RaceRoom – Anderstorp Raceway and Patch Released

It has nearly been two months since we first saw Anderstorp Raceway in RaceRoom, when the Swedish developer Sector3 Studios announced the track. To continue the Wednesday/ Thursday release tradition, Sector3 Studios has now released the track for RaceRoom and has also provided a trailer, which you can view above.

What you get

For 299 Virtual Racing Points (VRP) you get the nearly 50-year-old Swedish track in two layouts. The Grand Prix Layout, which is roughly four kilometres long, and the South Layout, which is two kilometres long.Anderstorp Raceway logo

Should the trailer, which Sector3 Studios provided, not satisfy you or you wish to see more of the track, you can check out Billy Strange hammering the recently released BMW M6 GT3 around a pre-release version of the track here.

Patch

In addition to the track, a small patch has been released. A number of smaller issues have been taken care of and some minor features have been added. For example, there is now a “Allow Players Join in Qualifying” option in multiplayer.
