I think a lot of these changes in all the sims have come around because of the exposure in e-sports, online, YouTube, etc.

For example S397 I reckon have pushed things like the new shaders, formula e tracks and the Ferrari in RF2 purely because of things like the official Formula E events taking place and the Virtual Le Mans 24 coming up. I'm sure they were in the works, but they were probably pushed forward to make sure that the exposure (from a marketing point of view) is at it's maximum. If you please some big manufacturers and you get them on your side that's a huge bonus in tough times like these.

I think it's the same with this, the e-sports versions of DTM have been popular at looking at the viewing figures. If the makes involved want to help Sector3 develop an update then that's brilliant in my view. I love the DTM's in Raceroom and as mentioned the URD mods are really popular on RF2 and AC as well.

As above, it's a real shame that Aston Martin won't be there, however fingers crossed it may be included as an update later on.

Always a big fan of Raceroom, great content, and good fun too.

Maybe if someone like Jaguar or Mazda for example noticed the exposure this sim has gotten, maybe we'll get 787B's and and XJR-9's in the Group C packs...yeah I know, wishful thinking! ;)

Brilliant idea.:thumbsup:
But what further cars are you thinking of?
Me thinking that mixing the group Cs with some GTP cars could be phhantaastisk:laugh:


Read my idea above Mrr. Monteil.
Veeeery caarefully:roflmao:
The great thing about WEC and IMSA over the years is that they have had a number of cars, if not exact crossovers close enough to adjust with displacement, weight or other means so that the amount of cars within the classes could grow exponentially.
Actual examples? I, as well as many others have posted in the car wish list by the dozens :)

There is a video out there of some extremely sexy sounding and looking GTP cars (or Group C?) racing on Spa.
I think both the Sauber and the rotary Mazda(?) is among.
I cannot find the video - but its worth seeking:roflmao:

ByTheWay: Wroooooar Wroooooar:laugh:

Thanks, I am well aware of these cars. I was merely expressing that many others share our same sentiment and I wasn't going to waste everyones time by illustrating what has already been expressed.

Nono I did ofcourse understand that you know what GTP or Group C cars actually is.:thumbsup:
But the video I refered to has so extremely sexy sounds that I would still be playing the GTP mod every day if these sounds was inside the game.:roflmao:

Jaguar I-Pace Trophy ,but i think people who buy a SUV dont care for motorsport.
People who buy SUVs have just given up on life. Literally the biggest piles of crap out there. Have to be a sandwich short of a picnic to look at a car and think to yourself "i want a car that looks like a 4x4 but isnt 4wd and uses twice the amount of fuel as the normal car this is based on"

I wonder if that means we'll get the Igora track too?
I'm sure it's not.I live in this country - people get their tickets back. I wanted to go too, but now it looks like a mockery because of local laws, so the DTM decision to cancel is completely correct.
As far as I know, all stages will only take place in Germany.

New content is nice I suppose, but adding a series which is all but dead? Meh, can't say that I'm particularly excited to be honest. :unsure:
Oh dear, noone told me we aren't allowed to have non-current series in our sims! Better tell the devs to take all the historic content out!

Way to take my post and twist it into something clearly not meant so that you can make a "clever" comment. :thumbsup:

According to their website, races will also take place at Zolder, Brands Hatch, Assen, and Monza.
