The 10th and final round of the Lamborghini The Real Race season took place last weekend and with it, three drivers from three regions have won the ultimate prize.
After drivers from all regions raced on Assetto Corsa Competizione at the likes of Monza, Laguna Seca, Suzuka, Kyalami, Zandvoort, Nürburgring GP, Catalunya, Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps, the grand finale would take place on the Misano circuit.
If you fancy watching all nine hours of action with commentary from our very own René Buttler, here is the YouTube link:
At the end of it all, the Asia-Pacific regional champion was Andrew O’Hara of Australia who beat fellow Aussies Terry Rayton and Egor Ogorodnikov. The Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA) regional championship went the way of South Africa's Jordan Sherratt ahead of Tommy Razeyre of France and Kévin Siclari of Switzerland. Finally, the North America-Latin America championship was won by Fidel Moreira of Brazil, whilst USA's William Hendrickson was second and another Brazilian by the name of Gabriel Felipe was third.
As a result of winning their respective regional championships, O'Hara, Sheratt and Moreria will be given an all expenses paid VIP trip to Lamborghini's HQ in Sant’Agata Bolognese to take part in a shootout. They'll be assessed on the simulator and in an actual Lamborghini race car, and whoever the Lamborghini esports representatives are most impressed with, will offered a full-time Lamborghini esports contract.
This will be a big move by Lamborghini as whoever gets picked up by them will become their first ever esports driver, showing yet another manufacturer is taking the virtual racing world about as seriously as their real world ventures. Expect the winner to compete for Lamborghini in the SRO Esports Series, most likely the European series.
Wait, there's more!
One of the partners of the Lamborghini The Real Race was Secretlab, a gaming chair manufacturer who showed off their new Titan Evo 2022 during the broadcast. The one on display in the broadcast had Lamborghini's logo on the backrest. Plus at the Lamborghini World Finals in the last week of October, attendees got to drive the new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2 in Assetto Corsa Competizione, in anticipation of the car releasing across all platforms soon.
