Watch our Automobilista CART Extreme Mod video review to check out whether it’s worth your racing time and effort. We cover all the cars and info you’ll need to add the extra content, which means you can enjoy the full field of the 1998 CART season.
That year saw Alex Zanardi crowned champion, with Tony Kanaan becoming rookie of the year. And you can enjoy the full field of 28 cars, with the chassis manufacturers Reynard, Lola, Swift and Penske powered by engines from Honda, Ford, Mercedes and Toyota.
The CART Extreme Mod was actually created back in 2009 for rFactor, but has evolved with new features developed by Patrick Giranthon. So you get everything originally included, but also improved physics and sound, better graphics, and other racing dynamics such as flat spots and picking up dirt.
Sit back and let our new contributor, and experienced league racer Daniel Faas. He’s been sim racing since 1999, and is currently running across Assetto Corsa, rFactor 2, Automobilista and iRacing. So he knows a thing or two about PC sim racing! Daniel is also a big Indycar fan, so enjoys competing on the open wheelers.
As you’ll discover, the Automobilista CART Extreme mod provides some enjoyable driving challenges. And Automobilista provides a good platform for the modification.
