RACE TIME: A new competition system is on the way also

Once complete, the racers will be ranked by a local rating system to determine who was the fastest overall across all the time slots.

This means that, soon, players will be able to compete in rFactor 2 every single day!

The studio has a number of plans for the future, all of which we like the look of.
