rFactor 2

rFactor 2 Online week 9 reaches the sim at a crucial time. With the longevity of Motorsport Games still up for debate, the coming weeks of rFactor 2 content will be important for the sim’s survival.

Week 9 has landed and brings a wealth of new content with the highly anticipated debut of the intermediate F3 series, starting at Monza. Alongside that, the Formula E GEN3 DLC also makes its debut at the partnering test circuit.

rFactor 2 Online has been up and running since the beginning of October. However, if you are new to the fray, let us catch you up on what rFactor 2 Online is and how to get started.

Intermediate Races – Every 2 Hours

The intermediate races are getting more and more popular as the weeks progress—the debuting F3 sprint series is a welcomed addition to the open-wheel calendar. To follow them, the return of the Porsche Regional Trophy at VIR is the highlight of this week’s schedule.
