Video: Automobilista 2 historic Silverstone VR hotlap

Automobilista 2 was due to receive the historic Silverstone DLC on August 7th, but has been delayed until August 11th.

Reiza have treated their fans with a preview on their YouTube channel with this hotlap at the historic Silverstone layout in a contemporary 1991 Formula car.

“This week we travel back almost 30 years to 1991, for what was then a fresh major reform to the classic track as it had been through the 60s, 70s and 80s.

This was the first layout to feature the fast sweeping Maggots – Becketts – Chapel sequence which stands to this day as one of the most challenging series of corners in racing!

The rest of the lap had plenty more excitement to offer: a very interesting albeit short-lived sequence of left-right high speed sweepers from Stowe all the way to Priory, for the technical and slower last complex – all surrounded by high curbs that would demand absolute precision!

This is Silverstone as it was at the peak of Mansell-Mania in the early 1990s, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to recreate another piece of motorsports history in Automobilista 2!

Silverstone will be the 2nd DLC pack for AMS2, featuring this classic track in four versions – 1975, 1991, 2001 and 2020. The pack is now scheduled for release along with our new game update on August 11th.”

The update will also bring some improvements to the UI and championship mode, a revised penalty system and some new developments for the AI.

We will be back tomorrow with a full review of the new Silverstone DLC.
