Competition Company deployed the August Beta Update for the Rennsport racing simulator, including a new car and track, new features, improvements, and bug fixes.
Alongside a not-so-serious, yet challenging figure-8 track named 8ETA, the new update also adds the lightweight, high-performance Praga R1 sportscar to the Rennsport car portfolio.
The Praga R1 is a sportscar manufactured by Praga Racing who are based in Prague, Czech Republic. This race-ready customer track car has a full carbon body and a honeycomb composite monocoque that successfully passed the FIA crash tests. The car features race-specific safety equipment such as an integrated fire extinguisher system, HANS system support, helmet side support, and six-point seat belts.
The Praga R1 is powered by a RenaultSport derived 2.0L 4-cylinder engine delivering 210 hp to the rear wheels via a Hewland JFR, sequential six-speed transmission. Weighing only 572kg, the R1 has a power-to-weight ratio of 356 hp/ton.
