RaceRoom’s Ranked Championship returns for Season 2 with format changes

RaceRoom's Ranked Championship returns for Season 2 with format changes

The ranked championship returns within RaceRoom, and this time there are more opportunities to enter, enhanced livestreams and trophies.

A relatively new occurrence, the second online ranked championship is coming soon for RaceRoom Racing Experience drivers and with some tweaks to the formula.

Following May’s first ranked championship, Season 2 will continue to offer a series of championships that log points and find an overall victor, with the best drivers winning prizes.

Up for grabs this time are virtual Race Points (vRP) – RaceRoom‘s in-game currency that can be used to purchase cars and tracks – for the top 10 finishers and physical trophies for the top three. All drivers who complete every round will also receive some form of vRP.

As ever, using the native ranking system, drivers will be placed into server splits based on their current ranking, with differing points awarded on the different servers.

The top Gold server, based on ranking, for the Pro championship will see its four races broadcast live on the RaceRoom YouTube channel, with coverage set to be expanded through driver interviews track presentations and giveaways.

There will be three main championships this time around: F4 Rookie Cup (open to all), WTCR Trophy (AM) and GT3 Pro Series (PRO).

This time around, more servers have been allocated to the competitions and in turn, the number of possible entrants:

  • Increased capacity from 72 drivers to 420 drivers (15 servers) for Rookies
  • Increased capacity from 72 drivers to 240 drivers for AM (8 servers)
  • Increased capacity from 72 drivers to 238 drivers for PRO (7 servers)

The Rookie races will be held on a Wednesday, ahead of the live-streamed AM/Pro races on Thursdays, where highlights of the Rookie race will be shown.

This is a clear statement of intent that RaceRoom is stepping up its ranked-racing involvement, plus broadcasting abilities, to help deliver further incentives to its community.

If you’d like to sign up, there’s an online form plus full regulations, and the main details are listed below.
