2011 Precision Motorsports Race of Champions

Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by Johannes Kunkel, Nov 27, 2011.

  1. As another season has come to an end, it’s again time for the annual Race of Champions event, taking place for the third time. Precision Motorsports are organizing this year’s event, to be held on Sunday, December 11th, starting from 19:00 CET onwards. The event will be broadcasted live.

    With an exclusive grid of top level FSR World Championship and World Series drivers, including former FSR stars, the competition level is once again expected to be high. Needless to say, the winner of 2009, Bono Huis, and 2010, Ondrej Kuncman, will both participate.

    As last year next to the invited drivers there will be 8 slots open for everyone. In order to qualify for one of these slots you have to register for the Qualification event taking place on Friday, December 9th, and the top 8 finishers from there will advance to the main event.

  2. As we have heard that a few drivers would like to participate in the event but are unable to attend Friday's qualification, we have decided to give those a chance to qualify for the main event on Saturday. If you are uncertain of your participation on Friday, please send us a message and confirm your Saturday's participation by 15:00 GMT (16:00CET) on Friday. If you don't advance to RoC on Friday, you can try your luck again on Saturday.

    The Saturday's qualification will start at the same time as Friday's, with practice at 18:00GMT (19:00CET)

    Depending on the amount of drivers who will participate on Saturday, the system of advancing to RoC will be determined before Friday's Qualification.

    Those who haven't signed up for RoC yet due to unsuitable Friday`s schedule, you can sign up now for Saturday's qualification too. Remember though, it will be much more difficult to advance on Saturday (less open spots available) as Friday remains the main qualification event.

    If you are already registered but you want to sign up for the Saturday Session please contact us here
