rFactor 2’s Competition System introduces BTCC content to multiplayer, with Season 3’s ROTS set to take place at Laguna Seca using the IR-18.
Kicking off in February this year, the Competition System for rFactor 2 offers a playlist of races in a similar fashion to Gran Turismo 7 and RaceRoom – minus official rankings. With both paid and free content available in the schedule, there’s enough variety to keep things interesting, especially with the addition of the popular new BTCC content.
The Touring Car Challenge gives players the chance to race the new Toyota Corolla GR Sport and Infiniti Q50 at Donington Park, Silverstone and Brands Hatch, with further trips to Zandvoort, Portland and Virginia International Raceway.
But not all the races will use paid DLC. The Rookie Cup and Open Wheel Sprint series continue to use free cars and tracks, with the Rookie Cup taking advantage of the Enduracers Modding Team’s Alpine A110 mod.
Additionally, the Open Wheel Sprint races use Studio 397’s very own Tatuus FT-60 single-seater. Used in the Toyota Gazoo Racing championship in New Zealand, the Tatuus can be run in events at Hampton Downs and the Indianapolis Road Course, among others.
To top things off, Season 3’s Race of the Season (ROTS) will be set at the newly released WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. Drivers will enjoy five weeks of hot lap qualifiers to try and seal a place on the grid for the main ROTS race.
Hoping to emulate Tomasz Wach’s commanding victory on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Season 2’s edition of ROTS, successful qualifiers will use the INDYCAR IR-18 this time around.
Players will need to take inspiration from real-world IndyCar drivers such as Romain Grosjean and Álex Palou to help tame the sandy confines of Laguna Seca and set their fastest lap time. The top 30 qualifiers will appear in Season 3’s ROTS broadcast, live on the Traxion.GG YouTube channel.
