rFactor 2's BTCC hybrid system detailed

With the announcement of the Honda Civic Type R BTCC car heading to rFactor 2 later this month, and the near-completion of the grid, developer Studio 397 has detailed the upcoming hybrid feature.

This was integrated into the real-world British Touring Car Championship for the 2022 season, but while most of the cars and liveries from that year are available for the simulation platform, the electrification was not.

In operation, each driver has a button on the steering wheel, which when pressed in third gear or higher, activates an additional electrical boost for up to 15 seconds per lap. The time limit is reset each time you cross the start/finish line/

The extra oomph will stay there for as long as you press the button, up to the time limit. Should you let go, you must wait two seconds before re-activating.

In order to activate the system, you must assign a key under the Powertrain options, labelled ‘Activate Push 2 Pass’. To time with the launch, a new in-car LCD display has been added for the BTCC cars.

When the Q3 update lands before the end of this month, this will mark the first-ever hybrid system within rFactor 2.
