    Our next content drop stars a trio of cars that are designed to be pushed to the limit: a set of performance monsters that reward – demand, even – maximum attack mode. We present a jet-fighter inspired endurance racing superstar; a GT supercar that punches well above its weight; and finally a true prototype missile of the modern era. These three cars make up our On The Edge performance pack.

    First up is KTM’s quirky X-Bow GT2, the latest steroidal evolution of the X-Bow platform. What started off as a lightweight, grown-up go-kart has bulked up over the years, first gaining a clam-shell closed cockpit and now a longer wheelbase, extreme aero and even more power. Directed at the SRO’s ‘gentleman’ driver GT2 series, it’s also hit the international endurance scene hard – and with success.

    You may think of GT4s as tame: boring, barely modified road cars? Think again. GT4 has evolved from its humble roots as an aspiring GT driver’s jump-off point to standing on its own, slotting in only just below the GT3 category (and often found racing alongside it). Don’t forget that the cars GT4s are based on are typically road-going supercars in the their own right, and McLaren’s 570S GT4 proves the point. Low-slung, capable and thrilling to drive, the McLaren will further boost Raceroom’s already strong GT4 pack.

    The tip of this performance avalanche comes in the svelte form of Mazda’s RT-24P prototype. Built to IMSA’s DPi regulations by sportscar specialists Multimatic and based on the Riley-Multimatic Mk30 LMP2 chassis, the Mazda is a proper screamer. And that’s both its engine note and what happens when you drive it! The RT-24P is a full-on prototype: carbon-tubbed, laden with aero and delivering 600hp in a package that weighs well under a ton. Racing from 2017-21, it won all the American endurance classics: Sebring, Daytona and Petit Le Mans. It’s going to be a blast to drive and perfect for multi-class racing.


    We’ll go into more details about each car over the coming days, leading up to the pack’s release at the beginning of April. Fasten your virtual seatbelts: things are about to get extreme!

    Wow i really looking forward to Test the Mazda. It was always my favorite DPI car.

    I also like, that you complete existing classes with the other two Cars.

    Great times ahead

    Take my money! Love it allready!

    Man, I wish Sebring was the next track to be released. This track is sorely lacking.

    I'm disappointed. DPi is old news. I'm sure it will be fun to drive, as all new cars in Raceroom are, but introducing a recently phased out class instead of Hypercars that replaced them and are the hottest topic in sports car racing at the moment, shows the sim being behind the curve.

    Great content release again. If only we could get a roadmap every 3 months and 1 time graphics update... With the best FFB/Physics/Sounds/Car & Track selection, this sim would get a wider adoption once the graphics get a much-needed boost.

    Looking forward to getting these 3, especially the McLaren. I'm looking for something to weild as I fight the Ai around the Nordschleife. The McLaren GT4 will do nicely.

    Why not. What he talks about is independent from what view you use.

    I wonder how the devs decide on what content to make.
    It's rather underwhelming to see endurance oriented cars being prioritized in a platform, which compared to competitors, is the least suitable for this type of racing. Especially when Raceroom's content IMO has some obvious weaknesses, like a lack in low performance category (ironically, it's probably miatas and NSUs that are used the most due to rookie server popularity).

    Could argue that bonnet cam is actually more realistic than cockpit, use my own setup for example, single monitor, desk, wheel on a stand. So, if I use cockpit cam (which I do), on screen I can see most of the windscreen, part of a mirror, the dash and (if enabled) a steering wheel, I'm then sat 3ft back from the screen with another steering wheel on a wheel stand in front of me which I can also see. I'd argue that it'd be more realistic for me to see the monitor as the windscreen, so I should only really be able to see the bonnet and none of the interior?

    @J-F Chardon Pack looks great, where was all the Mazda content when I was a tester? :D

    Crosslé 90F and KTM X-Bow RR also, even if the latter could be included in an intermediate class with the Audi TT RS VLN and the 964 for example.

    You could argue that..but you'd be wrong. Bonnet cam is central for a start off, which unless you're in a single seater is not correct.

    What you'd really want is a dashboard cam. Which we don't have.

    For my part, I only use the bonnet cam with the Audi R18 and DMD P20 as I can't see the apexes with those front fenders.
