The first car for rFactor under Studio 397 has been released! 

The Cooper Tires USF2000 Series an accessible American open wheel series officially sanctioned by INDYCAR, is a popular proving ground for ambitious drivers wanting to progress to the next level. 

The USF2000 car, powered by Mazda, from Van Diemen is an excellent entry-level low-downforce car. It’s grippy, yet nimble.

The 2016 spec USF2000 uses Van Diemen/Elan DP08 chassis and is powered by Mazda'...
