Select popular tracks have been updated on rFactor 2

Daytona, Lime Rock, Monza, Sebring and Silverstone have all been updated in the latest release from Studio 397 for rFactor 2.

While the next quarterly release for rFactor 2 isn’t due until May, there were some updates dropped on Monday (21st March) for some of the more popular tracks that needed the attention.

Daytona, Lime Rock, Monza, Sebring and Silverstone have all been tweaked in the latest update from Studio 397, and for the most part, it’s all quality of life fixes for the venues.

While Daytona, the newest track on the rFactor 2 servers, has the most fixes and attention in this update, the other four will benefit with mostly visual updates. Some of the tracks have some AI improvements while others have other necessary fixes. All in all, some necessary adjustments that could be released before the big update in May.

If you didn’t already know as well, the next season is on its way for the rFactor 2 competition system. Last night (20th March) the Race of the Season capped off the old one with a 45-minute event in the BWM M4 GT3 at Daytona, won by Turkka Hakkinen. Until the new season begins, rFactor 2 racers can enjoy the fun week at hand.

Check out all of the update notes for each track listed below. Also, it’s worth mentioning that the release stated there will be something to be surprised about next week, so we’ll keep our eyes out for that. Let us know your thoughts in the comments, and be sure to keep it pinned.
