Next to the FIA WTCC seasons of 2006 and 2007 RACE 07 also contains open wheeler and sports car racing such as Formula 3000, Formula BMW and Radical SR3 and SR4.
A new and unique helmet cam view has been implemented to support the open cockpit cars specifically. This helmet view is directly affected by different weather effects as well as dirt and bugs on the helmet visor. On top of this comes a new animation for removing virtual "Tear offs" from the helmets visor, just as in real racing where the helmet is heavily exposed during the races.
RACE 07 is also introducing a new "action camera cockpit view" that will add even more immersion and sensation of speed when driving from the cockpit.
RACE 07 supports both a normal according to real life championship mode as well as a new custom championship mode where you can mix cars and classes, not to mention tracks, as you wish. In addition RACE 07 also supports custom skins, especially important for communities and league racing.
The late changes in the calendar of the FIA WTCC events has resulted in several new circuits for SimBin to implement into RACE 07 and for this reason the release is now set to autumn 2007.
