Lamborghini has announced the details of this year’s Assetto Corsa Competizione-based sim racing competition, and the prize for the winner is a spot on the brand’s newly-created Esports team.

Yep, this is your chance to actually make it as a pro gamer. All those hours of practice in the basement might just be about to pay off…

Lamborghini has been running ‘The Real Race’ for two years now, but this third iteration will adopt a new format with qualifiers taking place by region (Europe/Middle East/Africa, North America/Latin America and Asia-Pacific) before a six-day ‘Group Stage’ slog with two races per day. 

There will then be a ‘Last Chance’ race to give one more driver the chance to make it into the grand final – which will see the top 16 gamers compete across three races for the chance to win themselves a job. 

All races will be on Assetto Corsa Competizione and Lamborghini is making the game free to play on Steam during the first weekend of the competition in May. The final will take place in October. 

Oh, and all racers will be in virtual versions of the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO2. Excited, gamers of the world?
