Game Stock Car is a racing simulator that places great emphasis on reproducing the influence of a car's settings on its behaviour on the track. In order to create this production, we used an engine and solutions known from another title which is very popular among lovers of realistic production under the four-wheel mark, namely rFactor.
The production of the Reiza studio is the official game of the Brazilian Serial Car Championship. This means that the player can play the role of the 34 drivers participating in this racing series. All teams use JL G-09 cars powered by 520 hp V8 engine, which speed up to 270 km/h. They have two body models: Chevrolet Vectra and Peugeot 307, which do not differ in parameters. The vehicles use a turbocharging system which allows for the addition of 50 horsepower several times during the race.
Just like in a real series, players visit 10 tracks in Game Stock Car, which are meticulously reproduced. Although most of them are known only to Brazilians, it is worth mentioning two famous venues known internationally for hosting Formula 1 and the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC), namely Interlagos and Curitiba.
In addition to participating in the whole season, players can also try their hand at single competitions with training and qualification sessions. For lovers of rivalry with living opponents there is a multiplayer mode for up to 34 people.
Game Stock Car uses the gMotor2 engine known from rFactor and Race 07, among others. This means that the title looks similar from the graphical point of view - the focus is more on realistic representation of driving physics than car models and environment. However, the visual setting does not prevent you from enjoying the competition. Special emphasis was placed on the view from the cockpit of the car, which is a tribute to the fans of the full simulation.
