OP Development

The development of OP rigs and accessories has been moving forward consistently. In the upcoming weeks we are ramping up the dev, meaning that we are starting to release new products in a more frequent pace in August. 

The first product releases will be functional and aesthetical accessories improving the usability of the OP ecosystem. After the accessories has been released, we will finalize the design of a new rig aimed for the young sim racers. 

Dirt Rally 2.0 Club Racing - Month of R5 in July

Since we are huge fans of rally racing, we have been running the OverPower DR2.0 Club races for a while now. In July, we will race against each other with the nicely handling 4-wheel drive R5 cars which offers close racing through the four different rallies.

We run our DR2.0 Club in cross platform environment, meaning you can join the club and try to whoop Olli's butt using your PC, PlayStation or Xbox. The schedule of the R5 cup is:

  1. Baumholder, Germany (from 1st to 8th of July)
  2. Värmland, Sweden (from 8th to 15th of July)
