    We are very happy to reignite the ADAC GT Masters spirit in RaceRoom!

    The Porsche 911 GT3 R, Mercedes AMG GT3, Audi R8 LMS, BMW M6 GT3 and the Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R have arrived in the original liveries of the ADAC GT Masters 2018 season.

    No matter if you want to repeat the title run of Precote Herberth Motorsport, drive the popular Porsche of IronForce by RING POLICE, beat the times of our test driver Philip Ellis in his own car or try to make it through the first turn in Hockenheim in Maxi Götz‘ Mercedes AMG GT3 – you can experience an unforgettable season of the ADAC GT Masters now in RaceRoom.


    In addition to the car pack, we are bringing Most Autodrom to the already vast selection of tracks available in RaceRoom. This 4.2 km long circuit located in the northwest of the Czech Republic was built in 1983 and has since then regularly hosted many motorcycle, truck and car racing events. In 2018 it became part of the ADAC GT Masters calendar, proving to be an excellent motorsport venue and a real challenge for the drivers, with its high speed sections nicely embedded in the environment and a distinct lack of artificial run-off areas.

    Check out Jardier's stream from last night where he took an early look at the new content. Most Autodrom is Jardier's local track and he has fond memories since this is where he achieved a victory in real racing some time ago.

    I disagree, GT3 has got enough attention so far and (see my post) there are still a lot of cars 'n series to be "overhauled" first....

    The main focus of this patch was the ADAC GT stuff, but don't worry, other classes are still in the progress of reworks. ;)

    Porsche Cayman CS + Porsche Cayman CS MR : Smoothed the drivetrain

    I really hate to complain again but the drivetrain still doesn´t work properly. Porsche´s dual-clutch-transmission works smooth and doesn´t cause sudden wheelspin. There is something fundamentally broken with the transmission , before introducing the Gtr 4 class the Cayman CS didn´t have this issue. How about switching back to the old transmission model for both Caymans?
    Nevertheless , Most and GT Masters are great, have a nice day!

    It's already been stated that GT3 cars are getting new physics soon, they are very popular, it makes sense for them to be on the "best" physics

    Nice work as always, guys! I know I'm off topic with this and don't want to sound rude... but give us what many of us expect. Licenses and ratings, racing series, you know, the whole shebang!!!

    I'd rather see the forgotten yet awesome classes brought up to standard.
    When gt1 class got a refurb it was like getting new content. I rarely jump in to dtm92 or touring classics just on the basis of the old physics. Gt1 was the same until it got a refurb.
    I understand that gt3 is the biggest moneymaker in the game i just find them a tad boring compared to the old beasts ;)
    Hope to see that some day.
    Anyways great job guys. I'll buy all the stuff as soon i get home. Keep up the good work, nice to see devs focusing on the core aspects of a sim and still pumping new content out.

    What does ADAC GT Masters include? New skins, nothing more. Or is there something else?
