    Also Totally amazed by that preview ;)
    The track is really nice to drive and should fit into R3E well, especially for the low powered side of the scale.

    Two questions, @Georg Ortner :
    1. Is the double pitlane (left and right) included in R3E?
    2. How many layouts? 5? :p
    Greetings

    Loving the fact that you guys keep giving us tracks which you don’t find in other sims. :)

    So do they hold races at this track or is it just pretty much used for testing?

    No sanctioned races, mostly trackday, but there are some 'races' that are started with a flying start

    Im fine with that. Makes for a good track choice when I just want to drive around and not actually compete with the AI.

    mostly in replays, free camera and different camera modes are used to record trailers etc, see those official ones for cars, tracks or tournaments
    this one, all replay :p free camera and camera attached to car



    Its a great way to spot additional details and appreciate tracks and devs work even more

    I still have not recollected all my single pieces again, since I exploded in overjoy.

    A highlight, in my book. Shut up and take my money, S3!

    I studied in Osnabrück, live in Münster, know the romantic places and beauty of the Osnabrücker and Tecklenburger Land - Teutoburger Wald rules! One of the most beautiful and most underrated areas in Germany. I have posted several very long bicycle tour cockpit videos from there at youtube. But I must admit - I did not know that Bilsterberg track was here in this region. :oops: Shame on me...:rolleyes:

    What a great choice! Thank you so much for offering us such an outstanding mix of tracks with completely different charactristics!
    I very much love those winding technical courses with lots of crests and dips. Such a great feeling when your car gets light over the top of a blind corner and you struggle with that last tiny bit of grip that's left!
    Only thing I'm concerned of is the question wich car to choose for my first laps... Maybe have to roll a dice to decide between formular junior, KTM, GT4, the 964 or the 934... :)

    Well this could be super interesting - always wondered what racing here would be like and now is my chance to find out.

    Judging it from that - withdrawn - AC mod, in parts its gliding, in parts ity flying, in parts its gently sliding, in parts its kind of falling. :D Its wonderful, one of the best driving experiences I can have in AC. I expect nothign else in RR. In AC it drives best in limousines and street cars like the M4, M3, in these being a balanced mix between being challenging and being, well, being "elegant", meaning the elegance of figure skaters. Very technical course.

    I grew up in Ibbenbüren and Tecklenburg and I also love the Teutoburger Forest area.
