The racing event for the whole family – the fusion of virtual and real racing

Sim racing, Gaming, RC & Slot Cars, Model Making, Blancpain GT Series


The ADAC SimRacing Expo turns five – with a bigger event than ever before. The racing event highlights all facets of racing for the whole family.

You always wanted to know how it feels to be on a race behind the wheel of a race car? Test your skill in a professional simulator used by real drivers. If you want to set up your own, more affordable simulator at home, get inspired at the ADAC SimRacing Expo, too – or try out RC Car races or an exciting slot car race. And because an Expo without real races is only half the fun, the Blancpain GT Series is taking place at the same time at Nürburgring – roaring engines and the smell of burning rubber included.
