On November 28th the 2015 VRC Worlds will kick off. First the Spec classes will be raced and later in December the open or modified classes.
For the first time in VRC history you will have the opportunity to vote on which track the 2015 VRC Worlds will be held in each of the classes, and also what format.
As before, the open and spec class will be raced on the same track. You can vote on whether the Spec classes will be raced in the opposite direction of the open class. Another question will be if the open classes should be raced in just 1 racer class, so everyone races in the same event. Spec class will be raced with 3 racer classes: Pro, Sport and Club.
You can vote for the Worlds tracks and the racfe format in our new polls. You can only cast your vote 1 time per poll. The results will be visible. Visit the Polls page here. There will also be links to the polls on the News page, the Forums page and on the Community page.

Updated tracks to fix pitlane issue*
- Bangkok 1:10
- Bangkok 1:12
- Osaka (3 versions)
- Sao Paulo
- Speedway (3 versions)
- Psycho Nitro Blast (2 versions)
*Some pitlanes had issues with the marshal point inside the pit lane. When your car was stuck against the track barrier in the pitlane and the marshal was initiated (with spacebar), the car would be placed back on the track and not to the actual pitstop area. The pitlane areas have been redefined to solve this issue.
New oval tracks:
- Lostallo Oval
- Keitune Oval
Together with the RC Speedway Oval course and Osaka oval we now have 4 outdoor oval tracks. These tracks will be used for next season NASCAR Truck Series!
