rFactor 2 – Lime Rock Reality Check Video

Image Space Incorporated’s Tim Wheatley has created a reality check video of rFactor 2′s new Lime Rock Park track.

The brand new track was recently added to rFactor 2 with the release of Build 125.

You can see how the track compares to the real thing below, a comparison with iRacing’s version of Lime Rock can be seen here.

    Pretty impressive… Wouldn’t think it was so close to the real thing after seing the iRacing rF2 @ LRP…
    Time to update rF2 and give it a go, I’m a big fan of LRP :)

  • pez2k .

    Yes, respect to Tim Wheatley for not only standing his ground on the rF2 track being accurate to the track as it is now, but actually providing the proof in the form of a well-made video.

    And they have to work with this kind of ridiculous prejudice. “omg its not the same as the awesome laserscanend ir version, must be crap” Respect for developers like ISI

    That’s the best video I’ve seen of rFactor 2 so far. Very realistic though I suspect once blown up on your screen the graphics will disappoint here and there. Overall better than expected on lighting and believability.

    The track is, of course, now better than iRacing’s!

    Not forgetting ISI hasn’t enabled all the effects, like sun, and sun glare yet.:)

    I’d like to point that this video is particularly interesting because the field of view is practically the same on both screens which make it easier to compare the angle of each corners, size of objects and pretty much everything. congrats!

    Great improvement ISI. That’s what we expect from a serious company like you :)

    iRacing developers have a good reason to be worried now!

    Great video Tim, I also agree on the point Sim vs Sim videos are useless most of the time, other then throwing some fuel on which game is “better” discussion.

    With Sim vs Reality videos it gets a benchmark against the only thing that should count, the real thing! And as this one proofs imo it is looking good!

    Good vid,

    what I really love though is the beginning of Montoya’s sentence. “Image Space Incorporated’s Tim Wheatley”, lol this sounds like Tim Wheatley is a job, like every company could have it’s Tim Wheatley.

    Well, that’s because the track changed significantly between the versions iRacing and rFactor have. If the rFactor one looked the same as iRacing, then I would have worried they did something wrong ;)

    Ever play Portal 2?

    Tim Wheatley is a member of ISI, not a character from Portal :P

    Impressive ISI. That’s what we all expect from ISI. Keep up that great work.

    Good job Mr Wheatley.

    ISI, I think you should send Tim to Japan on a track day @ Suzuka as a treat. Don’t forget you video camera, er, I mean toothbrush.

    Suzuka and Spa 2 of the most amazing “normal” tracks in the world :), and get them in RF2 with Lime Rock or better quality :)

    Please watch your language Timpie. Not the first time, this.

    Thanks Jay. Luckily I have good video of every track I have surveyed for ISI, this was the first.

    Suzuka is something I really want. :)
