Lamborghini Esports is launching the third edition of its virtual competition, The Real Race, which returns this year with an all-new format in all three regions, Europe/Middle East/Africa, North America/Latin America and Asia-Pacific. The competition has become an important meeting place for simulation pilots from all over the world following the success of the first two editions. This year, the winner will have the opportunity to become an official member of the Lamborghini Esports team, which was launched in 2022. And like the previous two seasons, all races will be held on the Assetto Corsa Competizione game.

A new format for this third edition of The Real Race
Lamborghini recently presented its first official esports team for the most important virtual races dedicated to sim racing. The creation of this team is the result of the massive experience acquired with The Real Race competition. It is also an opportunity to further extend the visibility of the brand in a constantly evolving sector and above all to give users experiences comparable to those of a real race. Currently made up of three simulation pilots, Jordan Sherratt, Gianfranco Giglioli and Giorgio Simonini, the big winner of the championship will perhaps have the chance to join this official team this year.

“With this new edition of The Real Race, we are proud to once again show our commitment and passion for Esports racing. The competition is a great way to engage with the next generation and expand our community. We’re confident gamers will have the best possible experience with the new Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2, and we’re excited to find out which driver will have the opportunity to join our brand new Lamborghini Esports team at the end of the competition. »said Christian Mastro, Marketing Director of Automobili Lamborghini.

For this edition, Lamborghini has decided to change the format of the competition, which will now include different events:

– Elimination phases: at the end of the four elimination phases, one winner per group will be chosen to join the group phase directly. All other competitors will receive points and the top 20 in each qualifier will have the option to wait for the next stage.

– Group stage: There will be six days for the group stage of the competition, divided by regions. Each day will consist of two races played and the participants will again be decided by a points system. The top 15 will qualify for the Grand Final.

– The Last Chance: An in-game event will give one driver per region the chance to reach the final stage.

– The Final: The three finals will be played in one day and the first 16 will compete for the ultimate title. The winner will have the chance to join the official sports team.

A successful 2021 edition
The 2021 edition of The Real Race brought together more than 3,100 drivers competing in several races between June and November. The public was also very involved, with more than 1.15 million spectators throughout the tournament. At the end of the final, which took place on the mythical Misano Adriatico circuit, Jordan Sherratt became Lamborghini’s first official simulation driver and joined the ranks of this newly created esports team in 2022.

This year, the best simulation drivers in the world will compete again in the racing game Assetto Corsa Competizione at the wheel of a Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo 2, the new version of the racing vehicle which will be the only car of the three series continental competition. Participants will be able to drive the digital version of the latest high-performance Lamborghini race car.

Assetto Corsa Competizione was developed in collaboration with car manufacturers and provides dynamic support for Lamborghini’s latest racing series. The game is also used by official Lamborghini Squadra Corse test and race drivers in their preparations for physical races. And as Lamborghini wants to give the whole world a chance to join the competition and become the next generation simulation driver, the famous brand announces good news for all fans of racing games: Assetto Corsa Competizione will be free on steam during the first weekend of competition from May 5 to 8, 2022.

A broad commitment to esports
This third edition of The Real Race will continue to prove Lamborghini’s support and commitment to the esports scene. After launching its virtual competition in 2020, Automobili Lamborghini has signed partnerships with leading gaming brands in the esports scene such as Rocket League and Asphalt 9: Legends, which offer players the opportunity to drive Lamborghini models, such as the Huracán STO or the Essenza SCV12.
