MONTPELLIER OFF-ROAD TRACK RELEASED

12.02.2015   Category: Site news Video: Pro  Pro  

We have added a new outdoor off-road track: circuit MBM - MONTPELLIER – France.
This exciting new track was created in close collaboration with the Montpellier club. It’s a typical French style track carved out in the terrain, and VRI’s graphics and 3D artist Tony West has delivered yet another masterpiece by capturing the right atmosphere and character of this track spot on!

FREE OPENING EVENTS FOR BUGGY AND SC TRUCKS

The release of the Montpellier track coincides with the 2015 Grand Prix de Montpellier, the European season opener which will attract a host of top level off-road racers from Europe and beyond. For those who can’t make it to Montpellier (and let’s face it, just a lucky 120 racers or so will…) they can now get the Montpellier track in VRC Pro and compete in the “Virtual GP de Montpellier” starting Friday February 13th. There will be open and Spec class events for 1:8 nitro buggies and 1:10 electric short course trucks. The new MONTPELLIER track will be FREE until Monday 16th, so racers from around the world can participate in these events for absolutely FREE!

EVENTS:
1:8 nitro buggy
1:8 nitro buggy spec
1:10 short course trucks
1:10 short course trucks 13.5T

Is that one concrete corner,.. supposed to feel like glare ice? Anyone have experience on this track in real life? I could see it being that slippery with a bunch of sand on it,.. just curious. :)


That is apparently how that corner is. We were asked to make it slippery by the track owners. In real life is painted and polished to deliberately be slippery.



I like this corner :-) drift buggy!!!

Great track. Really nice to drive!

Most fun track so far! Great job!

I can't believe that this track is made to be slippery because it's hard to drive on it anyway and it doesn't need to be harder. Very nice track though, and fun to drive. Keep it up VRC Pro! ☺
