RACING CALENDAR 2014 SEASON 2 PUBLISHED

We have just published the racing calendar for Season 2 for all classes. There are some significant changes made compared to the last seasons.

NEW SCHEDULE
Because the period April-September coincides with the outdoor racing season in most countries we have stretched the schedule from 3 classes per week to 2 classes per week, and the period from 3 months to 6 months. Now there will be 8 races in this (double) season 2, of which your 5 best results will count for the Series Championship. Each event will be split up in 3 racer classes Club, Sport and Pro.

NEW FORMAT
Another important change is that the evEnts now have only 2 rounds, Qualifying and Main finals. The reason for this is to make the events more compact, and to make sure that you can always raceyour qualifier and the main final in the middle of the week. Qualifying starts on Saturday and ends Wednesday morning early, and Main Finals start Wednesday morning and end Saturday morning early. With this new race schedule we are staying away from the busy racing weekends as much as possible which should increase the participation in Main Finals.

NEW TRACKS
In April we will release the Harper Adams Neo '13 track, and later in May the immense and world famous Pattay track, both tracks will be used in Season 2 buggy and short course series!

SPONSORS
TEAM ASSOCIATED will be the main sponsor of the nitro buggies, short course trucks, 1:10 electric touringcars and 1:12 sportscars series, classes in which Team Associated has a strong presence.

We welcome RUNNER TIME as sponsor of the nitro on-road series. Runner Time is one of the premier brands for high performance nitro fuels and we are proud to see this Italian company involved in VRC Pro.

RACER LEVEL ADJUSTMENT
At the end of the 1st quarter of 2014 we will readjust the skill levels for Season 2. We will notify you with in-game and website announcements to check your new skill level out and to adjust your racer class to an even higher class if you feel you're ready for it.
