rFactor 2 – 2019 Formula E And Extra Track Released


Studio 397 released the 2019 Formula E Gen2 car for the rFactor 2 racing simulator.

From a simulation point of view, the 2019 Formula E racer significantly changed the racing experience, as the 250kW (335bhp) 2018/2019 spec Formula E car is faster than its predecessor and almost doubles the amount of energy storage capacity, meaning it can now complete a whole race without having to change cars. The car is available as payed content for a very modest 4,99€.

“This release of the Formula E Gen2 is not just about the car itself. We have been hard at work adding in new physics features to enable the very latest of brake-by-wire technology. You might ask, what does this mean? Brake-by-wire in layman’s terms simply means that the entire braking circuit is handled ‘electronically’ based on the amount of pressure you put on the brake pedal (kind of like your home sim rig!). This electronic signal from the brake pedal is then split between the ‘electric motor’ and the ‘brake rotor’. In real life, the balance of this split is up to the race team engineer.

Engineers will seek to maximize the motor regeneration of the battery. This means the brake-by-wire system will use the maximum negative torque capability (braking power) of the electric motor before starting to apply force to the physical brake disc. The brake discs will only kick in if the requested torque needed for braking exceeds what the electric motor is capable of. However, given that the rear brakes will then struggle to generate any temperature, an engineer may choose to have some force applied to the discs just to ensure that the carbon discs don’t glaze over.

This is in addition to the absence of a rear brake duct for the Formula E. Our new system’s algorithm is currently based on this optimal balance. What this all means….mash that brake pedal and watch your battery charge up!”

Besides the FIA Formula E licensed content, Studio 397 also introduced the Lester Special Edition, which is a fictional track made for Formula E cars based upon the classic Lester GP based in New Jersey, USA. The 3.2 km track boasts 18 corners with some amazing sweeping curves and 2 tricky chicanes. The 292.707 MB download is free of charge.

“Not only that, as a special surprise, find out Formula E inspired version of the awesome Lester GP circuit. Welcome Lester Special Edition Formula E and free addition for rFactor 2.
