What Are You Racing This Weekend?

What Are You Racing This Week.jpg
With so many sims offering new or improved content in recent weeks, we want to hear where you are currently spending your sim racing time.

The amount of high-quality sim racing content we have available to us currently could almost be seen as an embarrassment of riches. There isn't enough time in most of our lives to learn and enjoy the abundance of content that we're presented with in our shared hobby.

Continuing our Have Your Say series, we want to hear what content has risen above the rest for you. Amidst the seemingly limitless options, where are you spending your sim racing time these days?

Here are some, though of course not all, of the content options currently grabbing headlines in the sim racing community:

rFactor 2's BTCC

The British Touring Car Championship was supposed to come to us in the form of a complete game, but what we got instead was a DLC offering for rFactor 2. And it is fantastic. Studio 397 seems to have captured the wheel-to-wheel, curb-launching appeal of the series with just two cars and two new tracks.

Automobilista 2's Improved GT and Prototype Cars

Two years after launch, Reiza Studios is still hard at work bring significant updates to AMS2. Among the changes brought to the sim in version 1.3.6.1 were noticeable updates to the tire feel in many of the more popular car classes in the title. GT3, GT4, Porsche Cup and DPi were among the cars affected by these changes, and the community response has been overwhelmingly positive.

Assetto Corsa's Miami International Autodrome

The perpetual stream of content for Assetto Corsa gives us the opportunity to drive the latest cars and tracks making headlines in the real world of motorsport. This was evident recently as RaceDepartment member Pyyer released and updated the Miami International Autodrome Assetto Corsa mod to mirror the real F1 action this past weekend.

Let us know on Twitter @RaceDepartment or in the comments below where you are choosing to spend the majority of your sim racing time this weekend. Whether it's any of the above options, other new cars or tracks, or older sim racing content.

As I don't know yet which track we will be racing on next Wednesday's AC Club race, because our host @HF2000 is on vacation (lucky him!) I think I'll have some FM7 career or online race, or some casual multiplayer on PC2 or AC, or next championship race in ACC. Actually, I don't even know where to start from!

That reminded me... I'm travelling for work tomorrow and staying away until Tuesday. I need to find time to do a couple og D-license races before I leave :p
 
This weekend I am busy, but recently have been driving a mix of Richard Burns Rally RallySimFans and rFactor 1 V8 Supercars (V8 Factor Unleashed 2012, working on a trackpack with optimized AI). Also hoping to race ALMS multiclass with AI with Enduracers Endurance Series cars in rF1 at Mid Ohio, Sebring, or Laguna Seca with the AI Improvement Plugin, which makes faster class AI overtake slower classes realistically (can't wait to try this!).
