Studio 397 is based in the Netherlands and has a global team of developers and artists building the rFactor 2 title. Our mission is to create the most realistic, accurate and engaging sim racing platform to date, through advanced physics, new graphics engine and competition infrastructure.
Iterations of our physics engine power multiple racing titles, it is also known as one of
the most robust in simulated racing. The physics engine includes dynamic aero calculations which affect handling, we have the most comprehensive tyre model in sim racing which includes, flat spots, deformation and deflection – our continual
development means we are at the cutting-edge of consumer simulation.
Our tracks are built from scratch, ensuring that every detail is covered from surface aberrations
to trackside objects, to multiple camera views. We like to develop areas outside of the track, such as paddock areas, to allow drivers to experience the ‘race experience’.
