The great people over at IRG World are hosting the perfect combination. V8 Super Cars at Bathurst on 02/05/21. What more could you hope for? Tune in to support this great league in rFactor 2.
We see some great combinations in sim racing, mention V8 Super Cars at Bathurst to the community, and watch the eyebrows raise in excitement. Yes, this weekend IRG World is hosting exactly that in rFactor 2. Taking raw power and unforgiving cars to a track that tests the finest racers will be a real spectacle.
Before the roar of engines takes over the mountain IRG World would like to give a few words on the build up to the race weekend.
This mountain is Mount Panorama, or as the native people of Wahluu say. At this facility for almost 100 years, daredevils have sometimes even exceeded the laws of physics, they exceed the limits of reason in the pursuit of victory and challenges. The most famous races are the Bathurst 1000 and the Bathurst 12 Hour Race. As for today’s standards, the track has an unusual layout, maybe if it had not been built a long time ago, today it would not have been allowed to be built at all.
The difference in levels is “a staggering” 174 meters !!! And the greatest slope is 1: 6.13, here is a proposal for IRG Studio when asked during the broadcast on the MotogamesTv channel how many degrees are these. Apart from the competitions taking place, the track is open to the public and you can ride it in both directions for free. You just have to be very careful with police patrols who mercilessly impose tickets on amateurs faster than the speed of 60 kmh introduced along the entire length of the track.
