Announcing the partnership, ART managing director and former world champion sim racing driver Alex Simpson said, “We are looking forward to working with Stormforce, our partnership will ensure we compete with the very best equipment on the market but more than that we will help the sim racing community whether new comers or veterans pick the right PC hardware for their use case, through our extensive R&D project that will all be documented in a series of informative videos, reviews and streams.”

Digital Sales Coordinator for the Stormforce Gaming Brand, Marc Faulkner added "From the moment I first spoke to Alex, I knew that ART were the ideal partners for Stormforce, and it has become clear that we had a shared vision for long term collaboration, technical excellence and mutual success. We're excited to have the opportunity to be taking the lead on such a unique R&D project...and of course to hopefully see Stormforce Racing ART on the podium!"
