    Okay, so Reiza released their September dev update and laid out some hints about upcoming content, so let's all chime in with what we think it might be! I'm not part of the backer program, so if you guys all know already, let us know if you're allowed, or at least let us have our fun! I've not kept up with all the development news, so if I missed something, let me know.

    Here's what Reiza said:
    October
    Brit Pack

    November:
    Legendary Tracks Part 1: Imola (1972, 1988, 2001, 2016 versions)
    New Series – TBA (hint: big and heavy)

    December:

    New series – TBA (hint: Classic content)

    January 2017:
    Legendary Tracks Part 2 – TBA (hint: it´s got a long historical variant)

    February 2017:

    Car pack from a major manufacturer – TBA (hint: it´s awesome)

    March 2017:
    Legendary Tracks Part 3 – TBA (hint: not a permanent road course)
    Aussie Racing Car

    --

    So, what do you think we're getting? My guesses, based on snippets I've read here and there over the months are:

    November could be the Formula Trucks making their way into the game
    December could be Divisao 3
    January: I've heard Hockenheim is coming along, so I guess this is it.
    March: Not a permanent road course... Le Mans? Monaco?

    I've also seen elsewhere mention that we might be getting a Group B Rally Car, a Pike's Peak type hillclimb, Autodromo Internacional de Yahuarcocha from Ibarra Ecuador.

    So, let the speculation begin...

  2. Not sure about Hockenheim, but i guess, that's what it is, since it's what was announced.
    Hockenheim with its 6.8km pre 2001 circuit is not really a ''long historical variant'', though.
    It's only 2km longer than the current circuit. I don't know, maybe that's considered long.
    Would expect something longer (10km+) personally.

    The 1st variant Hockenheim (32-37) is 10km+, but that wouldn't make sense, i guess.
    It also doesn't look like something worthy recreating or being fun to race.

    Wonder where the group B falls in. Maybe as a part of ''new manufacturer pack''.
    Also unsure about Yahuarcocha, maybe it was scrapped.
    The rest about aligns with what was announced before.

    Whatever the case, plenty of super content to look forward. :D

    Good points, but I am trying to think of what other long historical variants are there? Spa?

    I personally don't consider that a "new series" being as I've been playing it since 2013 but I am super excited about getting an updated version right there in AMS! I can't wait!

    There really needs to be a F*** Yeah button at RD just for Formula Truck posts. :)

    Nothing much to add to the previous speculation but looking forward to playing it all. The MCR, Caterhams and FFords from the Brit Pack are right in my wheelhouse so I'm sure I'll be driving those for years to come.

    My guesses so they're all probably wrong :)

    New Series – TBA (hint: big and heavy) - Formula Trucks
    New series – TBA (hint: Classic content) - NFI. This could be anything
    Legendary Tracks Part 2 – TBA (hint: it´s got a long historical variant) - Spa but Hockenheim does seem right
    Car pack from a major manufacturer – TBA (hint: it´s awesome) - Was thinking Porsche but that does seem out of Reiza's price range.
    Legendary Tracks Part 3 – TBA (hint: not a permanent road course) - Bathurst
    Aussie Racing Car - There was a reference to an aussie car series a few months ago. Forgot what its called. Guess it would be that one.

    Aussie Racing Cars is the name of an actual series;

    Well that makes sense :)
     
  11. The Ruff license might be going cheap now but hardly a "major manufacturer".

    The thing with the "legendary" tracks is I would expect more than one layout? Bathurst only has one, right? Le Mans, for example, could have historic versions too as it has changed bit by bit over the years. It could be one layout, sure, but that would be a little disappointing for a track with a "legendary" moniker

    Cadwell Park will actually seem wide driving these things around.

    I was thinking/hoping Ginetta but also not a major manufacturer.

    Another thought; I know it is probably a very very long shot, but I'd love the car pack to be Ginetta. Imagine a Ginetta GT4, GT3 and the LMP2 as a car pack. Drool...

    Ha-ha. They would fit so well having a good range of cars from Juniors through GT3 up to an LMP2 pace sportscar now. They are certainly a major racing car manufacturer so we can keep the hype going.
     
  18. Make a template for Formula Vintage first.;) Then the rest.

    We need to track back a few months to the original Area51 forum at RD, were the voting was done which picked the Boxer an VIR. There were so many suggestions on the table, Rezia said they would only pick one car one track at the time. But Reiza said they were blown away by the vast range of content the community wanted, hence the DLC packs coming down the line.

    Cars or shall we say trucks look like they are getting a refresh, DLC for sure.
    Back to the cars I'm sure Renato mentioned classic GT's and Rally. As for the manufacture, I can't see it being one of the major global brands but a small niche outfit like the Caterhams which they licensed.
    Our South American friends wanted another local series, The current Stock Car licence seems to have expired.

    @Nox I'm a backer if anything leaked an can be shared i will drop it in here :)

  20. New Series – TBA (hint: big and heavy) - Formula Trucks
    New series – TBA (hint: Classic content) - Divisao 3
    Legendary Tracks Part 2 – TBA (hint: it´s got a long historical variant) - Hockenheim
    Car pack from a major manufacturer – TBA (hint: it´s awesome) - probably groupB, so i'll project this into my wetest dream and say AUDI
    Legendary Tracks Part 3 – TBA (hint: not a permanent road course) - Pikes Peak
    Aussie Racing Car
