AMS2 now also has this single seater from North America to offer
The vehicles will form their own category in the game as “Formula USA” and will be divided into three generations. It starts with the Gen2 vehicles of the 1995 Indycar season. Specifically, these are the Reynard 98i, Swift 009c and Lola T98 as well as Cleveland Burke Lakefront Airport Circuit and Watkins Glen International (4 layouts).
If the development studio adheres to the originally communicated plan, the remaining vehicles – Formula USA Gen1 with Reynard 95i and Lola T95, Formula USA Gen3 with Reynard 2Ki and Lola B2K / 00 – as well as the third track will be available shortly before Christmas 2021. After the final licensing details have been clarified, the secret of the third race course has now been revealed: It is Road America.
