A new track is now available! Joining the list of WTCC venues comes Twin-Ring Motegi. This track, located in Japan, was on the calendar of the final three seasons of the FIA WTCC series: 2015, 2016 and 2017.

This is not all, we’re also bringing a complete overhaul of various cars. The biggest change being a big merger between GTR 1 and GTR X car classes. They’re now upgraded to our highest physics quality level and closely balanced together.

For those of you who were around in 2012 when RaceRoom was in open beta, you’ll remember the Nissan GTR GT1. After all these years sitting in a dark virtual garage, this car has now been unleashed and added to the GTR 1 class as well.

The Pagani Zonda R was also upgraded and now lives in its own single-make cup class with many liveries available.

Another car received some physics upgrades: the Formula RaceRoom Junior@Alex Hodgkinson , our physics designer, has treated you with his own version of what this car should handle like, all based on the data and experience collected when he was racing such cars a few years ago.

On the sound side, we’re improving as well! @Anthony Monteil , our sound engineer, has been busy delivering many new reasons for our ears to rejoice! Read about it all in detail below!
