RACE Pro might not have set the racing world on fire in terms of sales--the Xbox 360 version has sold just shy of 20,000 units in the U.S. as of June--but the game's developer SimBin is pushing ahead with DLC support for the game. The first pack was released in June and included eight cars including several Dodge Charger models, a Cadillac CTS-V, and Chevrolet Camaro, as well as Italy's Imola circuit.

On Wednesday and Thursday of this week, the second and third DLC packs for RACE Pro were released. Here's the contents of each:

DLC Pack #2 (800 MS points)
Cars:

  • Pagani Zonda R
  • Volvo Amazon
  • '71 BMW 2002
  • '68 Mini Cooper S
  • Volvo P1800
  • Opel Commodore GS3000
  • '73 BMW 3.0 CSL
  • '74 Chevrolet Corvette
  • '70 Chevrolet Camaro

Tracks:

  • Spa
  • Mid Ohio
  • Mid Ohio (alternative layout 1)
  • Mid Ohio (alternative layout 2)

DLC Pack #3 (560 MS points)
Cars:

  • WTCC 2008 (Lada 110/Volvo C30 models)
  • International Formula Master

Tracks:

  • Okayama
  • Estroil

I'm glad to see Spa-Francorchamps, one of the world's great racing circuits, finally make its way into RACE Pro; it's great news for the folks still playing the game. Still, the back-to-back timing of this DLC is puzzling. If I had to guess, I'd say SimBin is getting all of the content out there, in the hopes that race fans will grab it before the fall rush of Forza 3, Need for Speed: Shift, and Gran Turismo PSP madness begins.

if only SimBin could fix all those nasty bugs in Race Pro. Even with those I like RacePro more then Forza2 or Forza3. Damn, if they only could fix those bugs!

As a big fan of the PC version of this game (Race 07/GTR Evolution) I was initially excited about getting a high caliber racing sim on the Xbox. However, the lackluster reviews and poor sales kept me from buying. I've gone back to Forza 2 and am anxiously awaiting Forza 3 and I just don't think there is any way that this game can compete with either of those so I'm going to refrain from getting it and save my money for Forza 3.

I think this game deserves a bit more credit..and a larger budget so they can really show people what they can do. For a smaller budget, i think they made this game work quote nicely.
