SEM9.Axle Officially Announced
It looks like SEM9 is on a roll, building up their esports brand. They have announced their first sim racing team, a collaboration with Axle Sports - SEM9.Axle! Axle Sports, an organization founded by Alex Yoong back in 2008, have been competing in the sim racing scene over the past few years, with two of their racers, Nabil and Naquib Azlan, winning first place at the recent IUEM eRacing GP. Completing the lineup will be Alister Yoong, another rising star.
“SEAGM is excited to witness the growth of SEM9 as they continue to grow the Malaysian esports scene while evolving into the global scene particularly in the sim racing arena. We are looking forward to sim racing’s growth both locally and in the SEA region,” said Tommy Chieng, CEO of SEAGM and Chairman of SEM9.
While Kevin Wong, Managing Director of SEM9, added, “We are happy and excited to be going on this journey with Alex. Indeed, sim racing is beginning to gain a big traction in this region and we hope to be a dominating force in this field as well. SEM9 strives to be the biggest and most disruptive esports organization in the region. Undoubtedly, with this team, we will be able to reach greater heights together.”
Through this partnership, SEM9 will be providing everything the drivers need to support their sim racing career, including gear and monetary benefits. SEM9.Axle will be making their debut this weekend in the upcoming 24 Hours Le Mans Virtual event. Make sure you catch them in action!
