One Esports project that worked out so well last year that it has been expanded to sim racing this season. Under the maxim ‘United in Rivalry’, G2 Esports has been supported by BMW in ‘League of Legends’ since in 2020 and has established itself as one of the very best teams.

G2 Esports is also a top team on the sim racing scene – particularly on the Assetto Corsa Competizione simulation platform. G2 Esports made its debut as one of the four BMW Motorsport SIM Racing teams on 9th January when drivers Nils Naujoks and Arthur Kammerer (both GER) competed in the SimGrid Endurance Cup in a virtual BMW M6 GT3.

However, they missed out on a top-ten result after a technical issue within the simulation. The race series also includes rounds at Paul Ricard in February and Silverstone in March.

“BMW has been a partner of G2 Esports for over a year, and we could not be prouder or happier to now extending this partnership into the world of motor racing,” said G2 Esports CEO Carlos ‘Ocelote’ Rodriguez. “Thanks to the longstanding commitment of Danny Engels and Nils Naujoks, G2 Esports has established itself as a big name in sim racing.”

They have previously challenged for race wins and titles in the BMW Z4 GT3 on the virtual Nordschleife, but last Saturday saw them enter uncharted territory with BMW Motorsport and the entire sim racing community on the iRacing platform. They were among the first to go racing in the new BMW M4 GT3.

Bruno Spengler (CAN) and Kay Kaschube (GER) were at the wheel for BS+COMPETITION. BMW Team GB, run by Williams Esports, lined up for the 3-hour race with BMW works driver Jesse Krohn (FIN) and Alessandro Bico (ITA). The two teams finished third and fourth in a top-four lock-out for the virtual BMW M4 GT3.

“We raced in virtual BMWs last year, but to now be an official BMW Motorsport SIM Racing team makes us all very proud,” said Spengler, who is both a BMW works driver in the world of real racing, and also team captain of BS+COMPETITION in sim racing.

“We have a great mix of real racing drivers, who are also extremely quick in the racing simulator, and some of the best sim racers in the world. This year will be a challenge that we are all very much looking forward to.”

Team Redline and Williams Esports in action in GT racing and Formula E.

The first joint outing of BMW Motorsport and Team Redline will be the first iRacing Special of the year on 23rd/24th January for the 24 Hours of Daytona. BS+COMPETITION and BMW Team GB will also run cars in this race, meaning the three BMW Motorsport SIM Racing teams will go head to head for the first time.

Team Redline and BMW Team GB are back in action just one week later, when they race with the BMW iFE.21 in the virtual version of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship named ‘Formula E: Accelerate’. The series comprises six events between January and March, each on a Thursday.

“We are extremely excited about the coming year. We believe we are a very good match for BMW, with its motorsport history and vision of the future for sim racing,” said Dom Duhan, founder and head of Team Redline.

“New challenges and more top-level competitions await us in 2021. Our collaboration with BMW will hopefully give us the opportunity to enjoy great success at many different events.

Vivocom’s Group Game Changer – Multi-Billion Sand Project Secured

  • Initial contract worth RM3.79 billion for three years
  • Aspires to be a major industry player 'with exponential growth prospects'


KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - Media OutReach - 26 February 2021 - In a filing to Bursa Malaysia this evening, Vivocom Intl Holdings Berhad ('Vivocom') announced that V Development Group via one of its subsidiaries has secured a 'massive win' worth approximately USD934.7 million or the equivalent of RM3.79 billion.

Rain International Sdn Bhd ('Rain International') is a 97% owned subsidiary under the V Development Group which was recently merged into the Vivocom Group. The Company's proposed acquisition of V Development Group had been recently approved by the relevant authorities.

Rain International is principally involved in the mineral trading and exportation business, supplying sand to its client mainly in Hong Kong and China for reclamation and construction works. The Company had recently signed a contract for the supply of marine sand for a minimum period of three years.

The contract is for the supply of sand to Zhen Hua Engineering Company Ltd-China Communications Construction Company Ltd-CCCC Dredging (Group) Company Ltd. (ZHEC-CCCC-CDC), a Joint Venture contractor appointed to undertake the main reclamation works for the Hong Kong International Airport Three Runway System Project.

Director Mr William Chan Ching-Kee said: "As the appointed agent for the ZHECC-CCCC-CDC Joint Venture, we are looking forward to the exportation of sand from Malaysia to our client in Hong Kong to commence without any further delay."

Dato Seri Chia is optimistic that the contract would be extended for another two to three years and could potentially generate revenue of up to RM6 billion.

"The sand business is a major boost because it gives us tremendous visibility. The potential revenue is huge, recurring and highly scalable," its jubilant CEO, Dato Seri Chia Kok Teong exclaimed.

"The potential for explosive growth in the sand business is real and tangible, and bodes well for the Group in the next few years."

"We are starting with 3 years but the contract can easily be increased to 5 years and beyond, with higher tonnage shipped every 6 months. The exportation of sand will increase sharply over time," he added.

Besides the reclamation works for the Hong Kong International Airport, the rapid pace of construction and reclamation works in China and Singapore also requires heavy demand for sand, which is a considerable boon to Malaysia.

"The market for sand export is extremely humongous and will fuel the Group's rapid growth for the next several years. The RM3.79 billion Win is the first of many more to come."

"I have in fact urged my team to secure up to RM10 billion worth of sand contracts by the end of 2021. This is part of our overall transformation strategy to become a multi billions conglomerate," declared Dato Seri Chia.

"It is our core strategy to strengthen and diversify the Group's revenues generation capabilities and capacities and not be too narrowly focussed."

"Presently, we are already in negotiations for another RM2 to RM3 billion sand contract. Once finalised, we will make the relevant announcement as per Bursa Malaysia's requirements," Dato Seri Chia elaborated.

The sand would be procured from an approved permit holder to export sand overseas, and sourced from concession areas in Sandakan and Sungai Beluran in Sabah and throughout Malaysia.

"Even with this massive sand contract already secured, we will not be complacent. I have earlier promised to transform Vivocom into a behemoth Conglomerate and I will work non-stop to deliver on the promise," Dato Seri assured.

Since Dato Seri Chia's entry into Vivocom in January 2020 when its price was at 15 cents, the share has climbed sharply and last closed at RM1.06 on Thursday, 25th February 2021.

"I am very optimistic that Vivocom shares will continue to grow strongly and be worth a lot more than presently over time. I'm proud to say that we are no longer a penny stock," he reflected.

"My team is totally committed to building Vivocom into a reputable and profitable public company, one with solid fundamentals, sustainable profits and healthy cashflows."

"As a priority, we will work towards getting the Group elevated to the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia and be a dividends-paying company soonest possible," quipped Dato Seri.

To show his commitment, Dato Seri Chia has undertaken a voluntary self--imposed moratorium (or SIM) in that he will not dispose his personal stakes in Vivocom for the next 3 years. This will ensure the company's long-term price stability and sustainability.

"We want a stable and strong share price so that the Company can use its shares with its high liquidity as a currency for M&A activities to fund and fast-track expansion and growth," he explained.

"A strong share with high liquidity is a most valuable and prized asset. We will use it to buy Companies with game-changing and disruptive strategies. To look for the Next Big Thing."

"The enormous followings in the Company are what is driving in tremendous liquidity and momentum giving our share price added impetus," Dato Seri proudly asserts.

"We aspire to emulate Berkshire Hathaway strategy started over 40 years ago by Mr Warren Buffet. Mr Masayoshi Son built SoftBank Group of Japan along the same philosophy and Alphabet in US adopted similar strategies."

"These three companies are presently amongst the most valuable and admired companies in the world. I have the same dream for Vivocom. I am determined to leave behind an enduring legacy for all our valued shareholders," concluded Dato Seri Chia.
