Precision Motorsports Race of Champions

Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by Johannes Kunkel, Dec 21, 2012.

  1. It´s time to celebrate the end of a long and glorious season of racing, which means it´s again time for the annual Simracing Race of Champions, organized by Precision Motorsports for the 4th year in a row. The event will take place on Saturday the 12th of January, starting from 19:00 CET onwards. The event will be broadcasted live, and everyone is invited to join together in our IRC Channel watching the event.

    We will once again see a very competetive field with invited top level simracers including 2 times RoC winner Ondrej Kuncman, 3 times FSR world champions Bruno Marques and Bono Huis, iRacing's star Atze Kerkhof, 2012 FSR World Series champion and last year's RoC finalist Jack Keithley, FSR World Championship race winner and 2012 World Series vice champion Ivar Kalamees, 2011 FSR World Series champion and 2010 RoC finalist Jeffrey Rietveld and last but not least, real racing star and Formula Renault 2.0 2012 champion Stoffel Vandoorne and 8 wildcard drivers. The wildcards are available to everyone and will be given to the winners of 2 Qualifying events ran as a Race of Champions shootout and taking place on the 4th and 5th of January at 19:00 CET using rFactor 1. The 2012 Race of Champions Main Event will be the first one to take place in the brand new simulation rFactor 2.

    Sign-ups for the Race of Champions are open from now until Friday, 4th of January. Everyone is welcome to join. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us here.

    Johannes, more information on the cars and track to be used would be appreciated, as some of the drivers of Positive SimRacing could have interest.

    Thanks in advance,
    Javier Álvarez
  6. I believe it's secret to avoid massive hotlapping :)

  7. I just signed in can you please accept.
  8. Can you please post the mod until 29th December because I leave the next day and I won't be at home to 4th January and I won't have much time to practice the track.

  10. Would have loved to have a go but im leaving to thailand on 3rd.. :(
  11. Oh how I wish this was rFactor 1 :(
  12. So I can sign up just to see where I would place in Qualification events even though I won't be able to race?
  13. That's like saying in the real RoC:

    "The group stages are in Thailand but the finals are in London"

    Rather stupid. Having different sims for different rounds, especially as rFactor 2 doesn't have any proper and legal RoC Track.
  14. No, just use different cars for Qualification and Finals. Then the people who make it to the final are unable to practice in the correct cars, therefore being pointless to practice.
  15. That's why you have it on rFactor 1...
  16. I just don't understand the logic in the idea.

    If you want to stop drivers testing for a week, use different cars; not a different sim.

    BREAKING NEWS: RoC Officials decide to go to London after Thailand to stop drivers having an advantage! Also, motorbikes will be used so it isn't unfair on motorcyclists etc.

    Notice my sarcasm above.

    There is no other community that have swapped sims during a RoC Event. They have swapped the cars.
  17. The first Post has been updated with the 8 invited Simracing Stars and the Highlights of the 2010 and 2011 Race of Champions.
