Lamborghini was created with the spirit of performance cars and racing playing an important part from the very beginning. Today, Lamborghini’s racing efforts stretch far and wide, and even reach beyond the real world through Esports racing. Lamborghini’s own The Real Race series brings Lamborghini’s Super Trofeo racing to Assetto Corsa Competizione for a virtual competition that is just as intense, exhilarating, and suspenseful as the real thing. The announcement of the 2023 season marks the fourth iteration of the series, and a refreshed format means it’s more exciting than ever.
With the new format, aspiring Esports stars are able to show their talent live at real-world racing venues in Europe like Circuit Paul Ricard, Spa-Francorchamps, and the Nürburging. The fastest driver at each event will earn a wild card entry into the season’s Grand Final. In addition, the first global partner to the racing series are the Lamborghini Abu Dhabi and Lamborghini Dubai dealers, who have organized simulator tours around schools and universities to find virtual driving talent, with the three best students participating in the final as UAE representatives. The prize of winning the series is invaluable for an Esports driver: the opportunity to become an Automobili Lamborghini Esports Team factory driver, as despite its virtual venue, Esports racing is quickly becoming really exciting.
