotoGP-branded Virtual Sports game for the championship.

The on-demand title will utilise the CORE HTML5 framework and innovative WebGL 3D browser technology, which has been already been demonstrated to the public successfully through a Virtual Sports partnership with Sky Vegas.

With household names such as multiple World Champions Jorge Lorenzo, Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa, the world’s premier motorcycle racing series has a loyal following of tens of millions of fans across the globe.

To complement this groundbreaking partnership with MotoGP, one of the series’ up-and-coming British riders, who will be announced in due course, is being lined up to serve as a CORE Gaming partner through to 2017.

Justin Chamberlain, Chief Executive of CORE Gaming, said: “This partnership with Dorna Sports, offers our customers the chance to tap into MotoGP, a globally-recognised and revered brand.

“MotoGP is massively popular worldwide, and you only need to see one race packed full of incidents, speed and skill to see why that’s the case. Our goal is to bring that same high-octane action into our Virtual Sports portfolio and to keep pushing boundaries in the industry.”

Pau Serracanta, Managing Director of Dorna’s Commercial Area, commented: “Reaching this agreement with CORE Gaming is an important step into the world of online gambling, with its Virtual Sports game giving users the chance to enjoy MotoGP on a whole new level, immersing them even further into the sport they love. I look forward to this new partnership with CORE Gaming and eagerly await the game’s release.”
