Event

Japan's largest e-motorsports stadium "AUTOBACS REDEE Emotorsports Stadium" in Osaka just opened on Friday, April 16.
AUTOBACS REDEE Emotorsports Stadium " in Osaka and " A PIT AUTOBACS SHINONOME " in Tokyo will be linked online for the e-motorsports tournament " AUTOBACSe-Motorsports Experience," an online e-motorsports tournament linked to the "A PIT AUTOBACS SHINONOME" in Tokyo, was held as well as an opening event.

Two venues, Tokyo and Osaka

While online tournaments are the mainstream, this event was held with full measures in place to prevent infection.
However, traveling from distant places is still a hurdle for players, regardless of the current circumstances.
In addition to transportation and accommodation costs, setting up a racing environment at home is also more expensive in e-motorsports than in other games.
In such a situation, it would be beneficial to be able to participate in a tournament at the nearest store or facility.

The "A PIT" in "A PIT AUTOBACS SHINONOME" reads "apit," and as a store brand next to Autobacs and Super Autobacs, it is a space that even non-car enthusiasts will want to visit.
The affinity between e-motorsports and cars is very high, and in fact, the store offers products that gamers would want to buy.

Families came with their children, and some fathers cheered from behind while their children entered.
The good thing about Autobacs (of course) is that you can come by car, spend time with your family, and play e-motorsports with your child!

There were parents and children entering the Osaka venue as well!
When I was at the venue, the staff asked me, as if it were a matter of course, "Parents and children next time too? I think this kind of atmosphere is what makes e-motorsports different from other e-motorsports.

It is amazing that Tokyo and Osaka are connected and competing in the same atmosphere as in real motorsports.
Even though online competitions have become the mainstream nowadays, it was great to see the competitions at the venue. (Sorry, I don't have the vocabulary.)

Speaking of conventions and events, they are all about the MC!
At this year's event, REDEE's operations manager, Yuma Nakamichi, aka "Midoroku (@kwsk_zx6r )" was the MC, and he made the "AUTOBACS e-Motorsports Experience" a lot of fun!

By the way, there were REDEE staff members at the Tokyo venue as well, and I was excited inside, "REDEE in Tokyo too...! " I was excited inside.

And of course, the race queens!

In regular motorsports, it's hard to get into the course and the distance between you and the spectators is far, but with e-motorsports, it's nice to be able to interact with the participants in such a close proximity!

Check out more Autobacs activities in the future!

Only "e" motorsports can connect the online venues of Tokyo and Osaka in this way.
It is fun to go to a circuit and experience real racing karts, but it is difficult to go to a circuit because it is far away from the venue.
If there are openings, you can enter at the store on the day of the event, so if you are interested, just take a look around and join! If you are interested, you can join!

We spoke with the staff about the newly opened "AUTOBACS REDEE Emotorsports Stadium" and "A PIT AUTOBACS SHINONOME," and we will bring you more details about them later!
