Image Space Incorporated has announced a major addition to their rFactor 2 simulation as the FIA Formula Two Championship will be joining the title later this year.

rFactor 2, which is currently in the open beta stage, will feature the full 2012 grid of the Formula Two Championship, one of Formula One’s main feeder series for young drivers.

Build by Williams and Yokohama-shod, the Formula Two cars are powered by 1.8 liter turbo-charged engines, putting out 500hp.

“We’ve spent many hours working with ISI to ensure we recreate the highly sophisticated and new-spec F2 car with the utmost accuracy, right down to the physics and the engine note,” Formula 2  Two Chief Engineer Goodfield. “We’re very pleased with the results and feel confident it will provide professional racing drivers, as well as amateurs, with a simulation as close to the real thing as possible.”
