Racing fans, this is for you. During the WTCC 2012 season, people from around the globe will get the chance to test their skills as virtual drivers online as well as onsite at selected WTCC events. Throughout the season, a V-WTCC roadshow using a 400m2 gamepark will be visiting selected events of the WTCC championship.
The Virtual Championship covers the complete WTCC season calendar. The gamers visiting one or more of the WTCC events will be able to compete in high quality racing simulators. The gamers not visiting a real WTCC event can simply compete from their home PC still having the chance of winning the Virtual WTCC Championship.
The competition is a point based Hotlap contest. All points scored in online and onsite events go in to the championship scoreboard where a winner is announced at the end of the season.
Onsite points are worth twice as much as points scored in the online events, so it will really pay off to participate in the actual WTCC events that will be visited by the gamepark.
As the headline suggests, the V-WTCC 2012 is not only a roadshow and a championship. It is also a free PC game featuring the WTCC 2012 cars and circuits.
The game is developed by SimBin Studios AB and will be released in steps via RaceRoom as the WTCC season unfolds.
The first game package covering 1/3 of the season will be released in April, around the same time as the online competitions are started.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
