In 2022, an all-new ADAC SimRacing Expo is going to excite SimRacers from all over the world – but it is not going to do this alone: In the RETRO CLASSICS BAVARIA, the event has a brand-new partner whose fair is going to take place at the same time as the Expo. What can you expect at NürnbergMesse from December 1st to 4th? Meet our partner RETRO CLASSICS BAVARIA!

At first glance, it would be easy to say that RETRO CLASSICS BAVARIA is a big classic car fair – but that is just one part of the philosophy of the event: Self-described as a fair for “Fahrkultur”, meaning driving culture, their portfolio includes apparel, culinary elements, model cars, and much more. SimRacing first became a part of this for the first time in December 2021, when the ADAC SimRacing Expo showed RETRO CLASSICS BAVARIA visitors what racing in a simulator is all about at a special event space in Nuremberg.

This year, both events are going to take place alongside each other, creating the unique opportunity for both to bring the respective other to the attention of their visitors. Car enthusiasts might catch the SimRacing bug, as many did at the 2021 RETRO CLASSICS BAVARIA or at RETRO CLASSICS Stuttgart in 2022, where the ADAC SimRacing Expo was present with a preview space again. SimRacers may find themselves excited by the classic cars, models and other elements of RETRO CLASSICS BAVARIA, which they otherwise might not have seen in person.

“I think it is an incredible addition to our motto of driving culture”, RETRO CLASSICS founder Karl Ulrich Herrmann said at the 2021 event. “SimRacing is making its way through the entire scene, no matter if it is 60-year-olds, 40-year-olds, old timer enthusiasts, people with connections to real racing – it is a part of it.”
