In the newest announcement about rFactor 2's Q4 content drop, yet another circuit will be released. BTCC fans rejoice: Croft Circuit is officially coming!
If I were a Yorkshire person, I'd be proud right now, as Studio 397 announced Croft Circuit, the go-to Yorkshire motorsports venue to be officially added as DLC to rFactor 2.
After only having a (rather good) mod for Croft, now is the time for an update and official support. Don't forget, however, this DLC is laser-scanned.
The Track ItselfHosting major races in the BTCC as well as British F4, Croft is a go-to venue for British motorsports.
Racing at Croft started all the way back in the 1920s but like so many English race tracks, it was only after World War 2 that Croft became a significant motorsports venue. And how else would it be, than by using a decommissioned Royal Air Force airfield?
Croft's first race as a permanent circuit was in 1964 at the so-called "Autodrome" using a 1.75-mile (2.816 km) layout with 12 turns. That layout persisted all the way until 1981 when the track had fallen into disrepair.
Until 1995, no circuit racing happened, however, the FIA European Rallycross Championship was hosted several times on the premises.
A short-lived new layout in 1995-1996 meant resumed circuit racing at Croft. In 1997, though, the layout as it stands today was built.
Croft features a Main Circuit with 2.127 miles (3.423 km) and 16 corners and two club circuits. Club Circuit 'A' and 'B' are shorter loops of existing main circuit roads.
The Q4 Content Drop So FarUp until now, the Q4 content drop releases the following DLC:
- Bahrain International Circuit
