Our F1 2024 Car

Introducing the
Weybridge Racing Formula 1
WRF1-24-A

An exceptional, high performance car exclusively engineered for F1 Esports, the WRF1 is a one-of-a-kind programmed primarily to push race limits. Distinctly innovative in both design and build, the WRF1 is a new, ground-up platform ready to deliver winning performance on every race circuit with its core features of instant power delivery, precise handling, and championship-class reliability .

Our 2024 car is product of leading edge technology and perfected automotive craftmanship. The WRF1 is assembled 75% of ultralight composites, with its optimised carbon fibre monocoque chassis housing the first ‘nano’ class inline-6 Mercedes-AMG modelled power-unit capable of producing 1,008 hp, supported with advanced electronic systems including a break-through SECU engineered by Sony.

At Weybridge Racing, we believe our vision of constructing the perfect F1 Esports car is realised with the latest WRF1. Tuned for aggressive demands of Esports competitive racing, the production of the WRF1 is exactly what our F1 Esports drivers have been waiting for – a car that challenges the digital engineering status quo to exceed high expectations. We hope you will agree our WRF1 is quite a looker too!

Our F1 Esports Team

Weybridge Racing is an innovative Formula One (F1) Esports Constructor and Racing Team which builds, develops, maintains and operates its racing platform based on the F1 Simulator Network (see f1sim.net for further information), a digitally-optimised and high-performance simulation engine which hosts our WRF1 car for F1 Esports race craft and competition.

Weybridge Racing is principally based on the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team (MAPF1) ethos and inspired by the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Esports Team (MAPE).

Weybridge Racing is keen to recruit, train and develop new F1 Esports Pro and Expert level drivers, in readiness for the next F1 Esports season, leagues and championships. Irrespective of age, gender, nationality, background, etc. – if you believe you have what it takes to be part of an elite F1 Esports team, then please get in touch here: Enquiries.
