    New GT3 cars being released by S397, most likely by Xmas. They are part of a new DLC called rFchallengers. So far a Porsche and BMW have been announced. I have the feeling we may see 1 or 2 more cars .... Audi, Nissan perhaps?

    Given that they are GT3, I assume they will be BOP with the current GT3 pack. Can anyone from S397 confirm.

    Looking forward to seeing these new set of cars.

    Hopefully something new comes next :D But I guess it is 99% to be a GT3 car the 1% a GT4 car :D

    Two excellent additions to the GT3 field, inst-buy already

    They don't seem to be referencing it as 'GT3 pack 2' so I'm gonna take a wild guess we may get GT4 cars and/or more GTE or protos

    Side note: good to see the relationship with BMW and Porsche goes deep, and with Nords coming up next year I wonder might we see the Nords-specific BMW class car or Caymans which seem to be common in the VLN

    I'm hoping for an Audi and Lambo and that would complete the GT3 for me, but if it's some GTE, LMP or GT4, I'd be equally happy.
    Insta-buy for me as well.

    An Audi is desperately needed. Between all of the GT3 packs out there (SimTek, Apex, S397), it is the one major marq that isn't represented. I'm looking forward to the pack. I am wondering what else will be included.

    Hopefully they don’t mess up the ffb like they did on the merc.

    I literally just mentioned that on one of my sim racing FB groups. Hopefully when that will come with the update to the GT3 pack with the new shaders. That and along with the few other bug fixes, RPM leds not adjusted properly and refueling times are not right, you can lose 3+ second refueling the Corvette (Stealing your post @Will Mazeo ;) )

    That would be the same as having 2 repeated Audis in the pack lol, these 2 cars are basically the same thing.

    Hopefully they use this to fix the first pack.... it's a shame a professional studio is so damn slow to fix basic stuff, the pack is out for mroe than a year already wtf

    Yes, this :p :D

    that's probably what they'll do then - two cars with minimum amount of work..

    Callaway GT3 -> Corvette GTE
    911 GTE -> 911 GT3
    M8 -> M6

    I know there are differences but the basics were/are there.

    (whatever cars they do release I hope they take the time to position the mirrors correctly.....)

    No, these are built to different specs. The 911 GTE for example has a mid engine (which should not be allowed by GTE rules but that's another topic) the GT3 is like the street car.
    And these are 2 cars from same manufacturer on different class (tho the Vette GT3 is not built by Chevy). The Audi and Lambo on the other hand are basically the same cars in the same class, they share a lot of parts I think the only difference is aero.

    Wowza. We get GT3 versions of what is already in GTE. Give us something new already.

    I am wondering now if maybe we get the new Bentley that ran in BES in 2018, seeing as that would also continue an existing partnership S397 has

    I hope not really, if we get new Blentley or McLaren would be repeated brands, sure I want the current models but then they'd have to be an update in the previous pack.
    *Unless there was new rules to the class like happened with GTE cars after 2016, then yeah makes more sense.

    I agree it would be a little disappointing if that counted as one of, say 5 cars, but thinking outside the box. It would still be more welcome than a Radical :p

    I don't know man, without being an expert, just judging by the cover I'd say they are aerodynamically different, which is enough for a car to have a unique character

    I suppose so but I was being kinda realistic.....I don't see them getting a Ferrari license but who knows
