UK motor racing brand McLaren Racing has announced that it will host Stream for Mind, a charity gaming event, to help fundraise for the team’s charity partner Mind this week.

The event is set to take place on Thursday October 28th 2021 from 6pm to 8pm BST, featuring two British sporting icons: McLaren Formula 1 driver and Quadrant stream team founder Lando Norris, as well as host, pundit and former Arsenal FC and England footballer, Ian Wright.

Both Lando and Ian will be participating live from the team’s newly launched McLaren Shadow Studio.

They will be joined by a line-up of influencers who will also take part and will be announced shortly through McLaren Racing’s social media channels. Participants will play across both F1 2021 and Rocket League.

Stream for Mind will be live streamed on the McLaren Shadow Twitch channel, with fans able to access the stream and donate to Mind via McLaren Racing and Mind’s social media platforms.

The money raised will help Mind to support the one in four of us who will experience a mental health problem every year.

McLaren first entered esports back in 2017, after it said it saw an opportunity in the space between virtual and real racing ‘to increase accessibility through giving people access to an incredible racing experience’.

McLaren Racing was founded by New Zealand racing driver Bruce McLaren in 1963. The team entered its first Formula 1 race in 1966, since then McLaren has won 20 Formula 1 world championships.

This time last year, UK football legend Ian Wright helped parents play video games safely with their kids as part of a Get Set Go campaign.
