Formula E: Accelerate

Unlock your esports racing potential

It's time for a new challenge. All-electric street racing returns to the virtual world with a fresh new esports series - Formula E: Accelerate.

six races, the 24 fastest sim racers, one formula e drive

Formula E: Accelerate will see 24 of the fastest sim racers going head-to-head in a highly-charged six-race battle for the once-in-a-lifetime drive of a Gen2 car and a share of a minimum €100,000 prize pool.

Formula E returns to the virtual world

Like in the Race at Home Challenge, Formula E will once again dive into the virtual world in rFactor2. This time, the digital racers will face new challenging features by having to master energy management and ATTACK MODE for the first time, bringing the online competitors even closer to trials faced by their real-world Formula E counterparts.

Formula E: Accelerate is a six-race competition that kicks off at the end of January and concludes in March at the Grand Final with double points on offer for the sim racing stars. The virtual races will take place at inch-perfect digital recreations of tracks from real world locations like Berlin's Tempelhof Airport, Hong Kong Harbourfront and Red Hook City in New York City, among others.
