In line with our ‘open’ nature we wanted to keep everyone informed about what happened last weekend. Before we do, let’s start by saying thanks to all the teams and drivers involved and everyone in the rFactor 2 world for their continued support. We value everyone who shares our passion for simracing.
So, what is this all about and what happened?
Last weekend, July 6 and 7th, we started into what should have been an exciting 24 hour race on our newly released Le Mans Circuit. With top teams and drivers, amazing commentators and some incredible racing action ahead, we had been on the edge of our seats all day long to finally kick it off. Unfortunately, roughly 12 hours into the event, we had to face a decision that no one here at the Studio took lightly.
Unfortunately due to technical issues we had to red flag and cancel the rFactor 24 event. A significant group of drivers and teams were affected by technical issues beyond their control and ours and we felt it just wasn’t right to finish the event in this way. On one side we wanted the battles to be on track and not decided by technical issues, on the other side we didn’t want to leave our community with disappointment after crossing the finish line.
Next step and something that’s already underway, we have created a task force working on a solution for what stopped our event from being the great race it could have been. Their work will include everything, from gathering info, data and logs from the participants, to work out the source of these problems and then ultimately solving these issues. This is a priority for us, as endurance racing is a core aspect of the game, so we want to make sure that you can enjoy rFactor 2 without worrying about the software side.
We are 100% committed and passionate about rFactor 2. We are fully dedicated to bring an excellent experience to our users!
