A legendary new race car has been added to SimRaceWay as the free to play racing title now features the Ford GT40 MK1.

Build by Lola & Ford, the GT40 has become one of the most iconic cars in the history of racing. All the tradition comes with quite a price tag though as the car sells for $20 within SimRaceWay.

The base content of SimRaceWay is free for everyone to try, giving players access to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, the BMW M1 and the Formula 3 car as well as several tracks. Additional content is available for purchase with prices ranging from a few cents to several dollars.

The title puts an emphasis on online racing, using a real-time skill matching system to offer close racing. Like SimRaceWay’s past website that was based on rFactor & other simulations, the new title will again be offering paid online races where players have to pay an entry fee to compete, free online events are available as well.

    I’m still confused by the pricing. I find it hard to spend $12 on cars in iracing, but $20 for a car in a service with a lot fewer people in seems bananas.

      It is bananas.

      They don’t understand how competition works, apparently. I don’t see many people saying “You know, I like iRacing but what I’d really like is a less developed user base, online presence and generally a worse game in every way. Oh, and I’d like to pay more than double the price for the really good cars!”

      The McLaren MP4/4 costs $38, people….$38 for one car in a bad game.

        It seems to me that if they don’t do anything else they still put out a new car every friday . The last 4 cars have cost $32.00 $9.00 $30.00 & $20.00 . What other racing game has ever been able to pump out a new car every week & or charge the prices SRW does ? To be fair prices start at around a quarter & go UP . Yet they say they are still in beta .

        Is it still basically paying for rFactor1 addons?

        Do they really expect people to pay $100/month for their content? The idea of a real car value-based pricing model is completely illogical. It doesn’t cost them 20x as much to faithfully reproduce a Ford Focus as it does to reproduce some rare race car. It’s not like they’re allowed to take out race-winning Ford GT40s for hours and hours of testing and retesting, data scanning and stress testing. They make educated decisions about how a car should handle based on asking drivers, videos, available car data, etc.

        If I were looking for a reasonable rate I’d say the boring cars like a Ford Focus or Mazda Miata would cost $1 each and cars like the McLaren MP4/4 would cost about $5 depending on if it really is head and shoulders above a freely available rFactor mod.

    The 8-year old GT Legend’s GT40 looks better and you can buy it and the 30 odd other cars it contains for £7.50. I’m not against paying for content but I really don’t get SimRaceWay’s business model.

    Just do some good time-trials and races, you can earn that 20,- in a week or 2 easily.
    Or buy many other less exclusive cars for that same price.
    The most expensive cars are free to drive for one or 2 days in online competitions.
    Every week there is another supercar to drive for free.
