Open Tournament – win a DeepRacer Evo

There’s no better way to try out your new racing skills than racing. Until 31st of December you can take part in reInvent Open Race. This is a virtual race on the European Seaside Circuit where you can try any of the three categories: Time Trial, Object Avoidance or Head to Bot. 15 racers can win the AWS DeepRacer Evo – the latest addition to the set, offering stereo vision and a LIDAR for that extra racing action.

And don’t forget to have a read about how the AWS DeepRacer League is changing in 2021.

DeepRacer now ships internationally, and for less (but not for long!)

DeepRacer now ships internationally almost everywhere and that stays! Most places around the world can now order the car for their own pleasure. Order on Amazon. Until the 31st of December you can enjoy a 20% discount. And if you join us for the live action in AWS DeepRacer League finals, you might get an extra discount on top of that!

Note: Batteries need to be ordered separately at least in international shipping – this is the change needed to enable international shipping.


DeepRacer League is a coopetition: while we compete, we also support each other as the more you help, the more you learn, and the more you learn, the better you become. AWS DeepRacer Community is the proof, having welcomed 3500+ members, becoming acknowledged and supported by AWS and supporting back.

We have the experts, the knowledge, and the tooling to bring your DeepRacer experience to a whole new level.

Join our Slack to share the joys and struggles and to get that extra help where you need it, when you need it. Connect with us to learn how you can use AWS DeepRacer to leverage cloud and machine learning adoption in your organisation while having lots of fun.
