Just in time for the start of NASCAR season, The Pits have released their highly anticipated Stock Car Challenge mod for rFactor. Here's a local download mirror (94MB) for the main mod and the 2006 Nextel Cup HiRes Carset (54MB). More download mirrors can be found in this thread at The Pits forum. There are tracks, setups, templates and low res skins available so head over there and check it out. The Pits also recently released a video preview of the mod.

rFactor v1250 Released

ISI has released their latest update for rFactor. You can download v1250 from this local mirror (11MB) or from the list of links provided at For a list of changes and fixes included in the v1250 patch, head over to rF Central. You'll need to have v1150 already installed in order to apply the latest patch. Probably one of the biggest changes you'll notice is the new spotter. Just in time for that highly anticipated stock car mod? Let's hope so =)

Daytona Road Course Track for rFactor and GTR2

With the 24 Hours of Daytona coming up this weekend, I spent some time checking out the Daytona Road Course tracks for rFactor and GTR2. These tracks have been available for a week or two so many of you probably have them already but if not, here you go. The track was converted from Nascar Racing 2003 by James Burroughs of and he did a great job on them (also grab River Road Raceway from his site if you don't have it, it's another great track for rFactor). I like his latest version of the Daytona RC even better than the one he previously released that was later pulled due to some permission issues. Download links for both the rFactor and GTR2 versions can be found below. There's also a link to the fix for the rFactor version that includes the correct colors for the rumble strips. The screenshots are from rFactor using the ProtoRacer mod. For multi-class racing on this track, check out the All Car Challenge mod at rFactor Central.

Off Road Racing Truck Mod for rFactor

Madcowie has released his Off Road Racing Trucks mod for rFactor. Yes, it's as much fun as it looks! For now, the ORR mod includes one very nice stadium track which can be raced in both directions. There are more tracks on the way. The mod is a blast and definitely worth a try, even if it's "not your thing". Download mirrors and screenshots can be found below. If you want to try these ORR trucks with some other tacks, check out the V8 Buggies mod which includes the Iron Mountain dirt track. Frank.f55's Pike's Peak mod would also be worth a try with these beasts.
