Microsoft Flight Simulator Reno Air Race Series Presented by Tobii




Reno Air Race Series Presented By Tobii

Together with our friends at Tobii Gaming, we are pleased to announce the next phase in our Reno Air Race Series!

On Wednesday, June 29 we hosted an exhibition match featuring some of your favorite Twitch and YouTube content creators from the Microsoft Flight Simulator community. Now, it’s your turn to race for glory, bragging rights, and fabulous prizes!

Event Overview

In the preliminary round, forty-nine (49) lucky entrants will be selected at random to compete in seven (7) Unlimited Class races (one race per contestant). The first-place winner of each race will advance to the Grand Final.

In the final round, the seven pilots will complete one race of each of the four classes (Biplane, T-6, Unlimited, and Jet). Contestants will receive points based on their positional finish in each race:

  • 1st Place: 15 points
  • 2nd Place: 12 points
  • 3rd Place: 9 points
  • 4th Place: 6 points
  • 5th Place: 4 points
  • 6th Place: 2 points
  • 7th Place: 0 points

Whichever pilot has the most total points after the four races will be the Grand Champion! In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by the fastest total cumulative finish time across all four races combined.
