Lamborghini’s The Real Race virtual racing competition is evolving into an e-sports team.
In 2020, Lamborghini launched The Real Race, a one-make virtual championship where racers take Lamborghinis around the track to make for an event almost as intense as the real thing. Now, Lamborghini has formed a team of drivers from The Real Race and the sim racing world, and this new team is going to compete in the GT World Challenge Esports Sprint Series Europe, and the 2022 Intercontinental GT Challenge Esports Endurance Championship. The two calendars start on April 6 and April 16 respectively. The Sprint Series starts at Misano and concludes at Monza, and the Intercontinental Championship starts at Bathurst and ends with 9 Hours of Kyalami.
