Starting 2010, Formula One will be leaving Silverstone and hold the British Grand Prix at Donington Park. To accommodate motorsport’s main event, an extensive overhaul to the tracks layout and facilities is needed. To simulate what the new Donington will look like, an official virtual version for rFactor has been made.
You can check out some screenshots of the track below, showing the new layout and buildings around the track. According to f1fanatic.co.uk, the track is planned to be released next week, giving rFactor racers a huge advantage over real F1 drivers who have to wait for another one and a half years to race on the new track.
There’s no word on who is responsible for creating the track, it is very good news to see rFactor being used in such a high-profile promotion effort though.
