Silverstone Circuit & Audi R8 LMS Are Headed For RaceRoom

Sector3 Studios have revealed that both the famed British Silverstone circuit & Audi R8 LMS are headed for RaceRoom!  One of the oldest Grand Prix circuits on the current calendar, Silverstone will become part of the RaceRoom Racing Experience’s line up of current modern day circuits.

Silverstone was scheduled to be in the title at an earlier time but work on the laser scanned version of The Nordschleife took precedent over the British circuit, so it was temporarily shelved until recently being revived for the title. No dates have been mentioned for Silverstone’s release for RaceRoom, although the consensus is that it will be available the third or fourth quarter of this year.


Silverstone was originally constructed on the site of a World War II Royal Air Force bomber station, RAF Silverstone, which opened in 1943. The circuit was first used as a motorsport venue by a group of friends in September 1947. Silverstone Arena Grand Prix Circuit (2011–present)  Length 5.891 km (3.661 mi) Turns 18 Lap Record 1:33.401 (Mark Webber, Red Bull Racing, 2013, F1)

Audi R8 LMS 2016:

RaceRoom Audi R8 LMS

The second of the latest announcements from Sector3 Studios is the impending inclusion of the awesome 2016 Audi R8 LMS car in their RaceRoom title. The 2016 version of the V10 powered Audi started its 2016 campaign in style with an overall win at the Dubai 24 Hours race and a class win in the classic Daytona 24 Hours in the US. The Audi R8 LMS’s  lightweight design meets higher safety standards than the 2015 model and features an even more sophisticated aerodynamics package when compared to the previous generation as well!

The new car is certainly a great addition to RaceRoom’s racing garage and should make for great racing with that wicked V10 howl emanating from its exhausts!
