The Dragon Racing-World Cup was a Spyro tournament hosted by Ratchet5 which started in July 2018 and finished in November 2018.

History

Soon after the conclusion of RIP: Resurrected people began to speculate on when and what the next tournament will be. The most popular guess was Spyro the Dragon, another PlayStation classic.

On August 10th, 2017 Ratchet5 confirmed that a Spyro-themed tournament would happen and it would start sometime between October and December of 2017. However, Ratchet5 decided to delay the tournament due to business in his personal life.

On December 18th, 2017 Ratchet5 announced that info on the tournament would soon come.

On March 5th, 2018 Ratchet5 confirmed, once again, that it would be a Spyro-themed tournament. He also announced that the tournament should be beginning soon and 3 days later confirmed that the tournament would start some time between May and June.

On April 2nd, 2018, after the announcement of a non-RIPTO Spyro tournament, ISGP, by IAS8 hosts Nintendogen64 & CrystalFissure, Ratchet5 delayed the tournament and stated if a tournament run by him would happen, it would most likely begin after the conclusion of that one. He also stated that it would be a "everyman allowed" tournament.

On May 15th, 2018 Ratchet5 announced that the tournament will start mid-July and that a trailer would be released in the near future.

On June 21st, 2018 Ratchet5 released the trailer and gave the tournament its name in the process: the Dragon Racing-World Cup. Also on July 21st Ratchet5 unveiled the trophy that the winner of the tournament will receive (virtually). He also announced that sign-ups will open on July 1st, 2018 and the tournament shall start in the second week of July.
