We have some exciting news for you. The VRC Pro membership model (trial, lite and full membership) has changed completely into Free-to-Play and All-inclusive full memberships. Thanks to feedback from the community, we now have a much simpler, much more attractive membership structure for all current and future members.

This new membership replaces the Trial and Lite memberships, and basically gives you exactly the same as Lite, but now for unlimited time and totally free. Extra tracks, cars and other content, can still be purchased as before.

This new membership replaces the old Full membership and gives you access to all content: tracks, chassis, components, now and all future releases. As long as you have a valid all-inclusive membership subscription you can enjoy everything VRC Pro has to offer, and you're still building a loyalty discount (up to 30%) for your next renewal. We offer 1,3,6,12 and 24 months All-inclusive subscriptions, and e... read more

Three Tracks, Six Classes of Racing, Hours of Fun

Report by Donald Stark (VRC race reporter)

Never a rainy day in VRC!
I read a race report about the JConcepts summer tour round 1. The racing was concluded through the heat races and the mains were about to line up, when the clouds opened and ended the day of racing. The best thing about VRC, there is never a rainy day. When the race is over the car is in perfect condition and my tires are never dirty. Some live for tearing down the car and chipping clay out of places that defy the imagination. I love a clean car, but I like to race in the dirt, how can I do it all? Oh VRC, no maintenance, no mud, no rainy days just fun, fun, fun.

Heemstede, VRC Carpet 1, Silver Dollar

Report by Donald Stark (VRC race reporter)

The Series Points Race Heats Up
The “A” list of world class virtual racers take the drivers stand to contest for the championship in Japan. This week’s race was round 4 of 6 in the championship series. The top 14 in the points have raced round 1-4 but like Nostradamus, I’m going to make a prediction. Martin and Hiromu will be one and two when the dust settles. Both drivers have set out a few races and have now begun to make the run at the top spots. In VRC the points are dependent on four of the six races, the leaders have a big points spread but that will disappear when point are adjusted.

Race Report
Hokusei track, located in the middle of Japan, host of several JMRCA Japanese Nationals. For Japanese standards the Hokusei track is very big and wide. It has a nice fluent layout but is still very challenging.
When the warm ups concluded the pit crews got the cars fueled and s... read more

Report by Donald Stark (VRC race reporter)

I remember a time when all I had was a bag of marbles and a combination of hot wheels and sizzler tracks. I was at my grandmother’s house on a rainy Saturday morning. I separated the marbles by colors and styles and then began running heat races on my custom built tracks. The winner went straight to the main event while the rest went into the semi bucket. My little hands could hold 6 marbles at a time so that is how many got to race at once. The event took all day, heat races, semi’s and main events. In the end only one marble would be the champion. That is how racing is, first place is first place and second is the first loser, never the less it is fun to be in the race.

I have to keep this in mind when I speak like I did in the last article, when I mentioned pretend racing. Racers are born we race what we have, we race from one light to the next, we plan our route and w... read more

1:10 200MM NITRO Spec and Modified - by SERPENT

Nitro 200mm Spec
In the first turn Jason Hillcoat took command of the race his smooth precise driving would prove hard to catch. By the end of lap 3 he was already into lap traffic. Second through 8th place would not be settled so easily. Troels Troelsen would mount a charge for second between lap 15 and 33 he was doing his best to hold off Leopold and Giovanni but he final dropped back on lap 34. Giovanni seemed to have a firm grip on second with his laser focus and steady driving he kept his MX 12 MAX XXL3 BL spec Powered 733 Serpent ahead of the rest of the field until the lap 55. Leopold put his race face on and started clicking off 13 second laps while Giovanni could only manage low 14’s in the pits Giovanni lost another second with a 19 second pit stop. Jason however was unaware of the battling behind him as he ran away with t... read more

2013 SEASON 2, Round 3 of 6. Mikes 2 SCT10 Off Road - by TEKIN

Short Course Racing

In order to give these reports I have to go back in time and watch the race. For those of you who don’t know how to navigate in VRC this may prove to be a helpful hint. When you launch VRC and your sitting at the pit table, click on events at the top of the screen. On the top left there are two radio buttons, Current Events, and Past Events. Anytime you want you can go back and visit a past event and race with the drivers or your choice. This is a very cool feature. Okay enough of that here we go on to the racing.

Spec Class 13.5 SC10
The Starting order was Kirby, Barnabas, Antonello, Eben, Matthew, Nicolas E., Nicolas L., Donald, Jim and Masato. Kirby took advantage of his pole position and ran as fast as he could to get away from the pack. The whoops and Rhythm sections made for so... read more
