Welcome to Simracing.gp
It’s taken a while to get here but we are finally in a position to move Simracing.gp (SGP) to open beta allowing anyone to come and try the platform and help us test features. SGP is a collection of tools which makes creating and finding online races easier. We have been testing and tweaking the platform over the last few months and we now invite you to come and try the platform for yourself.
Simracing.gp services three different types of user:
If you are looking to race then you have a number of options available to you on Simracing.gp. You can join in the daily races hosted by SGP, these are just for fun, but try your best as these results will be collected and used to create some awesome single player online experiences in the future.
Secondly you can join communities which host their racing on the platform. Simply browse the communities and find something which suits you and your tastes. You will find communities all offering different kinds of racing including daily races, rookies only or elite level, there is something for everyone.
Finally keep an eye out for brand sponsored events and pro esports tournaments, these typically have prizes for both the fastest and most committed drivers. We open the platform with Fanatec and Next Level Racing both holding championships open to all drivers - More detail below.
The Community Admin:
Simracing.gp puts event organisation in the hands of those with a vision. No longer are you required to know how to configure a server and be sapped of energy compiling entry lists and parsing results files, if you have an idea for a sim racing community you have everything you need here to get up and running. We currently offer three titles on the platform, AC, ACC and RaceRoom which should be enough to get you racing and having some serious competition.
If you want to organise MX5 races in AC on Mondays, RaceRoom 90s DTM on Wednesdays and ACC GT3s on Saturdays you can, and there is more to come too. A significant update to the platform will enable teams driving in ACC so get ready to host those driver swap endurance races, moreover Automobilista 2 will be coming to the platform soon.
Best of all, we have integrated discord to the platform, meaning you can assign discord roles to events or championships so you don’t have to ping your entire community when you just want to talk to the 40 odd people taking part.
Race when you want - Don't let anyone dictate when you can race. With access to literally thousands of servers on SGP, you decide when you want to race. No need to book a slot in a calendar, no waiting for another race to finish before you can get on. You race on your clock.
Brands / Esports:
We have made creating esports tournaments a doddle. Not only have we made the setup of traditional championships easier than ever before, but we have also built some tools completely unique to the industry which makes your event infinitely more attractive to drivers than a traditional hot lap qualifier. And the best bit, we can do all this at the fraction of the cost of which an esports agency would charge. If you would like to explore esports opportunities with SGP please get in touch.
Welcoming Jimmy Broadbent
It gives us great pleasure to introduce Jimmy Broadbent as a partner at Simracing.gp. After demoing the platform to Jimmy at the back end of 2020 he saw the potential in the platform instantly. Jimmy will be hosting races and championships for his subscribers and followers on the platform as well as providing essential feedback to the development team on how SGP can be improved.
Open Beta Launch Activity:
As well as the many communities on the platform there are also some championships taking place on the platform soon after launch. These are open to all drivers and there are some great prizes up for grabs.
Next Level Racing GT3 Cup - A five week championship on ACC, qualifiers starting on Monday 19th April. Next Level Racing are giving away no less than four cockpits with the star prize being their flagship GT Ultimate cockpit worth £499
Fanatec Simracing.GP Series - A three week series of daily races using ACC, AC and RaceRoom. Prove you are the master of multiple sims to take the overall crown and win a Fanatec DD2 Podium F1 set. But that’s not all, every time you complete 100% race distance in any of the daily races you earn an entry to a prize draw to win a CSL Elite Wheel base and a McLaren GT3 wheel.
Simracing.gp is a community centric platform and our pricing reflects that. For drivers you can race for free in the SGP daily races and with as many communities as you like, but when you upgrade you can choose to donate part of your subscription to support the communities you race with. This is a great way to support both the development of the platform and the communities which spend hours of their own time running their organisations.
This means that the communities which host events can claw back their membership costs through donations and acquire more server time if required. Eventually communities will be able to use any surplus credit to use on a platform store or even cash out the additional funds.
For organisers we have competitive pricing for use of all the tools in one place, servers, entry list management, championship manager etc. With SGP you aren't just renting a server, it's all the tools that goes with it.
