Hello @Community!

As some of you will be aware from previous hints, we have been beavering away in the background and are excited to finally announce some major changes regarding the future direction of RevolutionSimRacing:


To infinity and beyond
The longer-term members will already be aware of our roots, but as a refresher for all we formed our community primarily to provide a friendly home for racing in Project CARS, racing a variety of vehicles to move away from the "GT3 grind". Even before the release of Project CARS 2, some of our community had started to drift away and focus on some other sims and it wasn't long before we noticed a steady decline in sign-ups to our primary-focus league, the Revolution Cup. With the arrival of Ricardo and Noztra we injected some new life into our community by running leagues in Assetto Corsa but sadly, as we had seen with pCARS2, sign-ups soon dwindled. All this while, more and more members were taking part in endurance races in iRacing and rFactor2. You can see where this is going!


Out with the old, in with the new!
We are pleased to announce that from 2021 we will be focusing primarily on team-racing events in iRacing, rFactor2 and Assetto Corsa Competitzione. If interest is high enough, we will host our own ACC leagues and hopefully AMS2 (once it matures as a product, in the way ACC has since release) but it is unlikely that we will host further leagues for Project CARS 2 or Assetto Corsa - of course, if the interest in these sims returns then never say never. This paves the way for RSR Academy and Team RSR, giving RSR members a chance to drive for RSR in their favourite sim on a wider stage.


Do you have what it takes to be Team RSR?
The cream of our crop are what makes Team RSR, drivers who have shown exceptional ability in endurance racing, willingness to learn, to play their part as a team not just as a lone ranger. Experience and maybe just a little bit of skill are what elevate drivers to this tier, but it's not just skill, Team RSR drivers are also ambassadors for the RSR community, not only during races but everywhere you represent us and we expect our drivers to behave accordingly.

For those without that experience, but who want to advance their driving skills to the highest level, we have RSR Academy. Here is where you 'earn your stripes' and prove to us you have what it takes to move up the ranks.

For everybody else, we have RSR Community*. You're still part of the RSR family but maybe you just want to hang out with some old friends, race in a more casual environment and maybe just racing for yourself. You love us, we love you, that's why we want you to stay.

(*Please note: As a result of these changes, our resources section will only be accessible by members of Team RSR and RSR Academy. The resources section will play host to our car liveries (which are a pre-requisite of driving for Team RSR / RSR Academy) as well as setups for upcoming races.)

We are happy to announce our current roster for iRacing, rFactor2 and Assetto Corsa Competizione:

New clothes
We are also in the early stages of creating a brand new frontpage for our community and we also have an exciting new livery in the works, which all Team RSR drivers will race with. There is also a RSR Academy livery in the works. Keep your eyes peeled for both of these to appear in the future.

It's a bold move, we're sure you'll agree, but it is also a necessary move to ensure the survival of RSR, to continue the outstanding friendships we've all made here and to keep us enjoying the hobby we all love so much. Whether you stick around for fun or compete to be in Team RSR, we just hope you stay here and keep the RSR family as big and as healthy as possible for many years to come.


Your RSR Staff Team

great news but a question, when it comes to a enduranace races for Iracing and as a example myself jonno and 2 other teamRSR drivers want to team up, is that possible or do we have to race within the academy drivers? or can it still be mixed drivers of each.

Totally agree!

Team RSR (and Academy of course) have had some great success this year across all platforms - if we keep on the path we are on, I genuinely believe this community can become one of the best in the sim racing world through presence and performance (we have quite a few aliens now :blackalien:). Excited to be a part of it and for what the future holds.

When the frontpage comes together it would be good to see the return of the Hall of Fame as this community have brought back home a huge amount of great results. It would be a great way to highlight and display our achievements as a community to the outside world of sim racing.

A mix is of course possible. There is really only one restriction: As soon as 1 academy driver is in the driver line up, your team will be registered as 'RSR Academy Blue" for example.

But we definitely encourage that Academy and Team members driving together to pass knowledge for example :)

return of the Hall of Fame
Can confirm this to 110%. We got an updated sheet with all results which should be in the hall of fame. As soon as the new landing page is ready, we will transfer the data to it. Nothing gets lost ;)

Very interesting indeed. And understandable too. My last swing at endurance racing might have been a year and a half ago but it's noticeable that it really became the bread and butter of this community.
I might return to endurance sooner or later but I really need to step up my game beforehand. (And maybe get into reading telemetry too.)

As long as the smaller leagues in ACC stay so that community members can actually get to grips with longer stint lengths in their own time, I think this is the perfect recipe.

Will start looking into the backlog of race results and collect the ones relevant to update the Hall of Fame to show the impressive results of RSR then

Pretty sure @Jamesl91 and @Jakeyy did that already. But be my guest, we might have missed something :/

The RSR academy teams are there for those who want to gain experience and should they need time to get used to driving longer stints this is the place. 2-3hour stints are not uncommon in endurance racing so drivers will be able adjust to these lengths of driving and become more experienced racers.
Didn't know that Manu! But will check just to be sure
Yes we did, and will do so again at the end of the VEC season
