rFactor 2 – 2020 New York E-Prix Circuit Available
Studio 397 is on a roll… Only a week ago they released the Berlin E-Prix Track as part of the ABB Formula-E content for rFactor 2. Now the hard-working rF2 development team is proud to present us with yet another brand new Formula E venue in the form of the New York E-Prix circuit.
Formula E, known as ABB FIA Formula E for sponsorship reasons, is a single-seater motorsport championship that uses only electric cars. The series is promoted and owned by Formula E Holdings.
Red Hook at the Brooklyn Harbor hosted the double-header championship finale of the ABB FIA Formula E Season 17/18 as well as 18/19. With the Big Apple as a backdrop, this ePrix easily goes onto the ‘most iconic stops’-list of the championship. Take on the challenge, 2.32 km of pure street racing while enjoying a unique view of the Statue of Liberty.
The 2020 New York E-Prix track for rFactor 2 is available via the dedicated Steam page for a very modest €7,99.
To Quote Studio 397…
We’re proud to once again bring you great AAA Formula E content. Straight off the release of Berlin, released just last week, we’re on a roll so… no sleep til Brooklyn!
As a city and as an idea, New York conjures up so many cliches: it’s endlessly diverse, frantic, and always on the move. New York is the hyperactive soul of America – to put it another way, …it’s full of “energy”!
The Formula E-Prix taps into this spirit where New York becomes not just backdrop but a unique place to host world-class high-level racing, for that reason this ePrix easily classifies as one of the most iconic stops on the road to the championship.
Red Hook at the Brooklyn Harbor hosted the double-header championship finale of the ABB FIA Formula E Season 2017/18 as well as 2018/19. New York as a racing circuit is much like surviving in the city, keep your head down stay on your toes, blind turns come off high speed, and will catch you out quicker than you realize if your line is off by even a little.
As always we’ve gone to great lengths to capture the atmosphere accurately in rFactor 2. Everything from the precise terrain coloration and wear, to the objects and buildings (even the very far off ones!), are placed exactly as they are in real life – you can even see all the way out to New Jersey!
Take on the challenge, 2.32 km of pure street racing, while enjoying a unique view of yes, the Statue of Liberty. Welcome to New York!
