In further good news for rFactor 2 fans, Studio 397 have this morning taken to social media to reveal another new car will be heading to the simulation this month, with the Chevrolet Corvette C8.R set to be released alongside the previously announced Cadillac DPi-V.R prototype endurance racer.

The C8.R represents the eighth generation of racing Corvette from the famous American brand, and one that has immediately proven to be successful in the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship, with drivers and teams honours being taken by Antonio Garcia and Jordan Taylor in what is the first season of racing for the mid-engined sports car.

The studio have yet to reveal an exact release date for the new machine, nor for the Cadillac prototype, although we are assured it will arrive as DLC for the simulation in advance of the Christmas holidays.


Stay tuned for more information soon.....

At least we will get something interesting at the end of 2020, as more GTE and more LMP/Prototypes is indeed very nice! Will be fun to see how they stack up against their respective rivals! :geek:

Oh, and fix this and that blah blah blah and so on...

I love Rfactor2 but every dlc is too expensive, maybe if they launch a better offer more people like me will buy dlcs, cause we love the game, ffb and phisycs anyway i'm happy with this content and i think Dpi and C8 will be a great addon for the simracing community, just waiting if they sells dlc with a great offer. I think Rf2 need to be in others sites and platforms for having better discounts

Then wait for the Steam sales
Why do whenever a rF2 content comes up, everybody come to these thread and complain whilst being happy spending $4k on some RTX 3080 i9-10900K 128GB RAM PC.

What are they going to achieve by this?

The US flags on the sides of the cars are backwards...
Isn't it meant to be that way, just like on Marines uniforms? So they always face forward.

BTW on all 3 pictures of Corvette we see right side, and flag is displayed correctly, so I don't know where are you looking.

I wonder how the Cadillac is compared to the Oreca. Do we finally get two prototypes to use together, or will they be unevenly matched.
