BTCC DLC Coming to rFactor 2

BTCC for rFactor 2.jpg
BTCC cars are the latest content to be confirmed for rFactor 2, joining Donington Park and Brands Hatch as DLC releases scheduled for next month.

rFactor 2's quarterly content drop due next month is shaping up nicely.

While the corporate world surrounding Studio 397 is in apparent shambles, the developer continues to impress with their upcoming content. British Touring Cars are joining the sim as DLC in the coming weeks.

This may not have been the news BTCC fans had ultimately been looking for as compared to the prospect of a full simulator dedicated to these touring cars, but it appears this will have to suffice for the time being.

The BTCC DLC will focus on two cars for the time being, the Infiniti Q50 and Toyota Corolla GR Sport. Each will have its respective 2021 BTCC liveries. Studio 397 plans to release a 2022 update with new cars and the latest liveries later this year.

The writing may have been on the wall for this DLC, as the two other pieces of content announced for the second quarterly release in rFactor 2 were British racing circuits. Donington Park and Brands Hatch have both been confirmed for the sim. This doesn't complete the BTCC calendar, but provides more locations in which to drive these cars.

As I've said on the previous two rF2 news articles.

The BTCC-game we'll never see, arw bleeding content to rF2 :)
i believe MPG when signing for making the BTCC game they also went for the rF2 content. It would make sense. If it was only for a game they couldn't bring the content that easily to rF2 technically and legally. As they just won't have the license anymore after the contract was broken.
 
haha, didn't I said this yesterday ?
this might be something I will buy , love these kind of racing cars

rF2 isn't really my thing, but yeah, great to see this kind of content
 
Maybe there is hope we will see the full roster of IndyCar tracks, since RF2 has the IR-18 and it doesn't appear msg will be around to release the stand alone IndyCar game?
 
It should be great pack. And if new cars will follow up with standard of physics of their latest cars, they are going to be amazing to drive. Also super interesting to have battle of FWD vs RWD. I drive Corolla IRL, but I wish it was Q50 - because RWD of course haha
 
This Q2 2022 drop is going to be awesome! And I think adding this content to rF2 always has been the plan and is not because the standalone BTCC game from MSG seems to have disappeared from the radar. Good thing about MSG is that they could acquire the needed licenses for all this new 2022 content so far. Q3 content drop to throw in some Hypercars and endurance tracks maybe?:D
 
Will wait for full rooster before taking the plunge. s397 are good at not completing series then moving onto something new.
But this game really is starting to move in the right direction after so long of nothing really happening. KEEP IT UP PLEASE

Edit: don't want to be too negative.

You will be waiting a while then. Only two cars will be released in May, then in August some unknown number more. How many teams use the Infinity & Toyota? I would suspect all of those will be available in the Q2 release.
