And surprise-surprise! The rF2 club is on the ball with some GT3-Sprint action on Friday! Perfect chance to test the new Ferrari in a two-race evening at Portland!

If you don't have a GT3, you have failed your simulation. It's the fashion^^.

It's like Far Cry with all the games afterwards that exploited the beaches with more or less success.

Maybe one day we'll come back to steam car games.

Audi tires design fits right in to this topic. To me they look awesome.
Fine for an initial release, but painters are trying to create cars that match the originals. You may have noticed that very few(yes very very few if any) Audi competitors race at Nords or IMSA or WEC with those promo skined tires.

Do the cars come with reasonable liveries? Not blank cars or numbered cars only, like the Bentley.
For the GTE they added all the liveries that were used in the Virtual 24 hours of Le Mans a while back. Also for all the other GTE and LMP2 cars.
