Yesterday, the World Pro Racing, Development and Entertainment Centre was launched at Montekristo Estate in Luqa. The state-of-the-art centre seeks to provide opportunities to young people and students who are following courses in media studies, enabling them to build digital skills in a virtual environment, with a view to a potential career in esports.

Speaking of the launch in a social media post, Justin Mifsud, Founder and CEO at World Pro Racing maintained, “after four years of passion, determination, endless days working day and night to build a dream which many believed was something that we Maltese are not capable of doing, I can proudly say that we have officially inaugurated our Sim Racing training, development and entertainment facility.”

The facility, which was launched in the presence of the Minister for the Economy and Industry Silvio Schembri and Gaming Malta’s Chief Operating Officer Ivan Filletti, is equipped with 17 simulators, a private simulation room, full telemetry and adjudication system, two broadcasting rooms and a studio for live programmes, Mr Mifsud explained.

“We kept going and going against all odds with a collaborative effort and support from those that believed in us from day one,” Mr Mifsud continued with pride, noting that “it’s not easy to take a big risk and make your life turn upside down with strong winds against you, but if your endeavour is driven and fuelled by purpose, then giving up is never an option.”

Over the years, he continued, the team behind the new centre has built “a solid international brand that puts Malta in the spotlight with worldwide recognition.”

“I always believed in the local product and talent and I assure you that my vision will keep on being fruitful to bring young and upcoming potential athletes to the top,” the CEO wrote, going on to acknowledge the help of his partners Adrian Figallo and George Muscat, as well as the entire team “that gave all their strength and effort to make this happen” along with their sponsors and partners.

Ending the message with some sound leadership advice, he added, “regardless of who you are in this world, life is full of challenges. Whatever your goals or dreams, you’re bound to encounter obstacles before hitting your targets. You’ll always have to fight through hardships and suffer your fair share of pain before you achieve success. But once you reach that success you’ve been working for, it will be that much sweeter.”
