    The Formula RaceRoom X-17 has today released for RaceRoom Racing Experience, adding the fastest open wheel car to the simulation to complete the open wheel career ladder in game.

    Get ready to crank up the volume as the highly anticipated top tier open wheel racing car, the Formula RaceRoom X-17, has finally been released for RaceRoom Racing Experience.

    Based loosely on the modern 2017 concept of a Grand Prix machine, but doing away with the highly uninspiring hybrid V6 Turbo engine and replacing it with a screaming high revving normally aspirated 3.0 Litre V10, the FRX-17 is the most downforce efficient, high performance and best handling open wheel racing car released for the simulation to date.

    Just in case you wondered what this new machine looks like in the flesh, check out the release trailer produced by Sector3 to accompany the most recent addition to the title:


    If that doesn't get your juices flowing quite enough to get excited about this car, then have a listen to the magic conjured up by Sector3 sound engineer (and quite possibly the best in the business) @anthony monteil:


    Impressive? Well I thought so too...

    Now with the totally not modern Formula One car having made it into the public build of the sim, Sector3 have completed their intended open wheel formula career ladder (including IndyCar, GP2, Formula 3 and various junior formulae) as the simulation looks to diversify from its traditional routes placed firmly in the world of closed top GT and Touring Car machines.

    So what's under the hood of the FRX-17? Let us take a quick look at the headline details:
    • 3.0 liter V10
    • 950hp @ 19000 rpm
    • 370Nm @ 17000 rpm
    • 7 speed paddle shift
    • 620 kg including driver
    • 44/56% Weight distribution, including driver, excluding fuel
    • 150 liter fuel tank
    • Maximum theoretical downforce is aprox 2800 kg @ 322 km/h.
    • Traction Control available
    • DRS System
    The car is available to purchase for RaceRoom Racing Experience from today and retails for £3.50 GBP. Additionally you can purchase all the extra liveries for the car for £6.84.

    RaceRoom Racing Experience is available as a free to play simulation exclusive to PC. Additional content such as the Formula RaceRoom X-17 can be purchased at an additional cost.

    @Paul Jeffrey Actually they're not quite done yet with the single-seaters.
    They did promise us a Formula Retro as well. :)
