The Formula Challenge Series on rFactor 2 returns for a second season in 2022, with the fiction V10-powered single-seaters set for another highly-competitive year.
Starting on 28th March, hot lap qualifying will begin to set the grids for the multiple splits. As it was last year, the top split will get a live broadcast live on the Traxion.GG YouTube channel and the top driver will get a chance to race in the top-level Formula Pro Series in Season 3.
Utilizing the Formula Pro open-wheel machine, the qualifications are open to anyone through the rFactor 2 Competition System. The best times will make the 26-car Top Split field, but it is important to know that 27th and beyond will be split into their own races.
The venue for the first hot lap qualifying challenge will be Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and the first race will take place on 16th May.
For the Challenge Series specifically, there will be a reduction in power to 600bhp for the newly updated Formula Pro cars. The cars will have full power in the Formula Pro Series and in general outside of the Challengers.
Keep in mind that the Formula Pro Series should have their own manufacturer differences in Season 2, so we have that to look forward to in the future.
The first hot lap qualification period lasts from 28th March until 17th April, a total of three weeks. Sessions will go up every three hours between 01:00 CET to 22:00 CET every day and will last 105 minutes.
Last year, Dawid Mroczek took top honors in the Challenge Series and won his place in the upcoming Formula Pro season – details for which are yet to be revealed.
It’s nearly time for you to jump onto the rFactor 2 Competition System and take part in the latest Formula Challenge Series. Stay tuned to Traxion.GG for further announcements about the Formula Esports Series soon.
