Why Sim Racing with Assetto Corsa Competizione?

CrowdStrike is the Official Internet & Cloud Security Provider of SRO's global race series. When the race season was put on pause, SRO started the GT Rivals e-sports league with real racing drivers, including CrowdStrike's own. Called GT Rivals, the simulated racing league allowed for teams and drivers to continue to work together with a competitive spirit in the off-time ... and helped us grow closer together when we had to be far apart. Now, we have the opportunity to extend this program to CrowdStrike and AWS friends and family via the Virtual Racing League. Join the fun!

How to Enter the Pro or Am Races

How to Participate

Pro and Am Race Qualification

Want to race wheel-to-wheel with other competitors? Join the CrowdStrike Cup League and battle in today’s top GT3 machinery on world class circuits.

You’ll go head-to-head for Overall bragging rights and class wins based on your experience level. League racing is for PC only competitors. Before registering, please ensure your hardware meets minimum system requirements found here.

RACE QUALIFICATION
Two races of 20 players each will be broadcast on the second Thursday of each month. Races will be automatically divided into “PRO” (fastest) and “AM/Amateur” (just for fun) racers.
By the Tuesday before race day, entrants must  run at least 5 valid, timed laps on our private server. Note that this does NOT include outlaps, inlaps, or laps with track cuts.
The server conditions and time of day are fixed to ensure a level playing field for all drivers.
Note that there’s a full hour on the session time, so simply running a single full session at some point should give us the data we need.

How to sign up to race: All racers must register their interest and be accepted to join the League before racing. You will be notified via email if you are accepted to join and will gain access to our server. CrowdStrike and AWS friends & family are invited to participate by racing or just watching on this page!
