World Championships Overview
Each World Championship is made up of a 5 challenges which are based around a single car, a single track, or a combination of multiple cars and tracks. Community Race Preferences along with voting are used to determine race format, supported aids, server settings and influence cars and track selections.

World Championships run 24/7 on the RACE@RFC server in 2 week cycles - refer to the Event Calendar for further information.

Joining races is easy! Click on the 'Join Server' links on the main RACE@RFC page, or look for the 'RACE@RFACTORCENTRAL' listing rFactor's list of current games (sometimes it's a little buggy and may need a refresh or re-sort) . If you're not sure how to join rFactor races refer to the FAQs.

World Championship Leaderboard & Rank - It's about total race time!
Each driver's best race times in championship events are combined on the leaderboard, resulting in a total time and rank for each championship.

It's up to you how you participate, race to race. Because each championship runs 24/7 for two weeks there is ample time to improve!
