The second edition of the Lamborghini eSports ‘The Real Race’ returns with a new and upgraded regional format that features three tournaments across Asia, America, and Europe. The world’s leading sim racers will compete by driving a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO in the simulation racing game, Assetto Corsa Competizione.

In this edition, racers will get to compete in traditional Grand Prix and three endurance races, where they can earn points within respective regional leaderboards.
The competition will start in June and run till November, in which racers from around the globe can sign up for open qualifiers which run on weekdays from Monday to Friday. The top 40 players from the open qualifiers go to the closed qualifier hosted every Saturday. Post these qualifiers, the top 20 participants from the closed qualifiers will get to enter ‘The Real Race’ which will take place on Sunday; competing twice on the same track.
Post this, the 10 weekly qualifiers for each region will offer participants the chance to earn points for regional ranking to become the next regional champion. The first edition of this race in 2020 attracted more than 2500 drivers from 109 countries and was a major success. Assetto Corsa Competizione was developed alongside car manufacturers and provides a platform for Lambhorgini’s racing series.
The inaugural competition was won by Nils Naukojs, a German sim racer. This year Lambhorgini esports now offers a new global approach to The Real Race. With this immersive esports competition, the brand also plans to fuel the sim racing community. The in-house design department of Lamborghini’s Centro Stile has created an exclusive race livery that is customizable in 12 versions by competitors.
