AWS DeepRacer League
Welcome to the world’s first global autonomous racing league, driven by machine learning. It’s time to race for prizes and glory, and a chance to advance to the AWS DeepRacer Championship. Developers of all skill levels can get on the track to compete in races online and in person worldwide while improving your machine learning skills!
The 2022 season is heating up
The 2022 season is nearly half over, but there is still plenty of time to start tuning your models and revving your engines. Start racing now for your chance at this month's prizes, and climb the leaderboard for a chance to advance to the Championship Cup.
New season, new divisions, and more chances to win
The 2022 AWS DeepRacer League features new divisions and more opportunities to win than ever before! The 4th season of the AWS DeepRacer Virtual Circuit launched on March 1, 2022 and continues through October. Train and race models inside the AWS DeepRacer console from anywhere in the world for your chance to win prizes.
The inaugural AWS DeepRacer Student League also launched on March 1; students can now sign in to deepracerstudent.com to learn machine learning, train models, and compete against other students from around the globe without the need to create an AWS account.
Finally, the AWS DeepRacer League Summit Circuit returns to AWS Summit events around the globe in 2022. Train your model to conquer the new AWS Summit Speedway, and compete in-person with autonomous RC cars on the longest physical track in AWS DeepRacer history. Find an event near you »
Compete in the Virtual Circuit
Format: time trial | Laps: 3 continuous | Penalties: 3 seconds
The BreadCentric Loop is named after AWS DeepRacer Community Hero, Tomasz Ptak AKA "BreadCentric". This track challenges racers with lightning fast drag strips and variable sweeping turns. While the 44.683m BreadCentric Loop seems simple, expect to see no shortage of off tracks on its unforgiving turns. Think you've got the secret ingredient to rise to the challenge, or will you fall flat once the heat is turned up?
Format: Head-to-bot | Laps: 3 continuous | Penalties: 3 seconds
The BreadCentric Speedway builds upon the Loop by adding a technical inside to outside hairpin section separating the various dragstrips. The Breadcentric Speedway will test the skills of even the most experienced developer, as they compete in head-to-bot races throughout qualification. Things will get really interesting in the Pro Finale, when the competitors will have to contend with a secret ingredient to take the cake. Here's a hint; it's boxes.
Featured reward: Breadcentric Compact
All participants in May Open and Pro Division races will receive the exclusive Breadcentric Compact in their garage at the end of the month. The Breadccentric Compact was designed with input from AWS community Hero Tomasz Ptak, a sensible European compact car, delivering fresh bread to fellow competitors.
Tune in for the Monthly Pro Finale
Format: Object Avoidance | Laps: single fastest of 2 attempts | Duration: 3 minutes | Penalties: 3 seconds
Each month, the top 16 Pros will compete in the monthly Pro Finale where they will race LIVE on the AWS Twitch channel for a chance to win AWS DeepRacer devices and qualify for the Championships in Las Vegas at AWS re:Invent 2022.

How to win prizes in the AWS DeepRacer League
Start in the Open Division | win virtual cars
For each month you compete, earn a new digital reward such as custom cars, paintjobs, and modifications by competing in the AWS DeepRacer Virtual Circuit. Racers can access earned rewards in your racer profile inside the AWS DeepRacer console. Build up your inventory to tune each model's custom look for racing in the League.
Advance to the Pro Division | win gear
Land in the top 10% at the end of any Open Division race and you'll advance to the Pro Division the following month, earning an AWS DeepRacer Pro welcome kit with exclusive DeepRacer merchandise shipped to your door. From sweatshirts to socks, stickers, and more - the welcome kit has everything you need to look the part as a certified pro. Pros also win an exclusive digital reward each month.
Take on the League's best | win a DeepRacer
Once you advance to the Pro Division, you'll compete with the best in the league for a chance to compete in the Pro Finale. The top 16 racers face off live each month on AWS Twitch, to compete for the biggest prizes in the league. The top 10 finishers in the Finale will each win an AWS DeepRacer Evo device valued at $399 to take your models from simulation to reality (sim2real) at home!
Land on the podium | win a trip to compete at re:Invent

The FASTEST way to learn Machine Learning, literally.
AWS DeepRacer League brings developers from all over the world together through Machine Learning (ML) competition. With hands-on training, participants learn to build reinforcement learning (RL) models to race on an AWS DeepRacer device and in the 3D virtual racing simulator. Whether you're a seasoned pro at the top of the global leaderboard or developing a model for the first time, AWS DeepRacer is the fastest way to get rolling with ML. Explore the educational resources below to kickstart your ML journey, then get hands on in console to take to the track.
More hands-on learning
Explore the portfolio of educational devices designed for developers of all skill levels to learn ML in fun, practical ways. Get started with reinforcement learning with AWS DeepRacer, learn how to build deep learning-based computer vision apps with AWS DeepLens, and express your creativity through generative AI with AWS DeepComposer.
