rFactor 2 – Formula Two Car Testing in Progress
This May, Image Space Incorporated announced a licensing deal with the FIA Formula Two Championship that will be featured in rFactor 2.
Back then, the studio promised a close cooperation with Formula 2 Two Chief Engineer James Goodfield to ensure a realistic virtual version of the series’ JPH1B race car.
Following lots of hard work Goodfield, current Formula Two championship leader Luciano Bacheta was invited to fine-tune the car using Darren Turner’s Base Performance simulator and shared his impressions afterwards.
It’s been great to be able to help out with the development of the new rFactor2 and I was pleasantly surprised how similar it is to driving the actual F2 car. There are a few tweaks we’d like to make to ensure it’s as close to perfect as possible but I can see myself spending a lot time on rF2 when it’s released!
Below are lots of shots, showing Luciano at work with the virtual Formula Two car. Interestingly, the shots reveal the Nürburgring Grand Prix track that is currently not yet available for rFactor 2.
The track, shown in pre-2009 configuration, had already been included in rFactor 1′s base content so there’s a good chance of the iconic German venue to be made available for rFactor 2 as well.
