Virtual thrill: Sim Race weekend at the IAA

The IAA 2019 will be the centre of European Sim Racing next weekend. Top drivers of the virtual racing series will compete against each other - and you can follow the action live and also drive in a simulator.

Cruising across the road at 300 kph. Feel the centrifugal forces in the bend and feel how the steering wheel vibrates! Many of us would do anything to experience this racing feeling. With Sim Racing, i.e. racing simulations, you get pretty close to reality. At the weekend, virtual racing is the focus of the IAA at the exhibition booths AvD and Porsche.

On the weekend, virtual racing will be the focus of the Porsche stand. On Saturday, the top drivers of the virtual World Championship will compete in a special show race of the Porsche Esports Supercup - and the fans will also have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a virtual Porsche.

On Sunday, everything will revolve around Formula E. Among other things, fans will have the opportunity to drive in a simulator and be there when professional Sim-Racers compete against Porsche's Formula E drivers André Lotterer and Neel Jani.
