Sector3 Studios deployed a new update for their RaceRoom Racing Experience title and added a new WTCC circuit to their track portfolio. The Japanese Twin-Ring Motegi circuit is now available in the RaceRoom store for €4.98.
Twin Ring Motegi is a motorsport race track located at Motegi, Japan. Its name comes from the facility having two race tracks: a 2.493-kilometer (1.549 mi) oval and a 4.8-kilometer (2.98 mi) road course. It was built in 1997 by Honda, as part of Honda’s effort to bring the IndyCar Series to Japan, helping to increase their knowledge of American open-wheel racing.
The Twin-Ring Motegi circuit also hosted the FIA WTCC Series, Formula Nippon, Super GT, Formula 4 and MotoGP, making it one of the most popular tracks on the Asian continent.
The RaceRoom version of Twin-Ring Motegi features 3 layouts.
Road Course: 4.8 km
