The yearly trade show is set to be held at the NürnbergMesse in Nuremberg, Germany, with a series of talks and esports races scheduled to take place on the venue’s show stage throughout the event.
ADAC is the largest motoring club in Europe, offering roadside assistance to its members and advocating for better road safety. It also represents the interests of motorsport in Germany, promoting and organising events. Its influence extends to the promotion of sim racing, offering its backing to the SimRacing Expo and championships like the ADAC GT Masters Esports Championship.
What to do and see at the ADAC SimRacing Expo 2022
Luckily, there are plenty of sim racing-based activities to do and see at this year’s ADAC SimRacing Expo, including three high-profile esports races, talks from some of the biggest names in the genre and you may even bump into popular content creators such as Jimmy Broadbent and Jardier.
Asetek SimSports has already hinted that they’ll be showcasing its new wheels and wheelbases, Simucube will be offering first tries of its new ActivePedal and Gomez Sim Industries (GSI) will reveal its latest wheel – the Hyper P1. Simucube and GSI may even discuss their recent hardware collaboration…
In terms of esports, Round 4 of the eNASCAR International Series from Daytona will be broadcast live into the SimRacing Expo hall.
The finale of the 2022 ADAC Professional Trophy on Kunos Simulazioni’s Assetto Corsa Competizione will also take place. The competition, run in association with Simracing.GP, sees the likes of Williams Esports, TRITON Racing, YAS HEAT and Unicorns of Love gunning for the championship with an on-site six-hour race around Nürburgring’s Grand Prix layout.
The race will be broadcast live at the event with several esports racers taking part in person. Other races include the RaceRoom Community Trophy Final and the iRacing-based ADAC Digital GT500, with on-site commentary from Paul Glover and Alex Goldschmidt.
RaceRoom will also have visitor and exhibitor races available throughout the event.
The Expo, organised by Cowana GmbH, shares hall space with the RETRO CLASSICS BAVARIA show, so sim racers with some downtime can go and check out some outstandingly presented classic vehicles.
