Real Racing 3 Le Mans 2017 Update (v5.3.0)
Classic rides. Classic race. Real Racing returns to Le Mans for its fourth year!
This is the first Porsche 911 to break with over half a century of design, and deliver a 4.0-liter flat-six sitting in front of the rear axle. Why the shift away from the previous engine layout and its traction advantage? Shifting the engine upwards vastly improves weight distribution, and it frees up space for that mighty diffuser you see jutting out of its rear. On top of beautiful stability and steering, the 2017 RSR should also see less disproportionate tyre wear. These changes might just be enough to bring Porsche and the 911 badge back to the top of LMGTE-PRO.
Imagine the sense of glee and superiority every European constructor felt in 1991 when they not only saw, but heard the Mazda 787B and its high-pitched whirring synonymous with rotaries. Now imagine those same Europeans' horror as that incomparable wail proceeded to beat them at the very sport they both launched and dominated for nearly a century. The Mazda 787B presented a truly unique competitor in its design. The 26B Wankel rotary engine, longitudinally mid-mounted, pushed a maximum output of 690 hp on race day via four rotors spinning in unison, matching the top speeds of over 200 mph its piston engine competitors kept hitting. The 1991 Mazda 787B remains the only non-piston engine car and the only Japanese constructor to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Named after its town of origin, Caterham are responsible for some of the purest driving experiences around, courtesy of the legendary Colin Chapman, and his mantra, “Simplify, then add lightness”. Based off of the Lotus Seven, which Caterham acquired from Chapman in 1973, the Seven 620R improves on its renowned sibling, the R500, with a 0-60mph time of 2.79 seconds, top speed of 155mph, and power-to-weight ratio of 568bhp-per-tonne. EVO Magazine gave the 620R its coveted track car of the year when it debuted in 2013. We'd tend to agree.
It had been seven years since a constructor other than Porsche had claimed pole position at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
It had been even longer since Jaguar had won (31 years to be precise). Fueled by a herculean partnership between Tom Walkinshaw Racing and essentially the entirety of Jaguar, the XJR-9 felt like the perfect embodiment of this monumental investment and lust for victory. A gargantuan 6.5-liter V12 engine and a magnificently constructed cage capable of containing such a beast gave Jaguar the fighting chance to dethrone the Le Mans incumbents. When it finally did, the racecar had covered 5,332.97 kilometers over 24 hours. That distance wouldn't be outdone until 2010.
Chances are that if you searched through the winners of any international motorsport championship in the 1980s you'll find the Porsche 962 nestled comfortably in there. Partly - no, exactly - the reason why this is considered to one of the greatest racecars ever. What made the Porsche 962C so special, however, was the constructor's resilience and ability to adapt to recent rule changes and remain a dominant force worldwide. After the Porsche 956 was banned due to driver safety concerns, the 962 emerged longer, and redesigned to fit the driver behind the front axle center line. The '87 962 specifically housed a brand new twin-turbo, 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine, along with other various modifications by engineering luminary, Norbert Singer, eager to dominate its rivals. It did, leading Porsche to a historic 7-year winning streak at the 24 Hours of Le Man.
A fresh batch of Flashback Events are available for you to conquer in Real Racing 3. Remember, these special events are able to be started at any time during the update, however once begun, no other Flashback Event may be started until the active one is finished. For the Le Mans 2017 update, racers will be able to earn in-game the 2014 Ferrari F14T, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Z51, and the 1985 Lamborghini Countach.

2016 Lamborghini Centenario
Built to celebrate Ferruccio Lamborghini's 100th birthday, the 2016 Lamborghini Centenario is the supercar worthy of a centennial tribute.

Not to sit idly on 53 years of engineering, the Centenario debuts the new Lamborghini rear-wheel steering system to improve agility and steering. Of course, only 40 of these tributes were produced and sold to the most committed devotees, so good luck driving one in real life. The 2016 Lamborghini Centenario will be earnable in-game during the Lamborghini's Legacy special event, starting March 12 (AEDT).
1995 McLaren F1 GTR
It's hard to imagine that on top of extensive bodywork changes, the 1995 McLaren F1 GTR actually had to be restricted to 600hp in order to compete in the '95 24 Hours of Le Mans. Reduced weight, and aerodynamic adjustments helped compensate for the neutering, leading to a faster, nimbler supercar that would lead McLaren to a historic victory in France. What was once a road-first supercar, became an on-track legend - a testament to the British manufacturer's engineering prowess. The 1995 McLaren F1 GTR will be earnable for in-game during the Flag Racing F1 GTR Championship starting March 5 (AEDT).

- EA news
The next evolution of Real Racing 3 is here. Formula E, the newest exciting motorsport debuts in this update with a brand-new track, and three teams from the FIA Formula E Championship!
This track first debuted at the Hong Kong ePrix in October 2016. Staged alongside the captivating Central Harbourfront of Hong Kong, this street circuit is situated among some of the city's iconic landmarks such as Victoria Harbour, The HK Observation Wheel, and the International Finance Center. The track is just under two kilometers long, featuring ten turns, including two tight hairpins, and a 555-meter straight. Streets circuits such as the Hong Kong Circuit present unique challenges to racers. Unlike purpose-built tracks, they feature uneven roads, differing grip levels, tight lines, and makeshift barriers, increasing the driving difficulty. One false move and your car doesn't go off-track; it goes into a wall.
- Formula E Cars:
The Formula E car is an open-wheel racing car whose chassis is comprised of carbon fiber and aluminium. The distinct high-pitched hum emanating from these cars is thanks to the 28kWh lithium-ion battery-powered 200kW engine sitting at the rear of the body. Combine those with the rest of the car components and you have a maximum weight of 800kg (driver included). FIA stipulates that while the powertrain designers can differ from team to team, chassis and batteries must remain the same. Racers can earn up to three exclusive Formula E cars in-game throughout the update from marquees; ABT Schaeffler, NexEV TCR, and Renault e dams.
- Formula E Gameplay
Since Formula E cars operate exclusively via electric power, a vital component of the motorsport is strategic battery management. As drivers accelerate, the onboard battery is drained of energy, and only while coasting/braking does the battery begin to regenerate lost energy. To be a truly competitive Formula E driver, racers will need to smartly adapt their racing style to ensure that they maintain enough charge to complete each event. If the battery runs out of charge, it's game over as soon as the car comes to a complete stop without crossing the finish line!
- 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT3
The inaugural GT3-variant of the Mercedes-AMG GT, complete with its guttural 6.2-liter V8 engine, is now earnable in-game. The relatively young Mercedes model enjoys the luxury of being only the second sports cars developed exclusively by Mercedes-AMG. Driving all its power through the rear wheels, the GT3 can still hold itself to the road with impressive prowess. This is accomplished in part via an almost absolute carbon-fiber construction, and one intimidatingly aerodynamic body kit. In short - it will stand toe-to-toe with any 911 or Italian tourer.
- Chevrolet Corvette C7.R
The endurance racing powerhouse returns for an encore Limited-Timed Special Event. If you missed out on earning the Chevrolet Corvette C7.R in-game back in June, now is your opportunity to retake the challenge, and experience one of the most fearsome, and burly American supercars running the WEC circuits right now.
Take to the streets of Hong Kong, and get ready for the future of racing! Available now!
What's New in Version 5.0.0. Dec 12th
- Formula E rides into Real Racing with the High Voltage special event, where you can earn the Renault e.dams Formula E SRT_01E

Real Racing 3 Bathurst Update (v4.6.2)
Game Update: Bathurst
September 22, 2016
Real Racing 3 travels to Bathurst, Australia! Jump in the driver’s seat of your favorite supercars and take part in what fans and followers have dubbed, “The Great Race”.
Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000
Nearing its 60th year, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 is a thousand-kilometer dash over 161 laps around Mount Panorama Circuit. The track is well known for its vast vertical difference of 174 meters between its highest, and lowest point, and on non-racing days, Mount Panorama is open to the public to drive on. Race drivers travel 6.213km per lap, and reach average speeds of 178km/h. Although additional marques have since returned to the V8 Supercars, for nearly two decades this annual event focused exclusively on one of the country's most fierce and enduring rivalries - Holden vs Ford. To a large extent, it still is. Car enthusiasts growing up in Australia were thrust in the direction of either one manufacturer or the other, and the thought of defecting was blasphemy. Holden have claimed 30 victories over the years, while Ford have 20.
Competing teams' vehicles are regulated to the same technical specifications. They each house 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engines pulling 635+ bhp, all powered through the rear wheels. 0-100kph is marked at 3.6 seconds, and top speed is 298kph (185mph). Minimum vehicle weight including driver is 1410kg. The cars are also electronically monitored and managed to ensure equality among competitors.
Racers will be able to experience the thrill and “true-blue” spirit of the event in-game alongside real-world event. The toughest decision you as the racer have to make is who to stand by. Do you choose the 2016 Holden Commodore VF or the 2016 Ford Falcom FG X? Race well enough, and you'll be able to earn both cars in-game.
2016 Ferrari F12 TDF
For a car that accelerates to 200kph faster than most cars reach half that speed, the Ferrari F12 TDF improves upon its gargantuan predecessor in almost every capacity. 110kg lighter, faster gearing, and new rear-wheel steering system make this one of the most belligerent cars on the road. The Ferrari F12 TDF is earnable in-game via the Tour Auto Speciale event.
2016 Nissan Altima
Nissan last held pole position in 1992, and since their return to Mount Panorama, the Japanese manufacturer looks starkly different from two decades ago. Today, the Nissan Altima stands toe-to-toe with the other marques, and is the reward for successfully completing Season 9 of The Gauntlet.
Real Racing Originals and Other Additions
As part of our journey to become the one-stop shop for all things motorsports, we're introducing a new series of exclusive in-game video content called Real Racing Originals. From getting an insider’s look at car manufacturers, to behind-the-scenes action at Firemonkeys, Real Racing Originals aim to expand on our offerings as a video game, and provide unique coverage of the thing we all love - cars that go really, really fast.

Players who already own the car will be awarded with a bounty of in-game gold. The 2014 Audi R8 V10 Spyder will also be earnable in-game, alongside an exclusive livery as part of the second Samsung limited-timed special event.

Real Racing 3 Jaguar Update (v4.5.1)
GAME UPDATE: THE EVOLUTION OF JAGUAR
August 17, 2016 Jaguar is on the prowl this update as Real Racing 3 introduces three stunning cars to that span the history of the legendary British manufacturer, as well as the 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat, and the 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera S.

The future of Real Racing
Firemonkeys posted: September 4, 2015
Where’s Real Racing 3 headed? Our senior producer Lu is here to tell you all about it.
I wanted to give you some exciting news about what’s coming down the line from the team at Firemonkeys for Real Racing.
Put simply, the goal for Real Racing is to become the one-stop-shop for all things Motorsports. We’re working to bring more genres of racing to the game, and bring fans of motorsports from all around the world together to enjoy an authentic racing experience, based around the biggest events in all the racing genres.
We started this last year with Le Mans, which became our first year-on-year event with the recent 2015 update. We’re going to continue doing things like that to bring these real world events from different genres to you every year.
On that note, I’m really excited that we’ve brought NASCAR to Real Racing. It’s perfect for us in the context of bringing not only real-life events to the game, but also continuing to expand to new genres of racing. This time we’ve recreated the Federated Auto Parts 400, which is just the beginning.
To make the best NASCAR experience as possible, we’ve not only added Richmond International Raceway to the game, we also brought you the top four race teams and fifteen of the real drivers. These are some of the biggest names in NASCAR; you’re racing alongside Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Danica Patrick, Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon and many more.
Like we did with Le Mans earlier this year, you can choose which of the four race teams you want to be a part of, and have a chance to win the hero car for that team. Also, replay the Federated Auto Parts 400 event to collect cars for all four of the featured NASCAR teams in the game.
This content is awesome, but to really bring out the characteristics of this racing genre from a gameplay perspective we had to tweak the game itself. For the first time ever, you’re racing against forty two other cars on the grid. We’ve never had so many, so it’s really exciting to play when you’re weaving your way through, which is part of the NASCAR experience.
To compliment this we also added some key gameplay features like drafting, giving you the ability to slingshot around other cars, and negotiating through some really tight packs to fight for your position. We adjusted some of the vehicle physics to get the feeling of the bumping and jostling like you see in NASCAR, which is a lot of fun. We’re keen to hear some feedback of what you think about the new physics and gameplay features, so let us know on Facebook or Twitter.
We know you’ll love this experience, and we’re very excited to add NASCAR to the growing portfolio of genres that we have for you in Real Racing.

What’s Ahead for Real Racing 3
Firemonkeys posted: December 13, 2013
We know some of you are wondering why Real-Time Multiplayer is App Store and Game Center exclusive, so we thought we’d fill you in.
Real Racing 3 is nearly a year old now, and it’s here to stay. The year ahead is an exciting one, with a long road map of where we want the game to go. One of those places is Real-Time Multiplayer. We know you have all wanted it, and we’ve been wanting it too!
A quality multiplayer experience isn’t a straightforward thing to create. In terms of both design and technology, there are a lot of factors that contribute to creating fun and balanced online gameplay.
As such, we made the decision to release Real-Time Multiplayer on the App Store and Game Center first as it allows us to start delivering on our long-term plans faster than we could otherwise. We want this to be as awesome as possible, so we want to hear from you!
When the update releases, go and play. Play with friends and strangers. Challenge yourself or simply show off. Tell us what you don’t enjoy and what you love. Let us know how we can make this the best multiplayer racing experience, on mobile or any platform!
The future is exciting, and we’re looking forward to hearing everything you have to say!

Real Racing 3 Ferrari Secondo Update (v1.5)
Firemonkeys posted: November 21, 2013
Experience the pinnacle of Italian engineering with hot new vehicles from the world’s most desired and cutting edge manufacturer: Ferrari.
• Race Replays – relive your victory with full cinematic cameras and playback controls
• 4 New Event Series – dominate the competition in over 100 new events
Real Racing 3 Ferrari Update (v1.4)
Firemonkeys posted: October 16, 2013
The latest update, which features Ferrari, also includes improvements to the way that Time Trials work. We’re tightening up regulations so that vying for the top spot on the leaderboard is even more gratifying, and we’ve added a new way to compare and compete.
Off-track disqualification is one of the biggest changes in this update: if all four wheels of your vehicle go off the track during a Time Trial, your time for that attempt will be considered invalid and the result will not be submitted to the leaderboard.
Additionally, this update will introduce seasonal leaderboards: Time Trial leaderboards will now only show the results submitted for the current update, and the competition will start anew for each update. If you’ve completed a Series to 100% prior to this reset and you race in the new Time Trials to bring the Series back up to 100% complete, you will collect another small Series completion bonus!
Ghost Challenges have also been included, which allow you to download and race against any player’s Time Trial ghost lap. This is a great opportunity to learn from the best or start a rivalry with Friends. Look for the “VS” button next to each entry on the leaderboard to access this feature.
We hope you enjoy these changes.
The Real Racing 3 team
Firemonkeys posted: (Exact date unknown - around Ferrari Update (1.4) - October 2013) From version 1.4 of Real Racing 3, there are 3 different Crew members that you can utilise to give you bonuses when you race:
Manager – doubles R$ race winnings if you win the event. Agent – doubles Fame if you win the event. Auto Engineer – no change in Servicing condition of the vehicle that you're currently using if you win the event. Crew members will sporadically be available to give you a bonus at no charge. The game will let you know when you have a Crew member free to help you out! Winning events attracts the attention of the Crew and makes them offer their services at no charge more frequently.
If a Crew member is not free when you want to utilise their bonus, you can pay Gold to hire them immediately.
Crew members will also level up as your Garage Value increases. Your Garage Value is defined by the combined cost of the cars you own and upgrades that are applied to them.
Leveling up a Crew member allows you to utilise their bonus in the corresponding section of the career. E.g. If your Manager is Amateur and you want to use them in an event that occurs in the Pro section of the career (as indicated by the labels running along the top of the main menu), you will have to increase your Garage Value until the Manager reaches Pro level. The amount you have to increase your Garage Value to level the Crew member up is indicated on the Crew hire popup.

Real Racing 3 Featured on Stage at Apple’s Press Conference
Firemonkeys Posted: September 12, 2012
Did you tune in today to Apple’s press conference? Are you excited for the new iPhone? We are too – especially after seeing our own Real Racing 3 on stage to demonstrate the graphic capabilities of the device.
We gave a first look of Real Racing 3 back at EA’s Summer Showcase event and impressed media and fans when we told them the high-quality graphics in our trailer video below was actual gameplay footage. Today you got to see what it will look like on the iPhone 5, which is the first phone that has the hardware to accurately display the game in all its glory – from the incredibly detailed cars, to track models, to the dynamic reflections. Now the cars in Real Racing 3 look like the real deal with chrome alloys, carbon fiber, leather interiors, and even metallic and pearlescent paint. We’ve also announced an all-new rear view mirror that will give players important cues about their competitors, as well as time shifted multiplayer, a brand new feature that leverages Game Center iOS 6 challenges.
Time shifted multiplayer in action
As Rob Murray, Executive Producer at Firemonkeys said: “Apple technology continues to evolve the mobile games experience, and we believe games like Real Racing 3 best highlight what consumers have to look forward to with these advancements. The game’s dynamic reflections, sharp track shadows and other beautifully detailed assets will take full advantage of the iPhone 5’s new visual capabilities to deliver a stunning mobile gaming experience that rivals many console games.”
