The first edition of The Real Race by Lamborghini eSports in 2020 was a great success and delighted more than 2.500 drivers from 109 countries. This year, the competition is taking place for the second time and is kicking off with a new and improved tournament format that introduces three regional elimination tournaments for drivers in EMEA, the Americas and Asia-Pacific. Once again, the world's leading sim racers will compete against each other at the wheel of a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO in the simulation racing game Assetto Corsa Competizione. In addition to the chance to become the first official Lamborghini SIM driver, there is an unforgettable experience in the form of an invitation to the Lamborghini headquarters in Italy.
Second “The Real Race” edition!
The racing simulation Assetto Corsa Competizione was developed together with automobile manufacturers and offers a dynamic platform for the latest racing series from Lamborghini. The game is used by the official test and racing drivers of the Lamborghini Squadra Corse for training purposes. After the premiere in 2020, which was won by the German sim racer Nils Naujoks, Lamborghini eSports is introducing global innovations in the tournament schedule of The Real Race this year. All racing drivers will compete in both the traditional Grand Prix and three endurance races in order to collect points in the respective regional rankings.
The thrilling e-sports tournament of the luxury super sports car brand will be held by the sim racing community behind the wheel of the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO, the three-time winner of the Daytona 24-hour race. The in-house design department Lamborghinis Centro Stile designed an exclusive racing paintwork for the tournament, which can be customized in 12 different versions by the participants. Each car bears the brand logos of the partners Kaspersky and Assetto Corsa Competizione.
Tournament from June to November
The tournament is held from June to November. Racers from all over the world can register for the open qualification races, which take place Monday through Friday. The best 40 players from the open qualification races take part in the closed qualification, which takes place every Saturday. The best 20 participants then take part in The Real Race on Sunday, where they compete against each other twice on the same route. In a total of 10 weekly qualification tournaments per region, participants can collect points in their respective regional ranking and thus climb the ranking list to become the next regional champion.
“E-sports is an area in which we want to play an important role,” said Federico Foschini, Chief Marketing & Sales Officer at Lamborghini. “The Real Race is a six month event where players around the world can experience the thrill of real competition by preparing for and participating in races against some of the best sim racers in the world. We are proud to host this tournament and to give the winner of The Real Race not only a real experience in the world of Lamborghini, but also the prospect of a career in esports. ”
Lamborghini underscores its commitment to e-sports
The second edition of The Real Race underscores Lamborghini's commitment to the esports scene. After the start of the first digital tournament last year, Automobili Lamborghini entered into partnerships with well-known game brands in the esports scene, including Rocket League and Asphalt 9: Legends. Lamborghini models such as the Huracán STO and the Essenza SCV12 can be driven in both games.
