    Im not so much into open wheeler, especial the newer Generation F1 is boring for me - but this series is really great!
    The Races are awesome, the courses they drive also..........
    But with an realistic view - the Indy Cars doesn´t have much Fans here.
    In Raceroom theres no Server or if there was one - population with this Cars.
    I would like these 2018 gen. Car, but i don´t think this became popular here in Raceroom.

    Sure they look good, but we have the Formula US.. And i've never seen a server for them..

    There's not really a point to make a new generation car that's so similair to a current pretty niche car; from a business perspective I don't think it'd make that much sense. There's currently not a completed enough tracklist for US open wheelers (but we got Road America comin' yeehaw!)

    But, dangit, it does look gooood.

    Edit: The Formula US btw is a great car, I highly suggest more people drive it in multiplayer.

    great, but a good reworking of p1/p2 and a GrC imho are more important.

    why we don't have grC? :eek:

    I can agree with the P1 and P2! Those classes are so much fun, and with Multiclass somewhere at some point I think we're gonna see them a lot more.

    Edit-galore: I forgot to add: P1 cockpits are amazing in VR. The claustrophobia is insane. Such a small cockpit!

    The guys saying "No thanks" are probably the same who scream for new GT3 cars at the same time. :D

    I voted "no thanks" indeed, as I am not interested in open wheelers (except for classic ones maybe) and prefer tin-tops (not just GT3).

    Don't get why someone disliked that, as this poll is literally asking for opinions :p

    I'm curious what you would want to see though? What kind of car(s) next?

    I'd rather a focus on more popular content, which is touring cars and GT cars.

    What i'd really like to see, would be 1994-2000 BTCC Super Tourers.

    I was astonished by the dislike as well - coming out of the cover in such a poll, I expected several disagrees, but no personal dislike, but ok...

    What cars next - I am hoping for the (W)TCR series, a mid 90s DTM with Alfa and Opel, the long hinted GT4, or even a small cup car like the Mini (these underpowered things make for some really close and great racing).
    Yesterday I drove in AMS with the retro Brazilian Touring cars, looked like a 70s Scirocco, and I had more fun sliding with these things around a tight airfield track, than I ever had darting around a modern track in the FR-US (or FR-X).

    When it comes to ultra fast cars, rather than a second FR-US with just some slighty different plastic spoilers (exaggerated of course), I would rather dream of a Group C based around the famous Porsche 956/962.
    Others love their ovals and Indycar open wheelers, I like this stuff :)

    Yeah I agree with those cars. They're all fun looking!

    Could not agree more! I love the NSU TTS for that reason. Too bad I suck at driving it in VR.. So I tend to go for the Cayman nowadays.

    I really hope that the Cayman skinpack gets released soon, so it can be raced properly :)

    Voted yes, that car is such a step in the right direction when other open wheel racing series just seem determined to create a worse version of sportscar racing.

    ... nice surprise guys! 59,6 % IndyCar fans (lovers and likers ;)) here ... :cool:

    The old aerokits of the Dallara DW12 were not very popular ... too much wings and too much "UFO like" look ... that's why I think the "FR US Cup" car is not the best-selling product in the R3E store, but I believe that a new "FR US Cup 18" car version, based on the new IndyCar "Universal Aero Kit", could change this. But some more US-tracks are necessary for a bigger IndyCar line-up in R3E, of course.

    Speaking for myself, I can neglect this. I bought the FR-US out of curiosity and as somebody who is not really interested in US racing, I must say I don't see much difference between the two cars. Both are full of plastic and look like wannabe F1 to me. I would not buy a second FR-US 18 car and I doubt that only slightly better looks will make it more attractive for MP servers.
    More US tracks? Count me in. A new (fake) Indycar? Make it a puristic car from the 90s and you could count me in as well ;)
