LIFETIME ALL-INCLUSIVE DISCONTINUED PER JAN. 1ST 2017

13.12.2016   49 comments

The Premium Lifetime All-Inclusive membership will be discontinued starting 2017. This premium license gives access to all tracks, chassis and components, including all new releases.

VRI (Virtual Racing Industries), after careful analysis of its current business model, has come to the conclusion that the Lifetime offer conflicts with its goal to offer the best possible continuity of its services, development and content releases.

In order to have a more continues stream of revenues, starting January 1st 2017, only the 3, 6, 12 and 24 months All-Inclusive licenses will be available. For first time All-Inclusive buyers there will be special introduction offers which can be purchased only once.

Of course current Lifetime All-inclusive members, and those who purchase this premium license before Jan. 1st 2017, will continue to enjoy the benefits of this extraordinairy membership. Livetime in this case meaning: for the live of VRC Pro

HALL OF FAME - UPDATE YOUR PROFILE PHOTO

We are currently working on a Trophy and Hall of Fame feature for the website (finally...).

In the Hall of Fame all World Champions and Series Champions will be displayed with their (virtual) trophies. The structure we have developed goes back to the very beginning, 2011. You can select World or Series Champion, Club, Sport or Pro, which class and what year. With this Hall of Fame we will visualize all the Champions from the past till today.

Of course the trophies and awards will also be visible on each individual member page, here you will also see the trophies won in other official races, TQ awards and 1-2-3 positions in B-C-D mains. Also each event and Series page will have a trophy page.

One quite essential feaure will be that members should use real photos from themselves, not of their car or some other image, it would really depreciate the whole effort of creating such a Hall of Fame. Profile photos which only show your face are really what you want, like Dana Bailes and Pierre Dumusc.

EXE
We have released a new exe which has the new 'cars in background of pit table' feature disabled. Too many issues were reported and we have decided, as we are already well underway in the 2016 VRC Worlds, to disable this feature for now until we have had a chance to iron out the reported problems. In the test environment we were testing with very limited available replay files, on Live however we experienced some unexpected issues. We apologize for this inconvenience.

RALLY X1 TRACK
Some issues were reported in the past week since we released this track. We have prepared an update to fix these issues. This update will be released on Wednesday morning after the Qualifying round has finished and before the Semi finals start.

NEW RALLY X BODIES
We have released 7 new Rally X bodies. Each of the 8 body designs now has its own body, each design comes in 8 different color combinations, increasing the number of options from 8 to 64! The default body design is now the red-black body, with 8 different colo... read more

The 2016 IFMAR Worlds Las Vegas track has just been released following a last minute adjustment requested by the bet testers. As can be seen from the promo video, the Las Vegas track is in a 'blasted' state like it was in a later stage of the Worlds, quite different from most of our other off-road tracks.

This new addition to the collection of large outdoor off-road tracks is free only for the duration of the VRC Worlds, on January 3rd the track will have to be purchased or you need one of the all-inclusive licenses to continue to race on this track. The track is planned for the 2017 Series nitro and electric buggies and short course trucks.

SAO PAULO OVAL RELEASED

The new Sao Paulo oval will prove to be a very demanding oval as it is quite different from the other ovals. With 175m length it's surely hight speed, but with a height difference of some 3 meters between the front and the back straight it means that turn 1 is serious drop, and turn 2 is a steep climb. First to go are the 1:10 nitro trucks. Enoy the VRC Worlds.

The track is free only for the duration of the VRC Worlds, on December 28 the track will have to be purchased or you need one of the all-inclusive licenses to continue to race on this track. The track is planned for the 2017 Series Nascar trucks.

With the start of the 2016 VRC Worlds 1:12 sportscars just hours away we have released the new VRC Carpet JPH track. The 255m long track is wide and has a great flow to it, which will make it easy for our Club level racers to get hooked. More advanced racers will have to practice hard to squeeze out the last tenths of a second out of this track. We expect very tight racing in the VRC Worlds. Thank you Jukka-Pekka for a great design!

The track is free only for the duration of the VRC Worlds, on January 3rd the track will have to be purchased or you need one of the all-inclusive licenses to continue to race on this track. The track is planned for the 2017 Series 1:10 and 1:12 electric racing.

Enjoy this new track!

VRC presents: the 2016 IFMAR Worlds track in Las Vegas. It has taken the VRC team little over 2 months to get this exciting track ready for the 2016 VRC Worlds. With 2016 IFMAR World Champion David Ronnefalk on the drivers list this is your chance to re-live the 2016 IFMAR Worlds and try to beat David on his own turf.

3D track designer and artist Tony West was pushed to the limit by the beta test team to make the track as close to the 2016 IFMAR Worlds track as possible, including the many holes and bumps. Having to master such a torn down track will add a new challenge to VRC racers!

The 2016 VRC Worlds kick off with 1:10 Short Course trucks on Dec. 6th, then 1:8 electric buggies on the 13th, and the 1:8 nitro buggies with David Ronnefalk on the 20st of December.
