Traditionally December is VRC Worlds month. Not only the annual holiday season, but also the most anticipated month in virtual r/c racing. Thousends of r/c racers from all over the world are now preparing for the VRC Worlds.

This year we will introduce a new class: Rally X and we will kick of the VRC Worlds with the very first World Championship for Rally X on November 29th.
This class is based on the 1:8 electric buggy with lowered suspension, special wheels and tires and of course special rally X tracks. The Worlds will be raced on Rally X1, a mixed dirt-asphalt track located in a harbour area. In the future we plan to have more Rally X layouts on this location, but also on existing on-road tracks like Heemstede and Messina which will then be converted to Rally-X style tracks for the occassion of Rally X visiting these tracks.

A total of 17 VRC Worlds events will be organized, All classes except the 3 NASCAR truck classes will be raced in both Open class and Spec class. The Open and Spec class will be raced on the same track and at the same time. Open classes will have just 1 World Champion, Spec classes will have World Champions in Pro, Sport and Club class. 2016 IFMAR World Champion David Ronnefalk will feature in the 1:8 nitro and electric buggy classes on the new Las Vegas track.

We will release 4 new tracks, the forementioned Rally X1 track, the Las Vegas off-road track (2016 IFMAR Worlds), Sao Paulo Oval and VRC Carpet 6, a track designed by Jukka-Pekka Huhtalla from Finland. This lay-out won the track design competition held among VRC members in the middle of this year.

Each Worlds will have the following schedule
4 days of Timed practice (not mandatory to participate)
4 days of qualifying
3 days for semi finals
3 days for main finals

Posted by: Tommaso Andreuccetti (IT) on 19.11.2016 17:38:31 (UTC) Melzo is good! Kissimee Short , no! 5-6 tracks are better of Kissimee !! Also all tracks are better!


I know the feeling, but sounds like "klisee"...its same for everybody:)

And i also know that its not ideal for 1:10 nitro, needs precise driving and holding your speed. very technical track.

Posted by: Pieter Bervoets (NL) on 10.11.2016 12:06:15 (UTC) if the feeling is that 1:8 and 1:10 nitro Worlds should be held on the same track (Melzo) I can change that of course, no problem.
Do NOT change! It is absolutely impossible to please everybody every time. I don't like Melzo so I won't drive that. And next one complains next track. So on. Tracks are same for every contestant like it or not.

Agree with Vesa.

When is the release of the Las Vegas track?
12.11.2016 [12:19]
WRX drives like a mix of 1/10 on-road and 1/8 buggy. Looking forward for this class :)

He is right....Lots of people feel better or worse at certain tracks and you will not/can not appease everyone. I'm not saying to ignore all comments or suggestion but be careful how far you open this can of worms. Set it up Peter and they/we will race it, and if not, many many of other classes to chose from. Good luck to everyone that attends and thanks to Pieter for setting up another VRC Worlds schedule!
