There are some more tweaks and changes coming to mainly Group 5 cars with RaceRoom Update 0.9.0.962 released to download now. And it should also stop yellow flags from appearing so often if cones or parts of cars end up on the circuit.
It’s good to see Sector3 Studios continuing to tweak some of my favourites in game, as the retro selection are some of the best examples in racing sims. And they’ve definitely been productive recently, with one big update and two smaller patches in May, along with new cars, tracks and liveries.
It really feels like the game development side of sim racing has kicked up a notch to make the most of the current higher level of public interest in virtual motorsport. And without some of the issues that have dogged the celebrity and pro eSports side of things.
