2. The "Red Bull Ring", a new real world circuit located in green rolling hills, will be added.
・Red Bull Ring
Total Length: 4,831m, Elevation Change: 65.45m, Number of corners: 10, Longest Straight: 939m
This green circuit is located Northwest of Graz, an old city in Austria. Based on the Österreichring first constructed in 1969, it was also called the A1 Ring from 1997 to 2010. This is a high speed circuit combining sharp tight corners and long flat out sections, and while the course layout appears simple, the circuit is located in a hilly area creating large ascents and descents. This makes the track much more difficult than it seems at first glance. The skill of the driver will greatly affect the lap times on this track. The full track as well as the short version has been included.
3. The following 3 events will be added to the 'GT League':
■ Beetle & Samba Bus Fest (Beginner League)
An event for two cars from the good ol' days, the Volkswagen 'Beetle' and the Samba Bus. Unique designs powered by an air cooled flat 4 engine.
■ Group 3 Cup (Amateur League)
Stay focused and aim for the chequered flag! A top group 3 battle of the bravest pilots.
■ Nostalgic 1979 (Professional League)
Bring back the emotion and excitement. A battle of famed cars from motor racing history.
In addition, new Rounds have been added to the following events: Mazda Roadster's Cup (Beginner's League), Red Bull X Jr. Series (Amateur League), Lamborghini Cup (Professional League), and the Gr.1 Prototype Endurance Series (Endurance League).
4. More additional features will be added.
