Season 6 of the rFactor 2 Competition System is officially underway

New daily online races and championships are now available in rFactor 2, and qualifying for the next Le Mans Virtual Cup race at Monza is open.

Season 6 of the rFactor 2 Competition System is officially live! Sim racers on the rFactor 2 platform can compete against each other in official races on the Competition System, a relatively new process added earlier this year.

Season 6 will again feature a choice of daily races and weekly championship series, and possibly the biggest draw of the season will be the chance to qualify for the upcoming Le Mans Virtual Cup event in Monza.

Here are the events currently listed in the rFactor 2 competition system. Happy race!
