by John | October 24, 2014

With our Progression Ladder now totalling seven stages and 21 cars, we’re inviting you to put them to work this weekend with a host of Prized Events featuring a selection of our discounted rides. Keep an eye on the Events page to see when your Progression Ladder car(s) are up!

 

Simraceway Progression Ladder Explained

 

The Progression Ladder is a tiered pricing system applied to a select group of popular cars. Exclusively containing cars that can be downloaded for less than Simraceway‘s lowest regular price band of 2,500 Credits/$2.50 Cash, its purpose is to make it quicker (through earning Credits from completing competitive laps in-game) and cheaper to build their car collections. The ladder contains a series of “stages” which each contain a selection of cars with prices between $0 and $2.50. To take advantage of these price reductions, all players need to do is take part in Events or Quick Races or add Cash to their accounts.

Simraceway Championships Explained

 

Simraceway Championships are tailored collections of Simraceway Events. Featuring Hot Laps, Challenges, or a combination of the two, they are designed to test racing skills across a variety of disciplines, cars, and tracks. While each round of a Championship operates as an individual contest with its own leaderboard, its drivers’ performances also contribute to a ‘Championship leaderboard’. Once all Events within a Championship have closed, drivers are ranked according to their cumulative performances across the qualifying Events.
