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 $598 to take your models from simulation to reality (sim2real) at home!
Land on the podium | win a trip to compete at re:Invent
The top 3 racers in the Pro Finale each month will qualify for the AWS DeepRacer League Championship Cup. Earn an expenses paid trip to Las Vegas to attend AWS re:Invent 2021 where you will compete for the title and the grand prize. Start racing today and it could be you on top of the podium this year!
Tune in for the LIVE Pro Finale on August 12
The top 16 racers in Pro division advance to the Pro Finale each month, where they submit their models to race LIVE. Tune in on Thursday August 12 at 5:30pm PST on the AWS Twitch channel »
Each developer will have two attempts to achieve the fastest single lap time. When the dust has settled, the top 10 developers on the Finale leaderboard receive AWS DeepRacer Evo devices, while the Top 3 have the chance to earn an expenses paid trip to compete in the AWS DeepRacer League Championships at AWS re:Invent.
With new AWS DeepRacer LIVE races anyone can set up a race in minutes and stream it live. Invite your friends and colleagues to submit their models to compete in real time with easy to use hosting tools for streaming your race in console and on Twitch.
Now Open: July Qualifier races
At 40.79m, the Baja Turnpike is a short angular track that mixes full throttle straightaways with hard deccelerating turns. Signature features include a long high speed sprint over the finishline endcapped by a harsh hairpin and tight 90 degree turn. While you won't find any sand traps on this course there are no shortage of places to get stuck.
Format: time-trial | Laps: 3 continuous | Penalties: 5 seconds
Participants in the Open Division compete in time trial format, climbing the leaderboard by completing 3 laps around the track the fastest while avoiding time penalties for going offtrack.

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) modelsto 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.
