“What a month of exciting virtual r/c racing lies ahead of us. Six major events on 3 exciting tracks. Yes just 3 tracks because this year we have combined classes to race on the same track, just like what happens at real events. Last year, 2654 racers participated in the various classes including some really big names for the real r/c racing scene, like: Ronnefalk, Joor, Wollanka, Craig, Gillespie, Lutz. This year we are looking to more than double this number with the addition of the Spec classes, making the 2014 VRC Worlds by far the biggest r/c happening in the World! Don’t be surprised to see more big names appearing in the 2014 VRC Worlds… Many have been invited!
