How to Find Automobilista 2's Easter Egg at Cleveland

Automobilista 2 Easter Egg 01.jpg
Reiza Studios snuck in a tunnel system to explore at the Cleveland Burke Lakefront Airport Circuit, and here is how to find it.

A number of videos have surfaced online with Automobilista 2 players exploring a tunnel system under the Cleveland circuit. This is an Easter Egg that Reiza Studios left for owners of the Racin's USA DLC to discover. Spoiler Alert: if you want to discover this on your own, don't read on.

The tunnel system takes players underground to either of two points. The first is a lighthouse, which affords you a good view of Reiza's recreation of downtown Cleveland. If you drive past the lighthouse turnoff in the tunnel system, you'll eventually come to a services building. I won't ruin it for you, but Reiza left a note for you on the counter to read and learn more about the building you're in and a bit about its history.

If you're wondering how to find this tunnel system, the good news is that it's easy to find. After exiting the pits, continue on track and round turn 5. Instead of turning right for turn 6, continue north toward a cargo crane. You'll need to cross some grass, then you should find service roads. Follow the service roads until you reach a T-corner. Turn left at the T, then you will be nearing a ship and the cargo crane. Drive onto the dock and turn left, which will be the tunnel entrance.

When the tunnel widens, stay left to access the lighthouse. If you want to reach the second building, keep to the right and after a long straight tunnel you'll wind your way up to the building. To read the not Reiza left us, simply enter photo mode and choose the Drone camera. You can then use WASD and your mouse to move the camera and position it above the note.

So, what's the point of the Easter Egg for sim racers? Fun. In a genre that often runs the risk of taking itself too seriously, it's nice to have a little break.

Is there an Easter Egg to help calibrate my SC Pro 2 Wheel?
Do you mean calibrate or assign axis? For calibration issues you'll need to give more details. For assigning axis, select custom wheel, then move the wheel 360° in the direction you want to assign and then back to center. If you turn it too far or are too slow you'll get the "Multiple inputs detected" error.

You can do the 90 degrees-trick. Set your DD rotation to 90 degrees. Assign the wheel. Turn it to left and directly to center again. Voila.
Thank you very much for your help. I have done this multiple times with no success. Wish it were that easy for me, but it has not been at all.

Yes, axis--sorry for the miss speak

The way I do it is starting from center line turn the wheel in the relevant direction ALL THE WAY to the stopper. Once I reach the stopper I immediately let go of the wheel and it does record the axis (the wheel usually turns a few degrees back on its own). I've done it many times reliably under the custom pre-set.
Hope it works for you too

Just as on off chance - try putting your usb to an old usb 2.0 port not a 3.0 - I have a similar issue and I find the old usb 2.0 solved my issues.

it worked for me (sc2 pro) by starting a new custom profile, try to calibrate (didnt work), restart ams2 and try to calibrate on the same profile again, then it worked.

Ok, when the REIZA boys+girls programmed such things they haven t the time to clean the bugs or have a break to charge their accus and bring (sell) us new stuff ....... (wait, wait, wait, wait, tic, tic, tic,). BUT - thx REIZA for that beauty

...you are aware that there's a difference between programmer and 3D artist, right? It's not the same people doing both.
Much rather the artist had the time to add all these eggs because the coding part of the update/DLC whatever took more time.
