Assetto Corsa – Tatuus FA01 Officially Licensed
Kunos Simulazioni has officially licensed the Tatuus FA01 for Assetto Corsa, thus marking the game’s first confirmed open wheel car to date. The Tatuus FA01 competes in the Italian ACI CSAI Formula Abarth championship. The Kunos team will be working closely with Tatuus engineers in producing a highly accurate driving simulation. The Italian Motorsport Federation runs and tests a Tatuus simulator out of Vallelunga racing track for training purposes. Since Kunos Simulazioni is based out of the Vallelunga racing track, they will be able to access all relevant data and work closely with software developers, vehicle manufacturers, and race instructors from the Federal Racing School. For more information on the Tatuus Fa01, please refer to their PDF brochure.
Kunos Simulazioni Modeler, Aristotelis Vasilakos had this to say about the Tatuus FA01:
“From a driver’s point of view, this car is a delight to drive. It has plenty of both mechanical and aero grip and can carry incredible amounts of speed into turns. It is very stable under braking and acceleration and you can safely drive it around any circuit without problems, making it the perfect single seater for youngsters starting out in racing. Still, it is a very sensitive racing car and the more you push to find the limits the more difficult it becomes to find lap time. The driver ends up braking very late into every curve, turning in very fast and stepping on the gas pedal as soon as possible. When you reach this kind of limit, then you’re really on the edge, and being so fast in any corner can make the car reactions tricky to handle, so try to not upset it as it might turn around and bite you.
We think this is the perfect car to start learning the secrets of car setup and racing against others. Do not expect to be able to drift everywhere around the circuit with this car, but do expect to be able to carry out brisk manoeuvres while surrounded by your opponents without fear of losing control of the car.”
