    The exceptionally talented PiBoSo has released beta build 11 of the impressive World Racing Series simulation for Windows PC.

    Released just a couple of days ago, the new beta 11 build for World Racing Series weighs in at 552 MB and contains a number of fixes to both simulation aspects and online multiplayer elements of the game. With VR support improvements, enhancements to cut track rules and other minor and major developments the beta 11 build is a nice update to a game that already performs remarkably well.

    For those of you maybe not so familiar with the work of PiBoSo, World Racing Series is an independently developed racing simulation that contains a raft of unlicensed racing vehicles covering a range of different motorsport styles. The physicals and level of detail within the game are incredibly impressive, especially considering the status as an independent game, and bring to the player a very satisfying driving experience cram packed with features missing from some more established names.

    The new build changelog can be read in full below, plus a couple of videos showcasing some of the different content found within the simulator.

    hmm, with Pcars 2, Reiza 17, RF2 going to DX11, and Gtr3, it seems a new era of sim racing games is on the horizon, and the ol' rfactor engine mite have run its course by now, even AMS pushes the engine to its absolute limits, I think its time sim developers look towards a new engine to develope games on, G motor 2 is really starting to show its age, and another sim running on it just seems like wasted effort considering its starting to become limited and lacks the optimization of current engines.

    So this is another sim out there that I have never heard of? WOW, I am so disconnected. But being indie, is it serious? I mean, we all like new things, especially in sim racing. The biggest issue is to find enough other drivers that are racing in the same place.

    This game has limitations as does GP Bikes but it's an excellent modding option for rally mods and other loose surface cars. Maybe this RD highlight will bring some interest.

    PS: Piboso did focus on implementing VR from the beginning, so all of you with sets have good reason to try it.

    Never heard of this before, but I'm loving the sprint car, that alone will get me to try it when it's released. I have a copy of Sprint car outlaws, was sick fun back in the day, might have to keep an eye on this title.:thumbsup:

    I'd say that Caterham wasn't half bad, if a little tricky. Not sure if I prefer the AMS ones over this rendition.

    Not all but the best cars in AMS en RF2 kick every other sim out of the water.
    Except for the eyecandy department. But driving a DX11 sim at noon (dull lights) does not make that much difference from the cockpit view.

    Tracks are another weak aspect of the games. A lot of them are rf1 conversions, which often were conversions. If some members of the modding community support it, it can be awesome. GP Bikes has some fantastic bikes, some built from scratch.
