Tournaments

Tournament timeline up to 2023

There has been a big number of tournaments, special events and other forms of competition throughout the years. As soon as the Internet became common in most of the world, the concept of a Stunts online competition quickly spawned. Arguably the first recorded online tournament was Stunts Grand Prix, starting in August 1997. Since then, many others formed separately and gradually began to meet one another. ZakStunts has been the longest standing one and with its formation came the Stunts Forum and the stunts.hu domain some time after, which unified most of the efforts as regards online Stunts.

As of May 2023, four asynchronous competitions are running: ZakStunts, Race For Kicks, Custom Car Championship and Stunts No Time-Travel. In addition to them, live races are being held regularly and are pretty active.
