    The RaceAbout is a sports car prototype designed by students from Helsinki Polytechnic Stadia in Finland. Featured in Live for Speed, it is difficult to drive at its limit.

    Short summary describing this thing.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Conceived and created by students at Helsinki Polytechnic Stadia and the University of Art and Design Helsinki, the RaceAbout is a real-life two-seater roadster. The goal was simple: to create a car that gives its driver a great experience, be it on the race track or on the open road. The RaceAbout's design reflects this streamlined no-nonsense objective, and anyone who can handle the car will find it a thrill to work with.

    Permission was granted for the Live for Speed developers to add the RaceAbout into their game. It's competitive against the FZ50, but the thrill of taking a RaceAbout around a track makes it worth a try otherwise, at the very least.

    The RaceAbout also has hybrid and knobbly tire options, making it a possible choice for rallycross. This is highly discouraged, however, as the RaceAbout is especially hard to control on dirt.
