    As I was lucky enough to get an early glimpse of the new tracks coming soon to ARCA I have put together this short movie with some onboard action from Berlin, New Jersey and San Jose.

    Berlin
    Berlin will be very unique to ARCA sim racing, A short track that is nearly a circle! It does not have a back straightaway, turn two slips straight into turn three and with no outer wall around the back I can see some off track excursions happening while we try to find decent lines around there. Ive only driven a few laps but I can see the challenge this little track is going to give us, I just need to find a decent line!

    San Jose
    Another road course in san Jose but in this case its a street circuit, Confined track, Tight corners will make this a race to win in qualification. Passing will be rather difficult but there may be a few places on the circuit a late brake pedal may give you the edge to overtake.

    New Jersey
    Well to be honest I wasnt looking forward to any of the road track releases but this in my view is the finest road circuit we now have in ARCA sim racing. The cars drive very well around the track, for some reason it seems its far easier to drive the stockcar around here than say Montreal.

    all i can say is sim factory you make me dream oval racing hahaha. love the game:)
     
  9. Dou you have some picture of the new body and other eyes candy,
    is really important to have the life of our race as the pit crew, official and other thing and we will see more clearly damage model for the eyes and the realism

    Thanks sim-factory your sim is very great and hopes to see all these things in the very near future.

    Yep, auto clutch was on you got me.... :D The back end at low speeds downshifting likes to come around and with all these 1st gear turns thats not good! Im not used to braking lots and turning right!

    It sounds awful I know.. I just needed a few clean laps :)
