Due to the ongoing Corona pandemic, which started in late 2019, mass events in Europe are not allowed to be organized. Also, Germany has implemented a set of rules and restrictions to ensure people’s health and safety. Therefore, the organizers of the ADAC SimRacing Expo had to cancel last year’s edition of the popular Sim Racing trade show which was originally scheduled to be held at the 8,800 sqm Ring Boulevard Building at the German Nürburgring circuit from Friday 4 to Sunday 6 September 2020.
Somewhat later, the ADAC SimRacing Expo team announced that they wanted to organize a replacement event in digital form running a completely virtual concept Expo from December 11th to December 20th. Sadly enough, due to circumstances, the organizers also had to cancel the digital version of the 2020 event.
Now the organizers have announced that the ADAC SimRacing Expo is coming back in 2021 as an offline event. From September 17 to 19 the SimRacing Expo will again show you the latest innovations, the best races, and the most interesting manufacturers in the Sim Racing industry.
