Back in 2020, the well-known RaceDepartment sim racing community platform and US technology investor Nascent introduced the Simracing.GP online sim racing platform.
Simracing.GP is a user-friendly system for sim racing enthusiasts to find races, organize events, and compete against each other online. It is a multi-sim platform, which means that you can race on a variety of different simulators, including Assetto Corsa Competizione, Assetto Corsa, RaceRoom, and Automobilista 2.
After 3 years of development, the Simracing.GP platform has now ended its beta mode. The site has grown to host over 600 racing communities around the world and provides racing opportunities for almost 75,000 drivers. Alongside the move out of beta mode, SGP has also rolled out a number of new features for communities in an ongoing push to provide the ultimate toolbox for communities to deliver incredible racing in the easiest way possible.
The new features include the introduction of around-the-clock daily racing options and an automatic splitting function that allows communities to have multi-split entry lists automatically calculated by using SGP Pure Performance Rank.
Commenting on the changes, Managing Director Tomas Vaiciunas said: This is an incredibly exciting moment for all of us at SGP. The goal of Simracing.GP was removing barriers to run racing for everyone who had ideas on how to organise races from a small group of friends to worldwide racing communities, and these latest updates support that journey.
Leaving beta is a milestone moment for us, but doesn’t signify the end of development. We are committed to developing even more tools that empower our communities to grow and take on the biggest in the industry.
At the same time as the beta exit, SGP are also introducing options for drivers to contribute to the running of the communities that they race with and to the further development of the SGP platform by signing up to ‘Driver Plans’. The plans are optional and there will always be a free ‘Eco’ mode, but the option to upgrade to ‘Drive’ or ‘Sport’ unlocks additional features and increases contributions to communities of the driver’s choice through ‘Fuel’ which can then be added to the tank of their selected community.
Simracing.GP will be making more announcements on developments due throughout the year.
