    Since WFG Campaign was successful and brought many people from different sims, including me from AC a lot will be wandering around where to drive.

    I found out already that FSR - Formula Sim Racing is the most competitive of them all, but since they are running F1 Official Calendar there aren't much races left till the end of the season.

    Which are the other options? Are leagues here just pop up, collect competitive drivers and finish or there are serious leagues running constantly serious racing?

    I think this will be valuable to other new rF2 sim-racer, besides me.

    There are the guys at simracing.club, but they are probably full too, but you should give it a try. IRG World, XtremeRPM, United Racers League will start a GT3 league soon on a thursday if I remember right
    And many others I don't know

    Timezone Europe. Language English. Most competitive as possible.

    I'm not going to promote my community because we are mostly italians, instead i suggest you to take a look at RaceDepartment.
    I joined them few weeks ago and i've found nice and fast people, club races are very competitive. Tomorrow i'll take part in the new championship with F. Renault 3.5, i'm sure it will be very competitive.

    I had tried RD in AC and the field was far from very competitive. It was nice and organized, but not what i am looking for. In the WFG challenge i was around 2 tents from the fastest times so mostly im looking the next option after FSR. Is it only simracing.club?

    2 tents but from who? The leader, the top 10, top 50, top 100 or? Never tried AC, but trust me in RD (rf2 & ams), there are some of the fastest driver. Take a look at some results of the RD Le Mans Series and compare your laps.

    Mostly of the top 20 drivers in the Time Trial Challenge (AMS) are actually racing in RD.

    From the 3rd round 2 tents from the leader. I took me some time to adapt to rF.

    I'll check their times and do some testing then.

    So it comes down to iRacing or FSR?

    iRacing pricing politics really annoys me and I really liked how rF2 handles the cars. But seems I have to go there....

    Well, rF2 will bring a competition system that looks like will have skill based rating too (similar to iRacing) so maybe you'll find it in near future. Let's see how it goes and how much people stick to the game in next months

    Statistics show that estremely talented pilots are just a little percentage of the whole sample. You will never find a place where they are all condensated in a single league.. unless you start to pay them to partecipate in a particular championship.

    ..But, if you join a well populated league, and your deeds will be on par with your words, I bet in a little time good drivers will join to compete against you or to learn from you. Sometimes it's not about what leagues can do for you... but what you can do in a league. :D
