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.
