The winners of the inaugural VCO SIMMY AWARDS have been named. In the online award ceremony broadcast on Boxing Day (available on YouTube HERE), the winners were chosen in a total of eleven categories. Ahead of the event, Esports racing fans around the world had the opportunity to participate in an online voting for their favourites.

The results were rounded off by votes from the well-known members of an expert jury. Virtual Competition Organisation (VCO) is donating 1,000 Euro to good causes on behalf of each of the prize winners.
 

The big winners of the evening were Jarno Opmeer (BEST ESPORTS RACER), Max Verstappen (BEST REAL-WORLD PRO) and Jimmy Broadbent, who topped the voting in the BEST SOCIAL MEDIA category and also became the first personality to be included in the ‘Hall of Fame’ for the VCO SIMMY AWARDS.

The SIMMY for the BEST TEAM went to Team Redline. More than 4,200 votes were submitted in the online polls and the votes from the well-known members of the jury accounted for 50 percent of the final total.
 

“The VCO SIMMY AWARDS represent the culmination of an unbelievable year for Esports racing,” said Florian Haasper, CEO of the VCO. “In these tough times during the pandemic, this sport has found many new fans all over the world. With the SIMMYS, we intend to honour important personalities, teams, platforms and brands from Esports racing and review the year together with them. There was an immense amount of feedback about this new competition from the community.

Many thanks to everyone who voted and to our VCO SIMMY AWARDS jury, of course. Congratulations to the winners! The fact that we were all able to do something for good causes makes the SIMMYS the perfect way for us to round off the year.”
