The Open Wheel Championship is the league's open wheel series. It is heavily orientated towards IndyCars series concept and thus mirrors the usual ICS championships and weekend schedules, which contains a 15 minute Qualifying, followed by one race over various length. As it's the pinnacle of IVRC open wheel racing it will be held every Sunday of a OWC meeting.

The series features the most technical competition of the IVRC, spanning over sixteen races through the whole year. Only the best will succeed in the Open Wheel Championship!

History

Open Wheel Championship (2020–present):

With the beginning of 2020, IVRC felt the demand for an open wheel series within the community and thus created the OWC. After originally planning to use the Dallara F3 2019 chassis for the series, which is also used at the IVRC F3 World Cup, the administration decided to run the OWC as inspired by the fastest possible single-manufacturer series instead.

Race weekend

On Sundays, drivers have a 15-minute qualifying session. The qualifying session decides the grid order for race one, run over various lenghts.
