    Nürburgring Nordschleife released!

    Now you get to drive and race on the most iconic track in the world, and to experience the challenge of the "Green Hell" as the track is famously known.

    It has been our first track built using laserscan data which has helped us a lot in the development process. Additional data was kindly provided by our closely affiliated partners at KW Suspensions. The result is a highly accurate driving surface, including all the elevations, cambers and bumps matching the real track to the highest degree possible.

    Included in the Release are the following Track Layouts, each of them featuring its own characteristics: Nordschleife, Nordschleife Tourist, Nordschleife VLNand Nordschleife 24h

    Enough said, the Nordschleife awaits you! Start your engines and enjoy the longest rollercoaster ride on the planet.

    FIA WTCC 2015 released!
    Now available in the store, the WTCC 2015 CAR pack contains all the cars that fought for domination in the World TouringCar Championship. From the all new Lada Vesta to the Honda Civic, the Chevrolet RML Cruze and the dominant Citroen C Elysee which remained the car to beat of the 2015 campaign.

    You get all the racing teams and all liveries, including the special Sabine Schmitz design.
    The cars shine on both tight city tracks and on the mighty Nordschleife, we hope you'll enjoy them for a long time to come.

    Audi Sport R18 TDI Ultra released!
    The Audi R18 hardly needs any introduction, you have seen it power through day and night to win the Le Mans 24 Hours time and time again. Behind the myth it is a high-tech endurance racer powered by Audi's famed TDI turbocharged diesel engine, and of course it is a near perfectly handling piece of precision engineering.

    Together with its competitors in the P1 Class it is the quickest car currently available in RaceRoom!

    Check out this cool gameplay video to see the new Audi in glorious action, and then of course head on over to the shop for a free test-drive and perhaps a purchase?

    As we have already mentioned here and there, all the GT3-Specs cars have received a physics update, bringing them to the latest quality standard.

    Thanks to the precious help of KW Suspensions, we were able to completely rebuild our suspension model for all our "GT3-specs" cars.

    As soon as @Karsten Borchers got his hands on great damper shock dyno charts, there was no stopping him.... read on for the rest of this story

    With the upcoming patch we are starting to introduce bigger grids, allowing up to 99 opponents on some tracks!

    Read more about this on the forum, and of course also check out this video showing what it looks and sounds like when a huge grid comes thundering past you on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

    We are rolling out this feature in steps on our servers, so it may take some time before we hit the 99 car limit in any race.

    This update should hit the sweet spot with many virtual drivers. You can now finally save & load setups, this means you can also share them with friends.

    We created a new section on the Sector3 forums for sharing and downloading the setup files. Head on over to the forum and get busy getting even more competitive on the tracks.

    Yeah, a bit maybe combined with a certain lack of time. Even Champions (like Bruno Spengler who actually is quiet active with RRE) have to fight hard to compete with the best LB specialists.
    No one knows what a real online racing competition might reveal....:eek:
