Earlier this month, the Italian luxury automobile brand, Lamborghini, announced its first esports team on their Social Media platforms. 

Lamborghini decided to join the esports community and to create its own official team in esports.  The Esports team’s squad has a lot of experience already in The Real Race. Jordan Sherratt, Gianfranco Giglioli, and Girgio Simonini are the Sim Drivers who will start competing for Lamborghini in SRO.

Real Race was created by Lamborghini gained a lot of attention and had a massive success in 2020. Not only that, but the competition will return in 2022, but the automobile brand did not yet announce any dates.

Lamborghini’s new squad will compete in the GT World Challenge Esports Sprint Series Europe and the Intercontinental GT Challenge Esports endurance competition. Their first competition will be at “Assetto Corsa Competizione,” an Italian-developed car racing simulator.

Sherratt has amazing skills, and he proved himself at 2020s competitions. He gained a lot of  his success in the latest edition of The Real Race, by winning fifteen out of seventeen races and taking nine out of ten pole positions. Moreover, Sherratt dominated Lamborghini Esports championship for the EMEA region in 2020.

“Being chosen by Lamborghini to be the Official Sim driver still feels like a dream. All the hard work and sacrifice I have put in behind the scenes have been recognised, and I finally get to live my dream! I want to thank Lamborghini for putting their trust in me to represent their prestigious Brand.”

Sherratt

Gianfranco Giglioli, is a 24-year-old driver who already knows his way around in the sim racing world. He was one of the first virtual drivers to take part in the Formula 1 Esports Series. He finished eighth in the inaugural season of the F1 Esports Series and fifth in the first edition of The Real Race. Giglioli won the Porsche Esports Carrera Cup Italia in 2022.

Giorgio Simonini won the first place in the Sim Grid World Cup 2020 and fourth place in the SRO Esports 2020 championship. He will join his teammates for the 2022 Intercontinental GT Challenge Esports Endurance Championship. Sherrat and Giglioli will compete together in the GT World Challenge Esports Sprint Series Europe before the GT Championship. 

 “Car simulators are an important platform in today’s motorsports. Video games were born to allow those who did not have the opportunity to actually race to impersonate professional drivers. Now, after several decades of development in the industry, simulators are getting closer and closer to their real-life counterpart, and now they have nothing to envy about professional motorsport.”
