Going back to the world of the RaceRoom Racing Experience, where some of those updates we covered last week are starting to make their way to the surface, it was announced on Tuesday that two new venues would be joining the RaceRoom service “very soon”.
Vålerbanen, based in Braskereidfoss, Norway, will be joining the sim racing service shortly with Automotodrom Brno Circuit in the Czech Republic joining after that.
Vålerbanen will release first, according to Sector 3 Studios on their forum post. This Norwegian track is home to many student drivers during most of the year, but it notably hosts an event called Gatebil, Norway’s largest amateur racing event and sports car display. To me, Gatebil looks like a Norwegian Goodwood Festival of Speed.
On top of the classes and car shows, Vålerbanen also hosted Swedish Touring Car Championship races from 2005 to 2009. The track was part of an expansion pack for RACE07 titled STCC – The Game, which was produced by SimBin, the predecessor to Sector3 Studios, which is based in Sweden. It all makes sense!
Automotodrom Brno Circuit has a deeper history in the motorsport world. This track will release on RaceRoom after Vålerbanen, and from the screenshots, this is one of the most visually pleasing venues I’ve seen in all of sim racing.
Vibrant colours winding around in the middle of a Czech forest with trees lining the interior and exterior of the circuit. This current layout has been utilized since 1987 for events in MotoGP as well as other popular GT and Touring Car races.
There is no official release date yet on either of these circuits. From the previous news, we know that there will be a plethora of updates in June such as Force Feedback reconstruction and User Interface remodeling. Stay tuned to Traxion as we continue to cover updates for RaceRoom.
