The GPVWC is delighted to announce the launch of a special event to commemorate the 2011 Season. A new event, held in partnership with Grand Prix Online (GPO) will be held on November 30th and December 7th and has been baptised the Race of Champions as it will feature the best talent in both leagues competing for the coveted title of Champion of Champions.


The invitational competition will include 32 drivers - 16 from the GPVWC and 16 from the GPO - organised in pairs. GPVWC will submit the top 8 drivers in the Superleague and the top 8 drivers in the Supercup, and the same will apply to GPO with their World Championship and Sprint Trophy series. To promote co-operation between the two organisations, the pairings will be formed by one driver for each of the leagues; in addition, to guarantee a fair and balanced competition, the pairs will be organised in inverted ranking orders, as follows:



1st Superleague / 8th Sprint Trophy
2nd Superleague / 7th Sprint Trophy
3rd Superleague / 6th Sprint Trophy
....
7th Supercup / 2nd World Championship
8th Supercup / 1st World Championship

The teams will be organised in a knock-out format, with the qualifiers taking place on November 30th and the final rounds on December 7th. All the competition will be broadcast live.
