Audi’s factory DTM drivers have launched another esports initiative, with an unusual twist. Members of the public can gain a spot on the grid each week, not by playing but by painting.
Going under the name “#RaceHome”, the series will involve the six factory DTM drivers — Loic Duval, Robin Frijns, Jamie Green, Nico Muller, Rene Rast, and Mike Rockenfeller — and use Gran Turismo Sport.
Each week there’s a spot available for the best Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo livery, as judged by the six drivers themselves. All you have to do is create your livery and share it online; it’s not wholly clear what platform Audi will use, but if you publish a design with the #RaceHome, #AudiTogether, and #WeStayHome hashtags across social media, chances are it’ll catch the drivers’ eyes.
The full schedule for the #RaceHome program hasn’t been announced yet, but the first race is next Tuesday, April 21, at 1800 UTC.
