AWS DeepRacer is the fastest way to get rolling with machine learning, giving developers the chance to learn ML hands-on with a 1/18th scale autonomous car, 3D virtual racing simulator, and the world’s largest global autonomous car racing league. With the 2021 AWS DeepRacer League Virtual Circuit now underway, developers have five times more opportunities to win physical prizes, such as exclusive AWS DeepRacer merchandise, AWS DeepRacer Evo devices, and even an expenses paid trip to AWS re:Invent 2021 to compete in the AWS DeepRacer Championship Cup.

To make ML more fun and accessible to every developer, the AWS DeepRacer League is taking prizing a step further and introducing new digital car customizations for every participant in the league. For each month that you participate, you’ll earn a reward exclusive to that race and division. While new digital rewards allow you to customize your car on the track, the new *Your racer profile* page allows you to customize your personal appearance across the AWS DeepRacer console. With the new avatar tool, you can select from a variety of options to replicate your real-life style or try out a completely new appearance to showcase your personality. You can also designate your country, which adds a flag to your avatar and in-console live races, giving you the opportunity to represent your region and see where other competitors are racing from all over the globe. The April 2021 races are just getting underway in the Virtual Circuit. Head over to the AWS DeepRacer League today to get rolling, or sign in to the AWS DeepRacer console to start customizing your avatar and collecting digital rewards!
