Are you looking to unleash your competitive side? Do you want to get as close as possible to competing in the real WTCR, and challenge sim racers from all over the world? Join the Esports WTCR Oscaro Online Championship. At the Launch Event at the Nürburgring, German racer Julian Kunze secured the title – but now the competition continues online and the cards are re-shuffled.
The championship consists of two parts:
7 rounds of time attack, open from August 15th until November 6th. You can join whenever you want and improve your times and collect points. Perhaps the real WTCR drivers will make an appearance on the leaderboard, too.
In addition, the best drivers from each time attack round will qualify for multiplayer races, where they score points for the Multiplayer Championship. We are hosting four servers, and the top 2 servers will have their races LIVE streamed on the FIA WTCR Facebook and YouTube page. Make sure to qualify, or tune in to the streams to follow the exciting action.
Of course, this year there are some updated rules and regulations. Make sure to read them before you join:
Are you ready? Make sure to get the cars and tracks for this season!
Information has been updated with provisional timetable, exact number of drivers participating in the final races (it's 88 drivers!) and registrations for the bus shuttle:
I am sending out the tickets today for the drivers that participated in the last year.
There will be an additional endurance race, taking place at the same weekend. If you are interested in coming to the WTCR Launch Event, make sure to drive here too: http://www.raceroom.com/en/events/nuerburgring-esports/
Rulebook with prize split and additional info has been published:
In order to claim prize money, you have to message us with all details, within two weeks starting now! All details are specified under §19 in the rulebook.
Tomorrow 12:00 is the deadline for claiming your prize money!
Here you can post screenshots, videos and everything else that is creative!
Oh, what is this?
For all people that are interested in the Esports competitions and not only the time attack, but also the multiplayer races - I would recommend keeping your sunday evenings free. Not only the super fast guys! More info of course soon™.
Another car that you can pick for the season!
In the eSports WTCC, Honda won the championship. Will the TCR version be a strong contender, too?
All details about the Esports championship will be revealed on Wednesday.
Let me provide some additional information today already - the calendar for the multiplayer races.
Oh and here are some Hyundais!
Here you can talk about the online championship!
Esports WTCR starts later today! I really recommend that you test all the cars, on leaderboard and also on practice and multiplayer. The tyres have been improved quite a bit and the fastest car on the leaderboard might not even be the fastest car over a whole race distance! And then of course, other cars might be fast on other tracks. Which one will you pick?
Maybe the Golf?
Esports WTCR OSCARO Online Competition is live now!

Regarding the balance of performance between the cars.
Our tester team did a lot of work. But obviously with bigger differences between the cars, 7 cars total and limited time, it may not be 100% perfect.
It would be great to receive feedback from the drivers how these cars compare, on multiple tracks, in various sessions. If there are cars that are off the pace, we will make an adjustment. Obviously we will not slow down a car (it will not work since all competitions will be always open), but if a car is too slow, we might give it a small boost. So you can also be sure that you should pick the car that you like the most, and don't have to drive a certain car only because of performance.
