    No sir, rFactor is created by Image Space Inc. (ISI)

    SMS is completely different company. Any WMD member can show you these guys worked since 2011 to create everything "from 0" as you say. All the evidence is back in the WMD forum.

    the origins is a funny one, it started out in ISI's F12002, as a mod team creating a mod for that game, since then it developed into SimBin then sector 3, Ian Bell was involved in that project.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sector3_Studios

    Ian moved on to Blimey! games, but that didnt work out, i think Ian just held on to the assets and created Slightly Mad Studios, it obviously worked well.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slightly_Mad_Studios

    so no direct connection to ISI itself, but its assumed that building that mod for f1 2002 probably gave ian the chance to look through the game engine and learn some things for later games? only ian would know for sure.

    I have seem here and there people calling (claiming, stating as a fact) Project CARS a gmotor2 based game. As all the work went basically to the graphics/sound/modding rf1 tech.
