More than six years after making the initial announcement, the Live for Speed Development Team has finally released Rockingham Motor Speedway for their simulation!
Announced back in September 2009, Rockingham is the first-ever laser-scanned track to be added to Live for Speed.
Located in Northhamptonshire, Rockingham Motor Speedway is best known as the UK’s host of two CART Grand Prix in 2001 and 2002. Aside from the 1.47 mile oval configuration that was used by CART, the track also includes a 1.94 mile road course and twelve other configurations used for various events.
