RaceRoom Gets a Taste of GT4 Machinery With KTM X-Bow and Porsche Cayman

RaceRoom 10 November 17, 2018 by

The updates for RaceRoom Racing Experience keep on coming. Sector3 is getting ready to release a new update to the game that will introduce a new category to the mix: the GT4 class.

With it comes two new cars that players are sure to appreciate: the KTM X-Bow GT4 and Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR. The X-Bow is a welcome addition and joins the 360hp, 1764lb X-Bow RR already in the game. The GT4 may not be as light (2260lb) but it will still bite down as hard, if not more so.

Veteran players will no doubt recognize the latter car. The Cayman Clubsport MR is based on the existing Clubsport model introduced in last year’s Porsche DLC. Fitted with an upgrade kit developed by Manthey-Racing, the GT4 MR is anything but vanilla.

Further setting the two apart is the MR’s lower weight, and adjustable wings, dampers, and brake bias. While the Cayman has a top speed advantage over the X-Bow, Sector3 points out it will be fussy around corners. Not too hard to believe considering there’s more than an 800lb difference between them.

The X-Bow will excel around technical tracks such as Imola, whereas the Cayman is more likely to edge ahead on power circuits like Monza. We can’t wait to get our hands on both and take them for a spin.

Sector3 promises to deliver both in the next update, but it gets better. The Swedish studio is teasing a bonus announcement for next week. Could it be an extra car, or a new track venue to test the two?

We’ll find out in due time. Stay tuned!
