    RaceRoom Racing Experience Karlskoga 3.jpg
    Sector3 Studios have released the Swedish Karlskoga Motorstadion track alongside a small hotfix to RaceRoom Racing Experience.

    Karlskoga is the first of three currently known Scandinavian circuits coming to RaceRoom Racing Experience, soon to be joined by the already announced Anderstorp Raceway and Mantorp Park thought to be ready for deployment into the game store within the next few weeks.

    The track is probably best known to European race fans for it's staring role played in former SimBin titles Race 07, STCC the Game and STCC 2 the Game, however the track is the oldest permanent racing facility in Sweden and still hosts many national championship events such as the Scandinavian Touring Car Championship and supporting Camaro Cup. Located just 6km outside of Karlskoga itself, the circuit is just 2.4 km in length and contains just 11 corners.

    Retailing for just £2.60, the Karlskoga track comes in two different layouts for RaceRoom, the full Grand Prix layout at 2.53km and the shorter 1.143km short circuit configuration. The track is available to purchase from the RaceRoom Store with immediate effect and the new update will download automatically once your start your Steam client.


    About the track:

    Karlskoga Motorstadion, also known as Gelleråsen is the oldest permanent motorsport race track in Sweden. The layout is such that the whole track can be seen from all spectator areas. The track is quite flat and open consisting of medium speed corner combinations with a very long sweeping turn leading in to the start/finish straight. While this may make it look like an easy drive, it also means that racing is close and intense. The overtaking zones will be hotly contested, so car positioning could be instrumental in securing the win.

    Hotfix Patch

    Game:

    • Fixed so the aspect ratio and the resolution option dynamically updates and only shows the supported settings of the currently selected monitor.
    • Fixed mouse going offset for menu after changing resolution.
    • Fixed so the minimum refresh rate is 59 and fixed a DirectX resolution related crash.
    • Fixed issue with game not resetting back to the old monitor if the player didn't apply video settings.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur due to spring based range lock failing to initialize.
    • Fixed an issue with new data displays not showing laps remaining when race has a laps based duration.
    • Fixed an issue with new data displays showing wrong text if fuel usage is disabled.
    • Fixed an issue where the free flight camera speed was not affecting the camera tilt.

    Multiplayer:
    • Fixed dedi crash that was occurring when people disconnected from race session without finishing at least one lap. This was causing people to get kicked out to the lobby without seeing the race result.
    • Fixed the issue with players never receiving a penalty for ignoring mandatory pit stops in MP.

    Art:
    • Bentley Continental GT3 - Adjusted steering wheel / column position
    • Formula RaceRoom Junior - Fixed some pixels bleeding from the outside into the cockpit of livery #20

    Portal & Backend:

    • Fixed so the currency preference of the player is saved on logout.
    • Fixed an issue where linked content discount was not applying so the linked car was appearing at full price.
    • Fixed essential packs showing twice in the storefront.


    RaceRoom Racing Experience is available for PC via the Steam Network. You can download the game with limited content for free - additional car and track packs can be purchased in the game store.

    Looks great! I hope they will also do the Sturup. As much as I want this circuit, I feel that I already have too many cars and circuits in R3E than my play time allows me to enjoy them all. I hope this is just the beginning of an "STCC" pack - only then I won't be able to resist to get it.

    I never liked the track itself, but this is a really fair price, for this one. Nobody can say "no" to that.

    Imagine some Supertourers on this track!

    Btw, Mantorp is boring. Bring us Ring Knutstorp instead!

    Good club track for touring cars and lower-powered open wheelers. Short, narrow and surprisingly challenging.

    Yup, seeing that this super saloon is placed under legends, paint job almost matches Poulsens.

    The rebuild could be cool too and Jyllands Ringen ofc.
    Was kind of impressive to see how well those 240's did back in time, not to forget the roar when they passed by.

    Even more impressive is that they still are among the most popular cars in Swedish rallying, fighting for first place of popularity with the Volvo 940. 940 has taken over more and more now though.

    OK, I've managed a few races. And although I'm a little weird because I like every track ever, this one is fantastic, especially in DTM 92 and Touring Classics. So much sliding action, I went to bed with a smile on my face.

    Can't wait for the other two.
