    Welcome to the FIA World Touring Car Cup 2018! You can get all the cars now, and the Esports WTCR OSCARO Online Championship also starts today!



    The WTCR class contains all 7 brands of the championship, including all official teams and drivers. The cars from Alfa Romeo, Audi, Cupra, Honda, Hyundai, Peugeot and Volkswagen are built to the highly popular TCR specifications, which are a great recipe for exciting touring car action. Get the cars here!

    Do you want to unleash your competitive side and get as close as possible to driving in the real WTCR? Then you should join the Esports WTCR OSCARO Online Championship here!

    The Esports WTCR OSCARO Online Championship is made up of two elements: seven rounds of time attack from 15 August until 6 November and a Multiplayer Championship.

    In the time attack championship, you can join whenever you want, on each of the 7 tracks.

    Multiplayer races will be streamed live on the the FIA WTCR OSCARO Facebook and YouTube accounts with graphics and expert commentary. All races will be held on Sunday evenings from 19h00 CET with the first event taking place at a virtual Hungaroring on Sunday 26 August.

    The real racers will make an appearance, too! Selected WTCR OSCARO drivers are expected to take part.

    “Esports WTCR OSCARO is a very good thing because it gives people around the world the chance to live something close to what we live. For sure I will take part because it’s also really good training for racing drivers and we know the level of simracers is very high.”

    Looks like this is first of those "paid" competitions. You'll need 199vRPs to enter. Would be nice to include this information in first post :p

    I am not really interested in competing in the eSport event but if this brings the new TCR cars to R3E so that I can buy them and run them on the tracks that I want to then I am all for this. When can we get a list of the cars that will be coming?

    I don't think I am going to pay to drive a FWD car in a E-Sport pseudo competition...
    But that's probably just me and my outmoded attitude :rolleyes:

    Cool! Official series is one of the things I bought Raceroom for, so I'm glad to see Sector 3 is not abandoning that model. I really enjoy the WTCC cars so I'm probably gonna enjoy these ones as well :)

    As for the paid competitions, I have nothing against the idea and find it a legitimate model considering the possibility of winning some money, but I know my limitations as a sim racer (I'm slooooww) so I'm not even gonna bother. I think I only have around 90vrp left in my wallet anyway :D
