AWS DeepRacer League at re:Invent 2020
Race at AWS re:Invent online via the DeepRacer console

Developers of all skill levels can join the AWS DeepRacer League to put your machine learning skills to the test from anywhere in the world. The 2020 regular season is officially over, but you can still qualify for the championships now through November 30th, 2020 for your chance to earn one of just five remaining spots via the Wildcard race. Starting in December, tune in to see who takes home the AWS DeepRacer League Championship Cup on DeepRacer TV!

AWS re:Invent registration is free and now open to all. Sign up for exclusive access to three all new AWS DeepRacer educational sessions as well as chances to compete in special races for attendees.

Championship Wildcard race
American Hills Speedway
Race online November 10 - 30, 2020

The American Hills Speedway is a classic circuit set in the Southern US, featuring 2 technical turn sections and 3 high speed straightaways. The long and varying track is a great litmus test for a well rounded time trial model. To top the leaderboard models will need to find optimal steady lines through the turns, accelerating confidently and consistently in the straights to break away from the pack. This track is host to both the AWS DeepRacer League Championship Cup Warmup race, and Championship Wildcard race - the last shot for 5 skilled racers to join the rest of the pack in the championships.

With AWS Free Tier we've got you covered for up to 10 hours of training, so you can enter the AWS DeepRacer League at no cost to you.

Finalists race online November 10 - 30, 2020

During the Championship warmup race, qualified finalists will receive exclusive access to compete directly in the AWS DeepRacer Console. The final position of each racer during the warmup race will determine the start order of the round 1: group knockout races, with the fastest finishers on the leaderboard racing last in their group, and the slowest finishers racing first in the group rounds. They'll take on the American Hills Speedway in Time Trial format, vying for a top spot to improve their odds in the knockouts. Tune in to AWS DeepRacer TV on December 7th to watch their journey, and compete in the Wildcard race for a chance to join the field in the Group Knockouts!
