"Races!" contest
Attention! This news was published on the old version of the website. There may be some problems with news display in specific browser versions.

Are your engines warmed up? Have you painted go-faster stripes on your plane and manned your pit crew with spare pilots?
Then let the countdown begin!


Dear players, we're launching a dual competition consisting of a video creation contest and a unique user-made camouflage contest! This time, you can show everyone you're worth without firing a single shot. All you have to do is create a dynamic video in the new Race mode or a unique racing camouflage for your favorite plane!  


Get your camera or graphics editor ready, get a team together or just work on a creation of your own, and show everyone what it means to race in style on War Thunder!  

From October 17th to November 20th 18:00 GMT


Contest goals:

Video contest: Race mode!

Create a fast-paced video based on gameplay from Race mode, available in Custom Battles. This can be a highlight reel of various flights or a successful run of a race course in competition with your friends.


The jury will give your video more points if the planes participating in the race have unique racing skins. And this is another opportunity to be counted among the winners.

Racing camouflage contest

A true race is a show; a beautiful vehicle harmoniously complements the roar of its powerful engine and creates a style for its pilot and his team.


Express your imagination and create a unique racing camouflage for your favorite plane. Use existing models as examples or just improvise! Distract your enemies so much with your outstanding style that they crash into cliffs!
