    All donors and contributors should have just received an email with instructions to download v0.9 HD.

    In case you donated and did not receive the email, please PM me with the e-mail you used on the Paypal donation form.

    From now on 2 versions are available: Luccaring v0.9 SD is packaged with reduced textures resolution for better performance on lower end PCs and to fit RaceDepartment maximum upload size limits; Luccaring v0.9 HD is packaged with full resolution textures and is available for download to contributors on the official website www.directo.it/luccaring
    LuccaRing SD should look not much different than the HD version up to 1920x1080. If you can afford a powerful PC, a triple monitor setup and a good graphics card with at least 2GB of ram (...and feel you can live with sligthly longer load times), please consider making a donation to enjoy the track in full-res, and to help us with hosting, bandwidth costs and further development. Folder structure and file names of SD and HD versions are exactly the same so they should be fully compatible for online racing. This has not been tested (yet).

    Please take 2 minutes to read the disclaimer and release notes!

    Have fun, feedback is welcome as usual so please report any issues/bugs!


    LuccaRing “Circuito dei Baluardi” is the first virtual race track built around the medieval town of Lucca. The track is developed from scratch for the best made in Italy racing simulator: Assetto Corsa by Kunos Simulazioni.

    Depending on user’s feedback, we plan to export it to other platforms in the future, and to add several alternative layouts.

    The 3D model is maintained and developed by ir Sindaco with the support of Directo web addict, and carefully reproduces all the road surfaces, buildings, assets and locations of the real ring road of the city of Lucca. The track was designed and built by 3D-tracing the characteristics of the town with the help of highly detailed points clouds, reference and on-site measurements, to provide the best simulation of a real (yet fictional) street track.

    Thanks to the unique features of the city and its road network, with the majestic city walls as a backdrop to the circuit, what you get is a virtual driving experience like no other.

    Be sure to read the included Release Notes / Changelog, and to visit the official LuccaRing website for the latest news, updates, screenshots and more.

    Be a contributor to help this virtual town grow to completion
    ...and get early beta access to major builds!

    Great looking track and fun to drive.

    Reminds me of some of the street courses from Gran Turismo.

    Great circuit, well done! Looking forward to version 1.0 ! The section where the trees line both sides of the road is excellent, extremely immersive!

    This is a really nice track but for some reason I just can't seem to master it. Perhaps more time spent on it is needed.

    Anyway I took the new Porsche 718 Cayman S out for a quick lap on street tyres and no assists.

    You can find the lap here if anyone is interested:

    AC lacks circuit tracks and this one is a good one! Very good for lapping, racing... My only suggestion: A night version with lights and all stuff would look very cool and pretty. You can force night using Wagmum´s weather MOD night, so its a question of putting lights on the buildings (I saw some light poles on already).

    One of those track, where you keep getting back to do some more laps, or race. I find it very 1930's placebo just with too much safety :D It is nice track for Mercedes W125. This is top quality track, one of the best !

    This work is stunning. A beautiful track. Makes me want to visit this town someday. I donated for the HD version which runs perfectly on my PC, better than official content Barcelona GP. Two suggestions for improvement
    1) The 2D people in the background are not at the same standard as the rest of the track IMO
    2) Make a reverse version of the track, held in the fall season, with all of the beautiful trees in fall colors! That would be gorgeous! I'd donate again.

    Thank you for this work.

      :) thanks! You can fix people by editing the .ini files in track folder. Don't remember exact values but quite an easy fix, i'll put it in next update of course.

    Magnifique! Simply brilliant work. Beautiful, challenging and fun. Set the time to 18:00 and you can enjoy a nice, lazy Italian summer evening (while doing 250kmh between concrete barriers).

    One of the most detailed SIM tracks I have ever seen. Beautifully textured with great attention to detail. A must for any SIM racer, congratulations to the developers! I hope the authors will bring the track to rFactor 1 & 2.
