The first of the Paid DLC for Automobilista has been released, further expanding the sim’s international presence. This time, the Brit Pack DLC brings plenty of content from Great Britain!
The pack brings us 3 British circuits, and 6 cars (with 8 variants):
- Brands Hatch
- Cadwell Park
- Oulton Park
- Ultima GTR (road & race version)
- F-Trainer (Novice & Advanced versions)
- MCR Sports 2000
- Caterhams – 270 (Academy series), 360R (Superlight Series), and the mighty 620R.
These cars and tracks look to shape up into a nice combination for drivers looking for a well rounded experience. The Caterhams were a fan favorite in rFactor 2 and Race 07, so it’s a welcome addition to see them return in Automobilista. The F-Trainer fills an “Entry-Level” open-wheeler slot, and the Ultima GTR and MCR Sports 2000 are high performance vehicles that will test a driver’s skill.
Brands Hatch is also a fan favorite, being in most racing sims. Cadwell Park and Oulton Park are more on the neglected side, but it’s a welcome addition to the Brit Pack.
All of the cars in the Brit Pack were developed in collaboration with the real-world manufacturers, using real life data to create the virtual renditions of the cars. The circuits were also officially licensed, and have even utilized laser scan data in the creation of the tracks!
You can now purchase the Brit Pack for Automobilista on Steam for $17.99 (saving $2 off of the $19.99 retail price), but I would recommend looking into the Season Pass, which is $29.99 and will include ALL the Automobilista DLC packages.
