    In this "hefty" update can i expect to be able to adjust the seat/camera tilt/pitch up and down on my triple screens after the update? There is quite a bit of content i've not bought because i cant get the seat position correct , i will buy all if this gets updated ;)

    It's racing in SRO America already with a decent grid expected in 2021. Porsche, Audi, KTM, and Lamborghini are building cars

    you know - I started to flow. This is not a car - this is more. I am simply bursting from the inside with how fantastic it is, elegant, luxurious.

    Although I am looking forward to this new arrival, S3 is there any chance that at least some of your Christmas cheer will be spent filling out existing classes, a few are served by limited variety, like 2, as this one now is, to be honest I presumed the GT2 part of the Porsche was just another weird way of naming their models, as seems to be par for the course in regards to Porsche's naming criteria, not another GT2 class, as I swear we already had one of those, o_O do we not. o_O
    Perhaps S3 could give us a run down on what is to be expected in the new year or is this a secret?
    Fancy a bit of GT3's stealth development is rubbing off on S3 but then, all this could be common knowledge on Discord, who knows?

    GT2 has a revival with the Porsche and Audi. The class is almost "brandnew" IRL and features low downforce, high performance super(race)cars. It's like Cup/Club Cars on steroids and made fit for amateurs.

    The old GT(R)2 developed into the GTE class and was practically dead after that.

    Jesus Christ is 26 letters and an infinite amount of numbers not enough? For the love of sanity, why the bloody hell can they not think of another name, what is soooo special about Grand Tourer, not exactly a racy name in the first place. :rolleyes:
    Anyway, that was only an after thought, more interested in knowing where S3 are taking us in the future, especially regarding the filling out of classes/series. If I heard correctly, there are only 4 cars in this series and one of those is a Lambo, so I'm feeling a max of 3, Hmm yet another thin on variety series, just what RR needs, not!
    So come on @J-F Chardon don't be shy, throw us a bone, please!

    Why exactly do you bother with this content release, if you don't care about the several numbers and 26 letters?
    Move on and enjoy something, you are more interested in.^^
    Group 5 has excellent variety and entirely different cars, for example, so it might be more to your liking.

    As far as I understand, Lambo and Ferrari is a whole problem with the license.

    It's the most loyal Porsche/Audi, right?
