Sim racing is an important pillar in the programme at HRT. Action on the digital racetrack has developed from its origins in video games to a stand-alone motorsport discipline – one that is winning more and more fans, fascinates vehicle manufacturers, and puts drivers’ skills to the test. As such, we are approaching this challenge with the appropriate level of professionalism and passion.


Our HRT eSports team combines professional drivers from both motorsport worlds. Not only do they steer our virtual cars, but also work hand in hand to develop optimal set-ups and effective training methods. They advance the transfer of technology and create synergies between digital and real racing – always with the goal of getting the very best out of man and machine.
