So this is version 3.0 of the WipEout Timeline Redux, also known as the 2048 Timeline Redux, due to the fact that despite being a franchise reboot, 2048 still seems to stick to the established timeline (although not mechanics and aesthetics).

This timeline also tries to explain when Fury takes place.

Anyway, this is a complete rewrite, now including dates ^_^. This time, the timeline will be created in chunks, as I aim to add far more detail in than the previous version.

Apparently my idea of "soon" is similar to Valve's. Sorry about the stupidly long wait between the A.G.R.C. & F3600 sections.

Pre-A.G.R.C (2004 - 2047)

2004 - (January 17th) - Pierre Belmondo is born in France.

2012 - Kel Solaar is born in Russia.

2014 - John Dekka is born in the USA.

2015 - The European Union transforms into the European Federation.

2016 - Paul Jackson is born in Britain.

2017 - The Foundation for European Anti-Gravity Research (FEAGR) is created.

2021 - Belmondo drops out of university to join FEAGR full time.

2022 - FEAGR joins the World Anti-Gravity Research Congress (WAGRC), funded by the World Technology Symposium (WTS).

2023 - Daniel Chang is born in China.

2024 - Belmondo is named Director of FEAGR.

- The WTS discontinues the WAGRC, forcing FEAGR to operate on a smaller budget. Belmondo continues his research regardless.

2025 - The United States of America standardises its state legislature: As a result, each state is renamed to (Prefix) State. The state of New York is renamed to Nova State, and New York City renamed to Nova State City.

2027 - The Statue of Liberty collapses, after the structure buckles after years of abuse from the wind and waves. Nova State officals announce that a new stature will be built to replace it.

2028 - Belmondo discovers how to manipulate AG fields, and begins work on a prototype AG craft.

2030 - Sofia De La Rente is born in France.

- Arial and Arian Tetsuo are born in Japan.

2035 - The Angel in Flight is constructed, to fill the space left by the Statue of Liberty.

- (April 14th) - Belmondo completes the first successful flight of an AG craft in the Nevada Desert.

2036 - After the demonstration of a successful AG flight, the European Federation funds the creation of the Federal European Industrial Science and Research (FEISAR).

2040 - Anti-Gravity Systems, the commercial arm of FEAGR, is founded, with Belmondo being named Director.

2042 - FEAGR folds. AG-Systems are bought out by a Japanese consortium, leaving FEISAR as Europe's main AG research and development organisation.

2044 - Brazilian companies Hana and Pir merge to form Pir-Hana, and focus on AG research and development.

- Pir-Hana sponsors the creation of the Anti-Gravity Federation (AGF).

- The AGF is convinced by Belmondo to create the Anti-Gravity Race Commision (ARC). ARC is founded with datacast celebrity Dirk Breakwater as chief executive.

2045 - After a series of public disputes between Holst McQueen and Delia Flaubert over the future of AG-Systems, Belmondo is forced to dismiss both from the company.

- McQueen approaches Qirex Industries, and convinces them to create an AG racing team.

2046 - In response to the creation of Qirex, Flaubert founds Auricom Research Industries.

2047 - The ARC invites various organisations to participate in the upcoming Anti-Gravity Racing Championships (A.G.R.C.). Auricom, AG-Systems, FEISAR, Qirex, and Pir-Hana accept the invitation.

- Nova State City officials approach the ARC and offers to host an anti-gravity racing league. The ARC Gladly accepts the invitation.

A.G.R.C (2048 - 2050)

2048 - FEISAR completes work on their prototype craft, and begins pre-season testing on the Empire Climb circuit.

- The inaugural A.G.R.C. season commences in Nova State City, with the Queen's Mall, Empire Climb, Metro Park, Unity Square and Capital Reach circuits in race rotation.

- AG-Systems wins the 2048 season of the A.G.R.C.

- Pir-Hana completes work on their prototype craft, and begins pre-season testing on the Sol circuit.

2049 - The 2049 season of the A.G.R.C commences, with the Rockway Stadium, Downtown, Subway, Unity Square, Metro Park and Queen's Mall circuits in race rotation.

- B Class events are added to the season timetable.

- Qirex wins the 2049 season of the A.G.R.C.

2050 - Auricom completes work on their prototype craft, and begins pre-season testing on the Downtown circuit.

- Qirex completes work on their prototype craft, and begins pre-season testing on the Empire Climb circuit.

- AG-Systems completes work on their prototype craft, and begins pre-season testing on the Rockway Stadium circuit.

- The final season of the A.G.R.C. commences, with the Altima, Sol, Downtown, Subway, Empire Climb, Rockway Stadium, Queen's Mall, and Capital Reach circuits in race rotation.

- A class events are added to race rotation.

- Rumours circulate that Pir-Hana may withdraw from Anti-Gravity racing, after a Chinese business conglomerate expresses interest in purchasing the company.

- Health & Safety officials raise concerns over the reliability of the Mag-Lock technology used in some of the race circuits.

- Pir-Hana wins the 2050 season of the A.G.R.C. This marks the end of the A.G.R.C.

Post-A.G.R.C. (2051 - 2052)

2051 - Belmondo calls for the standardization of anti-gravity racing, and quickly gains support from the ARC due to the spectacular cost of replacing destroyed craft.

- The ARC officially reveals the F3600 Anti-Gravity Racing League. This league will be far less violent than the A.G.R.C., but will be much faster to compensate.

- (November 21st) - Altima finishes reconstruction to be compatible with the upcoming F3600 league.

2052 - All tracks that are to be included in the F3600 have finished construction.

- Pir-Hana are bought out by a Chinese business conglomerate, and cease work on developing AG craft. They instead begin work on developing brake technology to sell to the other teams.

F3600 (2052 - 2080)

2052 - The inaugural F3600 season commences, with the Altima, Karbonis, Terramax, Korodera, Arridos & Silverstream circuits in race rotation.

Looks very interesting, though why have you got (at least I think you got) gaps of several years between leagues? One would think they would organise a new formula while the old one continues.

The formulae for newer leagues is developed during the current one, and then announced to the public at the conclusion of the current league :)
