The new venue has been showcased as the opening round of the Le Mans Virtual Series esports competition and is expected to be available for the platform soon.
When the Le Mans Virtual Series (LMVS) gets underway later this month, its opening round will take place at the as-yet-unreleased Bahrain International Circuit.
However, yesterday (1st September 2022), the championship‘s social media account posted four preview images of the track inside the platform – and in an advanced state of completion by the looks of it.
All the details are present and correct, with Bahrain’s sand-coloured run-off areas, BIC Tower and the obligatory LED-shod Ferris wheel bringing an air of immersion to the simulated example.
What is not known, however, is which circuit layouts will be included with the retail version of the track and when it will be released. Looking at previous rFactor 2 dates, the next update is expected around 7th November as part of a Q4 Content Drop.
Rest assured we will be on hand to report on any official announcements from the team at Studio 397 as and when they happen. Are you looking forward to the Bahrain International Circuit coming to rFactor 2? What is your favourite layout? Let us know in the comments below.
