In the December 20th RaceRoom update, Sector3 have addressed a number of outstanding issues with the game such as rolling start formation issues as well as adding several multiplayer enhancements to the title. The Formula RaceRoom 3 is an entry level Formula Three style open wheel racecar designed as a mid range step up the RaceRoom Open Wheel career ladder. With low power and reasonable downforce levels, the FR3 pays back a driver capable of smooth driving and keeping momentum through the corners.

The Formula RaceRoom 3 car pack is available to purchase from the in game store now and retails at 349 vRP for the car and 26 detailed liveries. Formula RaceRoom 3 Release Trailer "The FR3 is an open-wheel racing machine with highly efficient aerodynamics and incredibly performant brakes resulting in very quick laptimes. It sits in the middle of the Formula RaceRoom ladder and gives you the best of both sides. You'll need the precision and racecraft of the slower formula cars, and you get the adrenaline and excitement of the faster formula cars. It is the logical step up from the Tatuus F4 and it will prepare you to take on the F2 class. All in all the FR3 is a pivotal car to master and a lot of fun to drive at the same time!" You can read the full December 20th changelog below: Game: Fixed an issue where the game would get stuck after skipping a session in a custom championship. Fixed an issue where the car setup file was being saved in wrong directory after loading championship. Fixed an issue with cars being too spread out in rolling start and almost going off the road. Fixed an issue where tyres were changing regardless of player choice during pitstop. Fixed so brake bias etc. can only be changed as long as the player's car hasn't finished the race. Reduced ffb slip effects for default xbox gamepad control sets. Multiplayer: Removed RaceSeriesFormat from multiplayer (now it always use custom/RRE format). Disabled full lap time syncing upon joining a dedicated server. It now only requests the best lap time of each opponent instead of all of them.
