    Great news, the exposure garnished from linking up with a reputable company such as McLaren can only be good for this sim!

    Hopefully the mod used for this event will be a little more reflective of the qualities of RF2 than the Formula E mod!

    They should use rF2 for all the rounds! (I don't want to spend money for iRacing or RaceRoom lol)

    This is a big must,if s397 can't get a quality mod to run this then they should cancel,the amount of negative stuff I read about that event was insane,but justified,it looked crap.
    This could be a big deal for rf2 as long as rf2 is represented in the best way,this announcement has already caused some butt hurt over on the iracing forums lol,let's stick it to em, and show off rf2 in all it's glory

    Is there a known reason for changing the racing sim in the middle of competition?

    Well the biggest problem (and probably the reason they use rF2 only for Silverstone round) is that there are not enough quality large-scale tracks in rF2. Formula E opted for building their own tracks and as we saw it was a disaster (the tracks). I think it's very difficult for a third party to start building tracks that mirror S397/ISI stock quality, a) because some of the gMotor plugins and mod tools are very much out of date and b) because it takes more and more effort and time to build good looking tracks in 2017.

    Maybe having licensed tracks is important for them?

    I'm interested if they are supplying the mod, or if it's an official Mclaren car being produced by S397?
    As far as I'm aware there are no official Mclaren cars in the content at this time?

    Will be Project CARS 2 and GT Sport ready for this competition? According to the latest PjC2 video sponsored by McLaren, Project CARS will take part for sure, then we have Assetto Corsa. On mobile? Real Racing 3, Jesus, really?? :eek::(
