It's good to BTCC a sim-racer
Image Space Incorporated (ISI) have released their latest add-on of the Honda Civic Touring Car for their incredibly popular rFactor 2 racing-sim. Fans of the infamous British Touring Car Championship - or BTCC as it's more widely known amongst its followers - will recognise some of the liveries being sported on the cars. Starting with the Honda Yuasa Racing Team we have Matt Neal and Gordon 'Flash' Shedden's NGTC (Next Generation Touring Car) Civics, both of whom are BTCC Champions with Shedden winning most recently with his first title in 2012 and the veteran racer Neal having won the series three times in 2005, 2006 and 2011! And that's not where the the mentions of 'Honda' and 'winning' end either, as along with the 'Works' team, players will also be available to race around in the current BTCC Driver's Champion 'Pirtek' Civic driven by Andrew Jordan.
Being a Civic it's obviously a Front-Wheel Drive car but don't let that put you off as these cars are built for handling and if you watch any racing then you will know how much a good setup matters in allowing the driver to stick to the racing line and hug those apexes.
Included in the download is a touching tribute from Tim Wheatley at ISI for his grandfather, with two AI cars showing as being sponsored by the 'RAF Benevolent Fund'.
