RiMS Racing: New Gamer Challenge includes time with the US Superbike Team

Clock the fastest time, win the trick

On Saturday, the AMA World’s Fastest Motorcycle Gamer Challenge by Init Esports kicked off, with one simple goal: to give one lucky best-in-class player two jaw-dropping days with an American Superbike team.

The game in question? For this challenge, Init Esports says the challenge will be in RiMS Racing – a hyper-realistic bike simulator that has grabbed headlines for the creator’s attention to performance detail.

The gamer (or rider) who can “achieve the fastest combined lap time on two tracks, two legendary roads and two phases” will be set for the experience of a lifetime, with the report of CycleNews indicating that “Phase 1 of the challenge [January 29 to April 9] will have competitors racing at Laguna Seca (USA), Silverstone (UK), the Million-Dollar Highway (USA) and the Great Victoria Desert Road (AUS).

“Presenting the opportunity to improve track times from Stage 1, Stage 2 [April 10 to May 21] will revisit Laguna Seca, Silverstone and the Million-Dollar Highway, with the fastest combined time across all four tracks determining the winner.

The coolest part of this simulation game, to me, is how far the creators went to make sure each bike felt as close to real-life characteristics as possible. That means bikes like the Aprilia RSV4, BMW’s M1000RR, super-smooth Ducati Panigale V4R, Honda’s CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and Kawasaki’s obligatory Ninja ZX10 RR are all meant to play the same as they feel, with RiMS Racing taking ergonomics, aerodynamics, engine type and more into account.

It’s the first recreational simulator of its kind, and it’s likely to spawn a whole new generation of virtual bike games – ones that, thanks to today’s technology, are likely to have increasingly frightening precision for riders. sinuous figures.

We taste.

“The AMA’s mission includes promoting the motorcycle lifestyle, and that extends to the digital realm,” says AMA Chief Operating Officer James Holter.
