Having footage available of the Grand Opening event at NEO14, and footage of the real NEO14 A-Main, called for a 'Virtual vs Real' study of the 1:8 nitro buggies, never done before. Same cars, same track, same camera position and zooming (as much as possible) so we should end up with very similar pictures. And we did. We modified the brightness and color of the VRC video a bit to match the real NEO14 which of course is at an indoor facility with quite a bit of smoke (and we don't fill our virtual hall with smoke...). We even added a touch of blur, so keep in mind that the actual VRC footage is a lot sharper, brighter and colorful.
It's quite amazing to see how similar the cars in VRC Pro behave to the real cars. It's evidence of how good the physics and vehicle dynamics of VRC Pro are, check out the video and see for yourself.
Another interesting analysis: the average lap time of the VRC Pro winner Tobias Isaksson was 28.4 sec (2 pit stops in the 20 minute race), and Ty Tessmann, winner of the re... read more

Jakub Rozycki is the proud winner of the virtual version of the last EURO NITRO SERIES at Fiorano this past weekend, beating 9x IFMAR World Champion Lamberto Collari by just 0.006 sec after 45 minutes of racing. Never ever has the difference between the real and the virtual race, on the same track been that close.
Like Lamberto Collari, Jakub Rozycki from Poland drove a perfect race, with just 1 serious mistake which cost him around 3 seconds. VRC World Champion Martin Wollanka showed up for the first time again after his debut at the 2014 IFMAR Buggy Worlds in Sicily, and finished a strong 2nd just 4 seconds down on the surprisingly fast Pole. Good old Giorgio Mingotti finished 3rd 2 laps down on the winner.
Result 45 minute A-Main:
1 Jakub Rozycki PL Pro 171 45:10.450
2 Martin Wollanka AT Pro 171 45:14.600
3 Giorgio Mingotti IT Pro 169 45:05.350
4 Antonello Parisi IT Pro 165 45:00.378
