Read below to learn how to play Virtual Thunder.
|What is Virtual Thunder?|
Virtual Thunder is an online racing game that is played against actual racing
events in several different racing series.
Before each scheduled qualifying and/or race event, players can make
predictions (picks) for the final outcome of
the qualifying and/or race finishing results. Players are scored based on how well
their predictions match the actual outcome.
The game flows along with the actual event. Players can make their qualifying
and race picks for any open events. Each series has their own way to determines the
starting order for the main event. Virtual Thunder defines qualifying as any activity
that has an outcome which is used to determine the starting positions for the main
feature or race.
Players can make their picks via the qualifying and race pick forms only and only picks
made before the designated close times will be valid.
Players make their picks by using the online pick pages. Teams are
chosen in the "Available Teams" section and placed into the designated groups/positions
available. Each series may have a varying amount of groups/positions and some series
may not follow qualifying at all.
Teams can only be placed in a single group/position.
Players must save their picks in order to participate in the event. This is done by
simply clicking on the Save Picks button located on the pick pages.
|Extra Pick Features|

Random - randomly fills all empty positions

Players are awarded points for how well their picks match the
actual event results. A player PLACES a team
if they correctly match the actual finishing position.

match the position. And a GROUPING BONUS
is awarded when multiple predictions (SHOWS and/or PLACES) occur in the same group.
