    Formula Two announces new partnership with rFactor2
    All 2012 JPH1B cars to feature in latest version of worldwide racing simulation
    The FIA Formula Two Championship is pleased to announce a new partnership with Image Space Incorporated (ISI), makers of leading racing simulator rFactor, which will see its entire 2012 grid featured in the brand new rFactor2.

    rFactor2 is the forthcoming sequel to the award winning computer racing simulation which has become the standard for a simulated racing experience. Developed by ISI, who also produced the Formula 1TM titles for EA Games, the company has more than 20 years' experience in the market, developing racing software used by both amateurs and professional racing teams.

    Due for release later in the year, all of this season's upgraded JPH1B F2 cars - featuring new Yokohama tyres and carbon brakes - will appear on the new version, with each one recreated with meticulous detail. Every aspect of the Williams designed car, from handling characteristics through to the pitch of its 500bhp 1.8-litre turbocharged engine, have been captured, aided by Formula Two's Chief Engineer James Goodfield.

    "We've spent many hours working with ISI to ensure we recreate the highly sophisticated and new-spec F2 car with the utmost accuracy, right down to the physics and the engine note," said Goodfield. "We're very pleased with the results and feel confident it will provide professional racing drivers, as well as amateurs, with a simulation as close to the real thing as possible."

    He added: "Having all of this year's cars and their liveries featured will also provide increased exposure to our drivers and their sponsors thanks to the global following of rFactor."

    Timothy Wheatley, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Licensing at rFactor, commented: "We are extremely happy to work with the FIA Formula Two Championship and MotorSport Vision to bring the Williams JPH1B Formula Two car to rFactor2.

    "It is exciting to know that budding race car drivers and members of the general public alike, will be able to train and have fun with this car using our software.

    "rFactor2 is a major advancement in home simulation technology, as for the first time drivers are tested by a changing environment. Drivers will cope with different levels of track grip, changing light, a full wet-dry weather system and an ultra-realistic tyre model."

    rFactor2 is schedule to be released later in the year with further details available at http://rfactor.net/web/rf2/. For more information on the Formula Two series visit http://www.formulatwo.com

    Does it mean, ISI has developed simulation of turbo charged engines for rF2?

    No this didn't give us rights to the tracks, unfortunately. However, we should have some.

    Great news, and the renders are great, the model seems to have a pretty good level of poly (triangles).

    It actually depends on another car coming, whether it will be finished before or after that car.
