    My favourite open wheeler right now is the Formula Trainer Advanced and I recently stumbled over the Formula BMW (rFactor 2 mod), which is also a fun vehicle to drive. Since REIZA has the BMW license, I was wondering if something like Formula BWM is planned in a future release. I know it ain't in their roadmap, but they surprised us already with some unannounced releases in the past :).

    I don't know much about the entry-level classes, nice to have would also be some of the following :
    - Formula 4
    - USF2000
    - SCCA classes
    - Formula 1000
    - Formula Skip Barber 2000

    I know the Formula 1 has more fans, but maybe I'm not the only one enjoying some slower paced races :whistle:

    Yeah. I hope so, but Formula Trainer and F-Vee are great entry-level cars, tho.

    There is a Brazilian Formula 4 series starting this year so we can hope.

    Brazilian F4 would be nice, having some sort of F2/GP2 car to bridge the gap between F3 & F1 would be nice too.

    Rf2 have a fantastic selection of junior formula cars, like the various tatuus models and the f2000, which would all fit well within ams2. The current f309 and f301 are a bit ancient for my liking.

    rather than just do the same as ever other sim , i’d like to give a Shameless plug for Toyota Racing series ( TRS ) that all the former and future formula stars come down under to NZ to prove themselves and bolster there CV .
    it would be unique.
    also how cool would it be to get Rodin on board with their bespoke formula car . something like that would offer exclusive content.

    I don't own many sims, but is the Formula BMW / USF2000 so over presented in sims in general o_O
    An Austalia/NZ trackpack also would be a dream, combined with the Toyota Racing series.
    Seems like a Tatuus license would bring the most entry-level open wheelers :)

    Another entry level open wheeler would be great. I drove quite a lot the formula Vee and the Trainer advanced. A car like in the TRS seems like unique content and great to drive.

    they are basically a Tatuus F3 with a toyota turbocharged engine, so perhaps a Tatuus license would be more achievable than toyota. then just let the livery editors do there magic.
    but maybe that’s just too much like the current F3s .
    so the idea of the for-mentioned Brazilian F4 series sounds like a better fit .

    I am in complete agreement with this thread. Create a single car that could open up a series - such as Skip Barber (my personal favourite), or USF2000. Please Reiza!!!

    Hehe how about a replicate of a Formula Ford 1600 (FF1600).
    Pesonally it could be fun to compare a Reiza repli with the RL version I have some experience in when I was young.:D

    Found also the open wheel classes of The Sports Car Club of America :

    Formula Atlantic , Formula 1000, Formula SCCA, Formula Continental, Formula Mazda, Formula F , Formula 500 and Formula Vee.

    Formula 500 looks like fun :D

    Brazilian F4 would be a really fitting series for inclusion.

    Yes, it would be great. They will be using the T-021, the most modern Tatuus F4 car in the world currently.

    I always thought Live For Speed's implenetation of the Formula BMW was well done:
    LFS - Content - Cars - Formula BMW FB02

    But even more, I agree with this:
