12 MORE VRC WORLD CHAMPIONS CROWNED

31.12.2014   4 comments

Today the other 3 classes had their main finals completed, 1:8 nitro buggies at Naxos, 1:8 sportscars at Lostallo and 1:10 ITSC touringcars at Collegno. The 2014 VRC Worlds are now over and 12 more VRC World Champions are crowned!

The most controversial championship was 1:8 Nitro Buggies Open Class. Marcin Malinski’s result was disputed by 5 other racers which automatically triggers disqualification. But there was absolutely no ground to accuse Marcin of cheating and the disqualification was rolled back by race director Pieter Bervoets before the event finished but unfortunately this is not yet visible in the results where he still sits in p8. But Marcin Malinski is the undisputed 2014 nitro buggy VRC World Champion Open Class.

2 David Ronnefalk SE Pro 96 60:26.603

The long awaited Oslo track has been released today. This track was the very first track in VRC v3 and hit the computer screens exactly 10 years ago!

Oslo is a very compact track with a few tricky corners which you must get spot on to do consistent lap times. Enjoy the ride!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

2014 NAXOS IFMAR WORLDS TRACK RELEASED

December 1st update and release
Content update: 100 MB

NAXOS TRACK
Just 2 months after the Worlds, Virtual Racing Industries is releasing the Naxos track in Sicily, home of the 2014 IFMAR Worlds for nitro buggies. It’s a great but demanding track with lots of challenges, just like the real track proved to be back in September. We have made a comparison video between some real laps during the World Final, and who better to pick than World Champion Ty Tessman, against one of our beta testers Nicolas Loriot from France. As with earlier ‘virtual vs real’ comparison videos the resemblance between virtual and real is astonishing close, once more proof of the incredible accurate detail of the track and the fantastic realism obtained with our state of the art physics engine.

VRC CENTURION 1 GRAHAM RAISTRICK INTERVIEW

Interview with VRC Centurion 1 Graham Raistrick:

PB: Graham, congratulation with getting to the 100K point first. It looked like Tom was going to be the first to cross that line but you obviously made a big effort in the last day to get there first. This milestone means a lot to you then?

GR: First of all I would like to apologies to both Tom and you (and everyone for that matter) for taking you by surprise…even I wasn’t sure if I could get to the line before Tom. When it was ‘declared’ a ‘race’ in the October news letter ‘The Race is on – Who will reach the 100k First’….it has been in the back of my mind since…and I was one of the contenders, I’m a racer…it was going to be a race. As Tom got closer to the finish I snapped and HAD to have a go.
As to meaning a lot to me, Yes it does, as you know I am a great fan of VRC…have been from Version 3 and to have the honor of first to 100k means a lot to me. One for the history books you might say.

PB: what exactly did you do to ... read more
