I've been out of simracing for a while, but yesterday I saw this video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPIgX8T66ac

And damn, I'm impressed!! I see it's for sale on
http://rfactor.net/web/rf2/rfactor2-purchase , but it's still beta?
Anyone tried it yet?

Cheers
Andre

If you're impressed by that, be sure to keep an eye out for Project Cars.
Here's a comparison video of a Lotus '49 at SPA:

Wow that look great too! But is it me or does Rfactor2 have a better
sensation of speed, just judging from the videos? I would sell my
house (and girlfriend) for a sim that resembles GPL, and it seems to
me Rfactor2 comes closer to that.

Can't wait to try them out. Any release date known for both sims?

Cheers
Andre

Well, most of the staff from GPL is now with Slightly Mad Studios. You
can draw your own conclusions.

Sense of speed is largely FOV driven, and that's completely adjustable.
Currently, the game allows separate FOV adjustment from seven different
camera angles.

>Can't wait to try them out. Any release date known for both sims?


Can't speak for rfactor, and I really can't give you a date for Project
Cars either. We're hoping for this year, but it will get released when
it's ready. Project Cars doesn't have a publisher, so there's no outside
pressure to put out a product on a certain date. It will be released when
the members are happy with it.

Although the project is currently closed to new members, there's an
outside chance that will change in the future. If so, I'll post something
here.

Quite right Tony. Acronym dyslexia.
