2013 SEASON 1 REDUCED FROM 12 TO 6 RACES

10.01.2013   Category: Site news

Because members reported not to be too happy with the very busy Season 1 racing schedule, one race every week in each of the classes, we have decided to go back to 1 race in each of the classes every 2 weeks. This will give a bit of breathing space between races and also opens up the possibility to race in several classes. The Season Series are now all 6 events with 4 counting for the Series championship.

We have also added an official series for 1:10 electric Spec class. The first season will only be 5 races with 3 counting. All Spec events will be on the same dates and same tracks as modified class.

We hope this adjustment to the schedule will land well in our racing community. Enjoy the season!

thanks for your feedback. It's impossible to suit everyone, we'll go with this format for Season 1. It's half of what we first had, it's double compared to 2012.

We will keep an eye on how this is working out. For season 2 we will introduce the A-B-C final system which will make the racing a whole lot more interesting we think. And quite likely 1:8 buggies will be added as a class by then too, so that will mean plenty of racing in all classes.


A-B-C are very nice as in real.

Another option might be to allow racers to post 'all' ther rounds in one hit.
i.e. I sit down and do the Practice....then the 1st round...then the second round up to the final and maybe do a replay for the super final (just in case).
These results could be logged and not published until the relevant round is started. Allowing me to get the car/transmitter setup and do a whole event in one night (while everything is setup correctly).
This takes full advantage of the 'online virtual game' capabilities AND minimises the amount of setup/race time AND makes it more convenient for racers to get their runs in WHEN THEY CAN.

Interesting idea, but will not work with the new A-B-C final format.

12 to 6 is a too drastic cut in my opinion.


Yeah, maybe for On-Road, but Off-Road we have only fews tracks and 1 class.
