    10/13 is a lucky day for those of you who like your historic racing. :)

    You can see the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1i9DNScRTI



    Note that ISR have this for 24 hours, we'll be posting the original file for download and putting it on our own outlets after that period.

    The text below I wrote as a piece for my blog. I feel it's still quite appropriate, although it's perhaps my own warped view of reality in some ways. ;)

    I typically don't like cars from the '50s, '60s, and '70s but I'm still thankful that you've shared this video with us.

    Well, I was expecting to see something that will actually look like rFactor 2 we know from the recent screenshots and not like rFactor 1 with a lot of video post processing, 3d crowd, animated driver hands and something that probably should be puddles.

    I'm guessing most of that was done with the video editing software. I doubt the game will actually look like that.

    It's a promo video based on the movie, Grand Prix. Many may even recognize specific camera placements. :)

    That's the issue during the development of gfx effects. You do get times when one effect has no issues and the next frame it does, and different effects have different issues and sometimes overlap, sometimes not. We've got to the stage though where we can show you what IS in the video, and the number of things either off or avoided in the video is decreasing bigtime. :) There's a mirage effect, heat haze on the track and heat haze on the cars, MUCH improved overall things like shadowing, physics (as best as they can be seen without you doing the driving) and of course killer content. I know it's tough to focus on what is there rather than what isn't... But that's what I'd do. ;)

    This is right up my alley :)
    Track looks good and the car behaviour looks even better.

    Great job!

    1:56-1:58, i know its a VERY brief incar shot, but the shadowing looks quite good.

    I agree with everyone saying please show us a full, onboard lap, with sounds, with whatever gfx options ARE available. It would be a much better display of the physics.

    I have never seen any virtual race that looks so alive.
    So much action on track as well as in the scenery brings a true feeling of joy :D

    Congratulations!

    Scott did do an amazing job. It's a little freaky the first time a track marshall turns their head watching you drive by...
