Early this week, Tuason Racing School, together with Phoenix Pulse, staged a virtual contest for car racing and gaming enthusiasts to come together to lend a helping hand in the country’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
For every player who joins, Tuason Racing will donate a meal to one of the frontliners in Metro Manila’s hospitals. Aside from the commitment to provide meals, the event was also successful in pooling together cash donations which will also go directly to the brave frontliners.
“Expanding into esports is one of the highlights of our 21st year in the business. We have been bringing racers to compete all over the world. This time we are opening another career ladder, a virtual one,” said JP Tuason of the prestigious racing school. “With the ongoing situation, we believe we can hit two birds with one stone, first is to be able to do our part and help frontliners. The second one is to provide racing enthusiasts a worthwhile activity while they stay home and help flatten the curve.” He added.
LG Philippines also joins the #RaceForFrontliners as the official display partner of Tuason Racing. LG’s industry leading OLED TVs will be used to broadcast the race as it happens during the Live Games after the Enhanced Community Quarantine is lifted. Thanks to its fast response, fluid motion, crisp details, and certified eye comfort display, LG’s OLED TV technology is a versatile gaming companion. Should you want a dedicated gaming monitor that lets you experience each and every element of the virtual world to the fullest, LG’s UltraGear Gaming Monitor is perfect for you.
Speaking regarding LG’s participation in the online race, LG Managing Director Inkwun Heo says “We admire and wholeheartedly support Tuason Racing School and Phoenix Pulse for their initiative in both helping out the frontliners as well as fostering an environment of friendly competition. A sense of normalcy during these times is something that everyone needs. We at LG are more than happy to lend a hand in any way we can.”
Tuason Racing’s next #RaceForFrontliners online elimination event happens on April 29th. You can watch the event live streamed in their Facebook page, which will be hosted by Tuason Racing CEO and Founder JP Tuason.
