Its 2018, and that means the countdown has started to the 2018 V8 Super Car Online Premier Series, V8SCOPS.

There are a number of new challenges to be faced by all competitors for 2018 and over the coming weeks, piece by piece, we will be unveiling whats new for 2018.

 

The 2018 V8SCOPS series is proud to announce that Virtual Racing School, VRS, will be the naming rights sponsor for 2018.

Many of you will already be familiar with VRS, but for those that aren’t, this is a great tool to improve your sim racing, developed specifically for iRacing. From the most basic elements, to in depth telemetry analysis, to personalised coaching, VRS has it all and offers something for everyone wanting to be a better sim racer. The system is professionally run and designed with many top line sim racers using it, and offering their skills and time via data pack, and even coaching clinics.

 

Within the V8SCOPS ranks, two time and current reigning champion, Jarrad Filsell, along with the 2016 champion, Madison Down, and top line competitor Jake Burton, all from the Trans Tasman Racing stable are ambassadors, and instructors for VRS right here in Australia, which truly is a wonderful endorsement of the talent we have, right in our own back yard.

There are thousands of young drivers racing go karts and in the lower formulas, all hoping to make careers as professional racers. At the other end of the spectrum, there are 22 drivers on the Formula One grid each year, and only one of them can become world champion.

Clearly, the odds are stacked against anyone becoming a professional driver in F1 or any of the other major racing series: IndyCar, NASCAR, DTM, etc. Learning the skills needed to compete at such a high level requires years of practice and the investment of hundreds of thousands of dollars. And even after all that, nothing is guaranteed

This paper explores that difficult path to the top, both the traditional route from karting through the various formulas, and a new option: simulator-based training and racing, which is quickly proving to be a viable—if still rare—route for young drivers. Advanced simulator technology is making racing more accessible, but even with the new technology, drivers still need support to make the most of it.

 

Virtual Racing School (VRS) was created to provide that support to the next generation of motorsport champions. From analyzing and interpreting telemetry to tracking performance and trends to developing personalized training plans, VRS is being developed to assist drivers from the moment they take their first laps on a simulator all the way through a successful on-track racing career.

CPR Kart Parts was established in 2005 when founder Paul Jones, after years of racing and battling with the high costs of karting, began offering kart parts to allow lower budget racers to be involved in the exciting sport of kart racing. Starting off with a small tin with $100 trading from the family garage, Paul painstakingly grew the business with a focus on honesty and integrity which now supplies thousands of karting enthusiasts around Australia with quality, comprehensively packaged, easy-to-fit components suitable for kart racing and recreational builds.

 

Today, CPR Kart Parts employs several staff and trades online-only from a 200m2 warehouse in Brisbane, packaging with care and shipping orders the same day as ordered (providing they are paid before the shipping cut-off time) destined for clients all around Australia.

 

CPR Kart Parts focus on 4-Stroke kart racing has been instrumental in developing the highest quality 4-stroke racing advice through many years supporting and working closely with family-focussed 4-Stroke kart racing clubs around Australia.

 

Our aim is help you drive faster, using our expertise in 4-stroke knowledge and our ultra-efficient distribution system to provide simple and fast access to our large range of kart components and ensure you receive the right parts, quickly.
