The dishevelled 2020 F1 season has finally got underway and as we move towards the British rounds, what better way to rejoice than present the RaceRoom GP Silverstone!
Taking centre stage could be no other than our pinnacle car, the FR X-17, with its screaming 950HP V10 engine. Marvel as the car comes alive through the corners of Copse, Maggots, Becketts, Stowe & Abbey and leaves an overwhelming feeling of astonishment as the car continues to grip the faster you go!
Supporting the FR X-17 will be the ‘tame by comparison’, FR 3 cars which give drivers that moment longer to react and where the margin for error isn’t so small. This high-performance car is no slouch though and pilots will be well rewarded for their precision and racecraft.
Do you have what it takes to be the quickest at the ‘Home of British Motor Racing’?
Then buckle up, we’re going racing!!
RaceRoom GP Silverstone will consist of 2 leaderboard (LB) competitions (FR X-17 & FR 3) which will run from 20/07/20 to 02/08/20, culminating in the main event which will be held on 7th August.
All LB entrants will be eligible for the main event which will be split over multiple divisions, depending on the number of entrants. Improve your LB time to increase your chance of being invited to a higher division race.
The Division 1 race of each class will be broadcast LIVE on our YouTube channel, with commentary!
All drivers who have valid accounts on game.raceroom.com are eligible to enter this competition.
Entry for this competition is 199 VRP, which entitles all entrants an invite to the main event on 07/08/20. We will open as many servers as necessary so that everyone can drive a race.
Drivers may enter 1, or both LB competitions.
Drivers may only participate in 1 class at the main event.
We will aim for a split of 30 drivers per division but the final number will be determined by total entries. Division 1 is confirmed at 30 drivers.
Drivers must own the required content to participate in the competition. `
