rFactor 2's next major update is just around the corner. Ahead of the much-anticipated Q3 2022 Content Drop launching next week, Studio 397 is giving us a first taste of new content coming in the update.
World Wide Technology Raceway coming to rFactor 2
Studio 397 has announced that next week’s Q3 2022 Content Drop will add a new laser-scanned circuit to rFactor 2: World Wide Technology Raceway. If you have never heard of this circuit and don’t live in the US, you’re probably not alone.
Based in Madison, Illinois, and formerly known as the Gateway Motorsports Park, the 1.25-mile oval circuit hosts the NASCAR Cup Series, as well as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NTT IndyCar Series.
There is also a 1.6-mile road course within the infield of the oval layout that hosts the Formula Drift Series along with a quarter-mile drag strip used for the annual NHRA Midwest Nationals event.
As part of the Q3 2022 Content Drop, the oval and road course configurations will be added to rFactor 2 next week.
Q3 2022 Content Drop release date
rFactor 2 players can race at the World Wide Technology Raceway when the Q3 2022 Content Drop is released on 8 August.
While Studio 397 hasn’t provided any other details about the update, the July 2022 Release Candidate previews new features coming in Q3 2022 Content Drop.
The update will introduce Real Road 2.0, an evolution of rFactor 2’s dynamic track conditions. Based on factors such as weather conditions, cloud cover, and cars warming up the track surfaces, track temperatures change in real-time in Real Road 2.0.
rFactor 2's July 2022 Release Candidate also improved the ABS and traction control simulation. These changes should carry over to the Q3 2022 Content Drop.
