With the superb way RR does FWD? I had and put 163,000 miles on an new '81 Scirocco S (last 1st gen car). White with black factory Recaros. Yes I'm old, and these cars are basically gone. Cannot wait to drive a 1st Gen Scirocco again. Wow.
I thought I had read somewhere that they were group 5, not group 2 as suggested in the title.
Oh well, clearly read it wrong wherever I saw it.
Nice... But yet again they introduce only one car in a new category. I wish they would release a few at a time so we can use that car in races other than single make races.
You can I think....just set up a Multi-class Race choosing other cars that would matchNice... But yet again they introduce only one car in a new category. I wish they would release a few at a time so we can use that car in races other than single make races.
New R3E track = £4.50. Two Starbucks Cappuccinos = £5.20. New R3E track = Hours of fun. Two Starbucks Cappuccinos = 30 mins if you don't mind drinking the last half lukewarm.
Expensive? Given the cost to entertainment ratio, I really don't think so.
Much more expensive if you buy it piecemeal though, unless you really know you will never want everything.
If you access the store from within the game (so you're logged into your account) and click the Car / Track links, everything you don't own will appear at the top displayed in full colour. Everything you already own will be underneath and desaturated. Makes it much easier to find new stuff when it's released.Hardest thing really is remembering what I do and don't have.
Please for the love of God release that Group 5 version too! Wow!The Scirocco Gr.5 actually existed aswell, but it never raced anywhere afaik. It was build by Zender :
As for the R3E car, it's the Group 2 version, by far the most raced Scirocco in ETCC and DRM.
On the race reports, you'll see it classified as Div.I which is normal as at this time, the DRM rules divided the cars in two classes: Div.I for Gr.1 and Gr.2, Div.II for Gr.4 and Gr.5.
Both classes have raced together on track in some DRM events, but each in its own class.
Obviously, depending on the track layout, the Gr.2 cars could fight a bit with the Gr.4 cars. On the bigger tracks,
the Scirocco and others Gr.2 didn't have a chance to compete with the Div.II cars though

You are not alone, I've been mostly playing the Daytona Road Course in RaceRoom for the last few weeks. I'm more glued to the track than the cars are.Indeed, just found it. all I am short of is a couple of tracks (am I the only person who loves the Daytona road course??) a couple of 2020 DTMs, the 2019 porsche RSR and a few skins.

It could be a matter of perceived categorical relevance. Meaning iRacing is well established as the best multiplayer platform for hardcore Sim-racing whereas, RaceRoom isn't generally seen as comparing well in either sense. I think RaceRoom exists under the radar for many serious sim-racers.That's something that surprises me a lot - how much talk (relatively speaking) there is about ranked multiplayer coming to rF2, and how little talk (and interest) there seems to be about the fact that Raceroom has been doing ranked multiplayer (iRacing style, too, as in races scheduled all day) for quite some time now, as well as regular bigger community races.
A few downsides I've noticed is that living in Western Canada, the player numbers peak at 11 am here. If your an evening racer like I am during the week the servers are a ghost town and your lucky to see 2 other players in the servers.
