The motorcycle simulator continues to evolve as the latest TrackDayR Update 188.8.131.52 adds Pro Mode and a new MX track, along with other improvements and features.
Supermotos and larger dirt bikes were added recently in May 2022, so it’s good to see an additional circuit to play on, along with more controls for leaning when your wheels are on the ground, or in the air. And for people with my level of riding ability, there’s also a new crash system which allows for lowersides, highsides, locking the front wheel or losing traction at the rear.
Along with new ways to crash, the big news for all bikes is a new Pro Mode, which has no limit on lean angles. Which means more realism and potentially faster laps, but also more potential for mistakes. Fortunately, there’s also the ‘Newbie’ difficulty mode which keeps the previous level of assistance to help you make it around a track.
The new circuit is a fictional creation, the Israel Sand Track, which was designed by Jannik Blume.
