Racing event will be available in game from 14:00 GMT on November 14th until 07:00 GMT on November 17th.

Map: Tropical island, Realistic mode. | Tier III aircraft are available.

The Training run is already completed! Pilots, we announce the start of racing competitions in the third rank of realistic mode. We took into account wishes of our players, and now results will be evaluated by a pilots best lap time. We introduce a new result system: a specially designed Elo rating system for races, which will help to pick the participants with approximately equal results on lap times before the race starts. This will make the race more interesting and more complex, because initially it will not be clear who are the favourites.


Attention! This is the first of four stages for "formula War Thunder”, which will take place at the weekends. Three of the best pilots from the first stage will receive 3000, 2000 and 1000 Golden Eagles, respectively.



The 100 best pilots based on lap time will receive the title of "top racer" (Awards will be credited after November 17th). We publish the results of the first stage and top-20 racers in War Thunder so that you can follow your position in overall ranking and compete for super-prizes!


Upon completion of the four stages, the best racers in War Thunder will receive:

1st  place - "Ultra" Advanced Pack:

2nd place - “Pacific" Advanced Pack:

  • Lockheed XP-38G “Lightning”
