Graham Raistrick from the UK and Tom Ebersole from the US are the first r/c racers ever to have reached 100,000 km with an r/c car. That's an incredible 2 1/2 times around the world! They are the first 2 members in the illustreous VRC PRO CENTURION club and we have awarded them both with a nice bottle of champaign to enjoy this historic moment.
It turned out to be a very close race between Tom and Graham, with Tom ahead until Tuesday but Graham made an immense effort to catch up with Tom. In fact, taken by the second, minute and hour it turns out that Graham crossed the 100,000 km finish line slightly before Tom. We weren't monitoring this historic occassion 24/7 else we would have seen it ourselves. But as our resolution for this 'race to the 100K' was in days we will call it a draw.
We met up with Tom, one of the most senior virtual r/c racers in VRC Pro and ask him a few questions. An interview with Graham will follow shortly!
PB: Congratulations to reach this incredible milestone of 100,... read more

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 ... read more
