Start training, the 2023 season is around the corner

The 2022 season is officially complete, with the Championship Cup headed back to Taiwan with team NYCU-CGI this year. Participate in pre-season races to start preparing for the 2023 season kicking off in March.

Try AWS DeepRacer Arcade on your mobile device

The all new AWS DeepRacer Arcade for mobile is a free, browser based car racing game that teaches you the fundamentals of machine learning. 

During a quick tutorial, you'll learn how AWS DeepRacer leverages reinforcement learning to navigate autonomously around the track. After, you'll get to use your mobile device to complete a lap around a real DeepRacer virtual track against one of our pre-trained machine learning models. Submit your time to the global leaderboard to see how you stack up; there is no credit card or log-in required to play the arcade.

Congratulations to the 2022 AWS DeepRacer League Champions

Over 150,000 developers participated in AWS DeepRacer in 2022 from over 160 countries around the globe. From March to November the top 50 emerged from AWS Summit and Virtual Circuit racing; earning a trip to AWS re:Invent 2022 in Las Vegas and a chance to compete for the Championship Cup and $20,000 cash purse. 

After 2 days of fierce competition on the all new and ultra challenging AWS DeepRacer 2022 Championship Speedway, 3 classmates from National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University in Taiwan made their way through the field to the finals. Watch as Yoway, I-Lee, and ZhengYi lay it all on the line with a single lap to determine who will be crowned the 2022 league champion.

Compete in the Winter Open Race

The 2022 AWS DeepRacer League features new divisions and more opportunities to win than ever before! The Virtual Circuit launched on March 1, 2022 and continues through October 31. Train and race models inside the AWS DeepRacer console from anywhere in the world for your chance to win prizes.

2022 Championship Speedway

Format: time trial | Laps: 3 continuous | Penalties: 3 seconds

The Championship Speedway 2022 is the official track of the AWS DeepRacer League Championships. The toughest physical track in AWS DeepRacer history (33.22m) will challenge competitors like never before with multiple hairpins and a long dragstrip over the finish line. Compared to the 2022 Summit Speedway, this track is 12cm narrower and 43% longer, adding extra difficulty for competitors.

Open Division
Jennens Family Speedway

Format: time trial | Laps: 3 continuous | Penalties: 3 seconds

The Jennens Family Speedway (49.56 m) is named in honor of the first ever racing family and 2021 re:Invent finalists James "JJ" and his son Timothy "Flatearth" Jennens. This track features two blistering fast drag strips right into unforgiving 90 degree sweeping turns that can spin out even the most skilled developers.

Pro Division
Jennens Super Speedway

Format: Head-to-bot | Laps: 3 continuous | Penalties: 3 seconds

The Jennens Super Speedway (62.07 m) builds on the Jennens family speedway with sharp 90 degree turns inspired by the technical street course features of famous races through the city of Toronto. Pros this month will need to navigate the technical section without off tracks, and apply top speeds on the drag strips to climb the leaderboard.

Featured reward: the re:Invent GT

All participants in the Winter Open race will receive the exclusive re:Invent GT digital reward in their garage at race close. This supercar design is inspired by the real full size cars that a few lucky re:Invent attendees got to drive on a closed track in Las Vegas by participating in the AWS DeepRacer Winner's Circle Driving Experience Sweepstakes.

How to win prizes

DeepRacer Virtual Cars

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. 

DeepRacer Gear

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.

DeepRacer Car

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 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.
