“The FIA WTCR 2018 is coming to RaceRoom - and it kicks off with a 25.000€ Esports WTCR Launch Event at the Nürburgring


It’s all change for the 2018 WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO. A brand new name, a large number of newcars, an updated race format that promises even more action and a big field of strong drivers, looking more competitive than ever.


But when it comes to virtual racing, there will be consistency. Eurosport Events, RaceRoom and Sector3 Studios are happy to announce that they continue theirpartnership, and that the FIA WTCR 2018 will come to RaceRoom along with a huge Esports WTCR campaign, in cooperation with the Nürburgring and KW Suspensions.


RaceRoom and Eurosport Events already had a successful partnership in past years, with the FIA WTCC being represented in the racing simulation starting from the 2013 season to 2017. Last year, the inaugural eSports WTCC was run as an onlinechampionship, with German simracer Alexander Dornieden taking the title, and even securing himself a place in the Race Of Champions.

This year, the stakes are raised for the Esports WTCR. It all kicks off in thering°arena at the Nürburgring with the Launch Event. Qualifiers will be held on-site on May 10th and 11th, where all gamers and simracers are invited to push the WTCR cars to the limit, beat the real WTCR drivers and qualify for the races on May 12th, which will be broadcasted live online. For spectators, entry is free at the venue. A large amount of drivers will have the opportunity of competing against similarly skilled drivers and winning their share of the 25.000€ prize pool, due to the division model and a big prize split, where over 80 drivers will receive prize money.

Great news, although I suspect I won't be entirely satisfied until they give us the option to create our own version of the WTCR with all the excruciating embarrassment taken out of it. Shame they couldn't have gotten rid of some of that in the cross-over process...
