SRO Motorsports Group has agreed to a significant expansion of its collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) that will encompass a major presence in GT World Challenge and continued support for a number of SRO America programmes.
For 13 years, AWS has been the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 175 fully featured cloud computing services. Last year the firm entered into a new collaboration that saw AWS become the official cloud and machine learning provider for SRO America, as well as a series partner of Pirelli GT4 America and TC America.
Following on from a highly successful initial season, an expanded agreement has been reached that will see the company increase its commitment to become the new title presenter of GT World Challenge. Composed of continental series in Europe, Asia and America, this global platform allows international automotive manufacturers to compete through their customer racing programmes.
In 2020 it will be known as GT World Challenge Powered by AWS, with 22 non-clashing events staged globally under this name. Each regional series will also carry the Powered by AWS title throughout the upcoming season.
As part of the agreement, AWS has become the official cloud and machine learning provider for GT World Challenge. This will allow SRO to leverage the firm's extensive suite of innovative cloud services, as well as its artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities, to provide an enhanced experience for teams, drivers, and fans.
