So Loch Drummond will be your "Champions Choice" track then ? :-)

Sorry... just fishing for info , trying to get a head start.

Lol. Yeah,  I still haven't asked which track Mike wants as his champion track this season. So what will it be Mr Foster?

judging the track list looks like theres only 4 new road tracks.
in pcars 2
Red Bull Ring
Fuji Speedway
Circuit of the Americas
Knockhill Racing Circuit

and the usual nords laser scan everyone gets.

most of it is reused content, which means there is a slight chance they had unused resourced that they could use for tyre development and other stuff.

rest of tracks are rally cross, karts, ice,ovals, etc.
Chesterfield Karting Circuit (karts)
Daytona International Speedway (oval)
Dirtfish Rally School (rally)
Indianapolis Motor Speedway (oval)
Lankebanen - Hell  (rallycross)
Loheac-Bretagna (rally cross)
Mercedes-Benz Ice Track  (no idea wtf this is)
Sampala Circuit (no idea what this is)
Sportsland SUGO (rallycross?)

I don't expect Pcars2 to be better than RF2 in handlng, but if it can at least surpass iRacing and Assetto it would be something I would purchase. Definitely won't be shelling out money day 1. If I even so much hear about Pcars 3, I would never buy Pcars 2 because I hate developers that churn crap out. Reminds me of the Madden football games by EA. Every year it was basically $60 for a roster update.

Assetto got it right with the way they do DLC. If people like the product, they will support it. Rfactor 2 may have the worst marketing strategy and business plan of all time.

As if not having a marketing plan at all is a bad thing?

I also think that AC has most healtiest business plan. Not sure though if giving rf2 devs more money would give us more stuff given how complex product this is.

Well I have to say having watched a few of the promos and explanation vids for PCars 2, if we ignore the physics and tire model for now, the rest of the game looks amazingly polished and just really nice little built in features.  I really hope the Studio 397 new UI, Online System and other items step up as well.

However, initial comments on the physics and tire model say it's an improvement on pCars 1, but nothing amazing, which is kind of as expected.  Also, they do not have driver swaps, so for the endurance boys this will be a none starter.  Finally, it seems they have included a lot of historic cars for which the car models are amazing, but they had no why of really modelling the actual driving physics and tire models, so these are just there best guess or some kind of generics model.

I will at some point probably pick up a copy, just to try it out, but maybe after it goes on sale.

Given how far behind they were in their attempt of the tire development in the first one, and never got that sorted, I doubt it has been by now. And then add different driving disciplines, there's no way. But the tracks are updated material that was held back from pC1 release for future cash-in, with all inaccuracies that rival ISI still in big evidence. The bugs and glitches speak for themselves with lackluster AI. And then there is the game design and single-player options. pC1 advertised an amazing premise and released something that had nothing to do with it.

pC2 is promising a lot but buying this before waiting a few months of reviews, bug reports, and user comments to flesh out, is too naļve.

Yeap I agree, I won't be rushing out to buy it, I didn't with the first one either, but it doesn't stop the frustration with so may silly little things that rf2 should do better. Even trying to find a car or track offline is frustrating as the folders and naming is all over the place.  Simple things that could easily be improved to make the user experience better.

That's the appealing aspect of pCARS: quantity of vehicles and circuits.

Damn it, I was really gonna give this title a miss, but I have to say a number of the reports I have seen do say similar things about the significant improvements.  Also that rain effect and the live track stuff look amazing!

I am going to wait a while though, as I don't have time and I want to see what happens for a month or 2.

I probably won't rush into it either but I would like to try it out at some point.

Race engineer, career mode and those weather effects are all something rf2 could learn from.

But it still seems to have some arcade elements like going over kerbs and offroad like nothing, bad (first lap) AI and driving racing cars on snow :P

They will probably release more content and also improve the game so some of the concerns the reviewer had are weird at this point.
