Yes, you heard us right!
We have added yet another sim racing title to the ever-expanding platform here at SimGrid to take our total to 8 racing titles. AMS2 joins the likes of iRacing, ACC, RF2, Gran Turismo & F1, making SimGrid one of the most diverse hosting platforms in sim racing today.
What Is AMS2?
Automobilista 2 is a racing title from Reiza Studios, released in May of 2020 it is one of the newer titles on the market (cue iRacing 2008, RF2 2013 or ACC 2018).
The long-awaited v1.5 milestone update for Automobilista 2 was officially released in July, featuring a major overhaul to the physics of all cars in the game, a new DLC introducing dirt & rallycross racing to the sim, along with an extensive list of new features and improvements.
Add this to the already extensive car and track list the sim has to offer and you can find yourself racing in state-of-the-art shifter karts, v8 supercars, stock cars and more, or you can go classical and race around in 1992 DTMs, vintage formula cars like the 1974 Brabham or 1965 Mini Coopers.
With over 192 cars across 82 different classes in the AMS2 list and 58 tracks with 179 layouts to choose from, including all your favourites from ovals to kart venues, you are not short of content to keep you racing.
Did we mention this might also be the best sim for VR racing? Don’t just take our word on that either, everywhere you look will say VR racers need AMS2 in their life, with a tremendous out-of-the-box experience giving you arguably the best-looking racing title graphically in VR.
