In a series of tweets over the past couple of weeks, Straight4 CEO Ian Bell has been teasing content for his new sim, GTRevival. The screenshots appear to show some real throwback content to the SIMBIN GTR franchise, including the Lister Storm GT, Dodge Viper GTS and BMW M3:

Their recent newsletter, linking to the Straight4 Web site, also included an interview with Lister Cars CEO Lawrence Whittaker, Sim Racing System developer and new addition to Straight4 Henrique Alves, AI Investor Peter Gentsch and some spectacular photos from Mont-Tremblant.

This is the most exciting content to come to a racing sim since.......... GTR.

Totally agree. Nice to have something fresh (albeit long recycled!)
To copy other popular games with GT3 is to invite judgment, but these old dinosaurs, oh yes!

I'm really excited for this game. The release is at least one year away, it's going to be a long wait. I really should install GTR2 on my laptop.

GTR2 will run like a dream on any relatively modern PC or laptop. If it fails to launch after the first time you may have to run the 3dconfig each time you launch it. I do on my PC. It won't run otherwise.

GTR2 is excellent, the DNA of the best racing games comes from it I reckon, along with Race07.

Having said this, to get the best experience of the core cars, I invested in RSS's GT pack so I could race in AC, I'm very glad I did!
This pack: https://racesimstudio.sellfy.store/p/gt-pack/

It certainly scratched the GTR itch of racing a Ferruccio (cough, Ferrari, cough) 550 around Spa.

GTRevival is basically being specifically made for me at this point. :D (feels like)

It's actually ages since I tried the AI in AC. Have modders improved it any? It was a bit iffy last time I tried. Actually, so was rF2 as well and they've supposedly fixed that. I really need to do more sim racing... lol

I kinda know what I know - Content Manager has a few settings for AI that I messed around with, and with low expectations, I'm pleasantly surprised.

Thanks for the heads up, I got it running with the HQ Anniversary patch. Somehow the Crewchief plugin crashes the whole game, I only would like it for the spotter function.
My god, the last time I played this game was 15 years ago, but I still get chills when I hear the intro music.
