2018 Competition Results – Are you in the top-25,000?

Posted on January 27, 2019. Filed under: Contests, Stats, TypeRacer News |

Join to the TypeRacer Discord chat  where you can meet many of the best typists in the world!

The year 2018 has come to an end. Today we’re announcing winners of the 2018 Yearly competition.

Congrats to Belinda (wordracer888 – TRData), Michael (deroche1 – TRData), and Shoemaker (atthetopTRData) for taking the top-3 in both points and races completed. These guys completed around 50,000+ races each in 2018 alone!

Congrats to Henry (ghosthenryzhouTRData), Waleed (arxanasTRData), and Izzy (izzy5468TRData) for taking the top spots for averageWPM. These guys, among the fastest typists in the world, achieved an average speed of 200+ wpm on at least one of their accounts. (Note that premium racers can save practice or “ghost” races, giving them an advantage over free users and helping achieve these unbelievable speeds; additionally, Arxanas is a Steno typist).

The blog post below contains some highlights of the 2018 competition statistics, as well as a number of links to larger data sets. Us “normal” folks might not see ourselves in the blog post below, but check out the stats for your country to see where you stand!

If you did more than 110+ races or averaged more than 75+wpm during 2018, you should be able to find yourself as a top player in your country! Check out the links below.

Prizes will be announced soon.

Leaders in “points”, “avgWPM”, and “nRaces”. Click the picture to expand to the top-500 in each category (Google Sheets). The cutoff for inclusion in the top-500 is 224,000+ points, 130+ wpm average, or 3100+ races in 2018.


2018 Champions by Country – Points/Speed/# of Races

Veteran racers will know that the Pit Stop Competitions results page shows a maximum of the top-100, and on a site with millions of typists, even if you’re a talented and dedicated typist, chances are you didn’t make the cut.

To recognize more typists, and let people know how their 2018 performance stands, we crunched the numbers for three key categories, breaking the results down by country.

Note: Find your country by choosing the corresponding sheet at the bottom of each spreadsheet linked below. 

(1) points leaders by country – (speed * characters typed); (Google sheets – Click here to find yourself!)

(2) WPM leaders by country; (Google sheets – Click here to find yourself!) and;

(3) races completed leaders by country; (Google sheets – Click here to find yourself!)

The points category is broken down by country for TypeRacer’s top-35 countries (by points); averageWPM and nRaces are broken down by country for TypeRacer’s top-15 countries. If you’re from a smaller country, you’ll need to check the bottom of this post to see how to see the stats for your country.

The leaders from TypeRacer’s big-5 countries are below.

Top Countries by Points

On the topic of top countries, here are the top-25 countries by points (click the image to see top-100).



  • The results in this post have been generated based on a list of the top-50k racers by points. The raw data is linked below (Google Sheets) and stats enthusiasts can feel free to manipulate the data in whatever way they wish.
  • The files are quite large.

Raw data: (Note: These are large files not recommended for slower computers!)

Top-25k – Fastest WPM (15+ races)

Top-25k – Races Completed

Top-50k – Most Points

  • The top-WPM list has been manually reviewed to ensure the top-100 racers do not include anybody banned for cheating. Approximately 30 users were removed to achieve this. From #100 onwards, banned users will appear in the data.
  • The WPM and nRaces data is referred to as top-25k, but actually contains 50k rows, and data should be considered highly accurate only for the top-25k. This is because these lists were generated by using the top-50k racers by points, and sorting by WPM and nRaces.
  • For the same reason as above, some of the fastest racers on TR will be excluded from the WPM data entirely if they completed fewer than ~15 races during 2018.
  • If there were multiple countries associated with your account during 2018, only one is used for the data in this post.
  • If you live in a smaller country which isn’t included in any of the “by country” stat sets above, you can save any of the three spreadsheets above to your own Google Drive and add your country yourself. Go to the far right tab of any data sets and look for the “OTHER COUNTRY” tab. Edit cell B2 to include your lowercase two letter country code in the formula. Example for the nRacers champions in Switzerland (ch):

Replace this (from “OTHER COUNTRIES cell B2”)

=query(importrange(“1AwaDms1e0nbj3t-QqwLsDcctLMeAq4oZcE1MgeOsbLE”,“Sheet1!A2:K12000”), ” Select * where Col4 =’ENTER_COUNTRY_CODE_HERE‘ “,0)

With this:

=query(importrange(“1AwaDms1e0nbj3t-QqwLsDcctLMeAq4oZcE1MgeOsbLE”,“Sheet1!A2:K12000”), ” Select * where Col4 =’ch’,0)

This will return results based on the first 12000 lines of source data (a Google Sheets limitation), which may be enough for you. For smaller countries this may only be a few dozen results; to show more results you’ll need to scroll to the first empty row and copy the formula above, updating the source data to populate from the next 12,000 rows. In the above example, that would mean you paste the exact same formula into column B of the first empty line, but change Sheet1!A2:K12000 to Sheet1!A12001:K24000.
