The track has entered final testing and will be available soon, below are previews that show off the Brabham BT20 Formula 1 car that is now officially announced as well.

    Going in the right way with the new update, and now with Monza! Keep going ISI.

  • gt3rsr

    I hate you ISI. You’ll ultimately force me to buy the rF2 anyway. Still waiting for the final version tho…

    • Juhan Voolaid

       rF2 is like no-brainer to buy. The price is cheep for this game.

    Ive never really understood the love affair with monza and lemans. I find them long and boring, but thats a minority opinion, i know. Id be happier to see some different tracks like estoril or paul ricard. How about montreal or zolder as well. Im happy for the ones that enjoy monza tho 🙂

      Hmm….

      Monza, the realization of what speed is.
      Le Mans, the realization of what strength is.

      Strength + Speed = The epiphany of what racing is all about.

      You could probably add (Monaco=grip) to that ‘equation’ to reach a finer result, however not realizing why you’re behind the wheel of a race-car in the first place makes me understand why you wrote what you just wrote.

      No negative intentions meant, more in a sense of ‘when you get the whole picture’ you can really enjoy any track/event that you try to simulate. 🙂

         Maybe he prefers a track that has both strength and speed and not just one of those ingredients with the other missing.

      Sorry if I consider you noob but, have you tried those “long and boring” tracks with a car that has lots of power and little grip, ie. a car that Should be raced on these tracks. Obviously with something like modern gt1 the old monza would be boredom fest, but with 60s F1 there are several ultra-high speed corners which always scare me in rf1!

      • Nathan Robinson

        If you consider over 1000 organized races with rfactor, iracing and race 07 a noob than thats fine. Ive done 2 hr endurance events with the enduracers p1 at both monza and lemans and both were agonozingly boring. I think i even pulled over and quit the one at monza. Im sorry to upset you, i just dont like them and they get raced too often which means i have to miss events. I dont care too much about strength and speed, i would say stamina and speed tho as you dont need to be a tough guy to race a c a r. I prefer more rythm and flow 🙂

        I’m partially with you Nathan, I hate the modern Monza, can’t see the fascination with it either. I do love a bit of Lemans though, hustling old and new LMP/GT cars through the Porsche curves and slipstreaming down the Mulsanne is quite a feeling. I could see how other people may find it boring, as for quite literally 1/3rd the track there isn’t much to do in most situations other than to stay awake. I think the size of the participating grid and racing at night can also add to the excitement factor there.

        I’ve never driven the 1966/old version of Monza (surprisingly) so I’ll reserve judgment there.

        there are experienced noobs.. just saying lol.  🙂

        you should try pcars Rouen .. it is pretty fun.

        Sadly,  pcars Rouen is much too wide and extremely inaccurate, losing a lot of the fun in my opinion as it means a lot can be taken flat.

        How does him not loving Monza and LeMans make him a noob ? 

      • Anonymous

        I didn’t want to say he must be noob, just wanted to say he might be noob IF he only drove these tracks with modern cars. That’s 0% experience. Or try modern F1 on the old spa, theres nothing more boring. With the 60s cars on the other hand…
        On tracks like these it is very easy to do a “decent” lap because you are on throttle most the time, but every tenth of sec you want to shake it becomes exponentially harder and more dangerous. So winning on “easy” tracks like these is paradoxically the hardest, as everyone goes fast.

      agree, though 67 Monza is a great track in GPL, and hopefully in rf2 too.

      I can’t understand why people love Le Mans tho – dragstrip.

    • Anonymous

      History, as well as being relatively easy to drive.

      If someone were to build Monza, Monaco, or La Sarthe from scratch in the modern age, they would be called a goat patch, random collection of chicanes, and uninspired in that order, but the storied past supplies the charm.

        I don’t understand, from a spectators stand point I love Le Mans and modern Monza, almost any of the old F1 tracks in fact 60’s-90’s era(Spa, Hockenheim, Kyalami, Suzuka etc..), even ones that have been castrated like Monza. 
        What I abhor is the modern CAD  tracks in random Asian countries. No soul, no consideration for overtaking opportunities (ie double backing corners resulting in one line… easy to defend), massive runoffs for safety, just vile-boring affairs. Bahrain and Shanghai are dreadful, dreadful tracks. The old tracks that were designed by hand and dictated to by location were and remain to this day, far more exciting as a spectator and a sim racer. But I guess each to their own.

        I appreciate this post bakkster, im american so i dont have the history of watching events at these venues. Im not saying that people shouldnt like them, just that i dont understand why they do. This helps me understand some 🙂

    • Matt Orr

      Le Mans of today is sooooo much better than it was in the day. The one and perhaps only circuit where adding in chicanes has improved it. The pre chicanes version is fine and all, but those two chicanes and the “new” back half of the circuit make it amazing.

    • Nathan Robinson

      Wtf does iracing have to do with this article? Is irenting supposed to be funny, hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, not really. This is for rfactor 2. If you dont want to pay for iracing than dont, i dont care, and no need to announce it either cuz i doubt anyone else cares either. We get it, iracing cost money and you are leasing it, move on now 🙂

      • Skara Koska

        hey chillout dude! its hard to laser scan historical tracks :p it was about that…
        and i said i was kiddin…you are nervous why?

      • Nathan Robinson

        Not nervous, your post had nothing to do with rfactor 2, kidding or not, it doesnt belong here 🙂

      • Skara Koska

        Peace bro. If it doesnt belong here you too dont belong here…

        Long live our sims and monza looks great! That was missing…
