RaceRoom Racing Experience – Beta Launched

Simbin has launched the closed beta of their RaceRoom Racing Experience, expanding on the teaser version that was released in September.

The closed beta adds new content to the free to play title, including three new tracks as Hockenheim, Portimao and the Lakeville Hillclimb.

In terms of cars, beta members can now try the fictional Canhard R52, the DMD P20 and the 134 Judd hill climb car build by the late Georg Plasa, adding to the Saleen S7R & Aquila CR1 Sports GT already available in the teaser.

Unfortunately, the beta is only available to selected members, click here to sign up for an invitation. Those left out can either try the teaser version here or check out plenty of preview material below.

Simbin has released some new screenshots you can check out below, furthermore some new panorama screenshots are available on their website. To round things out, a new video trailer has been released.

    Looks a little bit better than I expected.

    Based of the teaser we have already I think this will be really fun to drive having decent hill climb tracks with fast cars will be allot of fun and a nice brake from driving on normal tracks or doing rally in RBR.

    All in all I think RaceRoom fits nicely into the driving simulator space bieng something worth playing of itself.

    Don’t really get the Canhard, but it’s probably a Renault Trophy pretender?

    Hope I’ll get a key, this looks better than expected :)

      It’s a fictional rebadged Audi A1 race car concept

      It’s just for the joke.

      Bloke goes to the race track and see a guy sitting there in a Ferrari and he says “What do you do for a living?” and he replies “I work for Canhard”
      and the bloke says “I work fucking hard too, but I can’t afford a car like that!”

      Lol exactly the same as me, makes you wonder if we made it if we didn’t tell our friends :p probably not, but no good deed goes punished

    Is one of the tracks Portimao? I’m not talking about Hockenheim obviously.

    • http://twitter.com/6e66o 6e66o

      Yes, as the article above mentiones :)
      Btw Rob, its “Lakeview” not “Lakeville” Hillclimb ;)

        lol I went straight to teh video :D

  • Kendra Jacobs

    I got a code for the beta, im guessing anyone who signs up gets a code or should I feel special? lol

      feel special, I’ve not received anything! applied again tonight just in case as well.

      Well who knows what was the main criteria, maybe they need more people with certain PC specs more than people with long experience with sims, maybe vice versa, in every case just be happy :)

      • Kendra Jacobs

        Weird, I thought the Beta sign up was just some b.s. marketing stuff and really anyone who applied would be accepted. I guess I was wrong.

    Finally got the key!:)

    I have done some driving now with the “Get Real” physics and the new cars and track. Currently in 4:th place with the BMW on the hill climb and clearly room for improvement after 5-6 tries :)

    I AM IMPRESSED! :)

    The physics and handling is really(!) well implemented, I cant find anything in the handling to complain about. Its spot on! Sounds are great, graphics is excellent and it works really well in 3D as well which makes it look 5x better than any 2D sim.

    You can even drift the cars, they are snappy and grippy like they should be with slicks and down force, but with so much power and balanced chassis you can get them going sideways. Its far(!) from LFS driftable (which is great fun and based on realistic physics, but a bit too easy compared with real-life). I haven’t driven a BMW Judd 134 let alone drifted it, but I have driven and drifted many other high end cars, I think the handling experience in Race Room is very authentic.

    To me this proves that the physics and tire model is great at providing realistic handling in and outside of normal traction as well as the dynamics of steering input while the front or rear is sliding.

      Just sayin… again…. its forbiden to publish videos dude….!!! It seems some people wanna get a ban…if its good for them…

  • http://twitter.com/tcb772001 Fernando K@pel

    I AM IMPRESSED!

    Simbin has find the way again…physics, handling,cars,graphics and sound are top notch…It seems better now than pCARS… Rfactor 2 doesn´count to me ´cause the game is totally unfineshed( i know it´s beta…but….), borind and at this stage seems amadorish….Great fee and I like very much!!!

    • http://twitter.com/TheRoggan Roger

      I am also impressed, this is really good!

      Handling and vehicle dynamics is better than pCars in current state, though pCars have made a huge improvements the past month and isnt due for another 12 months it definitely has big potential to take the crown late 2013!

      rFactor 2 IMO has the reference vehicle dynamics model in rim racing so far. Need to spend more time in RRRE to see if its at the same level, but so far its very promising!

      • Kendra Jacobs

        Agree with you Roger, this is very fun indeed, and much better than current un-finished project cars.

        Although I cant play it for hours and hours without getting bored like I can with RFactor 2, GSC2012 and NKP, it is still very very fun!!

        When my friend comes over who likes racing but doesnt really play racing games much, we play Raceroom Experience now, it has replaced GTR2 as my sim for when my non-sim racing friends come over.

        Great stuff!!

  • Tombasss
