BTCC 2022 Season

rFactor 2 BTCC 2022 Season update

BTCC Update | Steam Store: CLICK HERE

A free update to anyone who owns the respective 2021 BTCC car(s), the 2022 update introduces every team, driver, and livery of the 2022 British Touring Car Championship season for the cars released thus far, plus a promise to include the 2022 season liveries on the upcoming BTCC content – 32 official liveries to adorn the eight car models that make up the 2022 field.

As well as all the drivers of the current BTCC season, the 2022 update also adds a revised tyre model and full Balance of Performance across the grid, making the art of not just driving, but winning, in a BTCC car all the more exciting and enjoyable out on the track.

Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (992)

rFactor 2 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (992)

Porsche GT3 Cup 992 | Steam Store: CLICK HERE

Developed in conjunction with both Porsche themselves, and real-world Porsche Cup driver and World’s Fastest Gamer winner Rudy van Buren, the new Porsche GT3 Cup 992 is an incredibly exciting car on which to tackle the various race circuits available within rFactor 2.

Producing a driving experience that is sure to keep drivers on their toes like only a Porsche Cup car can, this is a brutal yet engaging vehicle that offers up a little something for everyone – whilst making that stunning Porsche noise that we’ve all come to love in recent years.

Built with supreme attention to detail – a lot of you have been waiting patiently for this one, and we are pretty sure you will all find it has been very much worth the wait!

BTCC Vauxhall Astra

The venerable Astra is now coming to the end of its competitive lifecycle in the British Touring Car Championship, however despite its advancing years and lack of development in recent times, the car remains an exceptionally enjoyable front-wheel-drive racer, and one that remains very popular with fans of the sport – something we expect will transfer to the virtual version in rFactor 2.

Shorter in wheelbase than many of the British Touring Car field, the Astra offers a different and more lively driving experience than most NGTC spec cars – something we think will be enjoyed a great deal by our community once you get used to the new driving experience.
