RaceRoom October 2018 Update And DTM AMG-Mercedes Content Released
Sector3 Studios has deployed a new update for their RaceRoom Racing Experience title, and have also made the 2003 AMG-Mercedes CLK DTM and the 2005 AMG-Mercedes C-Klasse DTM cars available for purchase.
The AMG-Mercedes C-Klasse DTM 2005 is the successor to the AMG-Mercedes CLK DTM and led Gary Paffett to become champion of the DTM 2005 season in a nail-biting duel for the driver’s crown. With a score of 5 : 3 race victories, the title went to Paffett, who switched to Formula 1 as a test driver after the season.
The AMG-Mercedes CLK DTM 2003 absolutely dominated the season with 9 wins out of 10 races. “Mister DTM” Bernd Schneider managed to secure the championship ahead of Christijan Albers and his teammate Marcel Fässler, making it an all AMG-Mercedes Top 3.
Both car models are available at the RaceRoom Store for €3.98 each. There is also a great selection of liveries available for €0.29 a piece.
Besides adding the newly available DTM content, the update also includes a list of fixes and improvements such as a revised slowdown penalty, updated Adaptive AI logic, optimized streaming function of multiplayer races, and better readable HUD elements in VR.
