Formula RaceRoom US Coming Next Week – New Screenshots
Exciting news for fans of open-wheeler racing.
Sector3 Studios has confirmed that the Formula RaceRoom US car for the RaceRoom racing simulator will become available next week. The new R3E open wheeler is modeled after the Dallara Indycar as raced in the American 2016 Indycar Series Championship. While we can’t confirm it, we expect that besides the new content Sector3 will also roll out a new RaceRoom update.
To get us all excited, Sector3 Studios has released a new batch of in-game preview screenshots showing us the upcoming Formula RaceRoom US cars in action at a selection of the American racing tracks available for R3E.
The IndyCar Series is the premier open-wheel racing league in the United States. The Indy car name derived as a result of the genre’s fundamental link to the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race (often referred to as the “Indy 500”), one of the most popular Motorsport events in the world.
The series initially raced exclusively on oval tracks, as the series was founded partly in response to the increasing prominence of road and street courses on the CART schedule. In 2005, the series abandoned its unofficial ovals-only stance, and added three road–street course events. By 2009, the series had a roughly 50/50 split of ovals and road/street courses. Presently, the series currently runs one-third of its schedule on ovals and the rest on road and street circuits
