    We’re very pleased to announce the 1967 Formula 2 Mod for rFactor 2.

    The 1967 European F2 season was the first using the new 1.6 litre engine formula and would establish the dominance of the Cosworth FVA engine in the class. Prominent chassis constructors such as Brabham, Lotus, McLaren, Matra, Cooper and Lola were all represented in the class throughout the 10 race season.

    During the 1960’s, many established Formula 1 drivers would compete in Formula 2 events. However, the two tier championship structure meant that “graded” drivers were ineligible for points but were able to compete for wins. Graded drivers that competed in the the 67 F2 season included Jack Brabham, Denny Hulme, Jochen Rindt, Graham Hill, Jim Clark, Bruce McLaren and John Surtees.

    Though the championship was won by Jacky Ickx (Matra) followed by Frank Gardner (Brabham) each with 1 win, the season was dominated by graded drivers with Rindt (Brabham) taking 5 wins with Clark (Lotus) and Stewart (Matra) taking 1 win each.

    This mod will include 3 unique cars and their drivers of the 1967 European F2 season:

    Brabham BT23 FVA
    Drivers: Jack Brabham, Denny Hulme, Frank Gardner, Jochen Rindt, Alan Rees, Robin Widdows

    The 3 cars are obviously at different stages of development. All are still WIP.

    Looking very good already. I'm really looking forward to trying these when ready. Seems exactly the type of a mod to introduce people to the goodness of rF2 and also one that would be a great driving learning/polishing tool. Best of luck finishing this and thanks for your hard work.

    Awesome! Maybe more than awesome! Can't wait...
    Will they be along the line and competitive with the Matra and Techno we already have?

    That looks great! I'm happy to see cars from that era to be in development!

    What car is the Techno? I'm not familiar with that one? I know of the ISI Brabham, EVE and Spark. Is it something that I'm missing?

    This looks fantastic. Exactly the kind of mod that fits rF2. Can't wait to four-wheel-drift them around Monaco :)

    Performance should indeed be similar to the Eve and Spark. The Eve is essentially the Matra mentioned in the OP, the Spark (Tecno) started racing in the '68 season. Both share the same Cosworth FVA engine as these cars.

    A few different angles to show off some of the details:
