OverTake is now officially live and ready to become your new hotspot for all things esports racing holds up for you. To celebrate our launch, we will host a special launch stream on Twitch with some of your favorite personalities in sim and arcade racing: the Clash of Racers!
Our Nitro Nights hosts Melek ‘m3lly’ Balgün and Tom Deacon will lead through the event. We have an entertaining show for you in store, but you are not just confined to cheering for the racers on screen – you can participate as well!
When does it start? On Sunday, June 21, at 6.00 PM CEST.
Where can I watch? Simply tune into our official Twitch channel Overtake_gg.
Who is going to play? Two team captains will lead the squads live in our studio. They will be joined by three esports racers and/or influencers and one community racer.
What are we playing? The teams have to compete in seven games: iRacing, Trackmania 2 Stadium, GT Sport, F1 2019/2020, Forza Motorsport 7, Assetto Corsa Competizione and Mario Kart.
The show is called “Clash of Racers” and the name says it all: the two teams are going to duel each other in a mini-Olympics, with a total of seven races in different esports racing and arcade titles. Each team consists of four well-known racers, as well as one of you guys: a community racer. After every discipline, the teams get awarded points depending on their performance.

How can you participate in the Clash of Racers?
Become a community racer and join the captains
If you actively want to be on the show and race together with the racers on set: don’t worry, we got you! As mentioned above, each team features a special community driver.
To take over the community driver’s seat in our Clash of Racers competition, you have to complete a fun challenge in Forza Motorsport 7 beforehand.
Challenge: Complete a lap with the three following missions on the track Spa in Belgium. Whoever has the fastest lap wins a spot in the team.
Missions: Do two donuts in Raidillon, hit 260 km/h before Les Combes and drive the last chicane (bus-stop) backwards.
Share your stunts: Everything needs to be in one round without editing. Upload the clip to YouTube and use the hashtag #OverTakeChallenge. You can also share it on social media afterwards with the same hashtag.
Not only can you present your skills on Twitch and race with our personalities, there will also be great prizes waiting for our community racers: Both participants will get a brand-new AOC AG272FCX6 Gaming Monitor.
