Mercedes-AMG GT3 added to list of models in RENNSPORT

The Mercedes-AMG GT3, a standout in the world of Mercedes-AMG Customer Racing, left its mark on international racetracks for some time.  

The Mercedes-AMG GT3 has been added to the list of race cars available in RENNSPORT and is already proving to be a top contender on the track in our internal testing. During the first races of our esports championship, ESL R1, two of the 12 teams in the grid, the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Esports Team and Mercedes-AMG Team Williams Esports, have been fighting for points with this impressive model. 

As one of the most successful GT3 cars in recent years, the Mercedes-AMG GT3 has a lot to offer in virtual racing. But according to early reports from the teams, it’s not only meeting expectations but exceeding them. Its aggressive styling and powerful engine make for a controlled but also exhilarating driving experience. Also, PROJECT PITWALL member René Buttler from OverTake.gg gave it high marks for its handling while testing it in the current development stage of RENNSPORT. Stay tuned on our Social Media channels to check out the video.

The world’s fastest family joined the RENNSPORT family, and we couldn’t be happier. With its reputation for competitiveness, Mercedes-AMG’s powerful race cars are synonymous with top-level performance and excellent drivability. Why not take a showroom tour around the Mercedes-AMG GT3 and see for yourself?

First-ever ESL R1 race weekend was one for the history books

The official kick-off of the ESL R1 Spring Season on February 10 and 11 was a blast.

The ESL R1 Spring Season kicked off with the first official race weekend during IEM Katowice, drawing attention to the world of virtual racing. Hosted by the ESL FACEIT Group, the championship saw teams from our automotive license partners compete against big names in esports such as FaZe Clan and G2 Esports. The complete lineup is available at eslr1.com.

Starting the esports division of RENNSPORT was something that we have worked on very hard since the beginning. As you could see over the past months, this process also came with some challenges, which influenced the fact that we needed to postpone the Closed Beta release. However, we hope we could entertain you with Round 1 and Round 2 of the ESL R1 Spring Season. You can check out the VODs of these two days here if you want to relive the vibe.

The weekend offered everything you need for an entertaining virtual racing event: a big stage, charismatic hosts, talented racers, and first and foremost, an amazing crowd on-site and in the stream. It has always been a dream of ours to create a sustainable professional esports series around the best racers from the biggest teams in virtual racing. Seeing the current top 48 racers finally participating in an official esports race weekend in RENNSPORT and bringing ESL R1 to life was an indescribable feeling. The vibe on-site was amazing, with everyone involved being absolutely motivated to put on a show for you guys, but also to get the first wins for themselves and their team to bring the first points to the leaderboard. You can always see the current and updated leaderboard here, or within the RENNSPORT companion app.

Two racers of the 48-racer grid, MOUZ’ Max Benecke (Winner Round 1 on Spa-Francorchamps) and Porsche Coanda Esports Racing Team racer Josh Rogers (Winner Round 2 on the Hockenheimring), could gain the first wins of ESL R1. By bringing very concentrated efforts throughout the respective days and two outstanding performances from qualifying to the final lap, it was hard for the other competitors to get past the two. Max Benecke’s teammate Moritz Löhner showed an insane battle with Josh but had to admit defeat in the end of the Round 2 final.

With many engaged viewers in the livestream and on the social media channels of RENNSPORT, ESL R1, the teams, and drivers, it is safe to say that we created quite a buzz over the weekend. Those who followed the whole weekend in the livestream could get a good first impression of the current build of RENNSPORT and also received one of the limited ESL R1 liveries through our RENNSPORT Companion App – our first livery drop ever!

We have seen that ESL R1 has the chance to excite and involve many fans and what RENNSPORT as a platform can bring to the professional esports scene. We took a huge first step into the future of virtual racing, and we know we have many more to take.

We have read your comments across all channels and believe that the RENNSPORT community liked what they saw. You also gave valuable feedback on what to improve from a gameplay and broadcast perspective. A long season lies ahead of us, with a lot of learnings to build upon now. The next big event will be our Spring Season Major in May. Until then, we are looking forward to a great online season and hope to see you guys in the stream.

Make sure to check out the official ESL R1 website here to not miss any updates around the season, and you can follow all races on Twitch, YouTube and TikTok.

Legendary racetrack Nürburgring featured in RENNSPORT

One of Germany’s most famous circuits has been added to the RENNSPORT list of racetracks.

The Nürburgring, located in the Eifel mountains of western Germany, has been a mecca for motorsports fans for nearly a century. Originally built in the 1920s as a way to boost tourism in the region, the track has since become one of the most iconic and challenging racing circuits in the world. Records have been broken, milestones have been achieved and heroes have been made: The 5,148 km long GP circuit is looking back on a history in motorsports spanning decades. As one of the racetracks being driven in ESL R1 races it can now add more milestones in the digital sphere of motorsport. We took a lot of heart and energy into implementing the GP course with pinpoint accuracy. 

In-Engine footage of the Nürburgring in the current development stage of RENNSPORT.

The Nürburgring’s history is long and storied, with some of the greatest drivers in history having raced on its twisting and undulating tarmac. The original track, known as the Nordschleife, was built in 1927 and measured over 22 kilometers in length. It quickly gained a reputation as one of the most challenging and dangerous tracks in the world, with narrow roads, blind corners, and unforgiving barriers lining the circuit. 

In the aftermath of Nicky Lauda’s incident in 1976, the German GP returned to the Nürburgring after major improvements to create a safer racing environment, including demolishing the start/finish area of the Nordschleife as well as major parts of the Südschleife. Ever since then, additions such as the Mercedes-Benz Arena and a rebuilt pit area added to the legend and gave the racetrack the face that motorsports enthusiasts can now recognize in RENNSPORT. Today, the Nürburgring is used for a wide range of events, including the German Grand Prix, endurance races like the 24 Hours of Nürburgring, and even music festivals and other cultural events. The close connection between the past, the present, and the future is also visible between race weekends. 

If you want to get more insights into how racetracks are being integrated into our sim, we kindly invite you to stay tuned to our channels…  

New Porsche 911 GT3 R (992) added to RENNSPORT

As Porsche opens another chapter in their motorsport history with the new flagship model in customer racing, RENNSPORT will provide you the digital twin with real adrenalin.

The Porsche 911 992 GT3 R is the newest addition to our digital race car collection. This breathtaking vehicle showcases Porsche’s dedication to producing high-performance sports cars which are tailored for the racetrack. This next-generation GT3 machine is built on the 992-generation infamous Porsche 911 and is purposefully designed for pure racing. Its predecessor has pretty much won everything that can be won throughout the GT3 scene since 2019. From 24-hour races at the Nürburgring or Spa-Francorchamps to countless other successes within the universe of GT3 racing. With that being in the books, we expect many more triumphs to come! 

With the 991 version already available in RENNSPORT, the family keeps on growing and we are more than proud to take the next step in our partnership with Porsche. Having the most powerful and successful race cars in our sim gives you the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of your real-world heroes and bring the euphoria around the vehicle from the racetrack into the virtual world. 

Its devilish look shows motorsport in its perfection. Bold and powerful. Check it out in the RENNSPORT showroom.  

Do you think you can handle it on the racetrack? Then you should sign up for our waitlist and get the chance to receive a key for the latest development version of RENNSPORT. The new Porsche 911 is awaiting you. You can find all information at www.rennsport.gg/beta

Hockenheimring impresses as first-ever racetrack

Summit guests and current Closed Alpha testers love the accurate implementation of the racetrack.

As you know, Germany has a long-lasting tradition in all aspects of the automotive industry and motorsports in general. For many motorsports enthusiasts of all racing series, the Hockenheimring counts as one of the most thrilling racing destinations in Germany. We are super proud that the digital version of it can be experienced as the first racetrack in RENNSPORT since we started our development.  

“The trust we gained from the team of the Hockenheimring was huge and it really paid off in the end. We couldn´t be happier with the cooperation and the results we have reached since partnering up. Having one of the most legendary racetracks in our sim right from the start creates a great foundation for all our next milestones.” explains our CEO Morris. 

We are very happy that we got the opportunity to integrate the Hockenheimring as the first racetrack in RENNSPORT. With that, we have been able to give everyone who tested the sim ever since a highly recognizable racing experience. Looking back to our milestones this year, we can tell that the achievements could not have been possible without them.

The same goes for the first-ever RENNSPORT Summit in May of 2022. More than 100 sim racing professionals and content creators out of the field of virtual motorsport was invited to be the first ones getting to try an early version of RENNSPORT. They had the opportunity to drive two different GT3 cars on the Hockenheimring and get a feel for the physics and handling dynamics firsthand. The feedback we gathered from all our guests was truly amazing and a big boost for our self-confidence going forward with our ambitious project. 

If you have followed our social channels over the last months, you may have seen that our RENNSPORT Roadshow brought the sim to a broader public. It was great to see how many people have been familiar with the Hockenheimring and enjoyed pushing their lap times in our sim rigs.

As sim racing fans and motorsport enthusiasts, it was very important to us to bring the excitement the Hockenheimring offers to fans from all over the world. The entire racetrack has been laser-scanned and implemented into RENNSPORT, using the latest technology to make every bump and curb be accounted for. 

We are very happy that we partnered up with the Hockenheimring as this track will also play an important role within our esports project with the ESL which will kick off in 2023.

World famous Hillclimb racetrack included in RENNSPORT

Festival of Speed in Goodwood can be relived virtually.

When the past meets the future of motorsport. The RENNSPORT Roadshow brought us to the world’s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture, Goodwood Festival of Speed. We had the chance to showcase the latest build of RENNSPORT to the festival guests. To make the fit even better the visitors of our booth have been able to race the original Hillclimb racetrack in the respective build of RENNSPORT that was shown.

Although the Festival of Speed is more of a tribute to motorsport than a serious race, the Goodwood Hillclimb racetrack probably draws the greatest notoriety among motorsport fans of any decade. Since 1993, this event has been held on the grounds of Goodwood House near Chichester in southern England and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.

While the festival takes place only once a year, the feeling of driving up the hill can be recreated regularly in RENNSPORT as soon as our sim will be released. With the integration of the Hillclimb, we have reached another milestone in our young company history, because this is not only an addition to our currently available racetrack, the Hockenheim Ring, but also the starting point for an exciting future partnership with Goodwood Roads & Racing.

Impressed and inspired by the past and present of racing, the feeling of Goodwood also drives us at RENNSPORT to become an important part in the realization of the Festival of Speed. Thus, in the future, we want to add the digital layer to the real race. RENNSPORT can be another pillar of this event steeped in history, paving the way for emulating the heroes of the past and present digitally, but as real as possible.

Our first ever competitive RENNSPORT race

We develop RENNSPORT with Esports in mind and successfully hold our first race at the Summit in Munich.

Competing has been part of our cultural heritage for centuries and motorsport has captivated people since the early days. Now it’s time for the next evolution by proving how fascinating and realistic racing can be in the virtual world. That’s why we started RENNSPORT and our ambition for Esports is to set the stage for a new generation of athletes. Therefore, it was a special highlight of the RENNSPORT Summit for us to hold the first big Esports race, to test our systems and to generate learnings.

The final of the first competition won by Enzo Bonito of Team Redline is now published as a video. In the coming weeks and months we will continue to work hard on the development of the game. One area of development will be state of the art broadcasting tools which will enable fans and partners like the ESL to create an ultra-realistic racing experience for their audiences.

Porsche Mission R premiers in RENNSPORT

The Esports inspired concept car makes its digital debut in our sim.

It was an open secret before but becomes reality now. The all-electric model currently exists haptically only once in the world. With the release in RENNSPORT, the digital version will be available with the start of our Closed Beta.

During our first ever RENNSPORT Summit from May 27 – 29 the guests had the exclusive opportunity to get close to the only real model of the Porsche Mission R that exists so far. Thanks to our partner Porsche who made this happen the pro racers were able to take pictures with the car or even take a closer look at the interior. This unique concept car shall be the fully electric future of customer motorsport of the Zuffenhausen-based brand.

In addition to the real model, the Summit guests were also able to test the first version of the digital fast car in RENNSPORT and drive it on the famous Hillclimb racetrack at Goodwood. The unusual combination of a futuristic race car on an old-world racetrack was also noticeable in the driving experience. Many pro racers had trouble taming the 800kW powertrain without driving into the hay bale barriers. It was fun to play though because both, car and racetrack, are not available in this combination in any other simulation.

If you want to get more information about the Mission R visit the Porsche website.

RENNSPORT x Porsche I Partnership Announcement

German car manufacturer Porsche presented as a multi-year RENNSPORT partner

Racing is just not the same without Porsche! And that’s why we are proud to present the famous German car manufacturer as one of our partners for the future. Their iconic heritage impacts the world of motorsports to this day and now extends into the RENNSPORT family.

Over the past decades, Porsche managed to become one of the world’s leading brands in not only passenger cars but also state-of-the-art race cars across all motorsports categories. Across their engagements, the brand regularly achieves top-level results through its industry-leading knowhow in engineering and development. We at RENNSPORT are more than happy to now have the chance to bring the latest models of the Porsche Motorsport portfolio to our sim. 

To underline their ambitions in the digital motorsport sphere Porsche recently announced another partnership. They join forces with Esports team Coanda to form the Porsche Coanda Esports Racing Team. With this move the company from Zuffenhausen now has one of the best performing sim racing teams in-house. 

When considering the needs of professional sim racers throughout the development process of RENNSPORT, we will also be able to give the community the chance to compete on the same platform their heroes do. After all, that’s what our slogan “ForRacersFromRacers” is all about.

RENNSPORT x BMW I Official License Agreement

Future race cars of German car manufacturer BMW will be available in RENNSPORT

Performance from the heart of Bavaria: we are proud to announce that in the future we will be able to offer the most prominent models from BMW. Welcome to the RENNSPORT family! In true Bavarian style, we say “Servus!”

In 2022, the year of BMWs 50th anniversary, the collaboration with the Munich-based company marks a major milestone the still young history of RENNSPORT. For half a century the signature BMW M brand is part of the professional racing scene. A span during which BMW continued to produce powerful engines and fierce looking cars for both the private sector and the professional racing world. Having the latest racing models of the future included in our sim will take us one step closer to achieving a realistic sim racing experience.

Since 2020, BMW has included sim racing as an independent pillar in its racing program. With BS+ COMPETITION, G2 Esports and Team Redline, three successful sim racing teams are now racing under the blue-and-white icon. With these strong brand ambassadors and by aligning closely with the fast-growing sim-racing community, BMW is making a great contribution to bringing the overarching esports industry to an even more professional level.

This perfectly mirrors our ambition at RENNSPORT of driving attention to a sport that truly deserves it. We believe in building upon the fascination of racing through sustainable growth and modern technology that bridges the gap between professional athletes, amateur racers, sports enthusiasts, collectors and many more. In a nutshell, RENNSPORT aims to be a place for like-minded people with a shared passion.

We introduce RENNSPORT to the public

Whenever we have shown our vision for RENNSPORT to new developers, consultants from the motorsports industry or potential partners, we have subsequently gone jointly into raptures about what will be possible with this platform.

That’s why we couldn’t be prouder to share a first glimpse of our plans with the most important audience today: You, the community! The sim racing enthusiasts and motorsport fans around the world. We are coding this game for you following the slogan in our office: “For racers. From racers”. We want you to have the best possible experience no matter if you are behind the wheel or watching the broadcasts of professional Esports competitions.

Today we can show you the first images. We still have a long way to go and need to keep improving. At this point, however, we would like to demonstrate you that we are already having a convincing basis and we are slowly approaching to a first closed beta with selected sim racing experts.

If you want to be part of the open beta subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date and get all the necessary information in due time.
