The 2013 Championships are starting soon:
TORCS Endurance World Championship 2013
Simulated Car Racing
You can find the links as well in the menu on the left in the section “Racing Competitions”. I added as well a video and research section to make it easier to find content on the net.
For those of you who want to model cars or to create textures I created a series of tutorial videos, have a look here. Btw. part 5 is coming soon.
A last thing to mention is that Quinten Kock has created a TORCS community here. I recommend to use it for small talk, for discussing TORCS support and development, please stay with the mailing lists to avoid fragmentation.
