The third quarter of the year is coming to an end. In the Trackmania world, this means getting ready for a new season: Fall 2022 is just around the corner, and from October 1, 2022, you can look forward to 25 new tracks from the following five categories:
As known, the tracks are roughly divided by length and difficulty and become increasingly challenging.
Sim racers had to wait a long time for this moment. Thrustmaster will officially present the manufacturer’s first Direct Drive Base for the PC on November 17 in a livestream on Twitch (link to TM’s account).
One can still be curious about details. So far, there is no information regarding strength, price, and release date.
For several years, the two Podium DDs have been the flagship of the ecosystem from Fanatec, currently probably the largest provider of simracing hardware. With 20 and 25 Newton meters of torque respectively, both wheel bases are in the high-end range of wheel bases and leave nothing to be wished for in terms of the strength of the force feedback.
Registration for the closed beta of RENNSPORT is now open:
CLOSED BETA (LIMITED SIGN UP NOW!) – END OF THIS YEAR With the Closed Beta we extend the group of players with access to RENNSPORT with those who applied through our different pillars such as the waitlist, our Social Media channels or through other ways that we will communicate by time. First drops end of this year. Stay tuned!
50% of the available keys will be distributed on a first come first serve basis, the remaining 50% will be distributed randomly. So you have to be quick if you want to test the simulation before the end of the year.
For the first time since the event in 2019, the popular Gamescom took place again in Cologne this year. Exhibitors from all areas of software and hardware were on site, showed new products and sought the exchange with visitors. Of course, there were also some booths related to simracing. Among them was Asetek, who presented their new Wheel Base including a steering wheel prototype to the public for the first time (link to the article on Simracing-PC).
Below you can enjoy some impressions of Gamescom 2022:
Turn Racing (www.turnracing.com) has already made some DIY projects available for free in the past. Now the next project for DIY-enthusiastic racers is the Turn 992 Cup DIY Sim Racing Wheel, this time created by Zebbeba, a user of the Discord server of Turn Racing (Link). For the first time there are files for a PCB and molds for the grips.
At this year’s Gamescom in Cologne, you can take a first glance at the new products from Asetek. These are especially the new Invicta Premium Wheel Base with 27 Newton meters and the Forte Steering Wheel in Formula style. Both are currently still declared as pre-production units, so we can assume that there will be some changes before the final release.
For the first test drives, either a GT3 car or a Ferrari F1 bolide will be available, which will be driven around Spa-Francorchamps.
At the event of RENNSPORT in Cologne (link to the report) SImracing-PC was able to take a first look at the soon to be released steering wheel from VRS. It is supposed to complete the existing range (VRS DirectForce Pro Wheel Base and pedals).
