News rFactor 2: 1966 Spa & Monaco GP tracks updated to version 2

Game: Rfactor 2

Platform: PC

Publisher: Image Space Incorporated

Release Date: 28/03/2013

rFactor 2's classic Monaco (Monte Carlo) and Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) 1966 Grand Prix tracks have now been updated to version 2.

The old version of Monte Carlo proved to be difficult to run on some systems with poor performance and stuttering plaguing the experience. The new version 2 update addresses these issues completely. Pop up and stuttering are now a thing of the past according to developer Image Space Inc.(ISI).

The Belgium track was showing its age ever since it was first released for rFactor 2 and hasn't aged well since as you can imagine. ISI weren't not exactly keen on revisiting the track due to all of the problems previously encountered, but thanks to popular demand, have now cleaned up the track and optimised it as best they can.

Both tracks can be downloaded at this link and both weigh in around the 300 MB mark. You can view the full changelogs of the tracks below along with the newly released screenshots.
