Closest ever finish in VWC

The final race of the 2018 Virtual World Championship saw Werner Pany crowned the champion after a thrilling race race win. The result then required a count back to see who would be the 2018 Virtual World Champion.

Nearly 1,000 pilots took part in the Fort Worth race, which was a replica of the real-life track the Master Class pilots flew. Austrian Werner Pany – the 2016 champion – took the win in fine style, with a run time of 45.2085s. His time was best by far, followed up by Ecuador's hbk23henry, who was only 0.078s behind his rival.

The result gave Werner Pany 62 points in total and put him level with Manuel F, who only finished third in Fort Worth. With both pilots on 62 points it went to a count back. Werner Pany and Manuel F had the same amount of race wins, but Pany had finished in second place more times than his rival and was deemed champion!
