Become a part of an unforgettable event

The Nürburgring eSports – Team Endurance Championship consists of an online leaderboard and a live event that takes place on Friday, May 11th, in the ring°arena at the Nürburgring.

 

24 teams will compete, with 3 drivers each – representing their team and nation on a big stage, in front of a live audience and on a live stream in a 4 hour race. Be the star of the show in the first Nürburgring eSports event, drive an unforgettable endurance race with driver swaps in a very special location and secure the Nürburgring eSports trophy for your team.

The Location – Think BIG

This in not an online race! The ring°arena at the Nürburgring will be the host for the inaugural Nürburgring eSports race. And we are not messing around. A big stage will be ready and waiting for you. You can come to the arena, and you can be the star of the show when you are qualified with your team!

 

Just want to watch? No problem, entry is free for specators. Take a seat and enjoy simracing on the highest level, brought to you by a professional commentary and media team. In addition, the races will be streamed live online – with German and English commentary.

The qualifier – #roadtogreenhell

The online leaderboard is the first step of the qualification process. You need to set the best laptime you can, directly on the leaderboard with one of four german GT3 cars. The better your laptime is, the more points you achieve. You only need to own the track and one livery to participate. Join the online qualifier here!

As the second step, you have to find two teammates, with which you compete in the event. You can find teammates here in the dedicated section in the forum. Also, the RaceRoom team will also assist you to find travelling partners from your country.

Once you have found two teammates, you can register your team. You can use our registration form here! There are no costs for registering your team, or for taking part in the event.

Out of all teams that enter, the 24 teams with the highest average leaderboard points scores of the drivers will qualify for the event. Team entries close at April 22nd, 23:59 GMT. The entry list will be published on April 23rd here, as well as in the forum.

Calendar

You can be sure that an unforgettable event is awaiting you, as on the real Nordschleife, the 24h race is happening! Thousands of fans and hundreds of awesome cars are out there, creating a very special atmosphere. Access to ring°boulevard and the ring°arena is free, but we can only recommend also getting a ticket for the 24h race.

And if you can’t get enough of RaceRoom, make sure to also participate in the Esports WTCR Launch Event, which is happening from Thursday to Saturday, also in the ring°arena, where you can compete for your share of a 25.000€ prizepool in 4 divisions.
