Season 6 of the rFactor 2 Competition System is officially underway

Season 6 of the rFactor 2 Competition System is officially underway

New online daily races and championships are now available within rFactor 2, plus qualifying is open for the next Le Mans Virtual Cup race at Monza.

The sixth season of the rFactor 2 Competition System is officially live! Sim racers alike on the rFactor 2 platform can stack up against one another in official races on the Competition System, a relatively new process added to the fold earlier this year.

Moving into Season 6, there will once again be a selection of daily races, weekly championship series, and possibly the biggest draw to the season will be the chance to qualify for the Le Mans Virtual Cup event coming up at Monza.

Here are the events listed currently on the rFactor 2 Competition System. Happy racing!
