Fuji Speedway for Simbin Titles – Released

Following the rFactor release back in March 2010, Virtua_LM has released their Fuji Speedway for several Simbin titles.

Following the rFactor release back in March 2010, Virtua_LM has released their Fuji Speedway for several Simbin titles.

The iconic Japanese sports car venue is now available for download for GTR2, GT Legends & RACE07, making it available to all current Simbin titles.

Located near the famous Mount Fuji in Oyama, Japan, Fuji Speedway was opened in 1963. The track was a popular venue for sports car races as the track was part of the FIA World Sports Car Championship for Group C prototypes from 1982 to 1988.

Even though the track was slowed down with two chicanes during the 80s, speeds on the track remained very high thanks to the 1.5 kilometer main straght – The longest in motorsports. Included are the 1982, 1990 & 1993 layouts of the track as well as the 1993 bike configuration.

[toggle title=”Click for full Readme”] Virtua_LM is proud to present you with an enhanced version of the Fuji Speedway, Japan. This track, previously

created from scratch for the Prototype-C Mod (F1 Challenge 99-02) has been deeply modified to match the new
capabilities of the rFactor graphic engine.


    * 1982 / 1990 / 1993 / 1993 bike versions


    * 20th March 2010 – rFactor Version V1.00
    * 20th November 2011 – GTR2/GT-Legends/Race 07 Versions V1.00

    Thanks Virtua_LM. 🙂

    These are the real Fuji Speedway- Tilke’s is just a shadow (and a very opaque one).

    I’m glad to see this fantastic track’s available for Simbin games too. I love it in rFactor, but it feels strange having it released now for Simbin’s games, when I’ve been enjoying it in rFactor for so long… Maybe it’s just me.

    “… thanks to the 1.5 kilometer main straght – The longest in motorsports”  In good fun, I would like to challenge that claim.  The straight at BIR is >1mi….followed by a nearly flat out turn 1.  Brutal on the car, and quite a boring stretch in a ~200hr Subaru, honestly. 😉  I remember the days when the Superbikes had it on the calendar, they were flat out (180+) through turn 1 and 2.

      Yeah, and the mulsanne at Le Mans was even longer before they added the two chicanes. It goes from one end of the track all the way to the other.
