The third and final event of Red Bull Homestretch is upon us! This virtual racing event is led by a new lineup of athletes, celebs, and professional drivers including TikTok personality Jaden Hossler, rapper BLXST, Orlando Magic point guard Cole Anthony and Formula 1 Red Bull Racing Honda Grand Prix winner Sergio “Checo” Pérez among many others.
On Thursday, June 10th, 2021 guests will start their virtual engines on Gran Turismo Sport via PlayStation 5 for this irreverent take on virtual racing, live-streamed on Red Bull Twitch and Red Bull Motorsports YouTube.
It’s lights out on the grid for Red Bull Homestretch as nine new a-list drivers start their engines for the third and final event of the three-part virtual race series on Thursday, June 10th, 2021 live-streamed on Red Bull Twitch and Red Bull Motorsports YouTube (Digital Copy of Gran Turismo Sport provided courtesy of PlayStation). Viewers can expect driver banter and witty exchanges from the competitors as they balance navigating fresh racetracks for the first time and sudden live rule changes while playing Gran Turismo Sport (Rated E with Use of Alcohol and Tobacco).
Although most of this week’s participants are not professional drivers by trade, their competitive nature will undoubtedly come alive – in an irreverent way – as they get creative to fight their way to the top of the virtual podium. Whether that be via forming alliances, sending it full gas to the finish line, or using their verbal persuasion skills to petition viewer support via “Bull Coins,” expect drivers to pull out all the stops in the quest for victory. The viewers have more influence than ever before with the ability to accrue Bull Coin viewer points through their watch time and vote on racetracks and on-the-fly rule changes. Viewers can use Bull Coins from the virtual sidelines to cheer their favorites on to glory, may see their username visible during the show, and even receive shoutouts from the drivers themselves. Tune in to the live broadcast to find out more.
