[/edge_accordion_tab][edge_accordion_tab title=”Biography”]

Wil Vincent started eSports commentary in 2012, following a stint at Birmingham City University’s student radio station as a presenter and committee member. Having worked with Glacier TV for 2 years, including being lead commentator for their Pro and World Championship series broadcasts, he helped found RaceSpot TV in February 2014 with Hugo Luis and Rafael Sanque.

 

From 2014 onwards Wil has been one of the lead commentators on RaceSpot TV, anchoring some of the companies largest broadcast series including the iRacing World Championship Grand Prix Series, VRS GT iRacing World Championship, and McLaren’s iRacing eSports competitions. In addition, across 3 different broadcasters, Wil has been the ‘voice’ of the iRacing Indianapolis 500 since 2013, and has called over 15 virtual Indy 500 races in his eSports commentary career.

 

Over time, Wil has transitioned more to working behind the scenes at RaceSpot TV, overseeing the commentary aspect of company, as well as becoming one of the broadcaster’s main producers of content. This has included overseeing policy and direction over broadcast standards and expectations, as well as driving the ‘added value’ from broadcasts for clients.

 

Wil is recognised for his client relation work, working closely with iRacing, Automotive partners and promotors to put together world class Sim Racing eSports events. Wil played an important role in the development of the iRacing eSports Network, and in 2018 worked closely with Porsche to help them deliver their first ever eSports event, providing commentary, technical and administrative support.

 

Despite this, you will still see him on many a RaceSpot TV broadcast in a variety of roles, supporting new talent and bringing his excitement to a variety of racing series.
