    Following on from the recent Sector3 live stream event, the studio have revealed several new pieces of content are in the works for RaceRoom Racing Experience - with a release imminent on a number of vehicles.

    Already well known to those who follow the simulation closely, Sector3 have confirmed that the Audi TT RS VLN and KTM X-bow RR will very soon be joining the list of vehicles available for purchase in the simulation. With plenty of excitement ahead for fans of the title, it feels like the right time to do a little recap of what has been revealed by Sector3.

    KTM X-Bow RR

    The KTM X-Bow RR is the race version of the interestingly different KTM X-Bow machine. Found in many national championship and traditionally running under GT4 regulations, the X-Bow has increased in popularity considerably in recent years. Renowned for exceptional handling and a thrilling driving experience, the X-Bow will no doubt be a very interesting and different experience for RaceRoom players. Revealed during the stream, Sector3 have specifically developed suspension animation in order to maximise the visual experience for this car, a benefit that will roll out to many different pieces of content within the title. Already loaded into the sim as part of the latest patch, and due to be centre of attention in an upcoming competition, the KTM X-Bow RR should be made available to purchase in the very near future.

    Audi TT RS VLN

    Bit like the Audi Sport TT Cup car but on performance enhancing drugs, with a massive wing. The TT RS VLN is a regular competitor in the legendary VLN series based at Germany's Nuremberg Nordschleife and should be finding its way into the RaceRoom store in the very near future. As is the usual process with Sector3, the TT RS VLN has already been added to the game during the latest patch and is awaiting unlocking for purchase by the studio. During the stream no details on when the car will be made available were shared, however one would imagine a release is just around the corner.

    With both the X-Bow and TT RS VLN due to be released in the very near future, Sector3 also went on to highlight other pieces of content at various stages of development, including one or two surprises...

    Formula RaceRoom 3
    RaceRoom Racing Experience Formula RaceRoom 3.png

    The Formula RaceRoom 3 is a fictional version of the exceptionally popular Formula 3 championship car. Slightly quicker in pace than the Formula 4 already available in the title, the FR3 should slot nicely in to the middle of the current fictional single seater ladder under development in RaceRoom. Running a slicks and wings configuration, the FR3 is a fairly advanced open wheel race car falling naturally below the GP2 inspired FR2 machine but offering greater performance and laptime than the entry level F4 Tatuus. Traditionally a proving ground for many talented youngsters on their way to the pinnacle of open wheel racing in real life, the FR3 will no doubt prove a popular racing car and should encourage close racing online. No details have been released with regards to when this vehicle will be included for purchase, however development looks pretty much complete and I wouldn't be surprised if we see this released before then end of the year, possibly in the December update...?

    Formula RaceRoom US

    RaceRoom Racing Experience Formula US.png
    A fictional recreation of the 2016 American IndyCar machine, the Formula RaceRoom US will enter as the quickest open wheel vehicle currently available in RaceRoom. Overtaking the GP2 spec FR2, the Formula RaceRoom US should prove to be quite a handful on track. No details have been revealed as to when this content will be released to the game store, or even what stage of development the content is currently at. Judging by the screenshots and the fact the cars already have liveries designed and included, it is not a great stretch of the imagination to guess these cars are at an advanced state and could well be finding their way in game during the early part of 2017.

    Considering the only things faster than one of those on a road course are Formula 1 cars or LMP1 cars, I'd say they are plenty safe.

    As an IndyCar fan, the Formula US looks very interesting, it would be better if we could paint our own liveries, maybe they could try adding an extra slot for a custom paints if you own all the paints for a car (I like painting and racing nice looking cars). Also, I think R3E needs some more tracks. But I also believe it's headed the right way.

    I've seen them run at the Toronto Honda Indy, a street circuit that runs clockwise. Believe me, they can make right hand turns just as well as they do left hand turns. The sound these things make at the end of the long straight as they gear down for the hairpin is absolutely explosive!

    Formula 3 is coming. Finally. The best racing possible in the world in a game. Very nice.
    And an Indycar as a birthday surprise for me? Boy now that is something I am really looking for.

    Nice. If they add ovals, that's my wet dream. They would have to add like 20 more setup options though :D

    The marketing team probably rushed this through after the issues with the last patch not working very well on most PC setups.

    But this is great news. A nice mix of GT and open wheeler updates.

    Will be interesting to see what the Indycar sounds like. If sector3 work their usual magic it should be pretty good.

    The KTM I can see being a pretty good online option. Reasonable power. Not too fast. Should be good fun.

    Lastly the F3 car. Really happy to see that one as well.

    Any leagues planned after this little lot gets switched on for purchase? Haha.

    Looking forward to the new GT3s, not really interested in any of the other upcoming stuff.

    The game needs more tracks. Hopefully Silverstone will arrive before Christmas but otherwise it's been a disappointing year on the track front.

    The other things I would really like are a flag system, an AI selector to choose custom grids and more character to the AI in general (spins, crashes, retirements, failures).

    What I would like to see is a championship-mode for the multiplayer like there was for "DTM Race Driver 2" in 2004.
    This was big fun and everybody finished his race even he gets only a few points.

    A simple quick-race-championship...

    But please first bring another patch :mad: to elimate all these bugs, lags and in particular the many invisible cars in the multiplayer. Currently this game is horrible for league race :thumbsdown:

    I don't think I gave this a proper go when I got the Free part ages ago (lack of time/other games), but seeing this line:
    - Support for Virtual Reality headsets in development and working in test environment
    I'm now more interested and will be keeping a close eye on this title :)

    I bought some content for this game a year or two ago, but drifted away to other titles that had VR support.

    Might be drifting back soon.

    What's the AI like now? I seem to recall people saying it was good when I barely touched it last time (really can't remember!) and it appears more work has been on going in this area. Obvious comparisons to RF2 would be appreciated :) thanks
