Virtual_LM’s ethone has released a new preview video of Le Mans 1991-1996 to rFactor 2, showing us a lap around the French track in rainy conditions.
Back in June 2012, Virtua_LM released their latest track for rFactor, bringing the popular Circuit de la Sarthe to the simulation. Now, the track is on its way into rFactor 2 as ethone is making great progress as you can see in the video below.
The 1991-1996 layout of the track is largely identical to the track as it is run today, the major differences being the missing Esses section after the Dunlop bridge as well as a slightly different layout of the Dunlop Chicane & Tertre Rouge areas.
The World Sim Team has released their GP3 2011 mod for rFactor.

The series uses Dallara-built and Renault-powered spec racing cars that put out 280hp. Mexican Esteban Gutierrez clinched the first GP3 Series season title in 2010, earning him a drive in the GP2 series.
