    Event Introduction

    Have you got what it takes to be one of the top-ranked players in RaceRoom and ultimately, the best of the best?

    Since the December update, there has been ranked servers up in the multiplayer lobby for drivers to race together in an attempt to improve their rating. To recognize those who have hit the servers and improved their driving, and therefore rating, we will be putting on an invitational event for our elite to battle it out!

    On 17th March 2020 at 09h GMT, we will take a snapshot of the current rankings table and invite the top 30 drivers to the Ranked MP Invitational on 14th April 2020 at 18h GMT!

    Drivers have between now & 17th March to hit the ranked servers (marked with an R in the multiplayer lobby) to improve their ranking and make it into the top 30 to be eligible for an invite to the showdown event.

    Georg is standing strong at the top of the rankings!

    But... has 'only' risked his ranking by racing twice in the ranked servers since this event was announced, which is twice more than Mr Lohner & Mr Stofmeel of the top 10 drivers!

    Thomas Schulz & Franz Christian Andreas have made it into the top 10 after improving their rank in his last 11 races, whilst Martin Petermann & Adam Pinczes go the other way having not raced since event launch.

    However, its the top 30 who get invited back so be sure to put that ranking on the line! It's also essential for those who have dropped out the top 30 to claw their way back in, like, Hector Garcia, Miso Stubna, Thomas Jansen, Reto Kropf & Dionysis Faraos!

    Just encouraging you to hit them ranked servers, no offence intended ;)

    Congrats to Jose on becoming the #1 driver on the ranked servers!

    The top 30 is where it's at though. You've got just over a week to improve, or secure, your ranking to be eligible for the Ranked MP Invitational!

    Congrats to Franz Christian Andreas who was the #1 ranked driver in RaceRoom at 09h GMT today!

    Invites will be sent out to the top 30 this evening, so keep an eye on your inboxes so not to miss it.

    Finished just outside the top 30? If there are drivers who can't attend next Tuesday's showdown, subsequent drivers will be invited to the event.
