F1 1982 for rFactor – First Preview
Lula K is working on bringing one of the missing 80s seasons of Formula One racing to rFactor by announcing his F1 1982 mod.
Based on Pedros 1982 mod for Grand Prix 4, his mod will be made in collaboration with BlackMagic and will feature scratch-made physics to bring this exciting era of F1 racing to the simulation. Below is a first preview, showing the two turbo-powered Renault cars in action.
1982 was a troublesome year for Formula One as both Gilles Villeneuve and Ricardo Paletti died during the course of the season. 1982 also saw the debut of mighty turbo engines and ground effect cars as Renault, Ferrari and Toleman made first use of the new technology. Williams driver Keke Rosberg clinched the series title while the Scuderia Ferrari ended up victorious in the constructors championship.
