2014 VRC WORLDS

The VRC Worlds schedule is out, and what a month of exciting virtual r/c racing lies ahead of us. Six major events on 3 exciting tracks. Yes just 3 tracks because this year we have combined classes to race on the same track, just like what happens at real events. Last year, 2654 racers participated in the various classes including some really big names for the real r/c racing scene, like: Ronnefalk, Joor, Wollanka, Craig, Gillespie, Lutz. This year we are looking to more than double this number with the addition of the Spec classes, making the 2014 VRC Worlds by far the biggest r/c happening in the World! Don’t be surprised to see more big names appearing in the 2014 VRC Worlds… Many have been invited!

The nitro buggies and short course trucks will be racing on… NAXOS 2014 IFMAR Worlds. This new track will be released 2 weeks before the VRC Worlds to give everyone an equal chance to practice for the VRC Worlds. The nitro buggies will race in the normal (counter clockwise) direction like at the real IFMAR Worlds, and will feature a grueling 60 minute Main final! The short course trucks will be racing in reversed direction and feature a 15 minute final, meaning at least 1 battery change during the final!

1:10 and 1:12 Electric will be racing at Collegno, Italy, host of the 2006 IFMAR Worlds. 1:10 ISTC will be racing the normal direction (counter clockwise) and will feature a 15 minute final, requiring 2 pit stops for a battery change. 1:12 Sportscars will be racing in reversed direction and will also have a 15 minute Main final. The extended main finals are a ‘worlds first’ for electric racing. A battery change takes about 15 seconds and this will throw in a completely new strategic dimension for these classes. Motor selection and gear ratio will become even more important!
1:8 and 1:10 nitro on-road will visit the spectacular Luxembourg track for their Worlds contest. 1:8 Sportscars will race the normal counter clockwise direction and will have a 1 hour main final, while the 1:10 200mm sedans will race in the opposite direction and will also feature a 60 minute main final.

All Worlds events will start with free practice (not mandatory to participate), a 6 runs qualifying round, a 2 runs semi final, and a 1 run main final. The Worlds will be split up in PRO, SPORT and CLUB classes.

The 3 Worlds tracks will be free for all members from 1 week before the event until a few days after the event is finished giving everyone equal chances to practice on these tracks, develop good setups and most important of all, good rhythm!

This happened last time! So I lose a day of practice. That is a big difference, when we only get 2 days of practice total. So all Aussies and NZ will get one day practice
