We’re nearing the end of the year, which is a good time to start looking ahead at what the new year will bring, but also to look back and reflect on the current year. At the start of 2017 we were still building our team and roadmap, and I think it is fair to say that we did not anticipate all the interesting conversations, partnerships and opportunities that presented themselves in the months that followed. Even though, we knew when we started that there were a few key areas in rFactor 2 we had to address.

rFactor 2 - Studio 397
Today we proudly present the release of the GT3 Power Pack, featuring five iconic GT3 class cars. You already knew about the McLaren 650S GT3, and at the SimExpo we revealed the second car–the Bentley Continental GT3. Recently, we shared some teaser shots of the third car. As some of you already guessed, that was the Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R. The last two are the Radical RXC Turbo GT3 and the Mercedes AMG GT3. We’ve worked closely with the manufacturers to create the most accurate model, physics and sound we could; and we’ve listened to the community asking us to come up with a more consistent series of cars to race with. We certainly hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we do.
