Despite a very different world situation than the last time our event took place back in January 2020, Sim Formula Europe is set to return once again – bigger, better, bolder and more engaging with larger prizes than ever before!
Sim Formula is an annual rFactor 2 Esport competition that aims to bring together some of the best virtual racing drivers for a short, sharp and dramatic series of events with great prizes up for grabs. The latest sim racing hardware from Heusinkveld, Coolermaster computer technology and large cash prizes, Sim Formula Europe 2021 has something for everyone – either out on the circuit, from the comfort of your own home, and even budding livery designers looking to bring their creations to life within the rFactor 2 simulation.
Earlier this year we hosted an incredibly entertaining series of races at the immense MECC Arena in Maastricht, with live viewers enjoying a superb performance from Risto Kappet to take home first place in the grand finals, a set of Heusinkveld Sim Pedals Sprint and a 3,000 euro cash prize.

While we are delighted to confirm our continued collaboration with the City of Maastricht and the MECC Arena, due to the current health pandemic the ‘formula’ for next season will look a little different… and with these necessary changes comes great opportunities to open up interaction and engagement in exciting ways not previously possible.
In due course we will be writing to you again to explain exactly how the various Esport aspects of Sim Formula Europe 2021 will be shaped, but for now we would like to introduce something new – our Heusinkveld Peregrine Mod Competition!
THE HEUSINKVELD PEREGRINE MOD COMPETITION
We are delighted to announce that 10 community created livery designs will be selected for use in the Heusinkveld Peregrine Mod Competition aspect of Sim Formula Europe 2021. The selected liveries will adorn the cars used by our Peregrine competition finalists, and the overall winning design will then be added to rFactor 2 as default content on the 2019 Audi R8 LMS EVO. Furthermore, the winning livery designer will also take home an incredible package of computer gaming goodies from our generous sponsors at Cooler Master – worth almost 500 euros in value!
The livery competition begins today (Monday 9th November) and closes at 23:59 CET on the evening of Sunday 29th November. Livery submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than this date, and all submissions should be packaged in a suitable mod format to work within rFactor 2.

Livery designs are for the 2019 Audi R8 LMS EVO available as DLC content within rFactor 2.

Liveries should be submitted in line with the guidance issued below, and using the logos provided within the ‘Logos and Resources’ section of this post. Each mod submission should be sent to email@example.com before the end of November 29th and include at least 4 images of the design (front, back, top and side view).
The livery should be packaged as a mod that can be installed in rFactor 2, and should be applied to the Audi R8 LMS GT3 EVO 2019 car model.
Each livery submission must include sponsor logos from our partners Heusinkveld, rFactor 2, Sim Formula Europe and Studio 397, and the design should be based around our competition theme of the Peregrine Falcon.
Why a Peregrine Falcon? As the fastest animal on Earth, this majestic bird is capable of achieving speeds up to 389 km/h and is the embodiment of strategy, aerodynamics and speed – something we think is entirely fitting with the ethos of our esport racing activity this season.
As Heusinkveld are the primary backer of this series, the Heusinkveld logo should appear as the most prominent ‘title sponsor’ of all submitted livery designs.
