Have we been waiting for another platform on the topic of Simracing? There are already many sites. Each one covers its niche: From the gamer to the professional, from the console gamer to the hardcore fan on the gaming PC for many thousands of Euros, as well as for the hardware from the cell phone to the high-quality simulator. The new thing about OverTake: The platform wants to embrace everyone who spends minutes or hours, days or weeks immersing themselves in their very personal world of racing. The choice of games is huge: From arcade games like Need for Speed to the most realistic motorsport simulations like iRacing. The bracket: Whether cell phone gamer or professional sports racer, for everyone it's all about speed, about duels, about tenths of seconds, about the tingling feeling of winning. Everyone can dive into this world - and that absolutely without danger for body and car.

Let's have a look at OverTake (www.overtake.gg): Already on the homepage around 60 topics are touched upon. There you'll find word and video sequences about Forza Horizon for Xbox, the technical features of Playstation 5, tips and tricks for managing the official Formula 1 game "F1 2020". Or we find out that the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup will award a prize money of 200,000 US dollars. Then we come across detailed discussions with Nicolas Longuet and Lucas Blakeley, two drivers of the "F1 Esports Pro Series 2020". NitroNights is the name of a weekly sports show that provides entertaining insights across the scene.

By the way, there was one question left unanswered: maybe not everyone knows Jarno Opmeer? The up-and-coming racer from the Netherlands has switched from the real race track to the virtual track. There he fills the role of Lewis Hamilton: Six podium places in the first six races, the 20-year-old is well on the way to winning the "F1 Esports Pro Series 2020". The prize money involved is 750,000 dollars. For real now.
