Over the past 10 years Team VVV has worked to cover just about every racing title to some degree, and in that time we’ve seen a massive expansion within the genre. More titles, greater investment, a growing audience and all round improved stature for the genre.
Driven by passion, it has taken a lot of work to grow, but now in an effort to cover more titles it’s not just about one racer covering everything. To maintain the detail expected we need players dedicated to their particular aspect of the genre, and that means expanding the team.
We’re looking for YouTuber’s, Writers and Streamers, and if you would like to join Team VVV, see your videos appear on the Team VVV channel, see games pre-release, play them before anyone and generally share your racing passions. Then we’d like to hear from you.

Training: Kevin is happy to instruct new writers to improve their skills, Alan is available to help video producers in adding a touch of polish to their video presentations. If you’ve not done video editing before, kick off with an Elgato HD60 and Adobe Premiere Elements, the only tools you’ll need.
Depending on your experience and available equipment, applicants will meet publishers and developers, see games early in development behind closed doors, get access to games pre-release and receive games to keep before the review embargoes. Building to this stage will take several months, so applicants will need to be dedicated in churning out the content whatever the weather, being dedicated and trustworthy to get their quality content out there in a timely fashion.
No rose tinted specs, its bloody hard work, whatever the weather, whatever your mood or what you’ve got going on. But ultimately all of the Team VVV staff have found it rewarding, read their experience.
