To celeberate this cooperation, ADAC GT Masters competitions are now being featured in RaceRoom Racing Experience.

SWEDEN, LIDKÖPING, May 09, 2014 -  The license to make games based on the ADAC GT Masters was acquired already some time ago but SimBin and RaceRoom have waited to announce it until there was something more to share that could allow fans to take part in the project from day one.

“We allow fans of racing games and of the ADAC GT Masters to join the free competitions via RaceRoom Racing Experience. This is one small taste of what is to come when we release ADAC GT Masters Experience at the end of this year.”  Says Chris Speed, COO at SimBin Studios.

Check out this new ADAC GT Masters video with in-game footage based on 2013 season cars.

The competitions within RaceRoom Racing Experience (R3E) start this weekend, just in time for the ADAC GT Masters race at Zandvoort Race Track located in the Netherlands.

The ADAC GT Masters races at Zandvoort can be followed via the offical ADAC GT Masters site as well as on live TV on the German TV station, kabel eins.

Competitions will be hosted online during each race weekend for the full duration of the 2014 ADAC GT Masters season. At the majority of the events there will be a game park with racing simulators from RaceRoom Entertainment where fans can try out the ADAC GT Masters cars and tracks.

SimBin Studios has announced the full competition calendar on their blog.

It is free to participate in the competitions as the cars and tracks are loaned to the users for the duration of the competition weekend. The cars used in the competition are based on the 2013 season. Everyone who joins also has the chance to win tickets to real ADAC GT Masters events.

To join the competition, simply  download RaceRoom Racing Experience for free and engage in the ADAC GT Masters competitions!

RaceRoom Racing Experience is for PC and available for free download on Valve’s digital game distribution platform,  Steam.
