GP Explorer: Squeezie breaks a record! – Social Networks > Influencers



The organization of this event was born during the fourth edition of Z Event 2020, a charity project broadcast on the Twich platform, with the aim of raising funds for various associations. Streamers compete in games, challenge each other, and mobilize their community to get as much money as possible. During the first edition in 2016, the sum of 170,000 euros was donated to the Save the Children association, an INGO which defends the rights of children throughout the world. Two years later in 2020, in addition to the 5,724,337 euros collected for the benefit of Amnesty International, the influencer Squeezie, followed by tens of millions of people on his networks, challenges himself. Create “an IRL Formula Renault tournament” if the kitty, set up that day, reaches a certain amount. At the same time, the 2022 edition of the Z Event broke all records, since the sum of 10 million euros collected was exceeded. An initiative welcomed by the President of the Republic in person, accused by some politicians of making political recovery.

The million people reached

Thing promised, thing due. Two years later, Squeezie revealed the details of the project during a live on Twich on April 5, 2022. The first edition of the GP Explorer is held on October 8, 2022, on the famous Bugatti circuit of Le Mans. Bringing together 22 streamers and web videographers such as Seb la Frit, Gotaga, Prime, divided into eleven teams.
