Watkins Glen has been added to Auto Club Revolution, the free-to-play racer from Eutechnyx. Initially one of three layouts is available to drivers, with the Short Route able to be driven straight away. Two more routes will be unlocked via the ‘Race to Release’ challenge.
When the Auto Club Revolution community reach 100,000 miles of racing on the short track, the Watkins Glen Boot and Watkins Glen Classic Boot will both be unlocked. That means 3 layouts for the New York track which was originally opened in 1948, hosting everything including F1, NASCAR and Indycar.
Recreating the track took 12 weeks using a large amount of reference pictures, telemetry data and videos to ensure everything is correct, including camber heights and the width and layout of the curbs. After adding stands for the crowds, and even portable toilets, videos of the finished circuit were then sent to Watkins Glen track officials for approval.
