    The RaceRoom Free Weekend returns this Saturday and Sunday, with access to the new BMW M6 GT3 and the Austrian Red Bull Ring free for all players of the sim.

    Running off of the back of several previously successful 'Free Weekend' promotions in recent months, this time around Sector3 Studios will be making available the recently released BMW M6 GT3 car and the Red Bull Ring Circuit for no cost during the coming weekend. Both track and car can be experienced in single player and online mode, meaning either car or track can be used against other players in a multiplayer environment. Of course as has been the case for quite some time with this simulation, multiplayer events are possible to enter when content you don't own is in use, so the opportunity for servers running the M6 GT3 alongside a goodly selection of some of the impressive GT3 spec content in the game should provide plenty of entertainment over the coming couple of days.

    For those of you who missed the initial launch of the M6 GT3 to the sim a couple of months ago, check out our launch article HERE plus the car trailer below:


    RaceRoom Racing Experience is a racing simulation that employs a free to play model with extra content purchasable at an additional cost. The BMW M6 GT3 can be bought either as a standalone package or as part of the wider GTR3 car pack.

    So (perhaps a dumb question) but does the content go back to locked after the weekend if we do not purchase it?

    Looks like ADAC GT Masters might be close to release. And then we'll finally have the AMG GT3 and Callaway C7. :inlove:

    Not me, I own everything in R3E so the promotion does me no good :D Nice car and track combo. I don't know if I have a favorite car and track but I lean towards the historics.

    Thats a nice addition to the game, ill have to check it out once they fix the crackling audio and stuttering caused by the pit engineer and onscreen messages.

    More like a demo than a commercial. It's a good idea and it shows the developers have confidence in their product. I wish all racing sims did the same thing. Plus R3E is pretty awesome in VR. Something AMS has failed to deliver.

    Make sure your default G27 settings in Windows are 900 degrees of rotation. Mine went to like 540 for some reason and the game was unplayable until I figured it out.

    You need to be running the Logitech profiler and also it depends on what drivers you're using. Logitech's newer ones don't work properly for R3E.

    You might want to try the RealFeel settings for G27, available in the Mods section here. I'm using these on my DFGT and it feels very good IMO.
