I am from the United States, and even though I love F1 and the WEC, I think it would be nice to see IMSA replicated in game, specifically in the career mode. So, I was curious if there were any other series the rest of the community wanted to see, that is not currently represented in the game.

Formula E!

Yeah. Yeah I said it. I wanna see Formula E.

DoubleDelta
24-09-2018, 01:35
I did not even think about Formula E! That would be exciting to see in the game as well!

The Safety Car

I think everyone wants this! I hope they can find some solution to having one, even if that means only some series have it. For instance, it would be weird to be in a kart with a safety car.

I'd love to see something like the Lucas Oil Offroad Racing Series. With SMS's loose surface physics, that would be a blast.

The Road to Indy would be fun for IndyCar.
Formula E if done well would be very interesting.
BTCC. 32 car grids. UK circuits. Nutcase drivers.
The NASCAR series (Xfinity/Truck/Cup) would be fun in spite of the stupidity of the real series.

ChampCar 2007. It sounds odd. But no other game has it and it would be fun to just have that series with the real liveries trying to overturn Bourdais' McDonald's NHR with a Wilson CDW #9.

Super GT.

Also, I'd love to see something along the lines of the SVRA (Sportscar Vintage Racing Association)*. Now that would be an interesting branch in career mode with some really interesting mixes of cars on the track at the same time.

*Don't know what the uk/euro equivalent is called.

before adding new series, it would be nice to expand some existing series (American Stockcar, V8 Supercars, TCR aka TCC).
Otherwise, I would like to see on PC2:
- Brazilian Stockcars
- DTM (it seems to me that R3E no longer has the exclusivity of the license, to be confirmed)
- Andros Trophy (ice race with electric car)

- Anything touring car related (BTCC, WTCC etc)
- Vintage racing series as someone mentioned earlier
- Blancpain GT would be good too, but AC Competizione has it already... anything that replicates what GTR2 used to have though really...
- Maybe Formula 2? It's great to watch, so hopefully fun to drive too...

The thing is with IMSA as well you would be clogging up Tier 2(as you already have a ELMS/IMSA hybrid of LMP2/LMP3/GTE).

For Historic Racing the UK has several bodies, most notably HSCC

Also the CSCC Swinging Sixties series.

You'd think that having a picture of Lucas di Grassi on a Formula E podium on the main menu screen would imply... some sort of agreement between SMS and FE?

Formula E would be fun, but you'd need a load of new tracks for it. Unless they used the kart tracks (I'm half joking).

BTCC pleeeeeease - add Croft and Thruxton!

And bring Indycar up to date for the 2018 or 2019 season ;)

I would actually like to see SMS do a fully devoted Indy Car game. I would like see them put their full effort into 1 series for a game and seeing that they have the Indy license why not. I think it would sell big for them.

The full Indycar series would be great. It would be great to have the current season but if licencing is a problem, any of the seasons in recent years would be fine.

Kind of a shame SMS acquired the PWC license right before they've bought out by SRO then eventually renamed Blancpain Sprint U.S.

Maybe for pc3 they should try for IMSA.

SMS to purchase the rights to the FIA WRC. Dirt Rally is a good rally game, SMS could make a great rally game.

There is a need of a safety car by oval race, by worst weather conditions and by debris on the track. By random weather will be nice to have a red flag possibility as well.

We don't need any new serie. That is enough what we have. We need only a better career mode.

Disagree.Better online as well, more stable, 24 hour races, driver swaps etc.
And NGTC ,LMP2 2017 ,GT500 and more are all categories I want over a better career mode.

I admit I preferred the one on PC1, but it is still good.

- IMSA with the inclusion of DPi cars to the game.
- Vintage WEC (former to 80's or 90's).
- Masters Endurance Legends/Le Mans Series (It would be possible if SMS can enable the option "any car" at the time of creating an online session)
- Nascar Truck Series.
- WTCC.
- Super Formula (japanese).

I'll throw another vote for more vintage racing. The classes are already there in the game (sort of). We just need more cars and tracks to fill them out. As much fun as one has in the Lotus 98T, without a McLaren or Williams to race against, it feels kind of like a circle jerk.

Somebody could just make a modern version of GPL, already. This seems like a no-brainer to me. Or GT Legends. Heck, even NASCAR Legends. I'd buy any of those in a heartbeat.

I agree with this sentiment. We have a lot of great classic classes that just need more competitors. but then I do class anything from LMP900 and older, and classic series.......


If I had to pick one class to be added for the next one, it would deffo be late 90's super tourers........... Renault Laguna anyone? lol

Stewy32
24-10-2018, 17:37
New Historic class for me would be SuperTourers.
Please can we have a full SuperTouring era BTCC series in Career in PC3
Williams,McLaren and Ferrari HistoricF1 cars would be nice as well

I'm praying for Super Tourers. Lagunas Primeras Vectras A4s anything from that era.

V8 Supercars. I just tried the Falcon FG for the first time last night and it drives so, so well. The sound is incredible too.

Super GT is another one; I'd like to be able to try out some of those GT500 cars in game. A DLC for this series with a laser scanned Suzuka would be a hit.

We already have Sakitto, and I don't think I want Suzuka and Sakitto together.

Ya that's true although I would still welcome a laser-scanned Suzuka replacing Sakitto. If not, then a laser-scanned Okayama or Twin-Ring Motegi.

Unfortunately, I can’t see anything else ever being added. The game is probably already dead to SMS.

Custom grids(or give the real-world liveries priority) is all I ask for, but I feel like I’m shouting into the wind.

For example, I choose a Group C race, with 25 cars, and most of the real cars & liveries aren’t chosen, because the game selects too many fictional Sauber C9 cars. :(

They just released the Ferrari DLC last month. What makes you think the team is still not working on things behind the scenes?

A good thing that you'd pay money,as it isn't sustainable for a company to release content for free.

I would say the BTCC, they have 75% of tracks on the game, 2 of the cars currently used.

If they did a pack adding thruxton + croft, then more of the cars used, such as the honda civics, levorgs, Toyotas, VW passats, MG's and BMW 125i's it would be a job well done.

Id like too see a series already ingame actually finished...Rallycross where is the practice session and heats?

Content, tech and physics are amazing....implementation for online racing was terrible and really not surprised there was zero rally community.

All the features are in career mode....why couldn't it have been added to the online portion?
The question still goes unanswered a yr after release.

They don't have any current BTCC cars. The cars we have are TCR spec either real life or fantasy.

Spa Endurance 1 hour to 12 hours
Le Mans 1 hour to 24 hours
Fuji 1 hour to 8 hours
Silverstone 1 hour to 6 hours
Bathurst 1 hour to 20 hours
Long Beach 1 hour to 4 hour
Monza 10 minutes to 2 hours
Daytona Road Course 2 hours to 24 Hours
COTA? 1 hour to 6 hours? (since we don't have sebring)

idk what to call this.........

FYI GTE now uses White headlights.

I would change some of the race lengths,but that looks like a very good series.

How about "Global Endurance Series".
