App Review: Real Racing 3 With BMW Generations Challenge Content

In recent months, an app that has received a fair bit of usage through my limited free time is Real Racing 3. An amusing race game experience for a tablet or smartphone, the game has provided some wonderfully rendered digital representations of popular race tracks and automobiles. The list of race cars available on the app currently amounts to 146 spanning the gamut of classes and categories.

Real Racing 3's gaming action is also an ever-expanding virtual world. During Daytona Speedweeks, an expanded collection of NASCAR experiences were added to the game. Real Racing 3 also provides a frequent assortment of limited-time challenges allowing users of opportunity to win game currency and even vehicles by accomplishing races on a scale. For April, a Generations Challenge had added a pair of BMWs to the Real Racing 3 platform.

Representing an era where car manufacturers competed in auto racing with specially-prepped, limited-production factory vehicles, the BMW 3.0 CSL have now been added as a new playable vehicle on Real Racing 3. The real-life version of the BMW 3.0 CSL debuted on the race track in 1972 as a lightweight version of the previous 3.0 CS. The race cars were able to boast weight-savings thanks to thinner sheetmetal body shell and the use of aluminum for door, hood and trunk panels. Removal of trim pieces and other components deemed non-essential for racing was also employed on the BMW 3.0 CSL. The 3.0 CSL's aerodynamic bodywork resulted in the vehicle being called "the Batmobile".

The reign of the this vehicle was iconic for BMW. During its competitive racing years, the BMW 3.0 CSL would be driven to divisional European Touring Car Championships in six seasons from 1973 to 1979. Two Le Mans class victories and a 1975 IMSA GT Championship were also attributed to the vehicle before it was retired.

Needing only a tablet, Real Racing 3 will introduce many of us to the beauty of the BMW 3.0 CSL. I recommend that you complete the Generation Challenge. With a minimal expense of in-game currency, the classic BMW 3.0 CSL is practically gifted to you in the first two levels of competition.

Joining the BMW 3.0 CSL in the Real Racing 3 game is a digital recreation of the modern recreation of the 1970s car. Talking about the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R, the concept car was introduced in 2015 as a celebration to BMW's 40th anniversary of officially operating in North America. Heavily based on the original race car, you can notice the resemblance with the large rear spoiler. The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R uses 21st century engineering to revisit the lightweight construction measures. This time, a carbon fiber roll cage is integrated into the vehicle. Other details of the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R includes laser lighting, 21-inch alloy wheels and a minimalist interior.

Unlike the 1970s version of the vehicle, winning the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R is a trickier undertaking. I'm currently trapped within the third level due to expensive in-game currency needed to upgrade the vehicle to win upcoming stages. Time and time again, this becomes the real problem with Real Racing 3. Sometimes, the upgrade or the cars are simply too costly. Of course, like almost every free game app, Real Racing 3 offers the opportunity to in-game credits with real money. So, as I'm writing this review, the 3.0 CSL Hommage R untouchable for me.

  Photo Credit: James Gilbert/Getty Images untitled On Wednesday of this week (May 5 th of 2021), NASCAR will formally present the sport’s newest Cup Series chariot. Originally called the Gen 7 car before adopting the moniker of the Next Gen car, the vehicle was initially planned to be part of the 2021 racing season but was pushed to 2022 due to the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 disrupting development as well as team finances to implement the Next Gen car. From the details already leaked about the Next Gen car, the 2022 Cup season is destined to deliver the biggest learning curve ever to drivers, team and fans. Ahead of the official unveiling of the car, indications of a new spec chassis, six-speed manual transmission, independent rear suspension as well as a larger diameter, single-lug wheels are radically going to reshape the operations of NASCAR Cup Series teams on and off the track. With anticipation building towards the planned on-track introduct

Morbid Motoring History: Transaxle of James Dean’s Porsche 550 Spyder Up For Auction

Photo Credit: Porsche AG untitled More than 65 years after James Dean’s fatal highway crash on U.S. Route 466, a verifiable piece has surfaced of the vehicle involved in the ill-fated Porsche 550 Spyder the 24-year-old actor drove in his last moments of life. Through an online auction being held on Bring A Trailer , buyers with a desire to obtain a rather ghoulish gearbox. The Porsche 550 Spyder was one of the first purpose-built race cars assembled to establish a name of what was once a small sports car located in Stuttgart, Germany. A derivative of Porsche’s 356 production car, the 550 Spyder’s compact, lightweight stature (the 550 was in reference to the vehicle’s weight in kilograms) combined with a mid-mounted 1,500 cc flat-four engine proved almost instantly superior in competition. Entering competition in 1953 by Porsche, the 550 Spyder cemented much of the early on-track success for the brand including a class victory at the 1953 24 Hours of Le Mans. A total of 90

A New Four-Runner: Helio Castroneves Wins Monumental 2021 Indy 500

Photo Credit: Joe Skibinski/IndyCar untitled As race day for the 105 th edition of the Indianapolis 500 at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway approached, a number of favourites emerged through the practices and qualifying session. Six-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon topped the lists of many analysts after he captured the race’s pole position . Dixon’s #9 Chip Ganassi Racing’s Dallara-Honda posting the fastest time in Friday’s Carb Day practice only solidified the logic of picking the New Zealander to win. Other names favoured for having the best chances to drink milk in Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s victory lane included Colton Herta, Rinus VeeKay, Alex Palou and Alexander Rossi. Besides Scott Dixon, it is surprising to conceive after the 2021 running of the 500-mile greatest spectacle in racing that another more veteran name wasn’t immediately entered into top contention prior to the green flag. Unlike the COVID-19 delayed 2020 event that ran on August 23 in 85
