    Exceptionally talented developer PiBoSo has finally confirmed his professionally developed karting simulator Kart Racing Pro will be making the jump to the Steam platform on June 30th 2016.

    Kart Racing Pro has been in development already for quite some and already shows many desirable features for a modern fully fleshed out racing simulator.

    With dynamic track rubber and wet weather rain effects as well as a desire to realistically capture the many nuances of racing a variety of high performance racing karts, Kart Racing Pro has become for many the go to choice of racing game for those with an interest in motorsports entry level series.

    Kart Racing Pro is fully moddable and already has a wealth of user created content available to download alongside the PiBoSo created content that comes with the launch version of the title.

    With classes KF1 (125 cc, 16,000rm), KF3 (125cc, 14,000rpm), KZ1 (125cc geared), FS250 (250cc, 13,000rpm), F100 (100cc) and Mini 60 rental cars alongside 4 officially circuits (with literally hundreds of mod addon tracks) Kart Racing Pro is a well established and highly polished karting simulator for Windows PC.

    Dynamic Drying Track WIP

    Kart Racing Pro is a realistic karting simulator.
    The aim is to create a software useful as a training tool for real drivers, based on a scratch built physics engine that accurately simulates kart dynamics and setup options.
    As such a steering wheel is strongly recommended, although keyboard, joysticks and gamepads are fully supported.

    Kart Racing Pro also allows to host and join online races, with an integrated matchmaking server. During events data is collected, to provide statistics for drivers' comparison.

    • automotive industry-standard tyre model
    • chassis flex simulation
    • dynamic track surface groove buildup
    • wet track simulation and dynamic drying
    • dynamic marbles generation
    • tyres pickup of marbles, grass and dirt, affecting grip
    • user-selectable driver gestures
    • output of CSV files with telemetry data to analyze driving sessions
    • a plugins interface allows external programs to receive realtime data from the simulated kart
    • LAN and online racing. Dedicated server available
    • support of custom paint schemes for kart, helmet and suit
    • full modding is possible: advanced users can build new tracks, karts, engines, helmets, ... and integrate them with the provided tools

  3. Bet it's gonna cost an arm and a leg. Small time developers are always pricey on steam. Except for BeamNG.Drive. That one is more than reasonably priced.

    It's 33 euro on their website. I'm downloading it now. It seems to be the game is a demo, then you unlock more stuff through a key.
  6. I can only expect fanboy wars between this and KartKraft.

    pretty stupid move from Piboso.
    To come out this late with the Steam version.. because if Kartkraft is any good then KRP will never be played anymore..

    I've got KRP for quite a while now and its pretty realistic but its still has those pumped up
    Rfactor looks.

    Kart Kraft it is

    Having driven some gokarts in Automobilista recently, and the fact i couldnt let them for whole day, speaks volumes. Cannot wait for this one.
  11. Tested it over the years and it feels great to drive.

    If you've already bought the game do you get a steam key for free? I think this was €15 when I bought it.

    Spent a lot of time in this sim hot lapping, kept messing up the starts in online races though.
  13. Still nothing on Steam :(
