    I think we can rest assured that Reiza will be doing everything they can to get this finished before Christmas or in early January. It makes sense for them to capitalize on a time where people are most likely to purchase something such as this (even though people like us would buy it whenever).

    Reiza deserves good sales and releasing the game before AC , rF2 and pCars would maximize financial success.

    Jep, and if they keep giving them a hard time remove the sponsors and release the cars with a blank template :)

    I wonder what "official" stands for in the game description ("the official simulator of the popular Brazilian Fórmula Truck series"). I would think all licensing and authorization issues should be covered in an "official" game by definition.

    Anyway, hopefully nobody will stand in the way. After all, what can be better for the series profile than a properly designed simulator? =)

    Thats actually an easy question, to answer. Simbin fell foul, of this assumption, as has become evident, in the digital re release of its titles atm.
    The series, is run by one authority, that authority has given license for the series name to be used. While that authority, allows a manufacturer to participate within its series. It has no control, over that manufacturers' licensing.
    Reiza have official license, to the series name, not its participants. They are doing all that they can, to rectify this, until they do they can't release reproductions of a manufacturers' models.

    If that's the case, series license looks pretty much useless, why bother obtaining it at all? I say just get those permissions from manufacturers/teams. Who cares whether it is labeled "Formula Truck" or "Brakes Are For Cowards"? =)

    For publicity reasons I can totally understand why they want to have it 100% licensed. If a real life series is your affiliate you can easily sell your game to the followers of that series. A whole new market beside the trusted simracing sites.

    As a simracer I couldn't care less if its licensed or not. I am not interested in the names or the liveries, just want to race trucks :)
