The Brazilian circuit Autódromo José Carlos Pace, more commonly known as Interlagos, is coming soon to PC sim racing platform RaceRoom Racing Experience.
A teaser social media post by the RaceRoom accounts showcases a picture of the Ayrton Senna mural painted on the building at the venue’s pitlane entry, shared 28 years to the day that the three-time Formula 1 world champion tragically passed away at Imola.
The venue will be used by F1 later this year, 11th-13th November, and is also known for holding Stock Car Pro Series and Copa Truck races. It’s also available for, or included within, titles such as iRacing, Automobilista 2 and Gran Turismo 7.
Contemporary single seater
Also in the image is a blurred shot of a new car for RaceRoom. Given a closer inspection of the image, and the F1 heritage of the venue – first holding a Grand Prix in 1973 – it would be befitting that it was an open-wheeler inspired by the premier motorsport category.
Back in May 2021, head of developer KW Studios – formerly Sector3 – Jean-Francois Chardon posted to the official platform forum about future updates and content. This included a new user interface, the Opel Astra TCR car and revised force feedback.
He also hinted at a new single-seater racing car with the image below.
RaceRoom has the option of an older-specification single-seater, the Formula RaceRoom X-17, plus the fictionalised IndyCar-aping Formula RaceRoom US.
This new follows a busy 2022 for far for the free-to-play simulation, following the addition of the DTM 2021 car pack, 2021 WTCR car pack, TT Circuit Assen and Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Could it be that a year later such a vehicle will be headed to RaceRoom? We hope to hear more, soon.
