    Cool vid and music =D, looks like some nice additions!

  • Maurice Böschen

    where do you see 2 different BMW’s? I can only see the M3 GT2 car…

    • Tóth Balázs

      then watch the video again, lol. you’ll see an E30 in bastos colours.

    • Anonymous

      The E30 is clearly there, coolest of the lot.

    Am i the only one who doesn’t even care this thing exists now that AC is 1 step closer to release?

      The hillclimb with classic racecars will still be awesome fun, as long as AC does not have such tracks this title will have a place on my hard drive.

      • Alessio

        Have you tried the BMW Judd on the Hill climb? It sucks. I don’t think I’d like to spend any more money and in return receive disappointment.

      • Anonymous

        How does it suck? I think its pretty enjoyable, but perhapse im such a sucker for sound that i forgive other elements. For me physics is no 1 then sound is no 2 and 3…

    • gt3rsr

      This title’s been one big disappointment since the date of its announcement. Sounds are good, the rest is… meh.

    • nameless

      Its fun, I think the engine has potential but you can’t expect much depth from a free2play game. As soon AC or rf2 reach gold, there will be no reason to stick with R3E.

    • Anonymous

      In my Book you are; as I have room for this, AC, rF2 (which I really find disappointing at this time) pCARS, and even SRW! I enjoy them all for what they offer, I don’t expect all of them to be the same, and I support them all!

      • Anonymous

        You don’t expect them all to be the same, but they will come with the same cars & the same tracks, if only some came with more street circuits, like forza or gt5….one can only dream 🙂

    • Jim. C

      I don’t care for this either. GTR3 on the other hand….

      • Marco Hooghuis

        …does not exist.

  • Ernie

    I wonder if all these cars are buyable stuff only, or whether Simbin will add 1-2 new cars for free. For now the free content is very sparse.

    • Mikko

      “Free 2 race”… m’kay.. but you have to buy all the content? Isn’t it a bit misleading. Get the game free but in order to play it, you have buy the content (cars & tracks). Or is there some free content in the actual release?
      Also.. why are they showing the game as a drifting game? 🙂

  • Alejandro Ramirez

    I’ve had it with R3E. I posted on the beta forums with a problem and they just plain ignored me and another guy who had the same issue.

    I got admitted in the closed beta together with another guy from Colombia, we live in the same city and have the same ISP. Neither of us could even register an account because we weren’t able to open the game portal due to an issue with our network settings. We asked SimBin to help us and to tell us what exactly should we tell to our crappy ISP (because our ISP can’t do crap for customer service). Now, the beta forums don’t even load but last time I checked SimBin had ignored us for almost 15 days.

    You ask us for our help as testers yet deny our help and let us in the dark? Sure, Latin America might be a small market but this is plain rude…

      Hi Alejandro, the open beta began on January 29th. Have you tried to register at since then?

      If you still are unable to access the portal, please email support at [email protected]. I can’t guarantee a solution if the problem is related to your ISP, but we’ll do our best to help.

      • Alejandro Ramirez

        I very much appreciate your answer Marcus. I know that the Beta is open already, but the site doesn’t load either as I detailed in the thread I had in the forums. Me (username: CarBastard) and the other guy I was talking about (username: andresavilla, he created the thread) have tried all we could think of but sadly J.F Chardon only answered a couple of times and didn’t bother any further. We’re sure it’s most likely our ISP the one that’s at fault, but we need your help to determine where because, after all, you’re the experts and we’re barely tech-savy consumers.

        Later tonight I’ll send an e-mail to the adress you just told me and I’ll tell Andres to do the same. Hopefully, we can (finally) find a solution together because our ISP, as utter crap as it is, is the most widely used in South America and that could hurt the impact R3E could have in this region.

        Kind regards.

      • andrescol

        hi, i´m the user called andrescol that alejandro toll you guys with the same problem, all the time when i try to go to i get the residential gateway interface, using my current ISP called CLARO, if i try to load this page using hotspot shield software connected i´m able to load the site without the residential gateway problem, and using other ISP (called ETB) in my familiy house i am able to get this page directly without the hotspot shield,
        The BIG PROBLEM is when i try to run the game, with or without the hotspot shield (and with all the game updates including the last one) ALWAYS GET THE ERROR CODE “0” CERO cant connect to server so i was never able to run the game.

      • Alejandro Ramirez

        Marcus, I sent an e-mail to that adress but it bounced back. Any other e-mail adress I can write to?

      • Anonymous

        Hi Alejandro, when you mailed that address you should have received a mail from the help desk telling you that a ticket has been created.

        Please try mailing me directly at [email protected]. It would be helpful if you could forward that bounced message along with details about the problem you experience with accessing the portal.

      I have to say, that I’ve had an issue and emailed R3E and they responded within 12hrs. Also, I’ve had many emails between the R3E suport and myself. I hope they get your issue resolved.

  • Professional Operator

    Sounds are very very important. Graphic is not everything. R3E have the best sounds on the market.

    So even if AC is the biggest sim out there, I’m still very interested in R3E.

    Do not close yourself to a single sim. There’s place for booth.

    • Marco Hooghuis

      Agree! Most sims have their own (dis)advantages. If you count sims out because you’re ‘loyal’ the only one who’s missing out is you!

  • eifionevans

    This really needs AI and multiplayer racing before I’m coming back to it.

    • Rene Yves Jean-charles

      same for me ; im waiting for that

      • Hobbs77

        Same here, so it’s GTR3 or bust!

    This is why I don’t like their model, and will be supporting, Assetto corsa, Pcars & rFactor 2, don’t have to worry about the service going down, because they include offline play with Ai’s, and no internet required to play single player mode.

    • Pavel Drandiiski

      Just a reminder that pCARS does not have offline play.

      • Anonymous

        Really, so I have to be connected to the internet to play single player Pcars?

      • pez2k .

        pCARS currently has online authentication on startup to prevent leaks and ensure that the user is a valid member. This is purely for security during development as it currently has no copy protection. An internet connection is only required for that single check each startup (and if and when you want to play online or submit leaderboard times, obviously).

        It’s not yet been decided what copy protection the final game will use, but anything that requires an internet connection for normal usage of the game is unlikely.

        Thank you for clearing that up 🙂 would have been a disappointment if it was the case.

    • Marco Hooghuis

      Requiring internet for usage is a very big disadvantage indeed. Not to mention the amount of people you’re neglecting this way. Those numbers are higher than you might think.

  • Mr.None

    i wanna multiplayer/ai races. i will not buy cars/tracks to play only hotlaps

  • nameless

    P4/5 Competizione. well, now there’s no doubt for me that GTR 3 is pretty much vaporware. The shot of that car (released long time ago) was the only thing I believed could be GTR 3 material.

    • Anonymous

      I think GTR3 will happen, but my theory is that GTR3 was in the works until this torrent of sims we have now was starting to flow, and simbin put a hold on GTR3 not to compete with so many fresh titles.

      • pez2k .

        Purely speculation, but if it was intended to be a simulation of a full real-world series like GTR1 and 2 then GTR3 would need quite a decent budget to cover the licensing. A microtransaction-based title like R3E provides Simbin with an ongoing revenue stream with which they can plan and develop future products.
        I think R3E could even be potentially more profitable than GTR3, there must be some decent money in F2P sims for three seperate companies to spot and aim at the gap in the market at the same time (Simraceway, Simbin and SMS).

      • Anonymous

        pcars is not f2p

      • pez2k .

        I know, but SMS’ original intention was to make a F2P sim with microtransactions as Simraceway and Simbin now have.
