Audi racing driver Mike Rockenfeller has started a virtual racing series under the motto #RaceHome. The virtual racing series will be held on the PlatStation 4 using the fully-electric Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo. Once a week, fans and SimRacing professionals can compete against six Audi DTM drivers: Loïc Duval, Jamie Green, Nico Müller, Robin Frijns, René Rast and Mike Rockenfeller.
To be able to compete against the Audi DTM drivers on #RaceHome, PlayStation Network members have to develop a design for the Audi e-Tron Vision Gran Turismo in conjunction with #AudiTogether and #WeStayHome. The most creative and best designs will be picked by the Audi’s DTM drivers.
“Since there are no real races happening at the moment, because of the corona crisis, SimRacing is experiencing an incredible boom. We are deliberately going our own way: #RaceHome is focusing on sports cars with electric drive and is therefore in line with Audi’s focus topic in the change of mobility. We have decided on a console game because we can reach a particularly large community in this way. There are many freelancers in motorsport who have lost their income from one day to the next and are fearing for their own existence. That’s why it will be possible to bid for a spot on the grid every week.Said Mike Rockenfeller 2013 DTM champion.
