MSI has announced its partnership with the Mercedes-AMG Team Craft-Bamboo Racing for the upcoming Bathurst 12 Hour! This partnership marks MSI’s first involvement in the real world of 4-wheel motorsport.
With the rapid global rise in popularity of sim racing and gaming, MSI said that it remains committed to bringing the best products to enable racers and gamers to achieve success in the virtual and real world of racing.
