| Welcome to the Auto Vidya General Wiki
Originally started in October of 2012, /ovg/ was the result of Forza 4 threads dying due to the release of Forza Horizon, and /o/ needing a place to talk about automotive vidya. /ovg/ functions as a place to talk about automotive vidya without rules, regulations, or bias, as is the norm with most racing vidya forums.
What is /ovg/ racing now?
Most series only require that participants submit an entry on the Google Doc and read the relevant wiki page. Any additional requirements are noted on the series wiki pages.
Check OVG Racing Series for full information on current, upcoming and past /ovg/ series.
The OP CopyPasta can be found here: OVG Thread copypasta.
