The Legion of Racers have teamed up with the RICE Company Limited (TRCL) to provide children and youth from under-served backgrounds with opportunities to engage with the digital world.
TRCL is a not-for-profit organisation and registered charity with IPC (Institutions of Public Character) status while the LOR is a Singapore simracing, lifestyle and motorsports culture brand.
Called the “Race to Bridge the Digital Divide” programme, the LOR and TRCL will provide a digital experience through racing simulation on the Orchard Road Street Circuit which will allow the beneficiaries to develop hand-eye co-ordination skills coupled with an introduction to the technology behind the experience they will experience at Race Box, a pop up at Mandarin Gallery. The Orchard Road Street Circuit was featured in the E-Cities Championship live broadcast on Mediacorp’s Mewatch in November.
“Race to Bridge the Digital Divide” is aiming to provide for up to 500 beneficiaries with learning experiences, food and beverages and other activities during these community sessions and raise funds for #Engage by TRCL.
Launched in 2020 during the Circuit Breaker, the #Engage initiative saw a collaboration with the Ministry of Education to support more than 800 children from 36 primary and secondary schools through providing online training programmes from visual arts, drama, dance to technology & art activities.

LOR was one of TRCL's partners for the #Engage programme during the circuit breaker in 2020, with the LOR team providing sim racing opportunities in schools for students from under-served families.

“One of our pillars at the LOR has been to engage with the community and to provide opportunities for under-served youth to have new experiences to assist with their development,” said Lim Keong Wee, co-founder of the LOR.
“We are honoured to be able to partner with TRCL in this endeavour during this season of giving,” he added.
The Race Box, a pop up at Mandarin Gallery, will be on till 9 January 2022 and it is within the period that the LOR is hoping to engage as many youth from TRCL’s network as possible. TRCL mandate is to harness the potential of the arts to benefit under-served children and youths in the community.
TRCL manages a social fund (The Business Times Budding Artists Fund), arts centres (The Little Academy and 10 Square Youth) in Northpoint city and Orchard Central and two subsidiaries (Global Cultural Alliance and Millet Holdings).
The project is hoping to raise between $40,000 to $50,000 to provide opportunities for the under-served communities to bridge the digital divide.
