rFactor 2 update adds fixes for BTCC and Formula Pro cars 

rFactor 2 update adds fixes for BTCC and Formula Pro cars 

rFactor 2’s latest hotfix addresses minor issues with the Infiniti and Toyota BTCC cars, as well as the Formula Pro single-seater

Studio 397 has today (21st July) released an update to rFactor 2, bringing several fixes for the Infiniti Q50, Toyota Corolla GR Sport and Formula Pro cars.  

Separate to the recent July 2022 Release Candidate build, this hotfix solves a few small issues in a year that has seen an impressive breadth of quality additions – including licensed BTCC and IndyCar content. 

The hotfix has been released to tidy up some of the sound, AI and graphics issues users have experienced since the largely successful release of the two BTCC cars. The Formula Pro – as used in the Formula Pro and Formula Challenge – also receives some attention. 

The pace of AI-controlled Toyota and Infiniti cars has been given a much-needed boost, as even on the highest level of AI speed (120%) I was commonly still well over one second a lap faster at Brands Hatch Indy using high fuel and hard tyres.

The Infiniti-driving AI have also undergone intensive training, bringing themselves closer to the level of the Toyota drivers – presumably after attending a short tutorial at the Ash Sutton School of Race Pace. 

The adjustments to AI lap times also arrive with minor sound and graphical tweaks, plus the much-requested update to tyre sidewall colours depending on the compound used. 

The V10-engined Formula Pro car receives small fixes to its recently upgraded soundtrack, with brakes and external sounds in cockpit view given a touch-up.
