To help you chose your car for the race, we have gathered all the available cars in this thread (because browsing through all the 33 cars in the game can be very long as rFactor takes ages to load each skin What a Face ). We took the real car pictures, but of course all are available in the mod.
This topic is locked - please submit you car choice in the main race thread.

------------------

Pour vous aider à choisir votre voiture pour la course, nous avons rassemblé dans ce topic toutes les voitures disponibles (car faire défiler les 33 voitures dans le jeu peut prendre beaucoup de temps, rFactor mettant pas mal de temps à charger chaque skin What a Face). Nous avons pris les photos des vraies voitures, mais elles correspondent bien entendu aux voitures disponibles dans le mod.
Ce topic est fermé, merci de nous communiquer nous votre choix de châssis dans le topic principal de la course.
