Ten of the original 600 participants competed in the Jochen Schweizer SimRacing Casting Challenge 3. Only six of them made it to the fourth and final challenge, with the winners then joining the Jochen Schweizer SimRacing Team - powered by BMW.
In Challenge 3, the Esport drivers had to prove their skills on the real racetrack. Former DTM driver Martin Tomczyk emphasized that SimRacing and real racing are no longer far apart. Under the supervision of BMW's head of internal driving training, Rolf Scheibner, the participants had to face various challenges on the BMW test track in Maisach.
What was Challenge 3 All About?
The SimRacers had to prove their driving talent in the BMW M235i and BMW M3 Competition. First, the racers had to keep the car on the track on a wet surface, then they had to drive around a slalom course as quickly as possible. In the next and final exercise, the participants were tested for their cornering speed. Here, the speed was determined shortly after exiting the curve. The six candidates who were the fastest online and in the real car moved on to the final.
