Hyundai i30 Completes rFactor 2 Q3 Content Drop

It has been decided. After Gateway, Mini and Caterham, the final piece of content in Q3 will be a new BTCC car. And none other than the Hyundai i30.

Backed by positive feedback after the first 2 BTCC cars, Studio 397 aim to further its offering of the British Touring Car Championship.

As such, this release follows up on Studio 397's "intention to bring the full grid to life within rFactor 2".

Now, the previous statement was more interesting than the actual release of the car. The reason is simple:

We've Got More BTCC Coming!​

If we take a look at the BTCC 2022 season, we can see the following cars:
  • Ford Focus ST
  • Hyundai i30 - coming Q3
  • Toyota Corolla GR - released Q2
  • BMW 330e M
  • Honda Civic Type R
  • Infiniti Q50 - released Q2
  • Cupra León
  • Vauxhall Astra
So if the aforementioned promise holds true for this season, there are still 5 more cars to come for the British series.

I look forward to the Vauxhall Astra most. But what would you like to see coming to rFactor 2? Let us know in the comments down below!

Wow, wow and wow! So another BTCC touring car being released and
confirmation that the missing cars of the series are coming too. Very
good news. Hopefully they release the remaining tracks too.

This, plus the Mini and the Academy and the Gateway track is a lot
of stuff. These quarter releases like the previous one are really
Oh, I forgot to mention that I miss in that video bits of the cockpit view
of the car. Hopefully they put out another video this weekend where
it is seen.
What I would like to see in rfactor 2 .... firstly the btcc with all the cars + laser scan circuits then the offline championship and multiplayer.... This is the most urgent thing even if it means calling in an outside company to develop it.

Then the American circuits "indycar" "nascar" Watkins glen road america long beach Texas Speedway

The new GT3 2022-2024 :Lamborghini, Porsche, Ferrari, Acura, Mercedes...Corvette

WEC 2023/2024 licenses LMH LMDH
The new nascar sprint cup series cars

+ Which world circuits are essential: bathrust, suzuka, macao, Hockenheimring, Portimao, Barcelona, Magny Cours Paul Ricard Bugatti ( le mans) road atlanta

All they are doing is selling you a 'make your own' btcc game for more than you would have paid for the btcc game. That and being able to cover not being able to hit release dates for the complete game or having to release a game with actual structure and AI that wasn't garbage like the NASCAR game.
i love the BTCC in rF2 and this Hyundai is so sexy!!
as usual always 2 or 3 haters who don't even play the game come to spit their venom... don't change anything champion!
I own the game most of the content apart from the last year or so.
