R3E Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course – Reality Check

A few days ago a small discussion took place here bsimracing regarding the authenticity of the Mid-Ohio track in RaceRoom Racing Experience. To aid the discussion, we went out looking for a comparison video, to check for ourselves. Sadly enough, we could not find one.

Now Sector3 resolved the problem by posting a comparison between the real and R3E version of the track. As far as we can see, and experienced, the circuit layout and details are pretty much spot on. In this Sm Racing community, we have

In this Sm Racing community, we have gotten used to the Laser Scanned tracks in both Assetto Corsa and iRacing. While these track raise the level of accuracy to a new level, it is often overlooked that a track based on map or GPS data can be just as efficient. While we do not know how the R3E version of Mid-Ohio is created, we still feel the track is a very accurate representation of the real venue.

Feel free to share your own opinion regarding, track accuracy in simulators.

RaceRoom Racing Experience or R3E for short is a Free2Play Racing Simulation. The game includes five free-to-play cars and two highly detailed tracks. Three driving models are supplied for free as well as online competitions and challenges.

The Mid-Ohio track opened in 1962. In 1982, Mid-Ohio was fitted with permanent grandstands, amphitheater-style seating, garages with spectator balconies, a five-story media and hospitality center, underground tunnels and an updated paddock area. In 1990, the track underwent a refurbishment. A new straightaway was paved through the chicane, allowing for two different track layouts, the original 2.4-mile (3.9 km) circuit, and a new 13-turn, 2.258 mile (3.634 km) circuit. In 2006, the track again underwent extensive renovation. The track and pit lane were completely resurfaced and connectors were added to the track’s famed Keyhole section to allow for three separate road course configurations.
