After two seasons of racing across three regions, Lamborghini The Real Race returns for a third season. Once again, it promises hopeful racers a chance of becoming a part of Lamborghini’s official esports outfit. The winner will follow in the footsteps of 2021 EMEA champion Jordan Sherratt, who earned a place in the manufacturer’s first official esports racing team.
In the new season, players will compete in the new Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2. They will also tackle a new competition format with four stages.
From May until June there will be four events in which competitors can compete in open qualification sessions. The top drivers will then go on to compete in a 15 minute sprint race and 45 minute feature race. The top six in points after each individual event will progress to the Group Stage races in their region.
In July and September, the top 24 drivers from each region will compete in two sets of races, from which the top 15 will earn entry into the Finals. Then there will be last chance qualifier in late September, which will allow one more driver per region to join the other qualified competitors in the Finals.

The Finals themselves will consist of three races – one for each region – on the weekend of 15-16 October. The victors from each region will earn the chance to participate in an evaluation at Lamborghini’s headquarters, just like in 2021. One of them will then receive an offer of a full time Lamborghini esports contract.
