Local sim-racing organisation WPR (World Pro Racing) has opted to announce that it will be kicking off the first rFactor 2 championship for 2021, the WPR USF2000 Series. Here’s everything you need to know.

WPR USF2000 Series – What is it?

The USF2000 Series is a championship for all sim-racers that play on the rFactor 2 simulator. Local drivers such as Andrea Rizzo and Dean Vella are participating in this championship.

Registrations are still available as there are 3 slots still available at the time of writing. If you’re interested in taking part, head over to the WPR event page and insert the appropriate credentials on the application.

How will the points work?

The point system follows a placement procedure, and it will be distributed as follows:

  • 1st  – 18
  • 2nd – 15
  • 3rd – 13
  • 4th – 10
  • 5th – 9
  • 6th – 8
  • 7th – 7
  • 8th – 6
  • 9th – 5
  • 10th – 4
  • 11th – 3
  • 12th – 2
  • 13th – 1

In addition to this, points will also be given to the driver with the fastest lap (5 points), starting the race (1 point), consistency (5 points), lead max laps (5 points), as well as pole position (10 points). However, one thing to bear in mind, is that if there’s a no-show, points will be deducted by 10.
