The Sim Grid has just released the ability for communities to host rFactor 2 events on their platform. There’s no better way than to kick off the first OTL rFactor 2 event by running a three race British Formula 3 mini championship all run in an evening.

All the content is free and only the base game is required. We will be using the British Formula 3 cars used in the 2020 season. We will be visiting some iconic tracks such as the new banked Zandvoort 2021 circuit and the fast flowing track of Lime Rock.

Please note that this race is on a Saturday.

Everyone is welcome regardless of participating in an evaluation race, one-off or championship, however full OTL rules are in effect and the racing is still expected to be clean.

We hope to see new people racing with us, as well as many regulars. To get involved please join the OTL discord at https://otlracing.com/discord. The signups are limited to 30 drivers.

There is no live stewarding for this series however after the race you can report an incident with our form which can be found in our discord.


Please make sure to read our OTL rules as well as the series specific rules below. The OTL rules can be found here https://otlracing.com/rules/.


Setups will be fixed with basic changes allowed to tyre compound, tyre pressures, brake bias, fuel, brake pressure and steering lock.


We will be using live weather from each circuit and the track state will start off being medium usage.


It is important to notify us if you cannot attend. If you cannot attend a race you can simply click the “WITHDRAW” button in the races page of the championship on The Sim Grid website under the admin tab of the specific round. If you don’t attend a race without withdrawing you will receive penalty points that carry over in to other championships and can potentially get you DSQ from the championship.
