  • About Vintage Series edit
    The GPVWC Vintage Series was one of the latest additions to the league for 2016 before its cancellation just three rounds into the first season. It ran monthly on non-Career Ladder Tuesdays.

    The series had two primary aims; to provide a series for those who do not yet have the ability to upgrade to the rFactor 2 platform whilst also acting as a Historic series. As such, the cars in use were a challenge to drive and rookies to the league had difficulty adapting. Following a standard 15 minute qualifying session, the drivers took part in a race equivalent to roughly 50% the race distance of Superleague races.

    As the only series in 2016 to run rFactor, there was always a risk of low participation which turned out to be the case. With less than ten drivers attending Round 3 at Magny-Cours a decision was taken by the administration to bring a halt to the Vintage Series early as it had served its primary purpose of offering a series to those who could not race on rFactor 2.
