Virtual RC Pro: Serious r/c racing sim for tech heads and car fanatics, by Virtual Racing Industries from the Netherlands.


Heemstede, the Netherlands - April 23rd, 2012– VRC Pro is a serious r/c racing simulation of radio controlled car racing for PC. The sim features real r/c cars that can be built and tuned to your own liking. A wide choice of world renowned r/c tracks is available to race on. VRC Pro offers 4 on-road classes, 1:10 and 1:12 scale electric cars, and 1:8 and 1:10 scale nitro powered cars. Later this year VRC Pro will be expanded with several off-road classes like short course trucks and buggies, plus a number of exciting off-road tracks.

To measure yourself with other racers and gamers you can do time-trials in all classes on all tracks. VRC Pro organizes on-line championship series and events. VRC Pro features Internet multiplayer racing with qualify and race modes, 10 cars per session.

At the heart of VRC Pro is the physics engine which has been worked on for over 11 year to make the cars behave exactly like their counterparts in the real world. This is particularly important for an r/c racing sim where you control your car from a remote position. The visual experience is essential to the‘feel’ the racer gets when controlling the car. The state-of-the-art graphics and graphics engine further contribute to the life-like experience. It’s no wonder that VRC Pro is endorsed by over 40 industry leading brands, raced by top racers and already registered for by almost 10.000 real racers. VRC Pro can be controlled with the same transmitter that is used to control his real r/c car in the weekend, using the VRC-3NT USB adaptor to interface between the transmitter and the PC.
