For many of us, diving into the world of sim racing was all about replicating the amazing moments we witnessed in front of TV or trackside. The passion for motorsport and the wish of being a major part of it, being the hero in our favourite car, lifting the trophy of our favourite championship. It´s similar when you get into development or any other job attached to sim racing. You want to bring to life your experiences with the software you are working on. For many of you who know rFactor 2, you are probably familiar with the name of our studio and the story behind it: Studio ‘397’, based on the maximum amount of laps that had been done by a winning team in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
So, with that, we are proud to announce that we have teamed up with the ACO, the organiser of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Motorsport Games to bring you the most iconic endurance event in the world to rFactor 2 – on the 13th and 14th June 2020. With full coverage, real racing teams, real motorsport action, that’s what awaits you!
This iconic endurance event probably does not need any introduction so let’s instead talk about what that actually means to us. With a Le Mans reference in our studio name, it was probably clear to many sim racing fans out there that we would love to bring that famous track to our title and also see the real event coming to life in rFactor 2, virtually.
We are not done with good news just yet though!
To celebrate the event in the right way, we will also soon release a new Le Mans special pack. This will, for the first time ever in rFactor 2, include cars from one of the most desirable car manufacturer in the world, Ferrari!
The Ferrari 488 GTE and GT3 will be added to our already big roster of Endurance and GT racing cars. If you already own the Le Mans track and other items from that pack, you will be able to buy the new cars to complete your content library.
