    I still don't know what to think of rFactor 2. I have it, played it but still looks like an ancient game.

    The McLaren Senna GTR, if I'm correct, isn't homologated for GTE, is it? I think that's what the article says but I wanted to be sure.

    No it’s part of the new Hypercar class that is replacing LMP1. We don’t have the numbers yet on HP/Weight but I’ve done some testing and it’s blowing the doors off GTEs, steadily getting by LMP2 cars. I’d guess 800hp+.
    Awesome car to drive although it does handle quite a bit GT3ish and that rear wing is atrocious.

    Is that confirmed that the Senna GTR is gonna be in that class? I thought that only Aston Martin and Toyota have confirmed their entries, respectively being the Valkyrie and Gazoo SuperSports Concept. I also would’ve thought that new Speedtail would be the one picked for the Hypercar class but whatever.

    It's not confirmed, just a hypercar class car. McLaren said back in March that F1 is their top priority and they would not race the Senna in WEC but I hope they change their minds.

    Yeah McLaren needs to get it together considering they have 2 different models they can choose to commit to for this new hypercar class. The Senna, speedtail.

    No, McLaren have announced nothing about Hypercar. They did recently say that a programme will be somewhat dependent on the 2021 F1 budget cap.

    Also, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus have also announced a Hypercar project. In fact they were the first to do so. ByKolles and Oreca plan on being there for 2020 but have yet to confirm it.

    I get that McLaren has been in F1 for a long time, and the sport has influenced a lot of their cars, but I'd imagine that WEC has potential to have a better profit margin than F1, potentially.

    phisics are awesome, absolutely the best for drifting, also graphics quality varies a lot from track to track and car to car, with some being quite nice to look at. You also get LOTS of high- quality mods with cars that are not available in other sims (excluding low-quality AC mods).
    To each his own, but it's a sim worth having.
