ADAC GT Masters Experience Available

0

Sector3 Studios has released the latest update for RaceRoom Racing Experience, and with it comes the ADAC GT Masters 2014 Experience.

Unlike the ADAC GT Masters 2013 car pack, this is a full “Experience” package, which can provide a standalone add-on to the base RaceRoom Racing Experience content. The new add-on features six cars to drive on eight circuits, two of which are brand new to the sim. You have the option to race the full sixteen race 2014 ADAC GT Masters Championship, run single events, or take part in the “Challenges” mode.

This update also brings a lot more than just the ADAC Experience content. We have a lot of under-the-hood upgrades to the sim, includes the addition of pit stops. Another small update I’ve been waiting a long time for was a fix to the clutch system. Before, if you were not using auto clutch, but using a sequential gearbox, the car was too sensitive to gearbox damage. It appears Sector3 has finally fixed the issue, which I’m happy about. For more information on what this new update brings, check out the update log below.

You can purchase the ADAC GT Masters 2014 Experience here, for 2500vRP (just under $30 USD). Are you going to pick up the new add-on? Let us know in the comments below!
