RaceRoom Competition Offers Winner a ROKiT F4 Seat

A new sim racing competition held in RaceRoom Racing Experience offers competitors a chance to win a seat in a Formula 4 car.

If you are 14 or 15 years old, RaceRoom is offering you the chance to win a seat in a ROKiT F4 car in the British F4 Championship.

ROKiT Racing Star will be held over 5 rounds of racing followed by a grand final race, and the overall winner in both the boys and girls categories will receive professional driver training as well as a seat in a real-world Formula 4 series.


The first round is being held on the Silverstone track, and qualifying is now open. Qualifying for Silverstone will end on February 2nd, then the race will be held on February 5th. Future rounds will be held at the Red Bull Ring, Monza, Spa and Hockenheim, and the grand final location has yet to be announced.

For those who don't come out on top, there are other exciting prizes as well. 2nd and 3rd place will each be entered into a karting championship.. A ROKiT e-bike will also be awarded to each racer in the top 10 at the end of the competition.

This is an exciting opportunity for young drivers. Good luck to all who enter.

DRATS! I'm too old and too slow.

:roflmao:

I can see a teenager getting time on his parent's sim rig. Especially if the rig isn't some sort of over-the-top arrangement with motion, VR, tensile belt, gravity generators and cryptocurrency, then sure little Timmy or T-Dog as he likes to be called; would have plenty of time in RaceRoom.

McLaren's idea with Shadow Project was to expand the competition to as many platforms as possible to be able to judge from the largest talent pool possible.

This seems like the exact opposite.

How many 14/15 year olds are into simracing at all? How many of them have free access to a PC-based sim with time enough to practice? How many of them play RaceRoom? How many of them are girls?

This seems like a competition viable for teenagers that are already well into karting and no-one else.

There are lots on places like TikTok and Instagram, but they seem more interested in Drift and point to point touge style stuff

You'd be surprised at the size of the junior racing community in the UK, and pretty much all of us, whether we are actually racing or still trying to find a way to afford it, are regularly on the sim. I see people from Ginetta Juniors, Fiesta Juniors, F4 etc. on iRacing and R3E all the time because we all agree it's an awesome tool for practicing technique before doing the real thing.

And as much as experienced karters will definitely make up some of the entry pool, I'd put money on at least one of the winners not being because there are some damn good, dedicated drivers out there who just can't afford to race the real thing. That's the basis that all racing scholarships are based on and they are only getting more popular as time goes on, this being evidence of that.

Sadly I can't enter because I'm a bit too old but I'm really intrigued to see how this pans out.
 
My son is 15 and is currently the fastest by some margin in the competition but he's ineligible because he will be 16 this year after the competition is over so saying its open to 14 and 15 year old's is incorrect. Ignore the current league standings because some racers have decided to do the boys and girls groups to make themselves look top on points

My son mainly races F1 and has raced against all the top F1 sim races including the current champion so it is an active scene, not sure about the girls though but give it a few years and my daughter will probably be following in her older brothers foot steps
