As promised a few weeks back, Red Bull has finally revealed its newest creation in the form of a sim racing colosseum at the Red Bull Technology Campus in Milton Keynes, England. In a futuristic setting, Red Bull will provide the drivers of the F1 Esports Pro Series a space to hone their craft and gain in-depth knowledge to improve their driving.

The new arena will be divided into eight parts that are: four main areas, the training area, competition area, console area, and the driver locker area.

As per Red Bull, numerous partners have provided high-quality equipment to make the drivers immerse as much as possible into the world of sim racing. Cutting-edge technology will be used to monitor times and data from drivers.

At the start of December, Red Bull announced a naming contest. That was the first teaser that hinted at the sim racing arena. As of today, more than 4,000 entries have been submitted.

This esports space could very well be the answer to the perhaps persisting covid-19 situation. For players who have to compete locally, it is certainly a plus to have a multitude of tools at their disposal. Red Bull also mentioned the possibility of renting out the space a few times a year and will occasionaly offer guided tours around the facilities.
