Young men in the United States are more interested in watching esports than they are regular sports, according to new survey
findings published by company Limelight Networks.

Surveying a total of 4,000 people of different ages, genders and education levels from countries like France, Germany, India,
Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, United Kingdom, and United States, Limelight found that while esports are at the bottom
of the list when it comes to global viewership, 22 percent of "American millennials," out of 500 Americans polled, say they
regularly watch competitive gaming. More interestingly, males between the ages of 18 and 25 in the United States say they
prefer esports over traditional sports – coming in second overall in preferred media behind movies. The results were collected
between June 22nd and June 25th.

Project Cars 2 is coming this month, but we recently asked game director Stephen Viljoen about a whole
load of topics (the full article can be found here), including esports, with Viljoen telling us that there's a
lot to look forward to in this department.

"Project Cars was a big hit with the ever-competitive sim-racing community. Our focus for Project Cars 2
then was to get the esports component into the game from the ground-up, and that has resulted in a few
new additions to the game that will make Project Cars an even stronger player in the esports arena. Top of
that list of new additions is the new Competitive Racing License, and new Broadcast and Director Modes."
