The TBO Challenge is a series utilizing the Turbo cars in Live for Speed. The event format aims to emulate touring car racing, offering drivers a sprint race, and a longer feature race.

Series History

The TBO Challenge was founded in 2009 by Chris "Wilko868" Wilkinson and Ben "jaws99" Grindle, when they were part of the International Motorsport Association. The series became a New Dimension Racing property in 2010, when Wilkinson joined NDR, and the brand has been kept since. It last ran a full season in 2010, but made an appearance as the NDR Holiday Special in 2017, as part of NDR's 10th Anniversary event.

In 2020 TBO Challenge returned for its third season consisting of six rounds, plus a post-season, non-championship endurance event. All six championship races, plus the endurance will be broadcast in full by Sim Broadcasts.
