Sector3 Studios, by way of game producer J-F Chardon, have confirmed plans to bring a total of five different layouts to the upcoming Silverstone Grand Prix track for RaceRoom Racing Experience.
Following the recent announcement that work on developing Silverstone for R3E has restarted following the release of the epic laserscanned Nordschleife, Chardon has informed fans the studio are aiming to achieve a total of five layouts for the circuit, much to the expected delight of players. Although host to the FIA Formula One World Championship and FIA World Endurance Championship, Silverstone holds many regular national series events for lower powered Formula and closed cockpit vehicles, often utilising some of the many smaller configurations of the track more suited to less powerful machines.
With the many Touring Car and low power junior formulae vehicles currently available in RaceRoom, the smaller configurations of the circuit do make perfect sense from a gaming perspective. Unfortunately although a Historic GP Circuit layout is planned, it will not be the original track containing the Bridge Corner section, but instead the current configuration that utilises the original pit lane before Copse corner.
The full list of layouts proposed by Sector3 can be seen below:
GP Arena Circuit
Long National Circuit
Historic GP Circuit (as it is raced today) (modern layout but old pits and fast chicanes)
No release date for Silverstone has been announced, and as with any work in progress project the planned layouts may be subject to change.
