Tips / Warnings

  • For Test .048., it is highly recommended to avoid taking detours just to collect Quality Checks on the track due to the risk of running into traffic.
    • Between the Championship Update and 2018 Summer Update, traffic was removed from Iceland, making all tests on Iceland easier. Even so, taking detours to collect Quality Checks is not ideal as it is possible to finish this test with a minimum of 4 (with at least 15 QCs collected) or 5 Proto Keys (with at most 14 QCs collected) used by taking the shortest route to achieve all 3 time goals, depending on how many Quality Checks can be found along the shortest possible route.

Trivia

  • Throughout Labs .001. and .002., the BMW R&D staff member helps engineer the car's interior and create a specialized augmented reality helmet for the player. In Lab .003., the staff members begin working on the car exterior.
    • This is based on the real life's concept of using the helmet's visor to display information to the driver.
  • The quote in Test 45 makes a reference to the BMW 3.0 CSL's success at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (now known as WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca).
  • The layout of the Tests, Labs, and Ultimate AI Challenges are reused from the ED Design Torq's R&D event.
  • This R&D's layout of test and labs has been reused for many later R&Ds, including GT by CITROEN, Porsche 911 GT3 RS, BMW S 1000 RR, and Rimac Concept S' R&D events, albeit with some minor differences.
    • In the case of the Rimac Concept S's event, it is identical to the one of the Hommage in terms of the tests and tracks used.
  • Taking almost one full year to be revived, the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage's R&D event has the fourth longest gap between its first appearance and its revival.
