We have created 2 test events, one for 1:10 electric touringcars 13.5T at Carpet 2, and one for short course trucks 13.5T at MHS 1. These events are open to all, also free-2-play members can participate.

The purpose of these 2 events is to test the new bump-up round system which we plan to use for the upcoming VRC Worlds events.

The bump-up system is different from the current system.
After qualifying the top 1...4 will go directly to the Super Final, they don't participate in the semi finals.

There will be 2, 3 or 4 bump-up semi finals, from which the numbers 1-2-3 (depending on how many direct qualifyers and how many semi finals) will go to the Super Final. There will be just 1 Super Final in the last round.

For example:

Direct qualifyers: 1

3 semi finals:

Numbers 1-2-3 from each semi final will go to Super Final with 10 drivers.

We have one test event using racer classes Club, Sport and Pro, the ... read more

2017 SEASON 2 1:8 NITRO BUGGY SPEC round 5 NEO-9

PRO level

American talented youngster Tom Rinderknecht was showing remarkable pace during the qualifying. Something about his skills tells when also Worldchampion Warren Jones was behind when round ended. Ok, Warren wasnt far, and it was just early stage of this event and pace would go better lap by lap with both of these talents. There was only 0.6 seconds separating Rinderknecht and Jones. And it was looking even more promising as Austrian Martin Wollanka was standing at third spot, and he was also really close, only 0.8 seconds away from fastest pace. French talent Gaetan Anger earned fourth grid for the final, he was 3.2 seconds from Rinderknecht.
Maryan Beresh was fifth and Harry Schnarkowski sixth fastest. Robert Hillman who had made comeback, was struggling a bit with rhytm and pace, b... read more

In the news item about the beta testers a discussion developed about the role VRC members can play in promoting VRC worldwide. I feel this is an important issue that should be continued in a forum topic.

Go to and join the discussion!

I have closed this topic, of the 40 responses 34 qualify as Beta Tester, together with our hard-core beta testers we will have a group of 50 testers with a good spreead between on and off-road. I will start preparing the beta test accounts and will send an email with instructions to the new beta testers how to access the beta test forum and how to install the beta test version of VRC Pro. Those who didn't qualify did not have a Lifetime subscription, maybe they will qualify for the next round of beta testers.

Thanks to all who have responded, I look forward working with the new beta testers to improve VRC Pro and continue to enjoy new content and new features in the future.



Before VRC releases new content, tracks, cars, a new class, the content is tested in a special test environment called Beta Test. In the past we have invited active VRC racers to join beta testing and to help improve VRC on behalf of the VRC community.

2017 SEASON 2 1:10 SC TRUCKS 13.5 ROUND 5 Bash Pit Short

Tom Rinderknecht and Sandro Cabreira were in top spots after qualifying. These two had great battle of the pole and finally 0.522 seconds was separating these when round ended, Rinderknecht on pole and Cabreira in second place. If it was tight between those two at front, also from the third grid we saw very close fight. Carson Yeung and Robert Hillman served this fight, and Yeung took the third with 0.8s margin ahead of Hillman.

As the tone shouted for the main and PRO level was on their way, Prieto took the furios start from the 6th grid and got the lead. But after few laps of driving, Prieto`s car visited on its side and Cabreira and Rinderknecht got pass. And it was close call, between Cabreira and Rinderknecht. Margins were really tiny, pace was same and only mistake w... read more
