Audi factory driver Mike Rockenfeller has initiated a virtual racing series under the motto #RaceHome, which is held on the PlayStation 4 with the fully electric Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo. The proceeds are used for a good cause. Once a week, fans of the Audi brand and SimRacing professionals will be competing against the six Audi DTM drivers: Loïc Duval, Jamie Green, Nico Müller, Robin Frijns, René Rast, and Mike Rockenfeller.
“Since there are no real races happening at the moment, because of the corona crisis, SimRacing is experiencing an incredible boom,” says the 2013 DTM champion. “We are deliberately going our own way: #RaceHome is focusing on sports cars with electric drive and is therefore in line with Audi’s focus topic in the change of mobility. We have decided on a console game because we can reach a particularly large community in this way.”Virtual Racing For A Good Cause
PlayStation Network members have the opportunity to compete against the Audi DTM stars on #RaceHome. They can win a spot on the grid each week by developing and publishing a design for the Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo in conjunction with #AudiTogether and #WeStayHome. The most creative design will win. The jury consists of the six Audi DTM drivers.Virtual Racing For A Good Cause
#RaceHome wants to generate as many donations as possible to be used for charity projects within the motorsport family. “There are many freelancers in motorsport who have lost their income from one day to the next and are fearing for their own existence,” says Rockenfeller. That’s why it will be possible to bid for a spot on the grid every week.
All of the races of the #RaceHome charity racing series can be seen on the free live streaming channel at www.twitch.tv/visionrcco. The first race took place Tuesday, 21 April.Virtual Racing For A Good Cause
Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.
Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.
It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.
A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
