Recommended PC Spec
PC specification is VERY important when using the VBOX Simulator software because it will load up the CPU a lot more whilst running the game. We advise using the game’s recommended specification as the very minimum.
A high spec CPU, 16 GB of RAM and a decent graphics card are recommended by Racelogic.
