Image Space Incorporated has released a new track for their rFactor 2 simulation, introducing Mountain Peak Speedway.
Sim racers with an excellent memory might remember the fictional race track to appear in one of the first rFactor 2 previews back in the day.
Since then, ISI has brushed up the track and decided to release it for everyone’s enjoyment, despite not quite being up to their latest track tech.
The versatile multi-purpose racing facility comes with no less than seven different layouts:
nfield Road course – 3.652Km/2.269Miles
This 2.3-mile road course uses both the oval and infield. Exiting the oval just after the start/finish line, you race behind the pit complex and parallel to the backstretch, before heading back towards the pits, exiting in turn two of the oval, using that to get back around and finish the lap.
Speedway – 2.362Km/1.468Miles
This tricky 1.5-mile oval consists of two major turns, and while the backstretch is relatively easy, the front ‘straight’ will do it’s best to throw you into the outside wall… Practice – a lot.
Legends Oval – 0.44Km/0.27Miles
This flat and short oval is way more fun than you would expect. In a low powered car, it can provide a lot of side-by-side action.
Kart Oval – 0.353Km/0.219Miles
In lower powered karts, this oval is easily flat out. In karts of different configurations, there may be quite a lot of skill involved not to necessarily lap it, but to deal with traffic instead!
Kart Long – 1.0Km/0.62 Miles
A nice flowing kart track with a couple of technical corners you need to learn quickly. Not a very high speed track.
Kart Short – 0.66Km/0.41Miles
This layout can feel quite frantic, especially in traffic. Laps seem to tick off very quickly. Very nice flow to the lap once you figure it out!
Kart Reverse – 1.0Km/0.62 Miles
This is the reverse layout of the Long configuration and feels a little more high speed. It has quite a nice flow and seems to be a little less technical.
