GetSpeed and Asetek SimSports™: Sim Racing and Motorsports Merge at the Nürburgring
We got GREAT news for the sim racers who plan on visiting the famous Nürburgring in Germany.
We can now officially announce our partnership with GetSpeed, the motorsports performance center at the Ring. You will now find Asetek SimSports™ racing products available to try out in the GetSpeed RaceTaxi shop, located literally next to the race track. As a performance center right at the track, GetSpeed helps club and motorsports customers when it comes to tuning, hosting or coaching for maximum performance.
Through our new collaboration, the GetSpeed fleet vehicles will include Asetek SimSports™ branding and the GetSpeed RaceTaxi, a racecar driven by a professional racecar driver, giving customers hot laps around the Nürburgring! This service is available to race fans almost 170 days a year. Are you excited by the thought of going through the twists and turns of arguably the most demanding racetrack in the world? If tempted, check out more here.
I am excited to have this cooperation with Adam and GetSpeed. The Ring is the most iconic race track in the world”, says André Sloth Eriksen, founder and CEO of Asetek.
“Having a physical presence right at the track, where customers try and buy our sim racing products, is big as we always design and test to provide a real racecar feel. Starting with the 24-hr Nürburgring Race on the 28th of May, attendees and racers can try out Asetek SimSports™ Invicta™ pedals in a sim rig in the GetSpeed RaceTaxi shop.”
The GetSpeed Performance Center at the Nürburgring has brought twenty-plus years of motorsports experiences and countless victories on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife track.
“André and I share a passion for racing and a focus on innovation”, says Adam Osieka, CEO of GetSpeed, and 20-time (!) class winner at the VLN and 24-hr race. “I am thrilled to have this collaboration and to bring Asetek SimSports™ sim racing gear to our club and motorsports customers.”
In addition, to the on-track branding and collaboration, Asetek SimSports and GetSpeed will also team up to enter the DNLS SimRacing 2022/2023 series with a digital Mercedes-AMG GT3.
