    Sector3 Studios have confirmed the little Lotus Evora will form the third car of the upcoming GT4 category within RaceRoom Racing Experience.

    With Sector3 having only recently announced the long awaited release of the KTM Xbow GT4 in the upcoming patch, the closed top variant of the wonderful and at the time rather unique KTM Xbox joining the newly reworked Porsche Cayman ClubSport in the GT4 category within the game, the Swedish development group have popped in another rather nice surprise with the announcement of the Lotus Evora GT4.

    Set to be the exact opposite of the Xbow GT4 - as in announced one week and released the next, the Evora is a welcome addition to what is set to become a rather popular category within the title, and bolsters the brand new to the title class of racing to a very respectable starting grid of three different and unique brands - with many more no doubt set to join the simulation in the months ahead.

    The GT4 Evora will be made available in the upcoming November patch alongside the Porsche Cayman and KTM Xbow GT4 cars as additional DLC content, with no pricing details yet to be released.

    Want to see the Evora and other GT4 cars in action out on track? Stay tuned to the RaceDepartment Twitch channel this Friday at 8PM UK for a live stream interview and track action marathon!

    RaceRoom Racing Experience is a free to play racing simulation from Sector3 Studios.

    Simple solution, don't play it. iRacing is always looking for new members. :rolleyes: The post wasn't even 30 minutes old and people already whining. :cry:

    I think that's just not that simple to say:"OK, so here we have this car, let us do it!" Rights and money must be in the equasion for sure. As for myself, I would be happier with an AMG GT4 or a Ginetta GT4 but hey...we have a nice car. :) I hope that later we'll get some of the modern GT4 cars.

    If you think everyone wants to see your constant whining about DLC and "ignoring feedback" on every bit of Raceroom-related news, you are very much mistaken. You really should find a new hobby.

    An entire GT4 roster would be a massive ask, there are way more GT4 cars then the ones that you have listed, it would be very expensive and I doubt their community is large enough to cover such a cost.

    I've got RRRE however I just can't get it feeling at all right with my OSW.

    It's a real shame as I love the depth of cars and what not but just fail to get on board with it.

    Happy to take any advise!

    Yes there are many teams with 14 manufacturers, of course all will not be included but it's always good to let developers know what you would spend money on.

    If I may add some food for thought here. Is anyone else curious about the license Kunos scored with SRO?
    SRO runs both GT3/4 so it may not be a wild assumption to think about ACC GT4 DLC at some point, say season start 2020 @ Monza?
    Just throwing that out there.

    ....Well at least a "real" gt4 grid is something i'm really really looking for, so it's a great news....
    ..In another part, X-Bow is living his last season IRL and Evora never really runed in gt4 (1 car in british-gt 2 years ago, that's all)...
    I'm not an R3E fan (tyre model too simple, brakes way too simple too...), and a bit disapointed about that cars BUT (important) I'll give it a try...If it could encourages other GT4 in the future, it's great :)

    Cool....looking forward to trying these after they move to a new engine :)

    Hopefully we will see more gt4 cars come to the game like the ones posted above.
    The KTM and Evora are dying breeds in RL as mentioned.

    Really wish they would rethink there initial DLC releases and release class car packs rather than single cars....than group it as a pack down the road?
    Ya I could purchase the premium pack and get everything for $50....but holding out for the new engine to get my monies worth :)

    I've enjoyed Raceroom over the years, especially the GT3 class, graphics are still very good, even now, perhaps being spoilt now but the recent Sims with their changing time of day etc. Raceroom starts to look a bit stale stuck on sunny weather ........ :unsure: but they could overcome that if they added lots of features which seem basic these days. I wont make a list as we all have opinions...... :cautious:

    I welcome the GT4 class, though a bit late with outdated cars :whistling: but give me an offline multi-class feature and I might get my wallet out.....:sneaky:

    I don't mean to be negative, but now I have to pay for something, which is free in AC, and tbh will have better handling. This is not an "us verses them" but how can one charge and one not?

    Raceroom seem to be playing catchup but using the IRacing (you need to re-mortgage) route for anything and everything you want.

    I am up for DLC don't get me wrong, but when it becomes more expensive than running a hot tup for a week, I have to question it.

    It doesn't actually look that good as well :thumbsdown:

    I don’t think it’s fair to lump raceroom in the same boat as iRacing...I have both: R3E is WAY cheaper. I remember buying the everything bundle for R3E and it came up to about $65 USD (that was earlier this year I believe). $65 is about half of a 1 year membership to iRacing (can’t remember if that was a discount or not)...and that doesn’t include cars and tracks, that’s just to race. Cars cost $12 each, tracks $15 each. It does come with some cars and tracks, but it’s all the older content mostly...as you go up in license class you’ll have to pay much more to compete.

    So essentially R3E with everything is about the cost of a AAA game...iRacing, not so much. Also not a “this vs. that” post, just FYI. Not bashing iRacing, because even though it’s very expensive, the ability to race others online 24/7 is currently unrivaled.

    I just thought I would mention in defense of race room that it looks and plays really good in VR. I wish ACC could be half as playable using VR maybe it will get better.
