FAQ

Past events photos

Here are some frequently asked questions

Some impressions from last year:

  •                What are the costs?

    The entry to SimRacing Expo is free. You can also test all simulators, games and consoles for free. Participating at the ADAC SimRacing Trophy contest is also free of charge.

     

    If you want to enjoy the real racing action and have a look into the Paddock and garages of the teams you need to buy a ticket. But this is very reasonably priced.

  •                What is the event about?

    The event is about bringing together real racing and virtual racing. At the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit the final round of the Blancpain Endurance Series takes place, while the ring boulevard host the SimRacing Expo with all its virtual counterparts.

     

    The SimRacing Expo is all about racing games.

  •                What is the ADAC SimRacing Trophy?

    The ADAC SimRacing Trophy is awarded to the fastest virtual gamer. In 2015, there will be two categories: the Manufacturer's Cup and the Driver's Cup..

     

    Each category will have its own contest area (1+2) next to the center stage. In the Manufacturer’s Cup there will be the same software, but different motion simulators. In the Driver's Cup all simulators will be the same.

  •                Where can I watch the contest?

    Similar to the real racing action, the final rounds of the virtual racing competition are broadcast live via web. There will be also English commentators. The stream will be available here.

  •                Safety first

    Regardless if reality or virtual, it is the objective of the ADAC to maintain high safety standards and spread this mind-set. Therefore, similar to the real racing, there will be a Stewards panel for the SimRacing Trophy to ensure a fair contest with respect to the rules and safety.
