How to Install Circuit Track Mod on rFactor 2 (New Look)
- First, we need to have the track or circuit file that we want to install. The easiest way is to do a search on google. In this example I want to install the Imola circuit, so I search for the keyword "Imola track rFactor 2" then several options appear, please find and select a website that provides downloadable track files.
- Please download the track/circuit file you want to install later in the game. Files that are ready to install usually have the type (suffix) ".rfcmp".
- If it has been successfully downloaded, please save the file in the Packages folder with the directory below. ".... Steam/steamapps/common/rFactor 2/Packages". Please adjust the local disk according to where you installed the rFactor 2 game. For example, because I installed the game on "Local Disk C" then I have to save it in the C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/rFactor 2/Packages folder. If you install it on Local Disk D, please adjust it, the important thing is to save it in the Packages folder.

Recommended website for downloading rFactor 2 tracks
If you are confused about choosing a trustworthy website, here are some websites that I personally often visit to find/download track files to install in the rFactor 2 game.
In general, almost all websites that appear on Google searches (especially on page 1) are trustworthy and safe. What may be different is the download process, some require us to have an account first (such as the race department website) in order to download files, some can be downloaded directly without having an account on the website.
Everything returns to our individual tastes, if we don't log in we can save time and go straight to the download process. If by logging in, the website is usually more promising, such as having a complete track collection and other benefits.
See also the track file size used, if the file size is getting bigger, it is possible that the track details are also more accurate, such as buildings or the surrounding conditions are very similar to the original, and vice versa. The file size also affects the game loading process and the required resources.
