Foremost Nigeria’s motorsport organiser, Work and Play, is set to launch the first local streetcar racing app to be hosted on both ios and android platforms.
Founder of the group, Ade Ojuoko, said the gaming application was necessary to expand the offering of the group to motorsports, and the sporting industry in Nigeria.
“The Nigeria motorsports community is filled with potential, and with pockets of events here and there, especially ones that we are engaged in, we believe we can achieve more by helping people get a virtual experience of what the sport has on offer,” he said.
Ojuoko said the app is intended to engage the racers and enthusiasts during down-time and to generate engagement for new demographics that are hampered by a number of factors from being part of live motorsports events.
“Today, we have proven records of our support for a number of live motorsport events in different parts of the country, and that has exposed us to other grounds for development, that this app will help us plug,” he added.
The app, according to him, will be unveiled as part of the Nigeria Tourism Week event on Friday, November 26, at the MUSON Centre in Lagos.
Ojuoko said that the launch of the app will include a live demonstration of the features of the software and the narrative of the idea behind it by the designers and the team of Work and Play.
