Hello sim racers!
We’ve had an endurance racing classic track, a British Touring Car Championship car and now it’s time for another change of pace, as we introduce the wonderful Vanwall Vandervell LMH – built in direct collaboration with Vanwall themselves!
Yes, an LMH has arrived in rFactor 2! Although the real world entry into top level endurance racing has been a little more complicated than initially expected for the Vanwall Vandervell outfit, the squad have been super keen to engage fully in the world of virtual motorsports, expanding their presence from the Virtual Le Mans series into designing and manufacturing this beautiful prototype for rFactor 2.
When Vanwall Vandervell reached out to Studio 397 to explain their idea of creating an official version of their real world machine in rFactor 2, we were understandably excited to see what the team could come up with in our simulation software – utilizing their wealth of insider knowledge and data to help bring to life in virtual form one of the most attractive of the new breed of endurance races ahead of the new era of sportscar GT racing. Having already been on the track several times testing the real world machine, Vanwall Vandervell have been incredibly keen to utilize that experience and data with this new car, and what they have created is a sensational experience behind the wheel, and a great early look at how this type of car might feel in an rFactor 2 environment.
While Vanwall Vandervell continue their own real world preparations as they bid to face off against some of the biggest names in motorsport on the world stage, sim racers will have the opportunity to sample the striking Vanwall Vandervell LMH in rFactor 2 on our many laserscanned circuits, putting the new car through its paces in an array of different driving conditions, and getting that important first taste of how this new breed of car will behave in a racing environment within the simulation.
We’ve been incredibly excited to watch this one develop, and the results of all that work have produced a wonderful car to look at, and one that’s even better once you get it out on the circuit!
Q4 2022 Announcements so Far
This is an exciting adventure for rFactor 2, and with such an iconic and historic name as Vanwall Vandervell, the introduction of this car is a very exciting time for the simulation – one we cannot wait to let you try out for yourself once the car releases this November! A perfect match for the Bahrain International Circuit, previously announced, Q4 2022 is already looking like another great content drop for rFactor2!
