Ever wondered how rFactor 2 is whilst using VR? For some people, VR is a mixed bag of total immersion but also some can suffer from nausea and sickness.

For those that are thinking of getting into sim racing with VR, we see how rFactor 2 works with it.

In this video by Nick Grabau he takes to the track using VR in rFactor 2 and gives a great review of how it all works as well as displaying driving with VR.

Nick goes on to mention “We took the Porsche 991 RSR GTE out to Spa (because we didn’t get an F1 Race at Spa this year) for a 20 min race with day/night cycle enabled to test out the VR experience”.

“I was quite impressed with how it looked and performed (running on mostly high settings @ 1440p), there were some strange stuttering/shimmering glitches I noticed, but nothing that took away TOO much from the experience”.
