Red Bull Racing has unveiled and opened the new Red Bull Racing Erena, a sim racing training facility located at the heart of its Milton Keynes Technology Campus. The facility is designed to help improve the current crop of 12 team drivers and to be used as an academy hub to train young sim racers for the future.

The space is divided into four main areas: the training area, the competition area, the console area, and the driver locker area. The training area features six F1 Esports Pro Series specification Playseats with Fanatic set-up and 240hz AOC screens connected to a 9’x9’ video wall that displays data from the drivers. There is also a Citrix data dashboard for the Team Manager to monitor training and events.

The competition area offers two Playseats with AOC triple screen set-ups and Fanatic direct-drive wheelbases for additional force feedback. One of the rigs will also feature a full Fanatic drifting set up. The console area is a “chillout zone” where the team can relax away from the virtual racetrack. The area features a 65-inch Philips OLED TV, a Playstation 5, and an Xbox Series X, complete with Playseat PUMA Active Gaming chairs.

The public will have opportunities on a select number of days each year to hire the space. Fans will also be able to visit the space during tours of the Red Bull Racing factory.
