What is World Series Racing?
Its all about the love of racing !
World Series Racing is a sim racing community established in 2011 by a number of members previously competing in Us based league which over time changed to something we no longer wished to be part of. Looking around we felt the community was lacking a group which used quality simulation software but did not require high levels of time and practice to hone the set-ups in order to enjoy events or be competitive. We also felt a community based sim racing experience was essential, a place for people to come race and stay, not swap between leagues. As result we started World Series racing.
We consider ourselves a semi-pro community, and by that we mean we do not aspire to be or compete with top level pro leagues which go against our philosophy’s we aspire to. However at the same time we are not a console public forum or group lacking in respect for others or possessing a win at all cost attitude. We have members that are very fast who could compete at pro level, but don’t want the hassle and commitment of team based pro competition and members just starting out in quality sim racing. We welcome all, the common factors are respect and love of good clean fun sim racing.
We are formed of a wide global membership base but with a strong core in UK and Europe. We welcome all ages but with most of our management team being in the community a while and with family, we do seek to cater for those with little free time 🙂 WSR has run structured championships as part over our history from GT, Endurance to touring car, In 2012 we started our first BTCC based series which was hugely popular and has remained our core series since. In 2015 we moved to rFactor 2 and established a community modding team focused on bringing BTCC content.
Our key philosophy’s are core to our community structure and are as follows
- Emphasis and great racing and taking part, not winning at any cost
- Provide a friendly and fair on-line racing environment.
- Regular structured championships and events
- Encourage open and supportive member interaction, coaching, set-up help etc
- Strong race steward report and enforcement
- Accessible mods that are fun, easy to drive but still a test to be the fastest
